Britney Spears has cleared the air after social media went abuzz on Wednesday following a Tweet she made addressing people she considers to be hypocrites.

The 'Oops!…I Did It Again' hitmaker tweeted about females who claim to be against other women showing off their bodies, while they do the same in their music risqué videos. 

"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?" she wrote in a now-deleted tweet. 

"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 !!!! 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 ????"

Many social media users believed that her tweet was aimed at Selena Gomez. This is because while giving a speech at the American Music Awards, the 'Ice Cream' hitmaker said she doesn’t want to police people’s "bodies on Instagram", instead she wants to see what is in their hearts.  

Britney has denied claims that she was throwing shade at Gomez. 

"What I said had nothing to do with anyone specific at all … it was clearly a subject in hand all women have had to deal with," she tweeted. 

She continued by saying that because she has experienced so much judgment during her career, particularly from the media, she can never judge other women.

The singer added that her tweet was "honestly referencing my days when I was younger when I got discriminated against harshly … men in interviews discussing my boobs on live TV or showing my midriff and skin !!! If anybody knows what judgment feels like I’m sure Selena has gone through something pretty similar."

She has now deleted all the tweets where she spoke about the matter.
