Britney Spears to Honor U.S. Marines With Free Concert Tickets

by at . Comments

It's hard to hold this against her.

About a month ago, some very clever U.S. Marines rocked out to "Hold It Against Me" and posted a video of themselves lip-syncing to the Britney Spears hit.

The star loved it, and decided to show her appreciation for the video and their service to our country by inviting the troops to her Femme Fatale tour.

"I was so moved by the 'Hold It Against Me' video that the U.S. Marines of HMLA-169 and VMM-266 REIN made in Afghanistan," Spears told E! Online.

"It warmed my heart to see our nation's soldiers enjoying themselves to my music. I am honored to have them as guests at my concert this summer."

Britney adds, "I hope they like my show as much as I loved theirs."

God bless America and pop songs stolen from cheesy pickup lines!

I miss it here so much! I love it so much! It makes me it's kinda like bittersweet coming here because I used to live here for two years. And when I come here, it's like, man, I wish I had my apartment here still.
