I decided to dedicate my first post to the princess of pop, Britney Spears. 21 years ago today, on October 23rd 1998, Britney released her very first single “Baby One More Time”. After this song’s debut, the rest was history. Britney paved the way for all the other pop Bitches that came after her. These girls cannot hold a candle to her, not even if they tried. According to billboard, Baby one more time is the 5th best selling single by a female artist EVER in history.
Baby one more time originally was supposed to be a song for TLC but they rejected the song and somehow it was presented to Britney when she was only 16 years old. Can you imagine that? I love the concept of the video: cute/chic broken hearted catholic school girl. Apparently it was all Britney’s idea to have the uniforms and tied up shirt with pig tails. Not only is she musically talented but she also is fashionably brilliant.
I’ve been a die hard Britney Spears fan for 21 years. The second I heard this song is when I instantly fell in love and I was only 8 years old. Since then I’ve seen Britney in concert 10 times and I’ve met her three times over the years. I will save the stories about when I met her for a separate post one day in the near future...
Today, I am celebrating by wearing a baby one more time t shirt and drinking out of a Britney themed wine glass. Here’s to you living legend/iconic queen! Happy anniversary Britney Spears!

Favorite performance of the song is from her Dream Within A Dream tour which I was lucky enough to attend live. This remix is so sexy and so is her diamond studded top that she wore with the tight jeans. Inspired by the queen Madonna of course! I don’t know how she did this performance while getting soaking wet and rained on each time she performed the closing number to the show. No other could do this! Not even if they tried!
