AceShowbiz - Maggie Rogers has had "so many special moments" in life soundtracked by Britney Spears. The 28-year-old singer namechecked pop megastar Britney, who regained control of her multimillion-dollar fortune and various aspects of her life when a conservatorship governed by her family was terminated in 2021, on her new single "Be Cool" and explained that she is a "big pop music nerd" and wants the record to serve as a "period of time."
"My first CD was a dual purchase, 'Baby One More Time' and the 'Harry Potter' orchestral soundtrack, which is maybe all you need to know about me," she said. "Big pop music nerd over here! When I'm making a record, I always think about it as a record of a period of time, but in the same way that I'm tracking my internal landscape, I'm also a person in the world."
"So, that Britney reference happened of course at the same time when all that [conservatorship] stuff was happening, because it's been a part of what the world looked like in the last couple of years," she continued.
On the song, Maggie croons, "We could listen to Britney, overload the speakers." And the "Alaska" hitmaker went on to explain that the "Toxic" legend, 40, is an inspiration to her because she is always a "powerful" and authentic" version of herself.
"Britney, to me, she's so powerfully and authentically herself," Maggie told PEOPLE. "In the song, the idea of listening to Britney, in my mind, is a version of embracing the fullest you. I feel so empowered and have had so many special moments in my life soundtracked by Britney Spears."
