Well, it’s clear the princess of pop is a Swiftie.
The ‘Overprotected’ singer posted side by side photos of her and Swift from back in the day.
Britney noted that the picture of the left was taken in 2003, which was just before the ‘Anti-Hero’ singer released her debut album, while the image on the right is of the two five years later.
“This is way back when but kinda cool … During my Oops Tour, I got a knock at my door,” Spears wrote.
“My good friend at the time was the assistant to my manager who was trying to become a manager himself. There was a knock, and then he said, ‘I have a girl named Taylor who wants to come in and sing for you.’”
She added that the budding country singer was ushered in and proceeded to perform for her, leaving Spears stunned.
She said: “I was like of course !!! He walks in, and she sings a beautiful song with her guitar. I was like wow wow she’s unbelievable !!! We took a picture, and she then became the most iconic pop woman of our generation.
“Kinda cool she plays stadiums, and I prefer her videos over movies any day. She’s stunning !!! Girl crush.”
At the end of her post, Spears added a message to her mother, Lynne: “Ps mom I love you so so much, but there were three dolls in the cabinets when I went home two years ago … kinda really weird you would take them out and then put them back in … so messed up. Nope, I don't want them. Keep it all. I honestly don't care anymore … honestly though.”
Spears recently released her memoir, The Woman in Me, which has become a New York Times best-seller and sold over 2.4 million copies globally.
The singer made bombshell revelations about her conservatorship and altercations with family members in the book.
In one particular part of the memoir - which Spears is likely referring to in her post - she mentions how she had a collection of Madame Alexander dolls that her parents threw out along with her journals.
Lynne defended herself against these allegations, claiming she never threw her daughter’s personal belongings out.
“I'm not sure who told you I got rid of your dolls and journals but I would never do that! That would be cruel because I know how much they mean to you. They are special to me too because of the years we spent collecting them,” the mother wrote in an Instagram post.
