In the same post, the Baby One More Time singer mentioned her intention behind making the post about Christina Aguilera. Spears wrote,

“To be honest, I’m not trying to be critical of anybody. What I posted is a projection of the insecurities I deal with all the time as a result of how my parents and the media have treated me…”

She later elaborated on how she would never body shame, anyone, intentionally because she knows what it is like to be the one at the receiving end. Spears, 40, who has been recently vocal about the things she went through in the past also mentioned that she didn’t have the liberty to choose who she shares the stage with. That led to her insecurities getting worse, hence she projected it through the post made for Aguilera’s dancers. Fans showered Spears with support and the confusion wrapped around her post was thereupon cleared.
