Once a Britney Spears fan, always a Britney Spears fan: That’s the message Selena Gomez sent to her Instagram followers after sharing a throwback video of herself passionately singing along to one of Britney’s classics.
“The hustle was real,” the star captioned the adorable, never-before-seen video.
The snippet shows an eight-year-old Gomez enthusiastically singing along to Britney’s 2000 song, “Don’t Go Knockin’ on My Door.”
In the video, Selena is rocking blue-tinted sunglasses as she stands in front of a dramatic backdrop of storm clouds and cyclones.
As little Selena, who’s now 28, sings “You better get off my back/Don’t go knockin’ on my door,” she rips off her sunglasses and stares down the camera.
Of course, Selenators delighted in the surprise post, with her makeup company Rare Beauty commenting with crying/laughing emojis and declaring, “Too real.”
Britney has yet to react to the video.
“Don’t Go Knockin’ on My Door” was released as part of Britney’s sophomore album Oops!… I Did It Again. The album was nominated for the 2001 Best Pop Vocal Album Grammy and went on to become one of the best-selling albums of all time, selling over 20 million copies.
