Britney Spears: 'Taught' by Madonna "to stay true" to self
'The Princess of Pop' Britney Spears has said that Madonna taught her to "stay true" to herself.
Eight years ago, at the MTV Video Music Awards, Spears and Madonna famously shared a kiss on stage, and have a close friendship, as well as collaborating professionally on several projects.
The 29-year-old singer revealed that, she recently saw the pop veteran at a party, in an interview with Harper's Bazaar.
"I guess she's really taught me to stay true to myself," Spears explained.
"That seems like a simple thing to say, but she taught me through action, not just by saying it. There are so many people around you that have opinions, but you just have to listen to your instincts."
Brit, whose seventh studio album 'Femme Fatale' recently went platinum in the US, recently admitted that she is targeting the career longevity that Madonna has enjoyed.
