Aw, Brit Brit. I still love you.
Britney Spears said in a new interview that she’d like to spend some alone time with Taylor Swift since she “[hasn’t] met her.” Which would be cute except Britney HAS met her:..TWICE.
During a Sunday, July 31, chat with Australia’s Kyle & Jackie O Show, Spears, 34, was asked if she’d rather hang out with Swift or the 1989 hitmaker’s nemesis Katy Perry: “Who would you rather sit next to on a 24-hour flight to Sydney, Taylor Swift or Katy Perry?”
“I don’t know! I don’t know, that’s hard,” the pop superstar replied. “They’re both so cool, I don’t know.”
“I’ve briefly met Katy Perry at the Smurfs  movie premiere [in 2011],” she added. “Maybe because I’ve met Katy Perry, I would say Taylor Swift, because I’ve never met her before.”

…then some pics started circulating of the two back in 2008 (one is above) when Spears swept the MTV Video Music Awards with big wins for her “Piece of Me” video. And, as various Taylor Swift fan sites have pointed out, Tay also met Spears in 2003 when she was about 14 years old. Either Taylor didn’t make much of an impression or Britney was, um, “distracted?”
What do you think- was Britney a little tipsy when she met Taylor? Or maybe when you’re that big and you meet so many people allll the time, things slip your mind? Both are plausible, with Britney.
