Britney Spears doesn’t remember meeting Taylor Swift, she revealed in a new interview on Monday.

When asked on Australian KIIS radio show Kyle & Jackie, “Who would you rather sit next to on a 24-hour flight to Sydney: Taylor Swift or Katy Perry?” Spears responded, “I don’t know, it’s hard. They’re both so cool. I don’t know.” She continued: “Maybe because I’ve met Katy Perry, I would say Taylor Swift, because I’ve never met her before.”

But — sorry Swift — Spears did meet the 1989 star at the 2008 VMAs, and the two were photographed together:

According to TMZ, they also met “another time when Taylor was just getting started in the biz.” Perhaps this is a Mariah Carey “I don’t know her” situation, or maybe it was an honest mistake.
