This isn’t the first time a hilarious story from Spears has amused fans and casual followers alike. In March, the singer shared on Instagram that she’d run a 100-meter dash in just under six seconds — which would make her the fastest person in the world, outrunning famous athletes like Usain Bolt (who can run a 100-meter dash in about 10 seconds). 

After Spears was met with surprised reactions, she clarified in a subsequent video that “obviously I was joking about running the 100 meter dash in 5.97 seconds …. the world record is held by Usain Bolt which is 9.58 seconds.” 

Even though the pop star backtracked on her original claim, fans of Spears still expressed their support and admiration for the hilarious singer on social media.
