23 Things That Happened Since Oops!… I Did It Again Debuted That Will Make You Feel Ancient

Oops, you just realized how freaking old you are.

Queen Britney Spears’ sophomore album Oops!… I Did It Again came out 15 years ago today, I’ll repeat: 15. And although it feels like just yesterday that Brit rocked our worlds with killer dance moves in her red leather jumpsuit, we’re here to assure you that it definitely was not. (“Lucky” and “Stronger” are also both from this album and don’t you dare forget it.) Here’s everything that happened between May 3, 2000 and today, and remembering it all will make you feel old as hell.
