It was Britney Spears’ 35th Birthday yesterday and what better way to celebrate than to countdown her most memorable moments!
5. The all-time favourite Toxic outfit
In her 2003 release of ‘Toxic‘, Britney graced our screens with a dazzling almost nude bodysuit complete with jewels. Not to mention her totally amazing video clip which scored her a Grammy award for best dance recording in 2005.
4. Her 2001 MTV performance with a Python!
Britney Spears is one for leaving a lasting impression but when it comes to MTV VMA performances, she holds the coveted spot for always seeming to amaze us. In 2001 she debuted her single ‘Slave 4 u’ carrying a yellow python over her shoulders.
3. On-screen kiss with Madonna
Millions of people sat in silence as Britney stole the MTV VMA’s once again. Performing ‘Like a Virgin’ on stage with Christina Aguilera and Madonna, she emerged from a giant wedding cake and literally stopped time when she locked lips with Madonna. The camera then turned over to ex-boyfriend Justin Timberlake looking as uncomfortable as ever.
2. The ’07 Meltdown
Who could forget 2007? In the wake of her divorce and custody battle of her two children, the year was reserved for Britney’s meltdown which saw her shave her head and go in and our of rehab.
- At the number 1 spot is our Pop Princess’ first song ‘Baby one more Time.
At the age of 16, Britney released her first song and she was pretty proud of it too. She told Billboard that she knew the song would be a hit. “When I started working with Max Martin in Sweden, he played the demo for ‘Baby One More Time’ for me, and I knew from the start it was one of those songs you want to hear again and again. It just felt really right.”
