Miley Cyrus Explains How Britney Spears Collaboration Happened : "I Had To Have Her!"

The 'Wrecking Ball' singer says it was "cool" to finally team-up with the iconic pop star on her new album.

Miley Cyrus has revealed how her newly confirmed team-up with Britney Spears came about, and says the two collaborated after Britney called her to say how much she loved 'We Can't Stop'.

The US singer says it was a dream come true to work with one of her pop idols, and says the "whole vibe" around the 'I Wanna Go' singer is incredible to be around.

"Well, we've been trying to work together and I felt like there had to be that right time, and after 'We Can't Stop' came out, she called and said how much she loved the song," Miley reveals on Alan Carr's Chatty Man in tonight's episode. "At first she heard the song and she didn't know it was me, and then she watched the video and just sort of fell in love with the video.

"I think it kind of reminded her of what she did when she was 20 and the feeling of kind of wanting to free yourself and represent so many girls, and so it was cool to be able to get her on the song," Miley explained. "I don't think there's any pop idol that I care about more than I care about Britney, because that was the first CD I ever bought.

"I feel like there's so much her and I connect on, and I had to have her, so it was cool," the US star added.

Miley also promised fans the pair's team up on the song 'SMS (Bangerz)' on her new album 'Bangerz' will not be a slow song.

"It's a fast one, it's got to be! It's Britney b***h!" Miley teased. "She's got one of those voices that as soon as it comes on everyone in the world knows it's Britney Spears, and that's what I wanted.

"There's just a whole vibe that's around Britney Spears and what she represented, it's like too crazy."
