'Body shaming is out': Britney Spears slammed for saying 'fat' dancers made Christina Aguilera look thin
LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA: Britney Spears is quite well known for making bold statements through her posts.The 'Baby One More Time' singer has often got backlash due to her statements, but that has not stopped her from creating new controversies. Recently Britney was slammed for ‘body-shaming’ Christina Aguilera's backup dancers with an ‘offensive’ message on her Instagram post.
Britney shared in her long Instagram post that she wished she could have chosen her dancers, complaining that her team would hire ‘tiny’ performers to make her look bigger onstage.
"I wish I could have chosen the nannies for my children...my dancers.. I mean if I had Christina Aguilers's dancers I would have looked extremely small...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 stage with me!!! It's hard sometimes now I see how much of my womanhood was stripped away at that time and every person sat back and didn't say a thing!!! Anyways... I will be here talking about things people NEVER talked about!!!" Britney wrote in her Instagram post on Monday with a picture of a quote by Rodney Dangerfield, "I found there was only one way to look thin: hang out with fat people". Britney deleted the post due to the commotion.
The singer was opening up about her feelings of not having freedom due to her conservatorship under her father; she wished she had a choice in life and how no one spoke up for her. Spears went on to say that her confidence could have benefited if she was free.
After she body shamed Christina's dancers by calling them 'fat', her fans were disappointed in her for comparing her dancers’ physiques to those of Aguilera’s.
“Oh honey, delete this while you have time,” a follower urged. "Britney… body shaming is out,” one person wrote.
“There is so much more to life than looking thin,” another person added. “This is so f*cking offensive Britney,” told another fan.
However, Britney was least bothered about the issue, and said in a now-deleted voice memo that she didn't mind offending others as she has felt offended her whole life.
This is not the first time Britney has dragged Christina on her social media. In November 2021, she mentioned Christina for staying silent on her conservationship struggles.
