Britney Spears has offered to duet with Selena Gomez after hearing the Spring Breakers star’s version of her hit Baby One More Time.

The pop princess took to her Twitter page after viewing a YouTube video showing Selena covering the song Baby One More Time.

Selena and her Spring Breakers co-stars Ashley Benson and Rachel Korine sung the song during a SXSW press conference to promote the film.

“Awww @Selenagomez can duet with me anytime,” tweeted Britney while posting a link to the YouTube clip. “PS- I heard @springbreakers is AAA-MAZING! Can’t wait to see it!”

The Mirror reports that the girls sang along to a karaoke version of the tune on a big screen at the Texas press conference in response to a question asking if they were lip-syncing to another Britney number in the film.

Vanessa Hudgens and James Franco also co-star in the movie about a group of college girls who get into hot water after going on a crime spree to fund their spring break.

The adult drama is a deliberate departure for Selena, who acknowledges she has a young fan base.

"I was getting kind of repetitive in terms of the roles I was picking, and I really wanted to do something that was completely different," she recently told Interview magazine.

"I want to be taking myself seriously as an actress, and this was definitely a stretch.

"I mean, I'd never smoked a cigarette before in my entire life. It was really funny - they had to show me how to do it."
