Britney Spears is facing backlash over her latest Instagram post. The singer appeared to body shame Christina Aguilera’s backup dancers in her recent post. Spears shared in her post that she wished she was able to have chosen her dancers, after previously complaining that her team would hire ‘tiny’ performers that would make her look bigger onstage.
In the latest rant at her former rival Aguilera, she said, “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.” The matter gone worse as she also posted a quote that reads, “I found there was only one way to look thin: hang out with fat people.”
It sparked some backlash from fans on Instagram who were shocked at the unfavourable comparison that Spears was making. “Britney… body shaming is out,’ one fan wrote, while another said: ‘Oh honey, delete this while you have time.” However, last year in November, Spears slammed Aguilera for refusing to answer a question about the Free Britney movement during a red carpet appearance.
Meanwhile, the post comes after Spears said that she will never perform live again and claimed she is ‘traumatized for life’ after being humiliated into working with the ‘tiniest’ backup dancers while on tour. In a lengthy post that has since been deleted, Spears grieved her previous experiences as a touring artist, as well as the preparation required for each show.
She wrote, “The most offensive SO CALLED professional pictures on every tour. I mean they could have at least cheated and retouched them for me… just saying… two-day shoots for a new show in Vegas are literally the worst ever and me excited for the pictures for five months on tour… they never showed me any.’
The Toxic hitmaker added, “I’m an extremely short dude but of course, my team always hired the tiniest girls to be on stage with me… as 8 girls talk about humiliation good god… and tours WITHOUT conservatorship I only had 4 girls or 2 on stage with me!! JUST SAYING… you think I’m being silly you try being up there and feeling like that.”
