The 39-year-old pop star, who is known for sharing lighthearted dancing videos and silly messages, took to Instagram on Tuesday, Feb. 16 to post a photo of a Scrabble board that contained both real and made-up words.
In her caption, the “Stronger” performer encouraged fans to find the fake words but did not specify whether she was actually playing a game with anyone else. As board game fans know, making up your own words is typically a Scrabble no-no.
“Can you find a word that isn’t actually a word ????” Britney wrote. “Sometimes it’s fun to make ones up [winking-face-with-tongue and shrugging emojis] !!!!”
Naturally, this immediately led countless fans to suggest in the comments that the game board’s words were intended to form a hidden meaning or offer clues about her well-being. Many of the fan comments appear to be light-hearted, although others expressed true concern for the “Circus” singer.
