Female pop star power! In a new interview, Britney Spears makes a point to stick up for her younger pal, Miley Cyrus. While the “Wrecking Ball” singer has garnered a lot of negative attention over the last few months, she’s definitely found at least one fan in the 31-year-old.
The pop princesses teamed up for the track “SMS (Bangerz)” off of Miley’s recent album Bangerz, but their connection began well before that. “My mom and her mom know each other,” Britney reveals. “She’s a girl’s girl and gets the whole Southern thing. It’s just really worked out.” The ladies also share a manager.
“I’m a huge fan of hers,” the “Work Bitch” singer adds. “I think she’s brilliant right now.”
Miley has made it clear on more than one occasion that the feeling is mutual, and during her MTV documentary, she shared that she’s always wanted to work with the mom of two. “She has so much energy and she’s on fire, so for her to even be saying anything about me is just really cool,” Britney admits.
The singer’s full interview will air on London’s 95-106 Capital FM on Oct. 20.
