How is Britney Spears connected to Netflix’s Tiger King?

How is Britney Spears connected to Netflix’s Tiger King?

The latest Netflix show that’s got viewers hooked is Tiger King – the stranger-than-fiction docu-series following the feud between Joe Exotic, a gay, country-singing, private zoo owner and his arch nemesis, Carole Baskin.

Without any spoilers, the show gets weirder and weirder with each passing episode – and since its release, it’s somehow managed to become weirder still – by introducing pop princess Britney Spears into the mix.

So what is Britney’s connection to this truly wild show?

What is the connection between Britney and Tiger King?  

Her iconic and legendary performance of I’m a Slave 4 U at the 2001 VMA’s – the one immortalised by her entrance holding a snake – has gone down in pop culture history, and there’s now a new layer added to its rich tapestry.

Doc Antle, another private zoo owner and friend of Joe Exotic’s in the docuseries, revealed that he was on stage with Britney during the performance.

Some of the animals used in the performance were his, and he was there to mind them.

Joe Exotic has made his first Instagram posts since the show debuted, promising that ‘the games will begin’ if his account reached two million followers.

These posts were made while he is currently serving a 22-year jail sentence for animal abuse and ‘murder-for-hire’ charges.

Tiger King is available to stream on Netflix.
