"What I learned from Britney is that you don't have to change," Demi told MTV News this week. "Her family, we laughed several times, 'cause our families are so similar.
"Our mums are super close now," the singer revealed. "And our dads are really similar, she has this southern down-to-earth family.
"And she's still a southern down-to-earth girl," Demi explained. "I already knew that you don't have to change in this industry, but even at her level of success being the icon that she is, it was really refreshing."
