Britney Spears Makes Her (Adorable) Arrival in Bangkok: Watch
The Legendary Miss Britney Spears is officially ready to get to work (bitch) in Bangkok.
After sneaking away to the Philippines for the first time (finally!) and rocking the spots all over Asia in the past month on her summer tour — including shows in Japan, South Korea and Taiwan — the "What U See (Is What U Get)" pop icon just touched down in Thailand ahead of her upcoming concerts on Friday (June 23) and Saturday (June 24) night.
Upon her arrival this afternoon (June 21) at Don Mueang Airport, she was met with an adorable surprise: two Thai children in traditional garb, bearing flower garland gifts for the Blackout beauty.
Not only did the Undisputed Princess of Pop™ immediately perk up upon seeing the two cute kids (B always loves the baybehs), but she even did a wai as Coconuts Bangkok points out, which is "a slight bow, with the palms pressed together in a prayer-like fashion" — a traditional Thai greeting and expression of gratitude and respect.
It might seem like a small gesture, but Britney's respect for other cultures around the world has not gone unnoticed: when she returned to Seoul after over a decade earlier this month, Park Sul-nyeo, renowned designer of the Korean hanbok dress, fondly recalled in an Instagram post how “humble and respectful of the culture” Britney was upon meeting 14 years ago.
Watch Britney get a warm Thai welcome below.
