Britney Spears took to Instagram yesterday (24 January) to criticise the paparazzi for body shaming her, branding the media "hateful".

Speaking to her 39.2 million followers on the social media platform, the singer said: "Paps still show pics of me on the balcony with fat rolls!!!! The media has always been hateful to me!!!"

Alongside a series of holiday snaps, in which she could be seen sunbathing in a bikini and dancing in a crop top and shorts, she added "I know my body is not perfect by any means but I also know I definitely don’t look like that!!!! Guess I should stay at the gym for three hours like Sam does lol... NEVER."

In the comments section, fans and celebrity friends alike jumped to her defence and praised her for speaking up. "Queen your body is beautiful! Nobody in this world is perfect so don’t worry! We love you" said one fan, with another commenting: "You are absolutely gorgeous the way you are! Do what makes you happy!!"

In a follow up post, Britney shared a video of herself sunbathing and revealed to her followers that she hasn't been feeling well as of late. "I think I have a small bug… the only thing that is similar to this feeling is when I was pregnant" she wrote in the caption. "It’s the nausea that is the worst… It’s like I can’t wake up so I go to the gym trying to wake my system up!!! It’s like clockwork."

The singer continued: "I break my first sweat then I go to the bathroom and throw up… it’s absolutely horrible but then I stay at the gym because I don’t want to go home and lay sick in bed… I keep going and [at] night I go dancing and my system starts to get clarity." She then explained that this has "been going on for a month", adding that she's lost two pounds as a result.

Commenting further on the paparazzi that have allegedly followed her on holiday, Britney said the media are "hiding" outside her room. "If you’re outside my room trying to get another cheap shot of me… please go f*ck yourself and leave me alone" she said. "I should be able to run around naked if I choose to."

Freedom to run around naked for all? We certainly support that.
