Pop princess Britney Spears wants to patch up her differences with chart rivals Avril Lavigne, Gwen Stefani and Christina Aguilera.

Britney insists she's sick of battling her fellow female singing stars in the media, and has offered some compliments to her outspoken rivals.

She says, "I definitely don't regret things that I did in the past. The Avril Lavignes.. all of those girls have their game and what they do. But at the end of the day, we're all one. We're all the same.

"And, you know, whenever I see Avril Lavigne on TV or Gwen Stefani or Christina Aguilera, I take pieces from them. I don't copy their music, but I see emotions in their music that inspire me.

"Instead of girls being anti this or anti that, we should be around to support each other and to inspire each other at the end of the day."
