The legendary Miss Britney Spears turned 33 today. Does anyone else feel old?
Some of you may not remember Britney’s career the way I so vividly do, but I truly appreciate what she has contributed to the music industry. Britney has entertained us for more than a decade. Every song she’s released, every performance, concert and everything in between has contributed to her legacy. At 33, she’s still making us dance.
So for the haters who still think of Britney as the girl who lost her mind in 2007 (that’s sooooo 7 years ago, get over it!) here are some moments to remind you that Britney was, and still is, on top of the world:
She has performed with other LEGENDARY artists:
1. Michael Jackson, 2001
2. Aerosmith, Super Bowl Halftime show, 2001
3. Madonna, 2003
4. Speaking of the Super Bowl, remember her Pepsi ads?
5. She (provocatively) graced the cover of Rolling Stone at the age of 17.
6. She had her own doll.
7. Her current residency isn’t the first time she’s dominated the Las Vegas strip. HBO aired her Dream Within a Dream tour concert Live from MGM.
8. And Showtime aired her Onyx Hotel Tour live from Miami, which I attended!
9. Then she got her own special on ABC (she slayed!). Proof:
10. 2000 VMAs – ONLY 18 YEARS OLD
11. 2001 VMAS – ONLY 19 YEARS OLD!!
12. She starred in a movie – Crossroads.
13. Her Got Milk poster graced the walls of public schools nationwide, including my own.
14. She can dance like no other. 0:53:
15. She can dress like this and we still love her.
16. She broke Justin Timberlake’s heart (not cool, but how many other people can say they did that?) How did we not see it coming – look at that smirk!
She’s funny – she’s made appearances on
17. How I Met Your Mother
19. All That
20. This hilarious stunt with Ellen is legendary in itself:
21. She had a party in the middle of the Las Vegas desert with hundreds of Britney look-a-likes.
22. November 5, 2014 was declared Britney Day.
23. She has her own lingerie line.
24. And perfumes. I’ve worn Curious since it was released.
25. Skechers made her the face of their little 4-wheelers. I owned a pair.
26. Her body then.
27. Her body now.
28. She’s being paid $30 million to perform during her best-selling, Las Vegas residency show, Piece of Me. I will be there on New Year’s Eve!
29. She is the youngest person ever to have a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, at 21.
30. She created an anthem to inspire us all with “Work Bitch” 😉
31. She even has other pop stars imitating one of her worst fashion choices, what does that tell you?!
32. Feel the intensity! Britney has chemistry with the camera even at 17 years old. It’s no wonder we fell in love with her after …Baby One More Time.
33. She is nicknamed “Godney.” I think that illustrates her legendary status. Bow down to the queen!
