The Britney Spears Rips Christina Aguilera publication by Silence on Conservatorship appeared first in Consequence.
For the first time in 13 years, Britney Spears can speak her mind without reservation. On Friday night, he called his pop music partner Christina Aguilera for keeping quiet about his guardianship.
The history of Spears and Aguilera dates back almost 30 years, when the two met as members of the Mickie Mouse Club in 1992. A few years later, the two faced their rivals during the height of the pop music explosion of the late 1990s.
Before last week’s court ruling that ended Spears’ 13-year tutelage, Aguilera voiced her support for the #FreeBritney movement. In a statement issued in June, Aguilera wrote: “These last few days I have been thinking about Britney and everything that is happening. It is unacceptable that any woman, or human being, who wishes to be in control of her own destiny is not allowed to live life as she wishes. “
But in Spears’s mind, Aguilera’s words came too little too late. In an Instagram story, Spears posted a clip in which Aguilera was asked about Spears’ plight during a red carpet interview at the Latin Grammy Awards earlier this week. In the clip, Aguilera appears visibly uncomfortable and her publicist finally steps in to end the interview.
“I love and adore everyone who supported me … but refusing to speak when you know the truth is tantamount to a lie !!!” Spears wrote about the clip. “13 years of being in a corrupt and abusive system, but why is it such a difficult topic for people to talk about ??? I’m the one who went through it! All the fans who spoke and supported me thank you… Yes, I do matter! “
In a later IG story, Spears praised Lady Gaga for her support. “Thank you @LadyGaga for taking the time to say something so nice, it made me cry! I love you !!! “Spears wrote.
