A thermos was all it took to bring Lady Gaga and Britney Spears together on Twitter yesterday (April 18.)

The ladies — last sceen on stage at the 2011 MTV VMAs (with Gaga’s male alter ego the Ralph Macchio lookalike known as Jo Calderone) – communicated via 140 characters. Gaga told her 23 million followers that she was packing for her upcoming Born This Way Ball world tour and an essential item she needed to bring was her Britney Spears thermos.

Gaga tweeted: “ah yes! May also need to pack my Britney thermos (yes I have one) “@SkeletalHooker: Dont forget your mobile fog machine. Just incase y’know.”

She then posted a photo of the actual thermos, a sex kitten shot of Brit, with a halo of golden locks and a come hither stare.

Below is Gaga’s tweet of the thermos. She also included huge words of praise for Brit, saying she was as sweet as she imagined the singer to be.

Brit saw the tweets and replied: “Wonder what @LadyGaga keeps in that thermos??? Cant WAIT to see you on tour. MISS YOU!!!” Aw, how cute, right?

Little monsters and Britaholics no doubt loved this exchange between the pop stars. Let’s hope they keep tweeting and chatting and plant the seeds of a collab.
