Britney Spears on How Her Dad's Body-Shaming Comments Have Affected Her
Britney Spears opened up about her insecurities, revealing she's considered getting a breast augmentation, which stemmed from body-shaming comments her dad, Jamie Spears, made against her in the past.
"It’s crazy living in Los Angeles … I was thinking about getting a boob job … My boobs are fairly small," the singer wrote in a now-deleted lengthy Instagram post. "I mean with the right bra it’s fine, but I was curious about what a doctor would say!!!"
She continued, "I lost seven pounds in the last six months, and that’s a lot for me!!! I'm officially part of the 'itty bitty titty committee’ … They shrunk!!! I don’t know where my boobs went."
Spears went on to explain she even made an appointment for a consultation, but ended up leaving because "nobody was there" to let her in, and she's "never been back."
The pop star then got candid about how her father criticized her body throughout her conservatorship, which ended in November 2021 after nearly 14 years.
"My dad always told me I was fat and being the heavy girl on stage wasn’t fun … It was humiliating!!!" Spears claimed, adding she only "had one good" magazine cover printed during her years working under the conservatorship.
"The rest were extremely bad!!!" she explained. "They could have at least used technology … But they used it to make it worse!!! Such a f--king waste of time."
The singer also shared her thoughts on beauty in correlation to inner happiness. "I personally believe people can be happy whether they are skinny, old, fat, whatever ... If you are happy and have good energy, you are 100% attractive. God knows the secret to my success was never how beautiful I was!!!" she wrote. "I believe I was a tease … Just a very cool energy!!!"
