ZOE SALDANA DEFENDS BRITNEY SPEARS
It may be more than a decade since Zoe Saldana and Britney Spears played two young friends road tripping across the country, but Saldana still has her former co-star’s back.
The “Guardians of the Galaxy” star appeared on “Watch What Happens Live" on Thursday, July 31, and addressed Britney Spears’ recent "Alien" Auto-Tune controversy. When asked by a fan calling in to the show if she had heard the leaked song without Auto-Tune, Saldana immediately responded,
"Well, that’s mean because I’m pretty sure that 80 percent of our musical artists would be mortified if they were caught singing without Auto-Tune."
The actress went on to defend Spears by saying how humble she was when they first met.
“I have a huge amount of respect for Britney Spears,” Saldana said. "I’ve always said this, and I will always continue to say it: She was the one big, big celebrity that I met when I was starting to work in Hollywood, who literally was humble, and whatever was going on in her mind there in her world, it was never about hating her neighbor.”
“She was the only pop star at the time — and I can name a lot of prominent figures right now that are today more famous than Britney that literally got to where they were at by hating on Britney, because it was cool at one time to just diss her — and Britney never did that.”
"I have a huge amount of respect for Britney Spears, I do believe that people and children gravitate to good energy, and she’s definitely an abundance of that."
