Madonna Says Britney’s Situation Is Slavery | Blue Mountain Gazette
Madonna shared her support for Britney Spears and likened her tutelage to slavery.
The Queen of Pop, 62, described the complex legal arrangement that has overseen Spears’ life and career since 2008 as a “violation of human rights.”
Spears, 39, asked for an end to guardianship last month and said she was forced to work, likening the situation to sex trafficking.
Madonna wrote on Instagram: “Bring this woman back to life. Slavery was abolished so long ago! Death to the greedy patriarchy that has been doing this to women for centuries.
“It’s a human rights violation! Britney we’re coming to get you out of jail!”
The post, shared with Madonna’s 16.2 million Instagram followers, was written in a photo of her wearing a t-shirt with Spears’ name on it.
The two American pop superstars have worked together before.
They collaborated on the 2003 song Me Against The Music and shared a kiss during a performance with Christina Aguilera at that year’s MTV Video Music Awards.
The #FreeBritney movement – a fan group calling for an end to trusteeship – has a long list of famous supporters.
This week, socialite Paris Hilton renewed her support for Spears by writing on Instagram: “She is incredibly courageous and an inspiration to speak her truth.”
Cher, Miley Cyrus and Mariah Carey have all expressed their support for Spears.
