Britney Spears has long been championed as an icon within the gay community, and for a good reason. She's been an outspoken supporter of it, as well.
However, the "Work Bitch" singer ruffled feathers today with some of the comments she made during an interview on 99.7 NOW FM in San Francisco.
Speaking specifically about her gay following and whether or not she has a group of gay people that influences her work, Britney Spears responded:
"A lot of my hair stylists and my beauty team that I work with are gay so I hang out with gays a lot and I just think they're adorable and hilarious!"
Well intentioned as she may be, Spears recently came under fire for alleged "gay marketing" and angling to "exploit" her enormous LGBT fan base.
Comments like this are sure to raise some eyebrows and earn her some more criticism, but on the plus side, she didn't give her usual yes or no answers.
