Britney Spears says she’s ‘such a fan’ of Pamela Anderson for being a ‘sex icon’ and praises her sons for defending her… even as Britney’s sons chose not to see her over risqué posts

Britney Spears had nothing but praise for Pamela Anderson in an Instagram post that she briefly shared on Thursday.

The 41-year-old pop superstar’s post, which was quickly deleted, praised Anderson for being a sex symbol at the height of her Baywatch fame, and Britney added that the actress was ‘still’ very much a sex symbol years later.

But in her lengthy caption, Britney got more serious as she saluted the 55-year-old actress’ sons Brandon Thomas Lee, 26, and Dylan Jagger Lee, 25, whom she shares with her ex-husband Tommy Lee.

Pamela’s sons have lately spoken out in her defense ahead of the premiere of the new Netflix documentary about her, Pamela, A Love Story, and they have spoken critically about the Hulu miniseries Pam & Tommy, which their mother disapproved of.

Britney’s comments praising Pamela’s sons arrive as her own sons Sean, 17, and Jayden, 16, have opted to not see her in recent months, which their father Kevin Federline claimed was due to Britney’s bizarre and sometimes risqué social media posts. 

‘I’m such a fan of Pamela Anderson,’ Britney began her lengthy caption, which was attached to a seemingly unrelated black-and-white photo from 1941 by D. H. Calcraft that showed a group of children chalking up a sidewalk.

‘She was the only sex icon at one time in America and she still is!!!’ the singer–songwriter gushed.

‘I really respect the fact that her children stood up for her relating to the fact that people were trying to sell her story from the past!!!’ she continued. ‘They said “why the hell bring up things that happened 20 years ago if that really messed up my mom???’

Britney mentioned a ‘comedic TV comparison,’ which appeared to be a reference to Pam & Tommy, which starred Lily James as sex tape–era Pamela, while Avengers: Endgame star Sebastian Stan played Tommy Lee.

‘He went on to say because of the embarrassment she went through a very dark period in her life … I mean when I read THAT, I was like DAMN!!!’ the singer continued, noting a connection between herself and Pam.

‘With 4 documentaries released about me last year with people I adore speaking about my past!!! THAT alone was almost as hard as what I went through in my past!!!’ she continued.

As usual, her caption turned into a rebuke of her father Jamie Spears and her brother Bryan. She appeared to call out her father for ‘tak[ing] over for 15 years of my life!!!’

Britney also blasted Bryan for thinking that ‘THAT TIME WAS REALLY GOOD FOR OUR FAMILY.’

‘I’M SURE IT WAS… giving me way too much work while he while they HAD THEIR MEETINGS [sic],’ she wrote. ‘I know I’ve spoken about this a couple of times but 15 years is an extremely long time!!!’

She returned to the subject of Pamela Anderson, writing, ‘So Pamela gave me an understanding that people should support you exactly where you are in that moment of your life…’

Britney then wondered if it makes ‘other people and my family subconsciously and secretly feel WAAAAY better about themselves to embarrass me and bring up my past??? The answer is yes!!! 100%!!!’

She concluded by criticizing how she was portrayed in the recent spate of documentaries, calling them ‘extremely embarrassing.’

‘It felt semi-illegall!!! But you know I was told once we all die in the end… chill out and let it go!!!’ 

Britney brought up Pamela’s son approvingly after the two publicly defended their mother.

In the new documentary, Dylan said he felt Pam & Tommy — which was created by Robert Siegel and and also starred Seth Rogen — was done in bad taste and poorly put together from a storytelling perspective. 

‘Why bring something up from 20 years ago that you know f***ed someone up?’ Dylan said. ‘The worst part of her life and making a semi-comedy out of it didn’t make sense.’

In the documentary, Brandon — who made headlines in 2018 amid a fight with his father — said that he wished his mother had ‘made the money’ by agreeing to license the tape.
