And it seems that Britney Spears has taken inspiration from the 23-year-old Bajan singer as she gave one lucky male fan the dance of his life at the Los Angeles show of her Femme Fatale tour, last night.
In a black and nude lace basque and fishnet stockings, the 29-year-old wrapped her legs around the man and teased him with a feather boa.

During the risqué performance to her hit song Leather And Lace, she also gave the audience an eyeful of her derrière as she bent over several times.
In the middle of the song, Britney used a feathered boa to tickle the fan, before straddling his neck with her legs.
And judging by the smile on the man's face, he certainly lapped it up.
At the end of How I Roll, Britney told the audience: 'Sorry about the missing prop. My workers apparently don’t know how to put props on stage.
'Does anyone out there wanna help me find someone from the audience to help with the props?'

She then talked with a female dancer about different guys in the audience before picking the lucky man and bringing him up on stage where he sits on a chair upon a purple sparkly mini cooper.
After the sultry performance, Britney, the male fan and back-up dancers all drive off backstage.
Britney's lap dance was rather more tame than Rihanna's overtly sexualised performance in Miami earlier this month.
The singer also performed a raunchy dance, but on a female fan who was brought onto the stage during a tour stop at Miami's Mariner Arena.

Friends: Britney joined Rihanna on stage at the Billboard Music Awards last month
Two shirtless men brought the woman on stage and placed her on the edge of a round platform.
Rihanna then aggressively opened up one of her legs with her hand and then roughly pushed the other leg open with her knee.
She then shoved the woman back so she is laying flat down and jumped on top of her, straddling the woman between her legs and pinning her down.
The self titled 'rock star' then gyrated provocatively on the woman giving her a lap dance to her song Skin from her new album Loud.
After the explicit dance, Rihanna then laid next to the woman as the round stage revolved and went down taking the two of them below the platform as the crowd continued to go wild.
The video was captured by a fan in the crowd who posted it on YouTube.
A flurry of Britney lovers told MTV that they thought that the Britney of old had finally stepped out of the shadows.
Rachel Guillory told the popular TV channel: 'She interacted with the audience. She talked, she looked happy the whole time.'

She's back! Last night the pop star's fans all agreed that the energetic LA show was the big sign of her comeback
Chandler Cortina said, 'You can tell that she was having fun. She looked like she was enjoying herself and loving it.'
Duprel Nave also added. 'I've been a Britney fan since the beginning. She rocked it and I've been waiting for her to come back.'
'She gets so much criticism in the media, but she is badass. She's amazing.'
The Femme Fatale show is based around an action-adventure theme, beginning with a video of the pop star being chased by police and with the set changing throughout the show to reflect the different identities Britney takes on throughout proceedings.
In the past Britney has been criticised for miming through many of her live shows, however, the majority of the vocals in the show are sung - occasionally beefed up with recorded vocals.
There are also costume changes to match these identities — nine in all — including an angel outfit, a kimono, and a kinky leather motorcycle-gear ensemble, specifically for her “S&M” performances.

The outfits come courtesy of designer Zaldy Goco, who says: 'The real inspiration of course is Britney herself. We’re creating the show for her. But there’s a creative script that was done by the director, Jamie King, and it’s a whole thing about a femme fatale, and femme fatales throughout the ages … she’s sort of changing personas throughout the show.'
She added: 'Britney is a very sexy girl, so everything has to be sexy.'
Reviews of the show have been hugely positive, in particular the live singing.
Interaction: Britney has plenty of face time with her array of toned male back-up dancers
All smiles: Britney smiled throughout the whole performance, proving that the stage is really where the singer loves to be
After attending the Sacramento show last week, celebrity blogger Perez Hilton commented: 'I really enjoyed this show, and I'm being honest. As a stand alone piece, the Femme Fatale tour is thoroughly enjoyable.
'Britney sings live and I feel like this time the show and her are on the same level, Britney seems to have gotten her spark back.'
Rap star Nicki Minaj is also injecting some colour and energy into the show's - appearing as an opener for Britney at each of her U.S. tour dates.

She said: 'I want to go all out and make it over the top and theatrical. There will be costume changes and hair changes. Lots of sexy outfits and dancing. I don’t know how to do things normal and boring.'
Britney will perform 33 dates across the U.S. before taking the Femme Fatale show to Europe in September.
Over the next few months Britney will travel across the States before the tour comes Russia and Europe later in the year, before ending in Portugal in November.
