Gaga, who was born Stefani Germanotta, has cited Britney as one of her musical influences and originally wrote her hit 2010 song Telephone for Spears.

The Golden Globe winner wrote another song called Quicksand for Britney, which the singer recorded for her Circus album. 

Though the song did not make the main track listing on the 2009 album, it can be found on some deluxe editions released in Europe.

Gaga talked about the collaboration in a 2009 interview with Fab (via Digital Spy), saying, ‘It was awesome seeing the song change when she put her touches on it. I’m just really grateful that she loves the music and she’s so supportive of me.

‘She’s a fan of my stuff and to write a song that she loves and to know she loves me as an artist, you can’t ask for anything better than that.’

Gaga went on to say, ‘Britney’s a real class act in terms of the way she handles herself in the media and embraces new artists. She’s always really kind, I’ve always admired that about her. 

‘She’s gonna kick everybody’s ass. She’s awesome, as far as I’m concerned Britney never left.’      

Gaga was among the many celebrities and fans to share their support for Britney after her conservatorship ended on Friday afternoon. 

Britney’s fiance Sam Asghari congratulated his bride-to-be with a sweet Instagram post.      

‘History was made today. Britney is Free! ❤️’ the Hot Suit star, 27, captioned a pink square with the word ‘Freedom’ in all caps, just minutes after the announcement.

For nearly 14 years, Spears has not been in control of her life or $60 million fortune. 

‘The court finds that the conservatorship of the person and estate of Britney Jean Spears is no longer required,’ Judge Brenda Penny told a LA Superior court hearing – where Britney did not appear.

‘Therefore, as of today, the conservatorship is hereby terminated.’ 

Judge Penny’s decision to dissolve the much-maligned legal arrangement comes two months after she fired the star’s dad, Jamie Spears, as the $16,000-a-month conservatorship boss who pulled the strings on his daughter’s career and welfare.

During Friday’s 30-minute hearing, Britney’s attorney, Mathew Rosengart told Judge Penny that the singer had repeatedly testified and declared in court filings that she ‘wants her life back and she wants this conservatorship to end.’

And Rosengart also pointed out that even her father Jamie had said in court documents that he ‘believes the conservatorship should be terminated without reservation or exception.’

Rosengart added: ‘The conservatorship should end now. There is no reason for another second of delay.’

Rosengart told the court that, earlier on Friday, temporary conservator Zabel had filed a ‘termination care plan’ under seal with the court, detailing how over the next few weeks he will tie up the remaining administrative ends of the conservatorship and transfer all assets to Britney’s trust.

Britney’s conservatorship was split into two parts – the estate and the person. Zabel is winding up the estate part of the conservatorship.

Meanwhile the conservator of her person – long-time caregiver Jodi Montgomery – was also in complete agreement with the order to dissolve the conservatorship.

‘There is no reason why Britney can’t have a happy, fulfilling life after termination of this conservatorship,’ Montgomery’s attorney, Laurianne Wright told the court.

Now, Jamie could face a major civil lawsuit – or even criminal charges – after Rosengart, accused him of ‘mismanaging’ her finances, profiting from the conservatorship and illegally monitoring and electronically spying on her, even in her bedroom.

Taking back the reins of her own future will be immediate – though it will take a few weeks for Zabel to wind up the conservatorship and transfer its assets to Britney’s trust that she will control herself.

Friday’s court ruling means that for the first time since 2008, the singer – who turns 40 next month – can make her own decisions on how she wants live her life.

She can live where she wants, buy what she wants, hire and fire whom she wants, perform where and when she wants, and have a baby with her fiancé, Sam Asghari, as she has said she wants.

It’s been more than a year since Britney started begging the court to end her father’s control and for the conservatorship – which she called ‘abusive’ – to be terminated altogether.

And when Judge Penny suspended Jamie as conservator in September, Rosengart called it ‘a monumental win for Britney and for justice.’

The singer had told the court that she was ‘afraid ‘ of her dad and declared that she would not perform again until he was no longer in charge of the conservatorship he had strict supervision over since her much-publicized breakdown in 2008.

One of her most heart-wrenching revelations came during a tearful phone appearance at Judge Penny’s court last June when she said that she wanted to have a baby with her fiancé, but the conservatorship wouldn’t allow her to remove her IUD birth control.

‘I feel ganged up on and bullied and alone,’ Britney told the court during that emotional statement. ‘I just want my life back.’

She also told the judge that she felt ‘enslaved’ by her dad, whom she, added, ‘should be in jail.’
