Britney Spears has pointed out that she never "body-shamed" singer Christina Aguilera and her backup dancers in an Instagram post.
Spears made the clarification after she received backlash from fans, and Christina allegedly unfollowed her on social media when she made a comment about surrounding herself with "fat people" in reference to Christina's backup dancers.
"I would never intentionally body-shame anybody because I know what it feels like," said Britney.
The "Toxic" singer also said Christina is an inspiration.
"By no means did I even mention Christina, look at my post !!! I was inspired by her show, and she is a beautiful woman of power … Thank you @xtina for inspiring me!!! Britney added.
Britney's full post:
"By no means was I being critical of Christina’s beautiful body, it is what it is !!! I flew to see her show once and the main thing I noticed was the difference of our people on stage !!! By no means did I even mention Christina, look at my post !!! I was inspired by her show, and she is a beautiful woman of power … Thank you @xtina for inspiring me !!!
"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 … I would never intentionally body-shame anybody because I know what it feels like … I struggle with this because of how I feel about myself, not because I hate how anybody looks … I feel like my family knew I was insecure, and people were trying to purposefully feed into this insecurity by not letting me have a choice in the people who were on stage with me. I appreciate you all being understanding with me as I figure out this new life I’m living !!!"

Earlier, Britney made a controversial comment about Christina's dancers. She wrote: "I wish I could have chosen the nannies for my children … my dancers … I mean if I had Christina Aguilera’s dancers I would have looked extremely small ???… I mean why not talk about it ?? Don’t you think my confidence would have been a bit better if I could choose where I lived, ate, whom I called on the phone, dated and who was on stage with me !!! It’s hard sometimes now I see how much of my womanhood was stripped away at that time and every person sat back and didn’t say a thing !!! Anyways … I will be here talking bout things people NEVER talked about ??? !!!"
