Britney Spears forgets that she’s met Taylor Swift – twice

Singer was asked in interview would she rather share a flight with Swift or Katy Perry

Britney Spears appeared to forget that she has met Taylor Swift – on two separate occasions – while speaking in a recent interview.

Spears was speaking to LA’s KIIS radio station, which you can hear here, when she was asked whether she would rather sit next to Katy Perry or Taylor Swift on a long-haul flight to Australia.

“I don’t know! I don’t know, that’s hard. They’re both so cool, I don’t know,” Spears said in response.

She then continued: “I’ve briefly met Katy Perry at the Smurfs movie premiere. Maybe because I’ve met Katy Perry I would say Taylor Swift, because I’ve never met her before.”

However, fans have since noted that the pair have indeed met on at least two occasions, most recently at the 2008 MTV VMAs. See photos of Spears posing for pictures with Swift beneath.

Meanwhile, Spears has promised fans her new album is coming “very soon”. The singer dropped the album’s lead single ‘Make Me…’, a collaboration with rapper G-Eazy, on July 15 and saw it debut at Number 17 in the US. However, she has still yet to announce the album’s title or release date.

Asked for an update during a Tumblr Q&A with her fans, the singer replied: “Soon… Very soon!”

She also said she “really explored some new things” on the upcoming album, her follow-up to 2013’s ‘Britney Jean’ LP, which spawned the UK Top Ten hit ‘Work Bitch’. She added that the upcoming video for ‘Make Me…’ will feature “lots of female empowerment”.
