Last month, Britney Spears announced on Twitter that she had split from her long-term boyfriend David Lucado – and now it seems she’ll be taking to social media to replace him.
Appearing on the Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon, the Work Bitch singer was shown a Tinder profile Fallon had created for her. Spears joked that she was “thrilled” at being added to the dating app. “Swipe right, that means good”, explained Fallon.
Spears is not the first celebrity connected to Tinder. Ed Sheeran was even approached by the site to become a “verified” user. The singer told Total Access that he rejected the invitation.
“It just sounds quite creepy doing that,” he said. You’re just using your celebrity status to hook up with chicks.”
Other stars have admitted to setting up incognito Tinder profiles, including: Lily Allen, Katy Perry and Lindsay Lohan – who awkwardly got matched with her own brother.
