Hilary Duff Says Britney Spears Is Her Pop Hero

The headline says it all.

While promoting her latest album, “Breathe In. Breathe Out.,” Hilary Duff answers several questions Billboard threw her way. She mentions Britney Spears, Miley Cyrus and her classic, no, iconic 2004 single “Come Clean.”

Straight from the Duff:

My favorite new-album track:
” ‘One in a Million.’ It’s a ‘f– you’ anthem about a guy who’s not treating you right.”

My biggest musical struggle:
“Finding my actual voice again. If you’re not using your voice, you lose confidence in it.”

My pop hero:
“Britney Spears. Growing up I was a huge fan — along with every other girl.”

My biggest mistake:
“A terrible song, ‘The Math,’ on my first album. I got forced into recording it. It’s just super cheesy.”

My most emotional new song:
” ‘Tattoo,’ co-written by Ed Sheeran. It’s a beautiful song about a relationship ending and what it leaves behind.”

My favorite fellow Disney alum:
“Miley Cyrus. I commend her for not giving a f— what people think.”

My reality check:
“I sang ‘Come Clean’ on a radio show, and it made me feel old. I recorded that when I was 16. It means something totally different to me now than it did back then.”

Comments will be back soon.
