Selena Gomez calls Britney Spears a ‘rare beauty’ and ‘huge inspiration’ as #FreeBritney movement rages on – The Sun
SELENA Gomez has called Britney Spears a "rare beauty" who is a "huge inspiration" to her.
The Disney alum, 28, heaped on the praise after Britney, 38, referenced Selena's song lyrics in a makeup-free video on Instagram.
Britney showed off her freckles as she discussed the pressures of growing up with fame in her latest clip.
She wrote: “For the first time in my life I’m going without lots and lots of makeup !!!!!!
"These clips show a closer look at my face….which is very scary for me…you can actually see my freckles!!!!”
“Growing up in Hollywood can be hard !!!! It’s all about looks….and the press can be pretty mean…..’why does she look so old’… ‘why does she look so young’…’why is she too big’…’why is she too skinny’ ?!?!!!!"
The Toxic singer then quoted Selena's 2015 hit song Kill 'Em With Kindness.
Britney penned: "As Selena Gomez says…..the world can be a nasty place…kill them with kindness…GOD BLESS YOU ALL !!!! And with all that love right back to ya!!”
Her caption certainly got Selena's attention, with the Wolves singer commenting: “You’ve always been beautiful and a huge inspiration to me. You’re rare beauty!!!”
Rare is the name of Selena's last album, as well as her beauty line.
The sweet social media exchange comes amid Britney's latest attempt to remove her father Jamie as her conservator.
The Slave 4 U singer has now nominated a trust company to oversee her finances, after stating she wants a "qualified corporate fiduciary" to serve as executor of her estate.
Britney reportedly thinks Jamie "treats her like a child" and "doesn't listen to her".
"Britney still wants the conservatorship to end at some point," a source told People.
"But more urgently right now she doesn't want her dad to regain the sole conservator role. Jamie is very old school. He treats Britney like a child," the insider added.
Britney said she was "strongly opposed" to Jamie being her conservator, in court documents filed in August.
A Los Angeles judge later ruled that the 38-year-old will remain under the legal control of her father, Jamie Spears until at least February 2021.
Britney lost her battle to have her father removed as the sole guardian of her legal and financial affairs at an LA courthouse.
Why is #freebritney trending and what does the star have to say about her conservatorship?
Britney's conservatorship has sparked outrage among fans, particularly since she herself has made it clear she does not want it to continue in its current form.
It was implemented in 2008 after a series of public meltdowns.
Britney's lawyer, Samuel D Ingham III has said that she is "strongly opposed" to Jamie Spears continuing to control her affairs.
Due to health issues last year – which are came after claims of a physical altercation with his grandson Sean Preston – Jamie had stepped down temporarily from his role in Britney's conservatorship.
Britney instead wants Jodi Montgomery, who is a trained conservator, to have permanent control.
Jamie Spears says Britney's conservatorship is "no one else's business" and #FreeBritney movement "is a joke."
He told Page Six: "All these conspiracy theorists don't know anything. The world don't have a clue.
"It's up to the court of California to decide what's best for my daughter. It's no one else's business."
The Toxic songstress had asked a judge to make her temporary care manager Jodi Montgomery – who took over last year when her father became ill – to continue permanently as her conservator.
She also wants "a major overhaul in how her conservatorship is run is needed to reflect her current lifestyle and her wishes".
This confirms reports that the star no longer wishes to perform at this moment in time.
