Back then Swift was a rising star, and she looked nothing like she does today.

By then, Taylor Swift had released “Tim McGraw,” “Tearsdrops on My Guitar,” and “Love Story.” But the pop star apparently still wasn’t famous enough to make an impression on Brit Brit, as she claims to never have met Swift.
When an Australian radio station asked Spears who she would rather sit next to on a 24 hour flight — Katy Perry or Taylor Swift — she couldn’t decide at first. “I don’t know! I don’t know, that’s hard. They’re both so cool, I don’t know.” She ultimately ended up making her decision based on who she hadn’t met. Or who she didn’t remember meeting…
“I’ve briefly met Katy Perry at the Smurfs movie premiere. Maybe because I’ve met Katy Perry I would say Taylor Swift, because I’ve never met her before.”
