Despite the fact that Britney Spears has visited Las Vegas more times than she can remember, including for a Vegas residency, something was noticeably different about the star’s most recent visit.
The 40-year-old pop star opened up about a recent trip to Vegas in a new (and a since-deleted) Instagram post, saying she absolutely loved the huge difference in visiting Sin City now that she’s free from her 13-year conservatorship and without her controlling parents. “I don’t have to entertain my family and be their puppet anymore,” she says.
In the post, which Britney shared and then quickly deleted from her Instagram on March 6, she said it as if it’s about a recent trip where she said she felt she was “treated like an equal for the first time in Las Vegas in 13 years.”
Mentioning the ‘spas,’ ‘alcohol,’ and just genuine human kindness she experienced while visiting the city where she once held an in-demand residency, Britney was certain she’d finally received the “star treatment” she deserve.

Britney Spears made it very clear in the post that her family prevented her from receiving real star treatment during her previous trip to Las Vegas.
But having gotten out of the hook, with a new lease on life, from dancing her heart out on Instagram to publicly gushing over her fiancé Sam Asghari on his birthday, Britney isn’t letting anyone stop her anymore, especially her estranged family.
“Wow !!!! Being a guest in Las Vegas is way better than being me … or wait … is it because my family got to be the stars when I worked in Vegas?” Britney also said in the post.
Britney has been soaking up the limelight in any way she can lately, especially as she continues to swoon over Sam.
The couple has been on a romantic tropical getaway to celebrate Sam’s 28th birthday, and the footage has been enough to make anyone with cabin fever jealous, from dressed-up date nights to poolside PDA.
After Sam referred to Britney as his “wife” and Britney referred to Sam as her “husband” in separate Instagram posts, the couple sparked rumors of a possible secret wedding.
