Britney Spears has joked the best way to mend a broken heart is to quickly find a new boyfriend to replace a former flame - and also insisted friends are incredibly important in getting through a break-up.
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***h' 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.''
