Britney Spears' Las Vegas show, Piece of Me, kicked off its two year run at Caesar's Palace this weekend. In the show, Britney sings some of her current singles and her older hits, including "Baby One More Time," the song that put her on the map.
"This generation is hungry for new sounds," Britney told USA Today about her new album, Britney Jean, and decision to play in Vegas, which used to be reserved for older stars. The 32-year-old added, "Bruno Mars is so different and fresh, and Justin Timberlake is, too. It's inspiring for me, and it makes people eager to listen to music, which helps everyone."

For the millions of fans who grew up on Britney and Justin the teen pop power couple, hearing about how he is "inspiring" to her is enough to cause heart flutters. Although both stars moved on and married other people (Justin's married to actress Jessica Biel, while Britney is divorced from Kevin Federline, the father of her two sons), there's still plenty of nostalgia about their '90s relationship. And the exes have stayed on good terms.
"I may not ever get over her. I really do still love that girl," Justin once told Rolling Stone magazine about Britney, who he first met while they were cast members on The Mickey Mouse Club alongside Christina Aguilera and Ryan Gosling.

In a 2011 interview in Playboy, Justin again defended his ex after a video online said her dancing wasn't as good as it had been years earlier. "People think they can say anything and it doesn't matter to people. I’d love to see the people who comment about Britney online say those things to her face, because they couldn't."
