In 1998, a 16-year-old girl from Louisiana named Britney Spears released her debut music video, “Baby One More Time,” which cracked open the world of pop music and ushered in a futuristic new era.

Those who knew her from her three-year stint on The Mickey Mouse Club — which she starred on alongside future beau Justin Timberlake as well as Ryan Gosling and Christina Aguilera — would be hard-pressed to recognize the soulful girl belting out Chaka Khan’s “I Feel for You” in this sultry teenager strutting down the hallway of her high school and doing backflips in a pink sports bra.

“I was praying every night,” she told Rolling Stone about releasing the song. “‘God, please, help them play it on just my radio station at home.’ And then they did. Then all of a sudden, it’s playing on all the big radio stations in New York. And everything just started happening for me, and I was just like, wow, you know?”

Two years after … Baby One More Time, Britney stole the show at the 2000 MTV Video Music Awards when she stripped down from a glittering black tuxedo into a nude sequin look. Fans couldn’t get enough of her “real voice” as she gave a throaty, almost masculine rendition of “(I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction,” before transitioning to “Oops!…I Did It Again.”

“Breaking the Internet” may not have been a thing yet, but if it had been, Madonna kissing Britney (and Christina Aguilera, too) at the 2003 MTV VMAs would have done it. The kiss took over tabloids for weeks. In the performance, the trio took the stage to sing a medley of Madge’s “Like A Virgin/Hollywood,” in which Madonna dressed as a groom while the pop stars were her brides.

Decades before TikTok existed, days were spent memorizing Britney’s choreography in order to recreate some of her most iconic moves.

“Piece of Me” — in which Britney claps back at the media for its portrayals of her — was famously part of her Circus tour in 2009.

Dancing within the golden cage she’s been trapped inside, she sang about being “Miss American Dream since I was 17” and the judgement that’s come with it.

“I’m Miss bad media karma / Another day another drama / Guess I can’t see no harm / In working and being a mama,” she sang with an eye roll, referencing sons Preston and Jayden, whom she welcomed with then-husband Kevin Federline in 2005 and 2006, respectively.
