Before there were power couples Jay Z and Beyonce and Kim Kardashian and Kanye West, there was Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake. What made the couples relationship so special was that the two grew up together in the public spotlight, from the Mickey Mouse Club to the music industry. However, some things come to an end and unfortunately, this power couple did as well. During an interview with USA Today, Britney discussed which artists in the industry inspire her today, “[I] look up to Beyoncé, what she did with her (surprise release) album was genius, really brilliant.”, she explained. When asked about Miley Cyrus, who shares the same manager as the singer, “She’s cool, she’s fun to be around. You know, she’s got really good energy.” Of course the “Work B*tch” singer is influenced by the king of pop, “[My]favorite part of the show, where it’s just me in the spotlight (during Me Against the Music) with a hat on, which is really a tribute to Michael.” Britney’s also a fan of Lorde, Bruno Mars and yes, her ex-boyfriend, Justin Timberlake. “[Lorde] is really different and cool … This generation is hungry for new sounds. Bruno Mars is so different and fresh, and Justin Timberlake is, too. It’s inspiring for me, and it makes people eager to listen to music, which helps everyone.”, she admitted. Look at that! Now wouldn’t it be nice if they got back together!? In our dreams! Check out the duo back in 2001 on TRL below!
