Selena Gomez Channels Her Inner Britney Spears

Selena Gomez Channels Her Inner Britney Spears

Britney recently tweeted her love for Selena's sultry MTV Movie Awards performance to "Come & Get It," and it's only natural that she adored the show — it was inspired by Brit's own epic "I'm a Slave 4 U" breakdown at the 2001 VMAs!

Selena told, "My favorite MTV performance for any of the awards would be Britney [Spears'] '[I'm a] Slave 4 U.' I just loved it. I thought it was super-iconic, and she owned that stage. The routine was impeccable. She looked beautiful. It was kind of when she had her transitioning moment, and that definitely inspired me for this one, for sure."

This isn't the first time Selena channeled her inner Brit Brit — 
the young pop star performed a medley of Britney hits during her 2011 summer tour.

The Spring Breakers star also said her upcoming world tour is hugely inspired by Dancney, saying, "I kind of missed shows when it used to just be about the dancing and the performing as opposed to how big and elaborate the stage is, so I kind of want to get back to that. My favorites were Britney and Janet Jackson so I kind of want it to be a bit more dancing and make it about entertainment and about the show and the songs as opposed to how big the stage and effects are."

Check out Selena's Movie Awards performance below, along with Brit's iconic VMAs show from back in the day. xx
