Britney Spears recently addressed the backlash received after she “body-shamed” Christina Aguilera in an Instagram post. Earlier the “Toxic” singer took to her official Instagram handle and posted a note stating how one could look ‘thin’ by hanging out with ‘fat people.’
On Tuesday, the songwriter posted another note with a drawing of two female fairies seemingly holding hands. She also clarified that she was not being critical of Christina’s body, “By no means was I being critical of Christina’s beautiful body, it is what it is !!! I flew to see her show once and the main thing I noticed was the difference of our people on stage !!! By no means did I even mention Christina, look at my post !!! I was inspired by her show and she is a beautiful woman of power … Thank you @xtina for inspiring me !!! To be honest, I’m not trying to be critical of anybody. What I posted is a projection of the insecurities I deal with all the time as a result of how my parents and the media have treated me … I would never intentionally body shame anybody because I know what it feels like … I struggle with this because of how I feel about myself, not because I hate how anybody looks … I feel like my family knew I was insecure and people were trying to purposefully feed into this insecurity by not letting me have a choice in the people who were on stage with me. I appreciate you all being understanding with me as I figure out this new life I’m living !!!”
