Britney Spears is giving seven special and inspirational women their flowers for always adding a “spark” to the pop star’s day.
On Wednesday (March 24), the singer posted pictures of her own little sister Jamie Lynn Spears; sisters Miley and Noah Cyrus; actresses Sharon Stone, Natalie Portman and Sarah Jessica Parker; and traveling yoga teacher and fitness instructor Tawny Janae along with a sweet note.
“These are the women that have truly inspired my life!!!!” Spears wrote on her socials. “Being away from family & my boyfriend while quarantining was really hard for me but the good thing about social media is we can connect in a different way!!! These cool ladies always add a spark to my day.”

The younger Cyrus couldn’t believe that her own childhood inspiration felt the same way about her. “MY JAW IS STILL ON THE FLOOR,” she commented underneath Spears’ Instagram post. “You’ve been so inspiring to me since i was a kid and being able to grow up with your music WAS A BLESSSSSSINGGGGG.”
On Noah’s IG Story, she added, “IM CRYING YOURE EVERYTHING. THIS JUST HAPPENED I LOVE U SO MUCH @britneyspears YOU inspire me YOU inspire so many men and women who LOVE YOU!”
While her sister hasn’t responded yet, Miley’s alter ego Hannah Montana — whose namesake show is celebrating its 15th anniversary on Wednesday — had a few words about not being included, commenting, “What am I? Chopped liver?!” The Plastic Hearts singer gave Spears a sweet shout-out during her 2021 Super Bowl “TikTok Tailgate” pre-game concert by shouting, “We love Britney!”
Following the Feb. 5 release of the Framing Britney Spears documentary, Parker and Stone joined countless other A-listers in the #FreeBritney movement. The Sex and the City actress tweeted, “#FreeBritney” and “#FramingBritneySpears” while the Total Recall actress commented on one of Spears’ IG posts, “You have a right to an attorney NOT provided by your family !! You can get your own attorney ! You deserve that.” (Spears’ attorney Samuel D. Ingham III in her ongoing conservatorship is court-appointed.)

Spears’ affinity for Portman extends beyond the big screen — but she wouldn’t mind for it to be part of a movie too. In a 2013 Twitter Q&A, Spears picked the Black Swan Oscar winner to play her in a biopic. Seven years later, Portman visited A Little Late With Lilly Singh to discuss how the two first linked up: They were understudies for the same role of Tina in the off-Broadway musical Ruthless! after both auditioning for the show when they were just 10 years old. After following their own successful career paths, the child stars crossed paths again at 18. “We both had the same first job. It was wild,” Portman reminisced.
