When Baby One More Time hit the charts in 1998, 17-year-old Britney Spears rose to instant super-stardom. With one hit after another, it seemed like she’d reign queen of the charts forever. What was it about her that people loved so much? She wasn’t perfect but she wasn’t afraid to be herself.
After her (very) public breakdown in 2007, we had to wonder… Would she ever make it back to #1 again? Sure, she’s making a million bucks a week in Las Vegas, but is that enough to get her back to A-List status?
The same reasons we loved Britney way back when are the same reasons we love her today. Her Instagram feed isn’t staged or overly photo-shopped. It shows Britney Spears the mom, the friend and the laid-back Southern girl that stole our hearts so many years ago.
But will Britney ever make it back to #1 on the charts? If she does, you’ll be hearing it here first!!!
