Well, let’s take the comparison even.

They both have the famous ab muscles and share a penchant for bold, almost nothing to the imagination overlatende podiumkledij. Spears borrowed Chers iconic ‘If I could turn back time ” outfit but left the leather jacket out. Road mystery. A permanent show in Vegas was for both stars a smart carrièrezet.
