Britney Spears has plenty of fans and when the singer celebrated her 36th birthday on Dec. 2, 2017, the Internet went wild. Fans and celebrities alike took to social media to send the “Princess of Pop” birthday greetings, including Chris Crocker from “Leave Britney Alone” fame.
Spears also shared some personal photos and video clips from her special day. The mother of two celebrated with her boyfriend Sam Asghari and Spears shared pictures from the beginning of her romantic celebration as she was surrounded by roses, candles, and cupcakes.
Britney looked the picture of health and happiness and she even shared a 360 video where she sang the song a cappella “I Can’t Help Falling In Love With You.”
In one video Sam could be heard saying, “Happy birthday, Baby,” while Britney blew out the candles on her cupcakes, did a little happy dance, turned to the camera and sweetly said, “Thank you.”
You can see the video she shared on Instagram below.
I was really inspired yesterday by @madonna’s post. She’s right… silence = death! These words really stuck with me, because they are so true. I’ve always wanted to do a performance like this… singing in a pretty little black dress, with a simple 360, one take shot! I figured since it was my birthday, why not go for it?! So boom ? When the clock struck 12:00, I did it!!! Thank you all for the beautiful birthday wishes, and for letting me do what I love. I appreciate you more than you will ever know!!!!
It wasn’t just Britney sharing photos and pictures on her birthday. Many of Britney’s celebrity friends wished her a happy birthday.

Last but not least, no birthday celebration for Britney Spears would be complete without a shout out from Chris Crocker to the woman he’s admired for years. Chris Crocker was Britney’s most concerned fans when she went through emotional issues in the public light.
Crocker made a YouTube video where he begged the public to think of her as a human and not just a celluloid figure without human emotions and feelings.
He shared a video and begged the public and media to just “leave Britney alone.”
Who knows, maybe Chris Crocker’s overwhelming love, care, and concern for Britney helped her through some difficult times.
Chris Crocker still has Britney’s back, and though it’s been a while since he made the above video, he had a special birthday message for Queen B.
“Happy Birthday to the woman who has inspired me since I was in the 4th grade @britneyspears From your contributions to music- to being the epitome of a strength! Hope this day & the next year is as amazing as you are!”
