Is Britney Spears Friends With Mariah Carey?
Lifestyle - News
Britney Spears and Mariah Carey, two of the world's top pop performers, marked the beginning and end of the 1990s. Spears credits Carey as "one of the key reasons [she] started singing," so it's clear that Carey has had a significant impact on Spears' life.
"Those were the two people that I was in awe over when I met [them]," Spears said of Carey (and Whitney Houston) when they met for the first time at the 1999 MTV Europe Music Awards. In 2018, Carey posted a throwback photo of that night, wearing stunning black dresses, captioning, "We need a new picture, Brit,"
During Spears' conservatorship, Carey reached out to her, telling an outlet, "I think everybody deserves on this planet to be free and what [the press] did to her, what I saw, was horrific. She went on to add, "So I reached out to her through a mutual friend because I wanted her to know: 'Guess what? You're not alone.'"
