We here at THP love Britney Spears. The pop icon’s one-of-a-kind voice and music have made her top the charts for decades and have made her one of the best-selling music artists of all time. There’s a multitude of reasons to stan someone as legendary as Britney Spears, but we’ve narrowed it down to five.
1. Her Music
It goes without saying that the #1 reason to stan Britney Spears is her music! Britney’s been giving us hit after hit ever since she dropped her first album …Baby One More Time back in 1999. An icon of the late 90’s/early 2000s, we’d be hard-pressed to find someone who doesn’t know all the words to ‘Oops! I Did It Again,’ ‘Baby One More Time,’ or ‘Toxic.’ Although the pop princess has graced us with a bunch of songs to sing and dance to, she’s also given us heartfelt ballads like ‘Lucky’ and ‘I’m Not A Girl, Not Yet A Woman.’
2. Her Iconic Performances
Remember when Britney performed ‘I’m A Slave 4 U’ at the 2001 VMA’s while holding a python around her neck? If you don’t, we recommend you check the performance out immediately. Britney’s performances are always entertaining to watch, from the choreography and music to the set design. If you think it can’t get any crazier, there was also a caged tiger behind her! They don’t make performances like this anymore.
3. Her Acting Talent
We’re all familiar with Britney’s music and dancing career, but did you know that she’s also an actress? Britney starred in 2002’s Crossroads, written by none other than Shonda Rhimes. She’s also guest-starred in series’ like Glee, Sabrina the Teenage Witch, and Jane the Virgin. Fun fact: she auditioned for the role of Allie in The Notebook! This woman can do it all, and we admire her for that.
4. Her Style
Whether it’s a red carpet look, a casual outfit, or performance attire, Britney always gives us looks to enjoy and discuss. She’s certainly been a trendsetter. Who could forget the denim dress of the 2001 American Music Awards? Or the iconic schoolgirl outfit from ‘…Baby One More Time?’
5. Her Resilience
Britney’s life in the limelight hasn’t been easy, from the tabloids to the conservatorship she has been under for 13 years under her father, Jamie Spears. Fans have been rallying for years with the hashtag #FreeBritney, to get the courts to remove Jamie Spears as her conservator. Recently, he was finally removed, and Britney thanked fans in a post for their help. Her resilience throughout everything is nothing short of inspiring.
