Last week, some ingenious petitioners suggested replacing a Virginia statue with Missy Elliott. This week, Britney Spears fans want to see monuments to the Confederacy in her home state of Louisiana replaced with tributes to the resilient pop star.

“Not only has Britney proven her talent, but she’s proven her strength of character by not only overcoming highly publicized mental breakdown, but by continuously working towards improving herself. She’s an inspiration to millions,” the petition reads.

“She’s already earned her star on Hollywood’s Walk of Fame, and now it’s time for her home state to honor her with the tribute that she deserves.”

The letter calls on decision makers to “do the right thing” and “replace the Confederate statues with an actual Louisiana hero.” So far, the effort has gathered more than 3,400 signatures.

“The press and the media my whole life, because one minute they tear you down, they’re really horrible, and the next minute, you’re on top of the world,” she explained to the audience.

“But, I’ve never really spoke about [it], you know? And I’m a southern girl, I’m from Louisiana. I’m from the south, and I like to keep it real. And I just want to make sure I keep having you m—–f—–s something to talk about, OK?”

Britney Spears’ Vegas show, Britney: Piece of Me, has just 18 more shows at Las Vegas’ Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino, including the last performance on December 31st.
