Britney Spears still feels petty about longtime her archenemy Christina Aguilera. She wrote a scathing rant on Instagram that left fans of both singers fuming. The pop star got massive support from her own fanbase. Most of them were a big part of the #FreeBritney movement.
When Britney broke free from her decades-long conservatorship from her father Jamie Spears, fans praised her candid Instagram posts. However, she’s getting backlash as she continues to share her mind. What she said about Christina had the “Dirrty” singer hitting the unfollow button. Read on to learn more.
Why did Christina Aguilera hit unfollow?
Christina has been nothing but supportive of Britney Spears for the past few years. At first, it seemed like the two were on good terms. When the “Toxic” singer had full control of her social media accounts, she slammed Christina every second she got. On Monday, September 12, Britney took to Instagram to share a quote from comedian Rodney Dangerfield.
It reads: “I found there was only one way to look thin: hang out with fat people.”
It doesn’t stop there. Britney Spears accused Christina of hiring backup dancers to make herself appear thin. Fans weren’t happy when she fat-shamed the “Beautiful” singer. Britney had plenty to say about her archnemesis in her latest rant. She was feeling petty and had to get it out.
“I wish I could have chosen the nannies for my children … my dancers … I mean if I had Christina Aguilera’s dancers I would have looked extremely small 💃💃💃,” Britney Spears wrote. “I mean why not talk about it ?? Don’t you think my confidence would have been a bit better if I could choose where I lived, ate, whom I called on the phone, dated and who was on the stage with me !! [SIC]”
The pop star argued that her “womanhood was stripped away” from her around the same time. Britney is mad that no one else defended her. So, she wants to open up about the things that people have shied away from. She was alluding to the time when she headlined concerts she didn’t have control over.
Britney Spears angers celebrities & own fanbase
Britney Spears’ Instagram post left a bad taste in many of her fans’ mouths. Some of them advised her to take a break from social media and air out her grievances through therapy. Page Per Six, Christina, Selena Gomez, and Jennifer Lopez recently unfollowed her. This comes after Britney spoke out about her own struggles with body image.
She admitted that her father constantly told her that she was “fat” and had to “lose weight.” It’s obvious that it’s had a negative impact on Britney Spears. She feels that she should fight fire with fire since she’s been hurt by her family and industry.
However, critics argue that body-shaming isn’t the answer. It could lose Britney more support in the long run. Fans fear that she could get public backlash if this continues.
