The combination of Justin Bieber, 22-year-old prince of pop music, and Kourtney Kardashian, 37-year-old Keeping Up With The Kardashians star and mom of three, shocked everyone when reports first spread that the two were hooking up in an on-again, off-again romantic relationship. But with no recent reports that Justin’s and Kourtney’s cougar love affair is still on, there’s a new woman who just may be able to replace Kardashian on Bieber’s girlfriend list: Britney Spears.
Spears confessed that she has what Hollywood Life terms a “little crush” on Bieber, sharing that she wants to “snog” (kiss) him during a game. The confession occurred when the 34-year-old was being interviewed on the Loose Women talk show October 4.
During a game of “Snog, Marry, or Avoid,” Britney’s options included Justin, Simon Cowell, 56, and Madonna, 58. At first Spears wanted to marry Bieber, but then she altered her response to “snog.” As to whom to wed and which celebrity to avoid, Britney decided to avoid everyone but Justin.
The pop princess has a famous history with both Madonna and Simon, having worked with Cowell as a judge on The X-Factor and infamously made out with Madonna at the 2003 VMAs. With her vote for Bieber now cast, however, is Spears hinting that she’s ready to develop a history with the “Sorry” singer?
Entertainment Tonight noted that in addition to choosing Justin to snog, Britney made it clear that she’s upbeat about being single and (another hint) likes younger guys.
“I’m not [dating]. I’m happily single right now,” she shared.
“I like younger guys….This guy came, who was like, my waiter, and I was like, ‘Oh my god! You’re adorable!’ and he was so cute.”
If Bieber does take the hint, Spears even provided a description of what she’s looking for on a date. Good news for the Biebs: No elaborate preparation needed or desired.
“I like spur of the moment things. I don’t like it to be so planned, like, ‘Let’s go on a date.’ I like just things to happen,” she clarified.
As for how Justin is reacting to the news that Britney wants to kiss him, one insider has the scoop, telling Hollywood Life that Bieber is on board with making Brit’s desire a mutual affair as for as that smooch is concerned.
Justin is reciprocating with regard to Spears’ crush, revealed the source, who added that the singer, 34, can look forward to getting a “big kiss” from the Biebs.
“Justin is ready to give Britney a big kiss the next time he sees her. He’s had a huge crush on her for the longest time.”
And it doesn’t stop there, with the insider also sharing that Bieber viewed Spears’ comments as “very flattering.” Although the two have busy schedules, Justin reportedly would love to have her attend one of his concerts.
“She’s always welcome to any of his shows,” added the insider.
If Bieber decides to choose Britney as his cougar love replacement for Kourtney Kardashian, Spears should be prepared for him to boast about their fling, based on what sources told Us Weekly about Justin’s and Kourtney’s hook-ups. In December 2015, one of those insiders revealed how the Biebs had bragged.
“Justin bragged to friends recently that he has been hooking up with Kourtney Kardashian.”
A second source confirmed that the hookups were “definitely happening… for some time.” The two were described as “extremely flirtatious,” texting each other constantly.
Britney can also look forward to a variety of fun, if she and Bieber decide to create a repeat of his romance with Kourtney. Kardashian attended Justin’s American Music Awards afterparty at Los Angeles hot spot Nice Guy, and they also enjoyed a date at the karaoke lounge Blind Dragon.
And yes, there are overnights, too. Kourtney was spotted at the Beverly Hills hotel the Montage, where Bieber stays, not exiting until 4 a.m.
As for how Bieber might handle the fact that Spears has children, he met Kardashian’s children but the two were careful to be discreet around the kids, according to People, which noted that multiple sources had confirmed that Justin and Kourtney were hooking up for months in an on-again, off-again relationship.
“He has met her kids, but they don’t hook up around the kids,” clarified one of the insiders. “It’s on nights when she has help and is able to go out.”
However, there’s just one problem in the scenario that portrays Britney and Justin hooking up: Spears just shared that she’s still crushing on Brad Pitt, reported Us Weekly.
“My first celebrity crush was Brad Pitt,” confessed Britney in a recent interview, referencing his split from Angelina Jolie when she added with a grin, “He’s single now!”
