Britney Spears has popped off on none other than Christina Aguilera over the remarks made – or not made – about her conservatorship.
Full story below…
As reported, Xtina was quizzed on Spears’ emancipation from the legal mandate that has governed her personal and professional life while arriving at the Latin GRAMMY Awards this week.
Clearly attempting to keep the line of questioning on her own activity (which included performing at the show) and arguably cognizant of the career-long comparisons to Spears, Aguilera still said “I’m Happy For Her.”
Before that, though, she said “I can’t speak on that.”
It would appear this did not sit well with Spears, who took to her Instagram Stories moments ago with a clip of the moment and the following caption:
“I love and adore everyone who supported me…but refusing to speak when you know the truth is equivalent to a lie!!! 13 years being in a corrupt abusive system yet why is it such a hard topic for people to talk about?? I’m the one who went through it!!!! All the supporters who spoke up and supported me. .Thank you…Yes, I do matter!!!”
Spears then immediately followed with praise for Lady Gaga, posting a clip of her recent words about the conservatorship termination. She wrote:
“Thank you Lady Gaga for genuinely taking your time to say something so kind. You made my cry!!! Love you!!!”
The social media jab comes after Aguilera publicly voiced support for her fellow ‘Mickey Mouse Club’ star after the court hearing in which Spears spoke up and out about her predicament. At the time, Xtina said:
“These past few days I’ve been thinking about Britney and everything she is going through”
It is unacceptable that any woman, or human, wanting to be in control of their own destiny might not be allowed to live life as they wish. To be silenced, ignored, bullied or denied support by those “close” to you is the most depleting, devastating and demeaning thing imaginable. The harmful mental and emotional damage this can take on a human spirit is nothing to be taken lightly. Every woman must have the right to her own body, her own reproductive system, her own privacy, her own space, her own healing and her own happiness…
My heart goes out to Britney. She deserves all the TRUE love and support in the world. 🤍”
Much has been said about Xtina over the years, but there are a few crucial points to note.
In almost all instances where artists have discussed Spears’ predicament, they were asked the question (rather than voluntarily “speaking up”). And given the sensitivity of the matter at hand (especially when it comes to the intertwined nature of Britney and Christina’s narrative), it’s not far-fetched to see why one would have wanted to avoid the topic because of how words and intentions can be misconstrued – as yours truly feels has been the case here.
Above all, Aguilera – as highlighted – has voiced support for Spears. And in considerable detail too.
So, folks, we’re not sure this is any kind of fair.
But that’s our two cents. As ever, let us know what you think.
