Say what?! Britney Spears has revealed that only three short years ago in 2013 she had absolutely no idea who Justin Bieber was.
Unfortunately for Justin Bieber, 22, not everyone has the fever. In a new interview with BBC Radio, the iconic Britney Spears, 34, revealed that when she got to meet the “Baby” singer in 2013 it was a pretty bizarre experience — because she didn’t know who he was!
“I met him probably three years ago, and he walked into my hotel room, and he was a kid. Literally, he looked like he was 13 years old but he was 16,” Britney explained, recalling the moment vividly. “And I was like, ‘Who is this kid in my hotel? What is going on?’ And his mom [Pattie Mallette] was like, ‘Is there a suntanning bed located here?’ And I’m like, ‘Who are these people?’”
Despite the awkward first impression, Britney had nothing but really nice things to say about meeting Justin. “He’s very unassuming,” she shared. “He’s a very, very nice, kind boy.” Aw, that’s sweet!

Sadly, Britney also revealed that the exciting rumors of her and Justin doing a collaboration were not real. “No, there’s no truth to that at all,” she shared, slamming the rumors. That’s a real bummer, but maybe these two can work together in the future? That would be pretty cool!
