Paris Hilton has reacted to recent collaboration rumors between Britney Spears and Sir Elton John.

The socialite, 41, spoke with Paul Barewijk during his show, Paul Voor Je Neus, and said of the collaboration: 'It's going to be iconic. I just heard it a couple of days ago in Ibiza, and it's... it's insane,' the Hilton heiress stated.

However, it appears the reality TV star misspoke during the interview, as ET reported that she she simply 'heard it's going to be amazing' and has not heard the actual song.

Apparently Hilton was 'running to the stage and was about to perform' which caused her to make the incorrect statement.  

The blonde beauty looked fantastic as ever during the interview, sporting her blonde locks in a halfway up ponytail, and shielded her eyes with a pair of oversized black shades. 

Paris, who attended Britney's star-studded wedding to Sam Asghari, 28, in June, appeared thrilled for her friend, before her own husband Carter Reum pulled her away from the interview.

It appears that Spears is ready to regain her throne as a pop superstar with the new collaboration. 

The 40-year-old singer–songwriter has worked alongside the 75-year-old piano man to record a new duet version of his immortal tune Tiny Dancer, Page Six reported on Monday.

Britney joined up with the English singer and composer in Beverly Hills last week to record the track, which first appeared on his 1971 album Madman Across The Water.

Fans won't have to wait long to hear Britney on record again, as sources told the publication that the new version of Tiny Dancer is expected to be released in August by Universal music.

Elton appears to be the one who came up with the idea of the collaboration, but it seems to be an ideal soft launch for Britney to reinvigorate her musical career after staying silent in the final years of her now-defunct conservatorship. 

'This was Elton’s idea, and Britney is a huge fan. They have recorded a remix of Tiny Dancer as a full duet — and it is incredible,' a music industry insider told the outlet.

'Britney was in the studio in Beverly Hills last week with Elton for the super-secret recording session overseen by uber-producer Andrew Watt,' they added.

According to TMZ, Britney and Elton were recording the song on Tuesday and Wednesday of last week, and the track is now being mixed.

Watt has worked with several high-profile pop and rock acts — including Miley Cyrus, Justin Bieber, Camilla Cabello and Pearl Jam — and he has collaborated multiple times with Elton, which suggests he would be an ideal pick for the two artists. 

According to the source, Britney and Elton's new single is already a hit with record company executives.

'They’ve already played it for people at their record label, and everybody is freaking out. It is so good,' they gushed. 'They are saying this is going to be the song of the summer.

'Britney is officially back,' they added. 'She’s back to work, and she’s super excited.'

The record label appears to be highly invested in getting Britney back into the studio, as the source claimed that she got 'a record-breaking deal' to entice her to collaborate with Elton.

The songstress may have hinted that she would restart her career by examining music from the past when she shared a darker, slowed-down version of her 1998 classic …Baby One More Time on Instagram earlier this month. 

'I haven’t shared my voice in an extremely long time … maybe too long,' she wrote at the time, before revealing that she had wanted to release the updated version of the hit single, but her conservatorship allegedly put the kibosh on the plans.

Although the performer has collaborated with multiple lyricists throughout the years, Taupin is one of his oldest collaborators and helped pen the vast majority of his classic songs going back to the late 1960s.

Britney's fans should be excited to hear her, as she hasn't released a single since Slumber Party in 2016.

Incidentally, it was in October of that year that the pop star met her now-husband Sam Asghari, as he starred in her music video for the single.
