Selena Gomez And Britney Spears Had A Sweet Instagram Exchange About Selena’s Childhood Video

·2-min read

Selena Gomez is a child of the 1990s and early 2000s. This means she, like the rest of us who spent any time alone in our rooms singing along to our boom boxes, was a fan of Britney Spears.

This week, she shared a video of her as a child, complete with a Windows Media Player background and blue-tinted sunglasses, singing along to Britney Spears’s 'Don’t Go Knockin’ on My Door'. She captioned it 'the hustle was real'.

Here’s something that happens when one child of the 1990s posts a very relatable video or photo: we all come flocking to say 'I see you.' That’s exactly what happened in Gomez’s Instagram comments. Actually, in this case, one 1980s child in particular left a comment on Gomez’s Instagram: the pop queen herself, Britney Spears.

'This is the most adorable thing I’ve ever seen 😱❤️💃🏼 !!!!!,' she wrote.

If this interaction is making you want a real Gomez/Spears collab, they have technically done one. In 2016, they both took part in recording the song 'Hands' to support the victims of the Pulse shooting in Orlando. The charity single was from Interscope Records with support from GLAAD and featured 24 artists including Spears, Gomez, Jennifer Lopez, Gwen Stefani, Jason Derulo, Meghan Trainor, Juanes, Pink, and Mary J. Blige.

Around the time of that song’s release, Gomez tweeted that she and Spears had kind of/sort of done a collab. Spears retweeted her and called for a real collaboration in the future.

Ummm...can we actually make this happen? We’ve been through a lot this past 15 months. We all deserve some new Selena/Britney content, as a treat.
