Christina Aguilera Voices Support for Britney Spears in Open Letter

    Christina Aguilera has shared an open letter on social media voicing her support for Britney Spears following her testimony against her conservatorship last week. In a lengthy Twitter thread, Aguilera addressed her former Mickey Mouse Club co-star’s current situation, sharing her thoughts alongside a picture of them as children.

    “These past few days I’ve been thinking about Britney and everything she is going through,” Aguilera wrote. “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.” She continued:

    To be silenced, ignored, bullied or denied support by those “close” to you is the most depleting, devastating and demeaning thing imaginable. The harmful mental and emotional damage this can take on a human spirit is nothing to be taken lightly. 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.

    While I am not behind the closed doors of this very layered & personal yet public conversation – all I can do is share from my heart on what I’ve heard, read and seen in the media. 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.

    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. My heart goes out to Britney. She deserves all the TRUE love and support in the world.

    Many in the entertainment industry have spoken out in support of Spears about her remarks at the recent hearing, including Justin Timberlake, Brandy, Mariah Carey, Halsey, Cher, and more.
