In knee’s mind this song and Boys went number 1 around the world and it’s more iconic than BOMT and Oops

I didn't know about the Hollywood musical she was writing.. She was really at the beginning of her next chapter as an artist, and at such an young age!!! So sad everything went wrong

On January 18, 2005, the Do Somethin' video leaked online ahead of its scheduled release on January 21 in the UK. Do Somethin' would be the second single off her Greatest Hits: My Prerogative compilat

I was trying to find more info, and just found a post on worldofbritney with a link to download the video, but this was January 14, not 18, so the internet has lied to me all this time :juggingu_britney_hat_meme_neyde:

Omg truth tea spill...she was planning to be casted for the James Bond franchise, she was working on original doll that was supposed to bring respect to her name in the industry, she was going to leave Jive and open her own record label, she received critical acclaim for her HIMYM and W&G, she was expected to become a much more artistic an creatively-liberated artist and then Kevin happened :sad_britney_ftr_for_the_record:

omg @ at the way I used to dance to this song as a 10 year old.  I was obsessed with this video lol. 


Also...i'm not sure if this is going to make sense, but  can ya'll see  the little nuances in the way she dances in this video in the ig videos as well...but maybe like less focused...am I making sense?

But once again people were too rude towards Brit : (

I don't get the "hate" for Do Somethin'. It's one of her better singles and I LOVED the live performances of it. They're always so vibrant!

Also...they blurred the Louis Vuitton pattern in a certain version so they still could air the video. Some versions have an alternative editing too I believe in which they removed this part.

Britney’s team couldn’t take how much control she wanted over her music and must have been thinking of ways to silence her forever. I wish she’d left her label here and moved on like Kylie did in her career.

By this point Britney had outgrown Jive and needed another team that were going to embrace her creative control. Jive still wanted her to be a puppet and Larry still treated her like a little girl they could control rather than the woman she was becoming and wanting to be free with her choices. Sad

These pre-2010 leaks almost always happened inside p2p scene. Napster, Limewire, Kazaa, EMule, DC++ etc. Back in the day it was my only way to watch some performances as youtube didn't even exists so I often stumbled upon leaked/unreleased Britney content. I think I found out about do somethin' from limewire in early 2005 so that might been the leak, who knows. :dontlike_chewing_gum_zoom_bomt_britney:
