BRITNEY’S AN INSPIRATION FOR SELENA GOMEZ’S UPCOMING WORLD TOUR

"I kind of miss 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 are Britney and Janet Jackson, so I kind of want to do a little bit more dancing and make it about the entertainment and the show and the songs as opposed to how big the stage is or how many effects we can have." - Selena Gomez in a recent interview with Ryan Seacrest.

"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." - Selena Gomez

"SPRING BREAKERS" DIRECTOR: BRITNEY’S LIKE AN ENERGY

In an interview with PitchFork.com“Spring Breakers” director Harmony Korine says Britney’s music, which is featured twice in the movie, is deeper than the public’s preconceived notion.

He also says her persona is comparable to an energy. Check out the interview below…

Pitchfork: You chose Britney Spears as a thread, but her music really predates the teenage girls featured in the film. Why Britney?
HK: Britney was the forebear to this pop insanity that seems to have taken over, she’s the best at that. This might sound crazy, but there’s something much more complicated in her music. On the surface, it’s poppy and airless and morose and beautiful, but underneath, I always felt like there was a violence and a pathology.

Pitchfork: She’s kind of a tragic American hero now.
HK: It’s weird, though. She’s more like magic now. I don’t view her as tragic. She’s almost more than a person– she’s like an energy.

Meanwhile the cast of the movie played a game during an interview with MTV where they had to finish the next line of a Britney lyric given.
