Sky Ferreira says Britney is her JAM when she wants to rock out to pop music, and recounts her experiene seeing the Dream Within A Dream tour.
In a recent interview with iHeart, the “Everything Is Embarrassing” singer says Britney is sort of dark, but admires she never changed for the industry or her peers:
POP MUSIC: “I loved any Britney. I also loved Spice Girls. I have to say, I think Britney Spears is my favorite pop star, if you’re going to go super, super pop star, besides Madonna. The thing about Britney Spears is there’s something a little weird and dark about her obviously — it’s genuinely dark — but I love how she’s never changed or never tried to catch up. I notice a lot of them get really weird and they try to catch up to the younger girls, or they’re threatened in some weird way about that. She embraces them; she always becomes friends with them and sings on their songs, but also she still f***ing dresses the same from like 2001. She’s still wearing her thongs outside her jeans. That’s why she’s so much cooler that everyone else.”
CONCERTS: “My favorite concert of all time I’ve ever been to was the Dream Within A Dream Britney Spears tour. My dad didn’t have any money or anything, and for my birthday, it was a big deal that I even was able to go to a concert. I wasn’t able to unless my grandmother was working on one or something. He took me and we had like top of the nosebleed section at Staples Center, and it was still the best night of my life because I could even see her from up there.
It was just so insane and she was so good. I don’t care if people were like, ‘She’s singing to track.’ Who doesn’t? That’s the thing. Back then, she was kind of untouchable. I never got to experience the Beatles or even Michael Jackson when Michael Jackson was at his peak; I never got to experience those things. I always saw them when they were older, like the Rolling Stones and stuff like that. Any band that I really love, I’d only saw them when they were over. I can say I saw Britney Spears. That’s like the one I saw at her peak.”
Sky also says she sang “Lucky” for Michael Jackson inside his recording studio at Neverland.
So basically she’s a Britney stan and will forever remain flawless.
