Billie Eilish‘s stardom means that she’s now reached the point where all her childhood idols know who she is — and she’s having a hard time getting over that fact.

In the latest episode of her Apple Music show me & dad radio, Billie cues up Britney Spears‘ “…Baby One More Time,” and raves about how much she adores the chart-topping Princess of Pop.

“This is, like, an incredible song,” Billie raves. “Dude, this era of Britney was just, like, mind-blowing. Shout-out to Britney, too, because lately, she’s been — or since I was on Instagram, which is weeks ago now — she posted a couple of videos to my songs and I almost pooped my pants. So, I love you, Britney.”

Last week, Britney posted an Instagram video of herself dancing to “bury a friend.”  In June, she freestyled to “i love you,” and last year, she danced to “bad guy” with a fake snake.

It’s a full circle moment for Billie, who adds that she “used to dance in the living room to [‘…Baby One More Time’] on my tiny, little, horrible speaker.”

Last year, Billie wore an outfit with Britney’s face on it during a performance, and later told Extra, “Oh God, Britney is such an icon. I love her so much.”
