Britney Spears has denounced Kelly Clarkson over a comment she made in 2008.
In recent days, a clip of the Since U Been Gone singer discussing Britney’s personal issues during an interview for radio station Q100 Atlanta has resurfaced online.
At the time, Kelly was promoting her album My December, while Britney was on the publicity track for her 2007 record Blackout, shortly after divorcing Kevin Federline and being admitted to treatment centers for mental health problems.
“Man, but wouldn’t it be funny if she didn’t give a damn about anyone?” Kelly jokingly told the Q100 hosts in Atlanta in early 2008. “Because it would be really funny if she said, ‘Just kidding! I mean, think about it. She didn’t do any press for her album, which I love by the way… She didn’t do any press, she got so much press on all this other stuff.
Britney has now responded to the comment, taking to Instagram on Wednesday to post a video of herself dancing in a green dress and calling out Kelly in the accompanying caption.
“I don’t forget”… wouldn’t you like her to say she’s joking??? Clarkson…in a world where bullying has been heartbreaking, I’ve had my share…Can we get an AWW??? Psss…I’m not kidding…play on friends, play on (sic)!!!” the 40-year-old wrote.
Kelly has yet to respond to Britney’s message.
The popstar’s controversial conservatorship was officially terminated last November.
