On Friday, Spears posted a throwback photo of herself at the 2001 VMA’s alongside J-Lo, quoting the Marry Me star in the caption.
“As Jennifer Lopez once said,” she wrote, “‘You look right down that camera and tell every little girl in the world to get loud and never ever back down to giving light to injustice’!!! I’m here to share that freedom is a state of mind !!! GOD BLESS U ALL.”
Lopez commented with three heart emojis, then reposted the photo adding a sticker that reads “stay strong”.
The photo has since been deleted by Spears, but in the caption, she also reflected on “independence” and “equality”.
“In a world where you have the right to use your feet 🦶… heart ❤️ … mouth 👄 … eyes 👀 … and body… to express yourself however you may 😁 !!! Declaration of INDEPENDENCE … for equality and to be equal 🤝 !!! Not even touching, covering, and holding me against my will for 4 months !!!”
The caption seems to be in reference to Spears’ ex-husband, Kevin Federline, posting old videos of her earlier this week. In the clips, it appears that the ‘Toxic’ singer is arguing with and scolding her two sons, Sean and Jayden.
“I can not sit back and let my sons be accused in this way after what they’ve been through. As much as it hurts us, we decided as a family to post these videos,” Federline wrote alongside the clips, saying their sons were 11 and 12 at the time the videos were taken.
His decision to share the videos online garnered a ton of backlash. A source for Spears told Page Six, “This is terrible, Kevin is disgusting. He is weaponising the kids by releasing the videos.
“But in these clips, Britney is just being a mom.”
