In a long Instagram post, Briteny shared that she wished to have chosen her dancers, complaining that her team would hire ‘tiny’ performers to make her look bigger onstage. 

"I wish I could have chosen the nannies for my children...my dancers.. I mean if I had Christina Aguilers'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 about things people NEVER talked about!!!" Britney wrote in her Instagram post on Monday with a picture of a quote by Rodney Dangerfield, "I found there was only one way to look thin: hang out with fat people".

She continued, "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 !!!" Spears said that she would "never intentionally body shame anybody because I know what it feels like."

She further mentioned in the post, "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 !!!"
