Women and men, the young and the old, singers and non-singers—we all want to be like Britney Spears!
But who does the original pop princess look to for inspiration? Ex-boyfriend Justin Timberlake (!), mega-talent Beyoncé, BFF Miley Cyrus and a few more of her pop contemporaries.
"Bruno Mars is so different and fresh, and Justin Timberlake is, too," she told USA Today Friday, Dec. 27, before kicking off her Piece of Me tour in Las Vegas. "It's inspiring for me, and it makes people eager to listen to music, which helps everyone."
The 32-year-old singer also said she "looks up to Beyoncé" because "what she did with her (surprise release) album was genius, really brilliant."
As for Miley Cyrus, who was dancing and singing along front row and center at Brit's show? "She's cool, she's fun to be around," she gushed. "You know, she's got really good energy."
