Britney Spears is getting steamy on social media.

Amid the pop icon's conservatorship battle, Spears, 39, took to Instagram on Saturday to post a set of revealing topless photos.

With her head thrown back and her long, blond hair cascading down, Spears appeared topless with her hands clutching her chest, which was covered by two strategically placed stars. On the bottom, Spears wore a pair of denim cutoff shorts rolled down, revealing her taut tummy. The post had no words in the caption, instead featuring a flurry of star emojis as Spears soaked up the weekend sunshine in her yard.

In addition to garnering over 2 million likes, Spears received an outpouring of support from famous friends for the revealing pics. Paris Hilton commented "Sliving Sis!" along with a series of emojis, while Snooki called out one of the singer's famous songs, writing "Gimme gimme moreee." Best Coast vocalist Bethany Cosentino commented with "Yes Queen," and comedian Whitney Cummings wrote "Yesssssss" with a series of hand emojis.

The post was a follow-up to an earlier topless photo from Saturday. In that photo, Spears stood by a tree in a sunny backyard as she stared longingly at the camera with her hands over her chest. 

In between the topless photos, Spears posted a photograph from a book that included a passage about kindness. "Do you know what really turns me on? What I find incredibly sexy? Kindness," the photograph read. The passage appears to be from the 2016 Michael Faudet book Dirty Pretty Things.

Spears appears to be taking control of her image as she battles for autonomy against her conservatorship. In testimony on June 23, Spears spoke about the ways it has impacted her life, and alleged "conservatorship abuse" against her father, Jamie Spears. The singer also revealed she was put on the psychiatric medication Lithium against her will and that she was forced to keep an IUD despite her wishes to “have a baby,” Yahoo Life previously reported.

Since then, Spears has used social media as a means of expressing her frustrations, stating that she won't stop until she's given control over her life.

"So I said 'life goes on' in one of my recent posts but it’s always easier said than done," she wrote last week. "In that moment that’s what felt was the easiest to say but I think we all know that I will never be able to let go and fully move on until I’ve said all I needed to say... and I’m not even close!!!! I was told to stay quiet about things for so long and I finally feel like I’m just getting here."
