Howard Stern Says He Supports 'Free Britney' Movement After Years of Criticism of Britney Spears

Howard Stern has joined the Free Britney movement.

The iconic radio talk show host opened up about the documentary and Britney Spears on his SiriusXM show this week and revealed that he does think Britney should be in charge of her own life.

“I think I’m Free Britney now, I think I’m full on Free Britney,” he stated while in conversation with co-host Robin Quivers.

Howard added that he doesn’t think she’s fully capable, however, he did compare her situation to other notable male celebrity examples where there was not any court intervention.

“Ozzy [Osbourne] bit the head off of a bat in a business meeting. He’s in charge of his own finances,” he said.

The comments come after he viewed the Framing Britney Spears documentary, which premiered earlier this month.

In the past, Howard has been a fierce critic of Britney, and notably called out her judging position on The X Factor back in 2012.

At the time he joked that the addition of Britney to the show was “a wonderful decision” because she “still thinks the earth is flat.”

“I think we’re going to tune in to see her, to see if she can function through the thing,” Howard said at the time. “As far as any real criticism, I think Simon Cowell and L.A. Reid will do that. . .I think Britney will sit there and eat a lollipop and wear a sexy outfit. I’ll tune in to see what kind of train wreck she is, absolutely.”

Years before that, Howard hosted Fred Durst on the show, who claimed he had a fling with Britney.

Howard isn’t the worst critic of Britney, but still pretty notable.

Fans have also been calling out other people of note to apologize to the singer after the interviews she had with them over their treatment of her.
