Bebe Rexha Gushes Over Meeting ‘Idol’ Britney Spears at the VMAs

Bebe Rexha Gushes Over Meeting 'Idol' Britney Spears at the VMAs

Even pop stars can fangirl every now and then.

Bebe Rexha celebrated a huge career highlight during her first trip to the MTV Video Music Awards on Sunday when Britney Spears covered her part in the infectious single “Me, Myself & I” with two social media posts.

First, the 26-year-old singer-songwriter tweeted the “flushed” emoji of a blushing, wide-eyed face. Later, she shared an Instagram photo of herself with the 34-year-old diva backstage at Madison Square Garden.

“Amazing moment hearing one of my idols perform ‘MM&I’ tonight,” Rexha wrote in the caption.

Likewise, Rexha made an impression on Spears, who also tweeted about their encounter.

“It was so great meeting you last night, @BebeRexha!” she wrote. “Thank you for letting me sing your amazing song with @G_Eazy!”

Spears performed the hit alongside 27-year-old rapper G-Eazy, who clearly enjoyed the chemistry they shared on stage. Their sultry performance, which included a run through of Spears’ Glory hit, “Make Me…,” was filled with grinding and nearly got too hot for TV when Spears went in for a full-on crotch grab.

While she’s certainly no prude, even Spears had a line, and she drew it when G-Eazy seemingly went in for a kiss only to be rejected.
