Britney Spears has been on the news constantly for the past few weeks. The recent being her body-shaming of the dancers that complimented Christina Aguilera on the stage. This time the “Toxic” singer clarifies her comments and defends herself from the backlash.
Britney took to Instagram on Tuesday to put out a word of clarity about the situation. The superstar asserted that she would never intentionally body shame anybody because she “[knows] what it feels like” to be judged for her physical appearance.” She went on to clarify that she didn’t mean to “be critical of anybody.
Spears saw her original post as “a projection of the insecurities I deal with all the time as a result of how my parents and the media have treated me.” She took the blame all on herself by addressing her deep psychological issues that originate due to trauma. The artist apologized and asked for her to be accepted in these tough times.
During her nearly 14-year conservatorship, Spears claimed she thought her estranged family “purposefully” fueled her fears. It started by denying her “a choice in the people that were on stage with me.” In November 2021, the contentious legal agreement finally ended.
It all started when Spears captioned a lengthy photo she shared on Monday afternoon saying “If I had Christina Aguilera’s dancers, I would have looked really little.” The post, which was still on her page as of Tuesday afternoon, was received with a ton of backlash. It included a Rodney Dangerfield quote that read, “I learned there was only one way to look thin: hang out with fat people.”
The internet is all riled up on the comments that Britney put out on the internet. However, her conveying of the matter while clarifying her intentions made the whole situation a bit better. We hope that she has learned her lesson.
