Spears, who is still number one on the New York Times best sellers list with her The Woman In Me memoir, posted photos of herself and Swift on Instagram.
She says the first image was taken backstage at a Spears’ Oops … I Did It Again tour in 2003 (even though the Oops tour ran from 2000-2001).
Either way, it was before Swift released her first album and when she was still unknown. In the accompanying caption, Spears revealed how the meeting came about.
“This is way back when, but kinda cool,” Spears began. “During my Oops Tour, I got a knock at my door. 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.’ 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 💄 💄 💄”
Taylor Swift went on to release her first, self-titled album, in 2006, when she was just 16 years old. She had begun taking vocal classes at age nine and submitting demo tapes to record labels a couple of years later. Swift is currently in the middle of her record-breaking Eras tour.
Although full of praise for Swift, Britney also used the post to take a swipe at her mom. She went on to allude to something she thought her mom had done.
“Ps mom I love you so so much, but there were 3 dolls in the cabinets when I went home 2 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.”
The combined message amused some fans.
