Singer Christina Aguilera respaldó a Britney Spears After the statements that the pop star made on June 23 when she appealed against the legal guardianship that her father, Jamie Spears, has over her for 13 years. “It is unacceptable that any woman or human being who wants to be in control of her own destiny cannot live her life as she wishes,” Aguilera said on social media.
Despite the fact that the music industry always presented them as enemies, Aguilera sympathized with Britney Spears through a long Twitter thread that she accompanied with a photograph of both taken about 25 years ago. “These last few days I’ve been thinking about Britney and everything she’s going through. It is unacceptable that any woman or human being who wishes to be in control of her own destiny cannot live her life as she wishes.“, wrote.
“Being silenced, ignored, harassed or denied support by those closest to you is the most exhausting, devastating and humiliating thing imaginable.. The mental and emotional damage it can cause to a human being should not be taken lightly, ”the artist continued. And he added: “Every woman should have the right to her own body, her reproductive system, her privacy, her space, her healing and her happiness.”
Although “I do not know what happens behind closed doors in this conversation, very personal but very public,” he admitted, “all I can do is share from the bottom of my heart what I have heard, read and seen in the media.” “The condemnation and despair of this plea for freedom makes me believe that the person I once knew lived without compassion or decency on the part of those who control her.“, lament.
“A woman who worked under the most unimaginable conditions and pressures deserves all the freedom possible to live the happiest life. My heart goes out to Britney. He deserves all the true love and all the support in the world”, Concluded Aguilera, who on previous occasions had already deployed strong criticism against the music industry for being a” business with masculine rules “, where he had to see his” mother many times in positions of weakness and very dominated “.
In the past week, several famous figures have publicly expressed their support for Britney Spears, including Mariah Carey, Miley Cyrus, Brandy, Sarah Jessica Parker, Rose McGowan, Rosie O’Donnell, Vera Wang, and the Kardashian sisters.
He was also supported by his partner between 1999 and 2002, Justin Timberlake. “After what we have seen today (from the singer’s statements in court), we should all support Britney at this time. Beyond our past, good or bad, and it does not matter how long it has been, what is happening to him is not fair. No woman should be restricted from making decisions about her own body. No one should ever be held against their will, or have to ask permission to access what they have worked so hard for“Wrote the musician, who in February had already made a public apology for his past mistakes, after the premiere of the documentary Framing Britney Spears.
Jamie Spears has been in charge of Britney’s conservatorship for 13 years.: a figure that in the United States applies to very old adults or people suffering from disabling mental disorders. For the first time in all this time, on June 23, Britney Spears declared in favor of herself to request that her situation be reviewed and her father’s exercise of guardianship be suspended, who took charge of her after the resounding episodes of 2007, when the artist’s mental health was compromised and, after being hospitalized, she was declared incompetent to manage her own life.
“I want to be able to get married and have a baby. They told me I couldn’t. I have an IUD, but they won’t let me go to the doctor to remove it because they don’t want me to have any more children. This guardianship is doing me much more harm than good”, Declared the artist a week ago before Judge Brenda Penny. “I feel intimidated, excluded and alone. I’m tired of feeling lonely I deserve to have the same rights ”, he claimed then.
