Britney Spears is not one to wallow in self-pity with a pint of Ben & Jerry’s. Earlier this year, the 32-year-old pop star announced she and Jason Trawick had ended their engagement. Not too much later, she found a new man, David Lucado, and recently declared that she was “in love.”

So even though she was joking around with her relationship advice to a fan, there’s probably some truth to it. What advice? Britney filled in as guest host for Ryan Seacrest’s American Top 40 and one fan asked for advice on how to get over a breakup.

"Just get another guy really quick!" Britney said with a laugh (via E! News). "I think if you get another boyfriend it's really easy to get over it." Take that, Dear Abby! "But for real,” she added, “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."

And when you return from the movies … find a new man!

Last month, Brit-Brit told Entertainment Tonight she met her new guy David through friends, and her dad even ran a background check on him. Apparently it came up clean, 'cause Brit is totally smitten. "He's just a simple man. I adore him. He's really funny and he's really passionate. I love the fact that anything he's involved in he's passionate about and it's contagious."

Aww. Hopefully things work out with this one. If not, she knows what to do.
