Champagne. Confetti. Midnight kisses. Most people ring in the New Year with over-the-top celebrations. Some, however, can't help but take the partying just a little bit too far, like Britney Spears, who greeted 2016 this year with a nasty little bruise and an Instagram post about her clumsy run-in with a pole on New Years Eve.

"Good morning 2016!" she captioned the snap on Instagram, which revealed the studded leather jacket-wearing pop star showing off an impressive yet subtle purple bruise on her head. "Don't mind the little bruise on my forehead... Ran into a pole," the pop star elaborated, along with a monkey emoji, as one does.

Of course, there's still no word—and there probably wont be—on exactly how she ran into this mystery pole, or what she was doing in the midst of the mishap that distracted her so much as to smash her pretty head against it.

There are just so many unanswered questions: By running into a pole, did she mean she drove into a pole and got into a minor car accident? Or did she simply walk into one and smack her head against it? What sort of pole was it exactly? Did she spend NYE celebrating at a strip club? Does she have a stripper pole in her house? Is it the one she used during her Femme Fatale Tour? Is it the pole from the "Gimme More" video? What sort of stationary object will she run into next? When will Rihanna release ANTI?

Maybe we'll finally get some answers as 2016 unfolds.
