While the rest of the world is resuming their everyday activities, as the festive season ends, Madonna’s daughter Lourdes Leon is showing her support for pop star Britney Spears. The 25-year-old known for staying out of drama and keeping her personal life private shared an unexpected throwback picture. The dancer transported her Instagram followers through her story to the 2003 MTV VMAs.

What’s The Solidarity About?

Until 2021, Britney Spears was in a conservatorship under her parents for 13 years. This situation changed her life forever as the pop star spoke up about her abuse during those years. Before her eventual success, Britney tried to void the conservatorship and had Madonna speak up on her behalf.

The 63-year-old singer spoke out on social media saying “Give this woman her life back. Slavery was abolished so long ago! Death to the greedy patriarchy that has been doing this to women for centuries. This is a violation of human rights! Britney, we coming to get you out of jail!” Years later, Lourdes joins her mother to stand in solidarity with the 40-year-old pop star.

The young dancer snapped in a cow leather tube outfit showing her twin butterfly tattoo. She lays her hair flat, showing a clear, makeup-free face and single nose piercing. The well-stocked bookshelf in the background isn’t the star of the show, but the heart-shaped picture frame stuck to the mirror is.

The frame features little Lourdes in a white dress posing alongside a young Britney Spears also in a white dress. In a small Instastory text, she typed, “Solidarity @britneyspears.”

Madonna And Britney Spears’ Iconic Performance

While Britney and her former friend Christina Aguilera performed Hollywood, Madonna joined the powerhouse duo to rend Like a Virgin. The performance rocked the entire entertainment world because of Madonna and Britney’s steamy surprise at the end. The sexy women locked lips in an unexpected turn of events sending the crowd into a frenzy.

To date, the 2003 MTV VMAs remains one of the most iconic stage performances at an award show. Madonna never hid her respect and love for the younger artist, and it appears the admiration rubbed off on her eldest daughter.
