Britney Spears directly gave an explanation as people are saying that she might have slammed Selena Gomez when expressing her belief about women’s body exposure.
On October 26th (local time), Britney Spears made a post on her personal SNS account, saying “What I said had nothing to do with anyone specific at all. It was clearly a subject in hand all women have had to deal with. I was honestly referencing my days when I was younger when I got discriminated against harshly. I’m sure Selena has gone through something pretty similar”.
She continued, “I empower women to express their bodies however they choose”, adding “Tons of other stars who had million-dollar budget videos who were known talked shit about her when she was a new artist trying to make it. I apologize for my ignorance, but I didn’t even see the video for ‘Ice Cream’ that Selena Gomez, who I genuinely look up to and have so much respect for, had made”.
Earlier on October 25th, Britney Spears posted on her SNS account, “Don’t you just love the nerve of women who stand firmly getting awards and speak on their beliefs about not showing their bodies on Instagram? They say, ‘This is not something I would do’ yet those women are the very ones who get 4 million dollar budget videos made about sucking and licking on homemade ice cream.”
She went on, “These other girls have nothing but beautiful bodies. Who cares if they flaunt it? So the next time I see someone ashamed of exposing themselves, I would like to tell those people don’t be a hypocrite as you suck on your lollipop having huge budget dreams”.
Recently, Britney Spears has continued her unusual move by posting nude photos of herself on Instagram. Above all, she attracts attention by targeting some female artists, calling them hypocrites, as well as their beliefs in exposing their bodies.
However, netizens recalled Selena Gomez’s “Ice Cream” music video over the “video of sucking ice cream” she mentioned. This music video, which Selena Gomez collaborated with BLACKPINK 2 years ago, features a lot of scenes in which Selena Gomez sucked ice cream.
That’s why netizens responded that Britney Spears offended Selena Gomez. However, Britney Spears is actively explaining the situation by directly mentioning Selena Gomez.
