Watch Britney Spears’ chaotic, majestic Pride message

‘Because of you, I’ve had the best nights of my life. I love you so much it hurts’

When she’s not burning down her gym or advocating for socialist reform, quarantine queen Britney Spears is working tirelessly as a gay icon and ally to the LGBTQ+ community. Her latest gift is a wholesome PSA, wishing her queer friends and fans a Happy Pride Month.

“To all my friends at the LGBTQ community,” she says in a video on Instagram, “Happy Pride Month. You guys bring so much heart, passion, and articulate everything you do. Because of you, I’ve had the best nights of my life. I love you so much it hurts.”

At the end of the video, Spears’ boyfriend, Sam Asghari, starts talking off-screen. In an exasperated squeal, the singer scolds him – “baby, be quiet!” – before looking back at the camera, shocked, with her hands in the air.

Spears has always been vocal in her support for the LGBTQ+ community, previously being honoured with the Vanguard Award – presented to media figures who have made a significant difference in promoting equality – at the 2018 GLAAD Media Awards (GLAAD’s mission is to promote the accurate and inclusive representation of LGBTQ+ people in the media). 

In her acceptance speech, Spears said: “We can all join hands together here and know that we are beautiful. We can lift each other up and show our gifts without hesitation. You have all, in this room, shown me throughout my career what it means to be loved unconditionally.”
