Britney Sighting in NYC?

Sure, they're vividly remembered for their live spit swap, but how is it possible to confuse music icon Madonna with popwreck Britney Spears?

TMZ spotted Madge as she walked out of a workout yesterday in New York, with a few spectators heard shouting "Britney! Britney!" toward the Material Mom. If Madonna were leaving a Taco Bell, perhaps it'd but understandable, but when was the last time you saw Britney at a gym in Manhattan?

Madge also joked that it must be a slow news day to be covering her, clearly oblivious to the $120 million contract she's about to ink with Live Nation.
