So supportive! Cardi B gave a sweet shout-out to Britney Spears amid her mental health battle and acknowledged that being a celebrity can be tough sometimes.

“I love you, and I totally understand,” the 26-year-old confessed in an interview about the “Toxic” crooner, 37, while speaking with Entertainment Tonight on Wednesday, May 8. “Not only will fame drive you insane, but it’s like, once you have money … everybody wants to take it from you.”

The brunette beauty continued to explain the pitfalls of being a public figure. “Sometimes, like, if you just have your own personal problems, when you’re a celebrity, everybody want to sue you, everybody want a piece of the money that you worked for,” she said. “It’s very frustrating and then you have, like, the whole world looking at you and no privacy. It’s crazy.” She added, “I can’t imagine if you do it for such a long time like her.”

The pop princess uploaded an Instagram video of herself working out to Cardi’s hit song “I Like It” on April 24, and of course, the mom of one freaked out. “I know, it’s so dope. I’m a very big Britney Spears fan,” she revealed. The rapper hopes that the two can collaborate “one day.”

Meanwhile, the Mississippi native checked out of the California facility after she completed her 30-day treatment on April 25. “She feels rejuvenated,” a source told Us Weekly at the time.

Two days prior, the blonde bombshell shared an update with her Instagram followers about her progress. “Hi, guys. Just checking in with all of you who are concerned about me,” she said in the video clip. “All is well. My family has been going through a lot of stress and anxiety lately, so I just needed time to deal, but don’t worry, I’ll be back very soon.”

Britney also wanted to set the record straight on some of the gossip that was going around about her. “I just wanted to say hi because things that are being said have just gotten out of control!!! Wow!!!” she continued in the caption. “There’s rumors, death threats to my family and my team and just so many things crazy things being said. I am trying to take a moment for myself, but everything that’s happening is just making it harder for me. Don’t believe everything you read and hear.”

She concluded the lengthy post by explaining that she is confident, no matter the circumstances. “You may not know this about me, but I am strong, and [I] stand up for what I want! Your love and dedication is amazing, but what I need right now is a little bit of privacy to deal with all the hard things that life is throwing my way,” she said. “If you could do that, I would be forever grateful. Love you.”

We’re rooting for you, girl!
