Britney Spears’ art sells for charity

November 8, 2017 - 6:45am

Britney Spears has revealed a talent in the world of visual arts, taking up painting while living in Las Vegas for her residency at Planet Hollywood. Spears shared her penchant for paint on Instagram last month, sharing a video revealing Spears adorning a canvas to the strains of Mozart. The artist donated the piece to a charity auction held Monday at Las Vegas' Venetian Hotel raising money for VegasCares, an organization supporting victims of the Route 91 festival shooting.

"I'm so proud to call Vegas my second home and I'm pleased to participate in this Vegas Cares show," she told bidders via video message. "The flowers in my painting represent a new beginning, and it's in that spirit that we move forward. All the proceeds from the winning bid go to Vegas Cares Memorial Fund. I appreciate your kindness and your generosity - I love you Vegas."

When Spears' piece hit the auction block, Vegas legend Robin Leach of Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous fame, ponied up $10,000 to take it home.

Leach was serving as the auctioneer for the item and clearly didn't want the Spears original to get away.
