Britney Spears seemingly hits out at pal Selena Gomez over a 2016 speech

Britney Spears seemingly hit out at her pal Selena Gomez in a bizarre post shared to Instagram on Tuesday.

The 40-year-old pop star appeared to make reference to an acceptance speech Gomez, 30, made at the 2016 American Music Awards after taking home the Favorite Female Pop/Rock Artist gong.

‘I don’t want to see your bodies on Instagram. I wanna see what’s in here,’ says Gomez, while gesturing to her heart. ‘I’m not trying to get validation nor do I need it anymore.’

Spears nearly quotes the first line verbatim in Tuesday’s post before voicing her disdain for ‘righteous speeches’ and women who ‘shame’ other women.

‘Don’t you just love the nerve of women who stand firmly getting awards and speak on their beliefs about not showing their bodies on instagram???!!!!!’ Spears began.

‘They say “This is NOT something I would do” yet those women are the very ones who get 4 million dollar budget videos made about sucking and licking on homemade ice cream!!!!’

The ‘homemade ice cream’ music video may be a reference to Gomez’s 2020 collaboration with the South Korean girl group BLACKPINK, titled Ice Cream.

The music video was released in August 2020 and featured visuals of Gomez, as well as BLACKPINK members Jisoo, Jennie, Rosé, and Lisa, manning an ice cream truck and snacking on ice cream cones.

'I don't want to see your bodies on Instagram.  I wanna see what's in here,' says Gomez, while gesturing to her heart.  'I'm not trying to get validation nor do I need it anymore'

Information regarding the music video’s budget has not been shared publicly.

Spears continued: ‘These other girls have nothing but beautiful bodies !!!! Who cares if the flaunt it ??? THEY SHOULD!!!’

‘So the next time I see someone with a big budget video sucking on lollipops yet giving righteous speeches shaming other women for exposing their bodies, I would like to tell those people don’t be a hypocrite as you suck on your lollipop having HUGE budget dreams…

‘why would you stand firmly against girls getting attention JUST LIKE YOU and they have absolutely nothing ????’ Spears concluded. The Toxic hitmaker included an image of herself giving a red bikini top inside her Thousand Oaks home.

After publishing the cryptic post to Instagram, fans of Spears began to speculate that Gomez may be the subject.

Any beef between the two singers would come as a shock being that Gomez was one of the invited to attend Spears’ wedding to actor Sam Asghari, 28, this past June.

The ceremony was held at Spears’ Thousand Oaks estate and featured a slew of celebrity guests, including Madonna, Drew Barrymore and Paris Hilton.

When asked about her attendance, Gomez told ET that she thinks Spears was surrounded by ‘a lot of people that love her’ that day.

Two months after tying the knot, Spears honored the date by sharing a message to Instagram where she thanked the Disney Channel alum for wishing her happiness.

‘Thank you to Selena for telling me all she wants is for me to be happy 3 times !!! It was a very, very, very special wedding!!!’ she wrote.

The mother-of-two also featured a photo of Gomez in the post.

Though the pair do not appear to have worked together in the past, Gomez did previously record a song Britney wrote called Whiplash.

The tune was supposed to be on Spears’ 2008 album Circus, but didn’t make the cut, so Selena was able to record it when she was performing with Selena Gomez and The Scene.

‘It was an honor,’ she told MTV News. ‘I just heard the song; I fell in love with it. They gave it to me, the producers who worked on it, and I came and sang and saw that she had co-written it, so I was very excited.’
