Euphoria has taken the world by storm. And by that, I mean teenagers who run social media accounts that aggregate screenshots from TV shows and caption it with the phrase “iconic.” However, there’s another big fan of the HBO show and that is Britney Spears! She recently sang the praises of Euphoria and its ability to help with mental illness. I don’t know what’s more surprising: that Britney’s a Euphoria fan or that a show about messy teens works as well as Valium!
Britney expressed her love for the show in a recent Instagram post. via People:
Britney Spears is feeling euphoric!
In a social media post shared on Friday, the pop star sang her praises of Euphoria, revealing how it has helped her with her mental health.
The “Lucky” singer, 40, shared a clip of Zendaya playing her character Rue Bennett in season one of the HBO show and wrote, “For MENTAL AWARENESS WEEK a little while ago I watched this insane amazing show @euphoria … Good God it’s too good !!!! I’m a little behind anyways 🤷🏼♀️ !!!! Watching this and being entertained by these crazy plots I suddenly felt all my anxiety go away … the show was like meditation !!!!”
“It put a HUGE grin on my face … and if you want to be zen … there’s sound therapy 👂🏼 … stillness … yoga 🧘🏼♀️ … monk retreats … but last but definitely not least, train your thoughts to think things that make you SMILE … YES you know THOSE 👍👍👍 !!!! YOU GOT IT ???? KEEP SMILING 😄,” she continued.
It’s an interesting viewing choice for mental awareness week, but whatever works, I guess! In the past, Euphoria has been attacked online for “glorifying” drug abuse, so Britney’s glowing review should put an end to that criticism. Take that D.A.R.E.! Maybe Britney could sense that the Euphoria cast has also experienced unfair work environments and really felt connected to the actors. That or she simply enjoys shows that feature insane, melodramatic storylines that are left completely unresolved. Considering all that she’s been through, it’s nice that Britney has found something that helps her deal with her inner demons. Now if she can find a show that’ll help her handle her outer demons!
