Britney Spears is marking LGBT Pride Month by sharing her thoughts about what her many gay fans mean to her.
‘This is my letter of love to all my LGBTQ fans,’ she writes for Billboard.com.
‘Continuously throughout my career, you’ve always been so vocal about what a positive impact I’ve had on you — that I’ve instilled joy, hope and love in you at times when there was none. That my music is an inspiration. That my story gives you hope.
‘But I have a secret to share with you. You see, it’s actually you that lifts me up.’
She goes on to explain why.
The unwavering loyalty. the lack of judgment. The unapologetic truth. Acceptance! Your stories are what inspire me, bring me joy and make me and my sons strive to be better people.’
She adds: ‘I love you.’
Spears, 35, has been a recording star for 20 years and had her share of well-publicized ups and downs over the years.
But she has been in a better place for several years now releasing albums, touring the world and enjoying a hugely successful residency in Las Vegas.
