Madonna Compares Britney Spears' Conservatorship To 'Slavery' In Impassioned Post
The pop star spoke out on Instagram to demand that Spears’ father’s influence on her life and career be removed
In the days following Britney Spears’ bombshell, emotional conservatorship hearing, many celebrities have come out in support of the singer. The “Stronger” singer says her father, Jamie Spears, holds an undue amount of power over her, including her finances and ability to have a child.
Count Madonna among the Britney Spears supporters in her battle to free herself from conservatorship. The pop artist has spoken out on her Instagram Stories to end the hold Britney’s father has on her life and career.
As the tweet says, the queen has spoken.
Madonna, who collaborated with Spears for the banger “Me Against the Music,” is coming forward to support the embattled pop star as she struggles to free herself from the 13-year-long conservatorship.
The “Vogue” singer posted a photo of herself wearing a shirt with Britney’s name on it to her Instagram Stories, writing, “Give this woman her life back. Slavery was abolished so long ago!
“Death to the greedy patriarchy that has been doing this to women for centuries. This is a violation of human rights! Britney we coming to get you out of jail!”
“Give this woman her life back,” Madonna continued.
“Slavery was abolished so long ago! Death to the greedy patriarchy that has been doing this to women for centuries. This is a violation of human rights!
“Britney we coming to get you out of jail!” the message ends.
Since Britney’s hearing, there have been some major developments in her case. This week, she lost both Samuel Ingham, her court-appointed lawyer, and Larry Rudolph, her longtime manager. Lynne Spears, Britney’s mother, requested permission for her daughter to retain her own attorney on Thursday. It will be decided on July 14th whether to grant that request.
“I truly believe this conservatorship is abusive, and that we can sit here all day and say oh, conservatorships are here to help people,” Britney told the judge over the phone during her testimony. “But ma’am, there is a thousand conservatorships that are abusive as well.”
Amid increasing concern about Spears’ health, she shared an Instagram post in which she requested privacy.
“So being here in Maui is pretty crazy now … the paps know where I am and it’s really not fun !!!! It’s pretty hard going anywhere cause these silly faces keep popping up to take my picture 📸🙄 … but not only do they take my picture … they distort my body and mess with the image and it’s embarrassing 😬😳🙃 !!!!!”
Britney wasn’t having it.
“I know my body is not perfect but I definitely do NOT look like how they portray me. It’s rude and it’s mean so paps kindly FUCK YOU AND FUCK OFF 💋💋💋 !!!!”
You tell ‘em, Britney.
