Even though this will likely never happen, we'll always secretly hope Justin Timberlake and Britney Spears get back together…
And we know she's still got feelings for him—especially because the Piece Of Me singer looks to her former lover for musical inspiration!
In a new interview, Brit-Brit confessed to pulling from pop contemporaries like Justin, Beyoncé, Miley Cyrus, and more to get her creative juices flowing:
"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."
UGH. Be still our matching denim hearts!
The 32-year-old momma also explained how she loved Queen Bey's "genius" and "brilliant" surprise album concept—and Mileybird's amazingly cool energy!
We're simply OBsessing over this special respect and admiration between stars!
…And the bubble gum pop power couple that still talks about each other with love!
