Britney Spears loves competition

Britney Spears says she loves the competition from Adele and Jessie J.
Britney turns 30 next month
Britney Spears is in reflective mood ahead of her 30th birthday saying she loves the fact she has great competition these days, especially from British female popstars.

In an interview with Stylist, the global pop sensation who became on overnight phenomenon with the release of her first pop tune Baby One More Time in 1999, said such musicians inspired her to do better.

"There are so many soulful singers, even the ones coming from London, like Adele and Jessie J, who are just amazing. It feels like a really cool time to be making music now," she told the news provider.

"In the beginning obviously I was very young and I didn't know the ins and outs of things; I was very instinctive in what I wanted to do, and I was very vocal with my input on things. I think as the years have gone by, and as I've evolved as an artist, I've put even more into my career, and after that amount of time you start to know exactly what you want."

Now that she's turning 30 she said she feels like she knows who she is now and that it "feels really nice".

Of the song Baby One More Time, Scott Plagenheof of Pitchfork, compared it to Nirvana's Smells Like Teen Spirit and Dr Dre's Nothing but a G thang, explaining that these songs "altered the landscape of pop culture so quickly".
