Britney Spears just inadvertently rubbed more salt into Taylor Swift’s wounds by failing to remember they have met.
The 34-year-old singer was interviewed on Australian radio station KIIS 106.5FM and asked who she would rather sit next to on a flight: Katy Perry or Taylor Swift.
The question, of course, refers to the recent drama that unfolded between Taylor and the husband and wife team of Kanye West and Kim Kardashian.
“They’re both so cool, I don’t know,” Britney said in an obvious effort to avoid causing any drama.
That effort failed soon after when she said she “briefly met Katy Perry at the Smurfs movie premiere.”
“So maybe because I’ve met Katy Perry, I would say Taylor Swift because I’ve never met her before.”
Either Britney just pulled a Mariah Carey style “I don’t know who J.Lo is” or she has a very poor memory, because they met at the 2008 MTV Video Music Awards. And there is photo proof of it!
Either way, this isn’t really helping Tay Tay recover from her recent losing streak against #TeamKanye.
