Miley Cyrus has at least one pop princess in her corner.
The 20-year-old singer constant twerking and over-the-top performance at the VMAs last month caused a lot of controversy, but Britney Spears has been there, done that (remember that Madonna lip-lock in 2003?)—and she thinks Miley's doing just fine.
In fact, Spears thinks the young pop star is doing more than fine...she's "on fire!"
"I remember that age when I was just transferring into my career and doing more controversial things and the energy that you feel, all this chaos going on, and she is on fire right now, she's just a ball full of energy," Brit Brit told Extra's .
This isn't the first time Spears has come to Cyrus' defense.
During a Sept. 17 Good Morning America interview, Britney commented on the "We Can't Stop" singer's racy new image and said, "I think anytime you do a performance that is that memorable, you're going to have criticism. I think she's doing her thing. She's being herself, so I give props to her."
Miley actually went to Spears for some guidance before hitting the MTV stage, and their meeting was recorded for Cyrus' upcoming documentary Miley: The Movement.
"You're always gonna make people talk," Cyrus told Britney. "You might as well make them talk for like two weeks rather than two seconds."
You've accomplished that and more, Miley.
