WATCH Britney Spears may never perform again: Manager

Britney Spears may not have not have plans to revisit her Las Vegas residency any time soon, but she's still dancing.

The pop star, who canceled plans for her "Domination" show earlier this year after her father went through a health crisis, shared a video to Instagram Thursday in which she's getting down to Michael and Janet Jackson's song, "Scream."

After just a few hours, the video had garnered more than 2 million views.

Earlier this week, Spears' manager told TMZ that she wasn't thinking about performing right now.

"As the person who guides her career — based on the information I and all of the professionals who work with her are being told on a need-to-know basis — from what I have gathered, it's clear to me she should not be going back to do this Vegas residency, not in the near future and possibly never again," Larry Rudolph, Spears' manager for years, told TMZ.

We all need to take time for a little "me time." :)

Rudolph said that Spears was nearly done with rehearsals for "Domination" when the entire project was canceled "because her meds stopped working and she was distraught over her dad's illness."

Now it's up to Spears to decide whether she wants to perform, he said.

"Last summer, when she wanted to tour, she called me every day. She was excited. She hasn't called me in months," he said. "Crickets. She clearly doesn't want to perform now."

Rudolph said he only wants what's best for his client, insisting, "I don't want her to work again 'till she's ready — physically, mentally and passionately. If that time never comes again, it will never come again. I have no desire or ability to make her work again."

Last week, Spears and her parents appeared in court for a hearing in connection with her longtime conservatorship. The court ordered an expert evaluation of her current condition, and her next hearing was set for Sept. 18. She does not have to appear for that one.

Before this, Spears announced last month that she was taking some time to focus on herself and her family, while her father, Jamie, continues to battle health issues.
