Playing Britney Spears Does Not Remember Meeting Taylor Swift on Two Different Occasions

Britney Spears must not have been much of a Taylor Swift fan when she met the "Shake It Off" singer.

During Monday's interview on the Kyle and Jackie O radio show, the 34-year-old pop princess was asked, "Who would you rather sit next to on a 24-hour flight to Sydney:  Taylor Swift or Katy Perry?"

"I don't know. That's hard," Spears answered. "They're both so cool. I don't know."

"Do you know or do you have a friendship with either [of them]?" the Australian radio DJs inquired. "I briefly met Katy Perry at the Smurfs movie premiere [in 2013] and I met her there really quick," Spears replied.

The singer, however, couldn't recall meeting Swift. "So maybe because I've met Katy Perry, I would say Taylor Swift because I've never met her before," she answered.

Spears may not remember, but she's actually met the 26-year-old singer twice. It turns out the two not only posed for a photo at the 2008 MTV Video Music Awards, but the Twitterverse, upon hearing Spears' claim of never having crossed paths with Swift, also managed to dig up a pic reportedly taken in 2003 of the ladies.

Funny enough, Ed O'Neill revealed in June that he did not recognize Spears when they first met. "I was flying alone to Hawaii. I was waiting for my flight to board," the Modern Family star recalled on The Ellen DeGeneres Show. "They told me the flight was boarding and I picked up -- that’s a little Modern Family hat. I saw a woman approaching me so I just flopped it on, you know, I was leaving. She came up and said, 'Oh, Mr. O'Neill, I love Modern Family, and you're my favorite on the show.' And I was like, 'Well, I'm here, I'm the only one here.'"

"So the next day my manager texts me and goes, 'What is this? 53,000 likes. It's Britney Spears,'" he exclaimed. "I mean, look at the look on my face -- do I look like I'm sitting with Britney Spears?"
