When the “Make Me …” singer, 34, was asked during an appearance on Most Requested Live With Romeo on Saturday, August 27, which of her fellow music artists she’d like to work with in the future, she named a handful of her favorite singers.
Things then took an unexpected turn as the pop princess added, “Justin Timberlake is very good.” (Stop breaking our hearts again, Brit!)
Nostalgia aside, Spears has been busy promoting her ninth studio album, Glory, which was released earlier this week. She is set to perform at the 2016 MTV Video Music Awards for the first time in nearly a decade on Sunday, August 28, where she will treat viewers to a performance of her new single “Make Me…” with rapper G-Eazy.
“She’s been on that stage many times,” the entertainer’s longtime manager Larry Rudolph recently told the Los Angeles Times of her VMA return. “She hadn’t wanted to do [the VMAs] for a while [because] she wanted to focus on other things, but she decided she wanted to do them again, so we’re doing them again. The VMAs are special. I don’t want to lump them in with every other award show. She’s like the queen of the VMAs. Probably three or four of the most iconic moments in MTV history are of her at the VMAs. We’re very mindful of that and respectful of the platform.”
The 2016 MTV Video Music Awards air on MTV Sunday, August 28, at 9 p.m. ET.
