Britney Spears unfollowed by Christina Aguilera after body-shaming backlash
Britney Spears was recently called out for “body shaming” and referenced pop pal Christina Aguilera in her comment, which may have led the singing sensation to unfollow the Toxic singer.
Brit recently took to Instagram to share a picture of black text on a colourful pastel background.
The quote read: “I found there was only one way to look thin: hang out with fat people.”

The pop star then explained herself in the caption: “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,” with dancing emojis.
The caption continued on to question her followers as to “why she shouldn’t talk about it” and asked her fans if any of them thought Brit’s “confidence would have been a bit better” if only she could have decided “where she lived, what she ate, who she called on the phone, who she dated and who was on stage with her”.
Despite her reference to her conservatorship, which was terminated in November 2021, many of her 42million followers were left unimpressed with her comments.
However, one may have been more affected than most and it appears Britney’s comments could have driven Aguilera to unfollow her, despite backing her throughout her conservatorship battle.
Spears has previously publicly accused Christina of not supporting her throughout her struggle, which led Aguilera to speak out about the issue.
Back in January 2022, she told radio host Enrique Santos that “it was a subject she wanted to be careful of” as she “didn’t want to speak out of turn” because she had “so much respect and admiration for Britney”.
However, she made it clear that she “couldn’t be happier for her” as “every woman deserves to feel empowered” and should “own that for themselves”.
Their friendship may have been affected by Brit’s recent outburst as neither of them follow each other on Instagram.
Fans were not afraid to call Britney out and took to the comments to share their thoughts on her statement.
One fan told her that she “needed to delete the post” while another simply wrote: “Oh honey, delete this while you have time.”
A shocked follower couldn’t believe what the singer had written: “Oof. Love Brit, but this was in bad taste. Body shaming to make yourself feel better is not where it’s at”.
