Kim Kardashian sympathises with Britney Spears and recalls her bad moments
Kim Kardashian feels ’empathy’ for Britney Spears after watching her documentary produced by the New York Times, “Framing Britney Spears”. The ‘Keeping Up With The Kardashians‘ star feels relatable to the trauma that Britney has gone through over the years at the hands of media. Kim recently saw the documentary and expressed her thoughts about it through her IG stories.
She posted: “So I finally watched the Britney Spears documentary this week, and it made me feel a lot of empathy for her,” she wrote. “The way the media played a big role in her life the way it did can be very traumatising, and it can really break even the strongest person. No matter how public someone’s life may seem, no-one deserves to be treated with such cruelty or judgment for entertainment.”
An Emotional Moment for Kardashian!
Kim Kardashian also recalls an emotional moment in her life when she was pregnant with North after watching the documentary of Britney Spears. “When I was pregnant with North, I suffered from pre-eclampsia, which made me swell uncontrollably. I gained 60lb and delivered almost six weeks early, and I cried every single day over what was happening to my body, mainly from the pressures of being constantly compared to what society considered a healthy pregnant person should look like – as well as being compared to Shamu the whale by the media.”
“Looking at all of the photos of myself online and in magazines made me so insecure, and I had this fear of wondering if I would ever get my pre-baby body back,” she continued.
Kim Kardashian talks about the time when she was body-shamed
Kim Kardashian related to Britney spears in a lot of ways. She even called out various tabloids that body-shamed her while she was pregnant for the very first time, which eventually made her insecure, and she couldn’t leave her house for months. She posted stories of some magazine covers that used insulting headlines like “Kim’s new meltdown – I’ll never be sexy again” and was even compared to a whale.
“Luckily I was able to take these frustrating, embarrassing feelings and channel it into motivation to get me where I am today, but to say this didn’t take a toll on me mentally would be a lie. I’m sharing this just to say I really hope everyone involved in the business of shaming and bullying someone to the point of breaking them down might reconsider and instead try to show some understanding and compassion.”
