Celebrities such as Justin Timberlake, Mariah Carey, Halsey and Tinashe recently came forward to speak in support of Britney Spears after she appeared in court regarding her controversial conservatorship for the very first time on June 23. Christina Aguilera was the latest celebrity to extend her support to Spears with an emotional Twitter thread.

Sharing a lengthy post with her close to 17M followers on Twitter, Aguilera slammed the unacceptable treatment Spears was facing. The 40-year-old songstress also added that her heart goes out to Spears and that she deserves all the true love and support in the world. Spears had testified in the court that she wanted to “END” her controversial conservatorship and requested that her father be removed as her conservator as he has been controlling her life and her assets since 2016.

‘My heart goes out to Britney’, says Christina Aguilera

While addressing Britney’s recent hearing, Aguilera penned a discursive thread on the micro-blogging site. She first tweeted, ““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.” She continued, “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.”

Getting emotional, she further wrote, “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”, and added, “While I am not behind the closed doors of this very layered & personal yet public conversation – all I can do is share from my heart on what I’ve heard, read and seen in the media.” The ‘Hurt’ hitmaker then posted, “The conviction and desperation of this plea for freedom leads me to believe that this person I once knew has been living without compassion or decency from those in control,” concluding, “To a woman who has worked under conditions and pressure unimaginable to most, I promise you she deserves all of the freedom possible to live her happiest life. My heart goes out to Britney. She deserves all the TRUE love and support in the world.”

Though the two singers never collaborated on a song, they did perform together alongside Madonna at the 2000 MTV VMAs. The two also had quite a gala time when they appeared on Jimmy Kimmel LIVE! in 2018 on the fun segment called ‘CARPOOL KARAOKE'. They both also starred in the 1990s Mickey Mouse Club reboot ‘MMC’ alongside Justin Timberlake, JC Chasez, Keri Russell and Ryan Gosling.









‘Britney vs Christina rivalry was just a patriarchal ploy’

As soon as Aguilera poured her heart out on Twitter, many social media users too got emotional and also slammed media for creating a rift between Aguilera and Spears in the '90s when in reality nothing such existed. One user posted, “Christina Aguilera is currently being more of a sister to Britney Spears than Britney’s biological “sister” Jamie Lynn. That Spears family aint shit.” Whereas, another said, “Christina stepped UP! I’m a full time Xtina stan now, Xtina slander will not be tolerated, I will drag anyone that comes for her, I’ll even defend Lotus.”
The next one posted, “Britney and Christina the original pop girls the media tried to divide and pit against each other and there was moments it worked but glad that’s over with. love that christina is standing up for Britney.” One user shared, “I felt this with every inch of my soul. So heartfelt and you can tell it comes from a genuine, loving place. Christina and Britney forever!” Meanwhile, one noted, “A reminder that the Britney vs Christina rivalry was just a patriarchal ploy to pit talented women against each other.” One fan concluded, “Christina’s message/ thoughts for Britney was the best one yet. That was so well written and thought.”
