Britney Spears is like Dumbledore to Miley Cyrus‘ Harry Potter, based on what Ms. Cyrus told Huffington Post U.K. Ms. Spears is something of a mentor to the twerking mess. Here’s how Miley explained their special bond. From Us Weekly:
Everyone goes through a time in their life where they don’t want their picture taken everyday. [Britney] just never had that time where she could say, ‘I’m going through something right now and need to shut down.’ I also don’t have that, so it’s good to have that one person in my life who gets it.
I just think it’s never blaming you or making you feel like, ‘You’ve got all this going for you,’ it’s like she knows. Sometimes life just steps in the middle of your career the way life always does for anyone — it’s just ours is a little more 24/7.
Hopefully Miley will be there to support Britney’s new Vegas residency, as Ms. Spears has many doubters about her upcoming shows.
Based on what Miley said, it makes sense that she would find comfort in Britney, but they’re probably better off hanging around other people. Smarter people.
