Hi mommy and daddy, I am a star ⭐️ now have you heard ??? Carry on, peeps,” she captioned the post. In the concerning clip, Britney talks in a semi-Australian/British accent. It starts out with Britney talking about a diamond panel dress that her girlfriend helped her sew. Then, Britney says, “they sent me the dress, so I didn’t have to sew it myself!” She then poses and dances with the dress. Then she changes it up and talks about when fans called the cops to her house for a well-being check after she deleted her Instagram, saying, “So guys, I just want you to know if I shut down my Instagram, do not call the cops.” The next cut of the video shifts, with Britney exclaiming, “Don’t ever be a roller coaster!” before darting off screen and running back across before disappearing again.It ends with Britney yelling, “Never be a roller coaster!!!”—–

Not only does he have no clue who I am, even if he did, he’d clearly [rather be doing something else].’ “Just let him go. So my heart goes out to the kids that get kind of pushed into taking pictures with me.” (Yahoo!)

Some people called it a “flex”, because he’s showing off his Oscar. Others praised Will for being able to laugh at himself. But not everyone approved.

Mindhunter director, executive producer and showrunner David Fincher has confirmed that the Netflix series will not return for a third season. Based on the true crime book of the same name, the show first launched on the streamer in 2017. Set in 1977, it followed FBI agents Holden Ford (Jonathan Groff) and Bill Tench (Holt McCallany) as they attempt to get inside the minds of a serial killer – a completely new brand of murderer at the time. A second season was released in 2019, with the series soon gaining a strong fanbase. However, despite the show’s popularity, plans for a third season were put on hold by Netflix in 2020.
