A new man helps a broken heart says Britney Spears

2013-12-10 08:01

Los Angeles - Britney Spears says the best way to "get over" an ex-boyfriend is to quickly find a new man.

The singer - who split up with Jason Trawick in January after around three years together - is now dating David Lucado and revealed her tips for mending a broken heart.

Britney, filling in for Ryan Seacrest as guest host of radio's 'American Top 40' show, joked: "Just get another guy really quick! I think if you get another boyfriend it's really easy to get over it."

While her initial reply to a fan's question was slightly tongue-in-cheek, the Work B**ch hitmaker did add that a group of friends there for support was also a good idea.

She said: "But for real, I think you need a lot of friends around you and you need to go to the movies and have dinner dates with your girlfriends. Yeah, I think that's important."

Britney previously revealed she did move on from Jason quickly, and it helped inspired her new album Britney Jean.

She recently explained: "It was very therapeutic, yeah. I got over it really fast. Basically, what [the tracks are] talking about, your love is gone [but] you'll never forget it.

"The time goes by and time heals, and all those wonderful beautiful breakup things that you say."
