Britney Spears is giving Mariah Carey credit for her music career while wishing her a happy 50th birthday and sharing a jaw-dropping throwback of the powerhouse duo. The 38-year-old pop princess bowed down to Mimi in a sweet tribute on her Instagram by dedicating a whole post to the “Always Be My Baby” songbird. Britney Spears took to social media on Friday, sending well wishes to the five-time Grammy winner as she joins her favorite “I don’t know her” frienemy Jennifer Lopez turning the big 5-0.
Posting a snap from years ago of the duo, Britney Spears uploaded the sizzling photo and paired it with a sweet message. “Happy Birthday @MariahCarey !!!!! You are one of the main reasons I started singing ….,” the “I’m a Slave 4 U” singer wrote. In the gorgeous throwback, the singers are seen smiling alongside each other with CAA agent Cade Hudson smacked right in the middle. Mariah Carey looks stunning, wearing a tight black dress with a deep plunging neckline. Sporting her blonde hair down and free, Britney Spears matched the queen wearing a black dress too.
Complimenting Mariah Carey on her music, specifically her 6th studio album “Butterfly,” Britney Spears added that the 1997 record “never gets old even after 20+ years.” Saying that “Butterfly” is “simply a classic,” the pop star also said she’d be “listening to it today as I work out in the gym!!!!!” Ending her loving message, the “Toxic” singer stated, “Have a wonderful birthday ??!!!!!! God bless.” This post is a breath of fresh air, especially considering what some are calling “bizarre” Instagram behavior from Britney Spears.
The “Oops!… I Did It Again” singer has been doing just that on Instagram by recycling the same few photos with the exact same captions on numerous occasions recently sparking mental health concerns amongst her fans. Most recently, she also stated she was faster than Usain Bolt, the fastest human alive. While some seem worried about the pop star, others are turning her repeat posts into positives, labeling Britney Spears things like the “Queen of Déjà Vu.” To fans delight, the singer recently posted a hilarious video showing herself totally freak out after someone came up behind her while she was on a peaceful hike. In the funny clip, Britney Spears is seen minding her own business until the subtle scare. Her reaction was absolutely priceless and definitely a must-see!
