Singer Selena Gomez is planning a nightly tribute to Britney Spears on her upcoming tour.
The Disney star admits she’s nervous about paying homage to her heroine, but thinks more young stars should acknowledge Spears.

She tells MTV News, “We are working on a Britney tribute, which I’m so stoked about, ’cause I love Britney. I was like, ‘I have to do it.’ I wanna do a mash-up of all her songs and just go for it.

“We’re gonna do her hits – Baby One More Time, and then I think we’re going to try to incorporate Toxic and that phase. And then we might do some of her recent, new stuff.”

Though Gomez is excited about covering the the pop star’s songs, she won’t be trying to imitate any of her famous dance moves.

She continues, “I’m not going to even touch Britney! She’s so good. I wouldn’t want to butcher it. I’m just going to pay tribute to her! I’m gonna say she’s awesome.”

Gomez recently revealed that Spears was the first act she saw perform live – and that concert inspired her to work on her own pop career: “We were in the nosebleeds (budget seats high above the stage) with my cousin. I got the T-shirt and glow stick. and I just remember it being the highlight of my life! I felt like I was on cloud nine.”
