Britney Spears arrives at the Sony Pictures' "Once Upon A Time...In Hollywood" Los Angeles Premiere on July 22, 2019 in Hollywood, Calif. 

Britney Spears is taking some well-deserved time off to explore her future.     

The 37-year-old pop star took to Instagram Friday (Sept. 27) to inform fans that she's currently in a transitional period of her life and joked that she hopes fans haven't "forgotten about me!!!"   

"I’m taking this transition in my life to focus on what I really want," Spears wrote alongside photos of herself performing on stage. "I’ve been working nonstop, well, since I was 8 years old in the business. Sometimes it’s good to stop and reflect !!!! Miss you all ... I really do have the best fans in the world !!!"  

The singer's Instagram post arrives about six months after Spears announced she would be taking an indefinite hiatus to support her father, Jamie, as he recovered from a life-threatening colon rupture.

"It’s important to always put your family first… and that’s the decision I had to make," she wrote in January.

Spears was recently spotted flaunting her new dark hair at the 2019 Daytime Beauty Awards in Los Angeles with boyfriend Sam Asghari, who was honored for outstanding achievement in fitness.

Prior to that, she and Asghari appeared at the July premiere of Once Upon a Time...in Hollywood in L.A.
