  • Aguilera added that she will always be there for Spears

Christina Aguilera is showing her support for Britney Spears, months after the latter called her out for being silent when asked about her conservatorship.

On Friday, the "What a Girl Wants" singer spoke with media personality Enrique Santos while promoting her new Spanish EP, "La Fuerza." During their conversation, Santos asked her if she has spoken to Spears since her conservatorship was terminated in November last year.

Aguilera admitted that she hasn't but said she "would love to" speak with Spears and would always be open to the idea.

She also told Santos that she "wanted to be careful" discussing the "Toxic" hitmaker and her conservatorship, explaining, "I never want to speak out of turn about somebody that I have so much respect and admiration for."

Aguilera went on to say she is "so happy" that Spears was freed from the restrictive legal arrangement that had controlled her personal, medical and financial affairs since February 2008.

"I couldn't be happier for her, and every woman deserves to feel empowered and to own that for themselves, however they see fit," she said.

Aguilera, who first appeared on the "Mickey Mouse Club" with Spears in 1993, told Santos that "growing up in this business can be freakin' crazy."

"If anybody gets that and understands what that means at that time coming up, it definitely would be her and I," she said.

She then extended her help and support to Spears and other women. "I will always be here to reach out to," Aguilera added. "I love, you know, being able to connect like that with other women … it's very important, now more than ever, now that we do have the ability to connect, that that happens and that we always feel unified."

Spears previously called out Aguilera in November 2021 for allegedly refusing to speak when asked about her conservatorship during a red carpet interview at the Latin Grammy Awards.

When Aguilera was asked by a reporter if she has talked to Spears since her conservatorship ended, Aguilera's publicist cut in to pull her away, saying, "No, we're not doing that tonight. I'm sorry."

The "Lady Marmalade" singer frowned, telling reporters she couldn't answer the question before walking away and adding, "But I'm happy for her."

The "Baby One More Time" singer wasn't happy with her childhood co-star's lack of response and took to Instagram Stories to slam Aguilera.

"I love and adore everyone who supported me … but refusing to speak when you know the truth is equivalent to a lie!!!" Spears wrote. "13 years being in a corrupt abusive system yet why is such a hard topic for people to talk about??? I'm the one who went through it!!! All the supporters who spoke up and supported me thank you … Yes, I do matter!"

Months before this, however, Aguilera spoke out against Spears' conservatorship in a June 2021 Twitter thread, writing: "It is unacceptable that any woman, or human, wanting to be in control of their own destiny might not be allowed to live life as they wish."

Aguilera continued: "To a woman who has worked under conditions and pressure unimaginable to most, I promise you she deserves all of the freedom possible to live her happiest life. My heart goes out to Britney. She deserves all the true love and support in the world."
