In a Twitter thread, Aguilera became the latest person to publicly declare her support for fellow pop icon Britney Spears as Spears fights to leave her legally binding conservatorship.
The singer posted a series of tweets Monday evening (Jun. 28, 2021) expressing her thoughts on Spears’ conservatorship.
“These past few days I’ve been thinking about Britney and everything she is going through,” her Twitter thread began.
“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, 40, 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.”
Aguilera finished her message, “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.”
Aguilera famously appeared opposite Spears in The Mickey Mouse Club, between 1993 and 1994. Her statement of support follows others from Justin Timberlake, Rose McGowan, Amber Tamblyn and Spears’ younger sister, Jamie Lynn.
