Britney Spears caught in a Taylor Swift related lie but she's probably just confused.

On Monday morning, Australian radio hosts Kyle and Jackie on KIIS 106.5 asked Britney Spears who she'd rather sit next to on a plane, Katy Perry or Taylor Swift. BritBrit answered TayTay, because she said she'd never met her before. That's not entirely true, because Britney and Taylor were photographed together at the 2008 VMAs. But it may not be a lie, either, and it's definitely not "throwing shade," as some people are saying.

In case you're confused and need a little background, the Taylor or Katy question is a little more loaded because of Katy's often documented feud with Taylor.

But when the hosts gave Spears the two choices, she responded, "I don't know, that's hard. They're both so cool, I don't know." Goddamn media, always going after Britney Spears with those "gotcha!" questions.

Kyle and Jackie asked if Spears knew or had a friendship with either of the singers, and she answered: "'I briefly met Katy Perry at the Smurfs movie premiere and I met her there really quick. So maybe because I've met Katy Perry, I would say Taylor Swift because I've never met her before."

Two famous people posing together at an awards show does not a friendship make. Spears might not have met Taylor, she might just have been standing next to her. So get over it. This is Britney, people.
