Britney Spears is rather happy that Brad Pitt is single because he was her first celebrity crush.

The singer made the confession during recent pre-taped appearance on Australia’s Today Show, when she was quizzed about her childhood crushes as part of its Question Roulette segment.

It was then when she admitted she had the hots for the actor before cheekily saying, “He’s single now!”

Britney has previously gushed about the actor but has recently insisted she is “really happy” being single and is not looking for love at the moment.
