Britney Spears & Mariah Carey: Friendship History

Excuse my tears, I'm having "Trouble" handling my "Emotions." 

Britney Spears is of course my ultimate pop queen, but Mariah Carey is the #1 vocal powerhouse of all-time. They share many fans, and their mutual appreciation of one another's work is a pop culture dream come true.

It's been a while, but the two iconic divas met again at mutual friend Cade Hudson's dinner party.Who is Cade Hudson? Have Brit-Brit and Mimi met before? Does Mariah "know her"? Relax, dahhhlings, I have all the tea...

Britney Spears & Mariah Carey:

A Brief History of Their Iconic Friendship

Chapter I: Not-So-Humble Beginnings 

Teenage Britney covered Mariah's iconic hit "Open Arms" on her ...Baby One More Time Tour:

Britney & Mariah have met before, but that was so long ago, VHS tapes were still sold:

Ahh, to be a fly on the wall, dahhhhling!

Early 2000s Britney also introduced Mariah for a Z100 live performance:

Chapter II: Topless Painting 

“I love Mariah Carey. Still to this day,” the 33-year-old “Slave 4 U” singer said. “I was painting in my room. I have an art room, and I just paint on the walls and do all this kind of crazy stuff. I bought her new greatest hits, and her new Infinity record yesterday, and I was just in there with my top off, just like painting and doing all this artsy fartsy stuff.”

Continuing to gush over the 45-year-old singer, Spears added, “I love her. I just love her voice.”

Dan had to ask about Spears’ topless painting sessions, of which she explained, “In my art room, that’s my place. It’s the best.”

The radio hosts confessed that Spears was painting quite the picture. “That’s a good way to leave you guys, too,” she quipped. “You know, it’s too much information — I apologize!”

Chapter III: Mariah Loves Britney

Even though everyone in the world should be one, it's cool to know Mariah Carey is a Britney Spears fan. 

Mariah Carey: ‘I love Britney Spears. Yeah. Yeah.’

Andy Cohen: ‘[Britney] said recently she likes to paint in the nude listening to Mariah. Did you see that?’

Mariah Carey: ‘(Laughs) I did not see that.’

"You never know who you’re going to meet at dinner parties!!" Britney declared in her Instagram caption. "Great night! So much fun, thank you Cade!"

Britney also shared a pic of the fancy main course. BRB - drooling!

It's Cade, bitch.

Who is the "Cade" Britney thanks in her caption? I did a little Google searching and found out Ms. Spears has been friends with a guy named Cade Hudson since at least the early 2010s. My friends at Absolute-Britney have a forum called Universe, where fans have discussed the friendship.

Cade is an agent at CAA, the top Hollywood talent agency. TMZ called Mr. Hudson "Hollywood's Most Popular Agent." It's reported his famous clients include Sean Penn, Gwenyth Paltrow, Kate Hudson, Nicole Richie, Joe Jonas, Paris Hilton, Bella Thorne, and Emma Roberts

Cade must be pretty good at that, because,  I mean, you have to be successful to have close friends like Britney Spears and Mariah Carey... the two top selling female solo artists since the 90s. Britney even referred to him as her "best friend" onstage in Vegas! #goals 

Britney has brought Cade on stage at both the "Femme Fatale Tour" and "Britney: Piece of Me."

In any event, I'm so happy Spears and Carey reunited, and I hope they meet again one sweet day. Maybe a double date with Sam & Tanaka?
