In this spring of 2022, the trend for “older marriage, happy marriage”. To that, as unexpected as it is sober, of Julie Gayet and François Hollande, in Corrèze, succeeded its exact opposite in Los Angeles, on June 9. When Britney Spears, 40, marries her sports coach, Sam Asghari, 28, she puts the package, visually and emotionally. We have rarely seen so much kitsch, so many bizarre moments… and so much desire to go there with our little tears, us too. Decryption of a wedding under the slogan “fairytales are real” (fairy tales exist in real life).

Britney Spears comes out of several months of emotional elevator: in November 2021, the guardianship that her father had exercised for thirteen years over her property and her private life was lifted, which authorized her to concretize her engagement with the Iranian Sam Asghari, met on the set of a music video in 2016. After apologizing to her fans at the end of the year by declaring that she was giving up music to focus on her intimate reconstruction, the singer announced on Instagram, in April, her joy at expecting a third child. Alas, her pregnancy didn’t live up to its promise, and the Team Britney faithful feared she was too fragile to keep her wedding date. Nay. Spears went there, and not just a little!

The wedding dress
The great thing about Britney is her heavy use of Instagram, where nearly 42 million followers follow her. The video she posted the day after her wedding gives us the impression of having been part of the procession and almost held the train, which is four meters long. Interesting detail: designed by her friend Donatella Versace, her dress is by far the most sober element of the whole ceremony, if we except the skirt split up to the groin, which we see quite rarely in weddings Catholics, in the Puy-de-Dôme, let’s say. The jewels, too, surprise with their monastic side: simple lines of brilliants, like lines of purity. It was not until the after-party that Ms. Asghari went back to Britney mode: under the black jacket she wore to pole-dancing against her husband, the singer indicated that she only wore a thong… in real diamonds (the first of her life, she says, but she says nothing about the level of comfort of this accessory).

A feast for the eye at all levels: the villa in Thousand Oaks has been completely redesigned in marshmallow pink, and California seems to have been emptied of its flowers for the next six months. The kiss of the newlyweds, touching, took place on a balcony with columns like “lovers of Verona”. But the pompom remains the team led by a feathered white horse with golden hooves. In this carriage, which would pass that of the Queen of England for a cart, Britney and her left thigh pose, radiant.
The Maidens of Honor
As it should be, they danced in circles around the bride, in long dresses and to the tune of “Like a Virgin”. But we will notice a notable difference with the witnesses of my marriage or yours, at the town hall of Pézenas or Sucy-en-Brie: their name. Selena Gomez, Paris Hilton, Donatella Versace, Drew Barrymore, and even Madonna, handy if you’re in doubt about the lyrics to the last verse.

The marriage contract
Britney may be bipolar, but not crazy: the contract she made Sam sign stipulates that he will not be entitled to a penny of her fortune, estimated at around 60 million dollars. As for the couple’s new home, acquired three days after the wedding for almost 12 million dollars, we only know that it is located in Calabasas, California. Was it purchased in the name of Mr. and Mrs. Asghari? Mystery.
There is perhaps more interesting than the sixty guests: those who were not. The irruption, camera in hand, just before the wedding, of Jason Alexander, with whom Britney was married… 55 hours, in 2004, ended in an indictment for harassment, invasion of residence and vandalism of the former best friend of the singer. What spoil his big day, especially since the star could not count on the support of his close family. We obviously didn’t expect the presence of her father, the toxic James Spears, but neither her mother nor her brother (who, after pretending to be invited, took a scud from the bride on Instagram ), neither her sister nor her own children, 16-year-old Sean Preston and 15-year-old Jayden James, whom she had with Kevin Federline, were there to watch her beaming down the aisle. to the sound of “Can’t Help Falling in Love” by Elvis. And the few affectionate messages that his loved ones have posted on the networks will never replace the arm of a relative passed under yours. She may be there, the reason for our hearts sinking when we see Britney Spears’ wedding video: a phoenix in full light, yes, but so alone. Is it to protect herself that the pop star completely deleted her Instagram account a few days after the party? Fairy tales may exist, but princesses are not always at the wedding.
