It’s Britney, bitch. And she’s back with a new album (Britney Jean) and a Las Vegas residency to close out 2013. Leave it to the singer to make us work all year just to hear some new music. But that’s okay, because there’s so much Britney to enjoy. After 15 years in the music business, Spears has left us with a number of memories and a few not-so-easy-to-forget moments. We thought this would be a great time to break down the singer’s career from A to Z.
A: Austin Powers In Goldmember
Never forget the time that Spears made a brief but funny cameo appearance in Mike Myers spy spoof film series. Austin Powers’ sexual prowess was too much for Spears to handle, the fembot version of herself exploded with desire.
B: “…Baby One More Time”
Fifteen years ago in September, Spears introduced herself to the world with one purr of a song, “…Baby One More Time.” Spears quickly set herself a part from the rest of the pack as pop’s first female force sense Madonna, Tiffany or Debbie Gibson. The song became a massive hit propelled by her Catholic School girl music video and the explosion of Total Request Live.
Sadly, this is not in reference to the hit record by Mariah Carey and Bone Thugs N Harmony. Instead, Crossroads was the film that featured Spears acting debut. The movie co-starred relative unknowns, Taryn Manning (Orange Is The New Black) and Zoe Saldana (Avatar),
If there’s one thing Spears shouldn’t do is drive. Her history of driving includes several accidents and a child in the front seat:
- 2008: Involved in a minor traffic accident – no injuries, no charges.
- 2007: Charged with a misdemeanor hit-and-run while driving without a valid license.
- 2007: Ran over a paparazzo.
- 2007: Ran over the foot of a female sheriff’s deputy.
- 2007: Ran a red light with her sons in the car.
- 2006: Part of a stop-and-go traffic accident.
E: Electric Clippers
The haircut heard around the world was probably one of the most standout moments for the singer. It also officially marked her decent into media through the eyes of the media. In February of 2007, Spears shaved her head with electric clippers at a hair salon. She quickly followed up the news of her new look by attacking a van with an umbrella giving the Internet “angry Britney.” The months following, she was in and out treatment centers, loss custody of her children and eventually was placed under a conservatorship.
