Madonna Promises To Get Britney Spears‘Out Of Jail’ As She Breaks Silence OnConservatorship

Madonna condemned Britney Spears’ conservatorship in a fiery new statement.

Madonna has voiced her support for Britney Spears amid her conservatorship battle. The “Like a Prayer” singer, 62, shared an Instagram Story on July 8 and lambasted the legal arrangement, calling it a “violation of human rights.” Madonna shared the message against the backdrop of a throwback photo of herself in a bedazzled Britney t-shirt and pink fuzzy boa.

“Give this woman her life back. Slavery was abolished so long ago! Death to the greedy patriarchy that has been doing this to women for centuries.” The singer added, “This is a violation of human rights! Britney we coming to get you out of jail!”

The support is mutual: the duo shared an infamous moment with fellow pop star Christina Aguilera in the early aughts. On stage at the 2003 MTV Video Music Awards, the trio shared a passionate kiss during a performance. In an interview with Harper’s Bazaar in 2011, Britney looked back at the moment and gushed about the star. “I actually saw [Madonna] a couple of weeks ago at a party,” she said. “I guess she’s really taught me to stay true to myself. That seems like a simple thing to say, but she taught me through action, not just by saying it. There are so many people around you that have opinions, but you just have to listen to your instincts.”

Madonna’s comments come after Britney addressed a judge for the first time in June, pleading to be freed from the 13-year conservatorship and calling the arrangement “abusive.” The pop star delivered a harrowing testimony about how the conservatorship has stripped her of all autonomy. Britney also called for the removal of her father Jamie as co-conservator, but he still remains in the role. Meanwhile, Bessemer Trust, the financial firm that splits conservator duties with Jamie, has filed documents to resign from the conservatorship, citing Britney’s latest court testimonial. Per NPR, the next court hearing for the conservatorship will be July 14; it will center on Bessemer Trust’s request to withdraw from the conservatorship.

Madonna joins a chorus of other celebrities who have rallied behind Britney. Mariah Carey, Brandy, Justin Timberlake, and Miley Cyrus have also expressed their support.

Where has Madonna's articulate, unique, intelligent brain gone? She used to do interviews in print and on television that showed she had a mind of her own and a voice with an independent take on things. She was worth listening to, and she was successful in changing society - especially in the USA - because she thought for herself and encouraged, in word and deed, other people to think for themselves.

These days all she does is the total opposite: she posts strings of clichés.

She seems to have replaced her faith in a version of the kabalah with faith in a ropey, empty-headed, conspiracy theory.

Is it just the effects of being rich and famous for so long? It happens to lots of rich and famous people. Whatever the cause, it's such a shame.
