Over the weekend, Britney Spears caused a stir on Instagram when she revealed that she was an original fan of Taylor Swift. The pop star shared a throwback photo from 2003 featuring herself and a young Taylor backstage. While Britney was already a global sensation at the time, Taylor was a 14-year-old up-and-coming singer. It would be three more years before Taylor hit it big with her single “Tim McGraw” and began her journey to billionaire status. In her caption, Britney shared that 20 years ago, a teenage Taylor approached her through a third party and sang for her, leaving the older singer amazed.
A while back, something pretty awesome happened to me. During my Oops Tour, a knock came at my door. It was my friend who was working as my boss’s assistant, trying to become a manager. He told me that a girl named Taylor wanted to sing for me. I eagerly welcomed her in and watched as she strummed her guitar and sang a beautiful song. I was blown away by her talent! We even snapped a picture together. Fast forward to today, and that same girl has become one of the most successful pop stars of our generation. I have to admit, I have a bit of a girl crush on her. She’s so talented and beautiful! In fact, I often choose to watch her music videos over movies. The iconic photo of us together at the MTV Video Music Awards in 2008 was shown, but we actually took the first picture backstage in 2003. By that point, Taylor was already famous for her hit songs like “You Belong With Me.” Now, she’s on her world tour, Eras, which has been a massive financial success and has helped her become a billionaire.
Britney recently published a best-selling memoir called The Woman In Me, where she pokes fun at her ex-boyfriend Justin Timberlake and her family. After her conservatorship ended in 2021, Britney expressed anger towards her mother and referred to her as the “mastermind” behind the plan. In her book, Britney accuses Lynne of helping to dispose of her dolls, and Lynne responded on Instagram, denying the claim and expressing her love and willingness to return Britney’s belongings. However, in a recent note added to a Taylor Swift post, Britney rejected her mother’s offer and stated that she doesn’t care anymore.
