Christina Aguilera Spoke Out In Passionate Support Of Britney On Twitter
'90s kids are living for this moment.
Christina Aguilera has joined the long list of celebrities who are voicing their support for Britney Spears. The pop star took to Twitter on June 28 with a slew of tweets addressing Spears’ June 23 court testimony about her conservatorship. While the two singers were often pitted against each other early in their careers, Christina Aguilera's tweets about Britney Spears' conservatorship were nothing but love.
A number of the biggest stars in Hollywood have already spoken out in solidarity with Spears. Dua Lipa, Cher, Miley Cyrus, Charlie Puth, Halsey, Justin Timberlake, and many more all posted messages of support on social media. Now, Aguilera, who starred with Spears on The Micky Mouse Club beginning in 1993 and was a frequent collaborator with Spears in the early 2000s during both their peaks, is speaking out.
"These past few days I’ve been thinking about Britney and everything she is going through,” she tweeted. “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."
Aguilera went on to address Spears’ claims that she is being forced to stay on birth control despite wanting more children (Elite Daily previously reached out to Spears’ team for further comment on the claims made in her testimony, but did not hear back). "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,” she wrote.
Aguilera’s post included a sweet throwback photo from their adolescent days on Disney’s Mickey Mouse Club. "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,” Aguilera wrote.
The pop star also pointed out she knows the pressure of fame all too well, and hopes Spears can find the freedom she deserves soon. “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,” Aguilera wrote. “My heart goes out to Britney. She deserves all the TRUE love and support in the world.”
For pop music fans who grew up on Brit and Xtina’s music, this was the #FreeBritney message they’ve been waiting for.
