  1. On January 17, 2001, Britney Spears released Don't Let Me Be the Last to Know as the fourth and final single off her second album Oops!... I Did It Again. The song was produced by Robert John "Mutt" Lunge, who co-wrote the song with his then wife, country singer Shania Twain and Keith Scott. The teen ballad talks about a woman who's waiting for her love interest to tell her that he loves her too; despite her friends telling her he's into her, she wants to hear it from him, she doesn't want to be the last to know Despite the song receiving mostly positive reviews, it failed to make its way into any US charts, mainly because it wasn't properly released as a single, but it was sent only to radio stations. However, it did reach Top 10 and Top 20 in many other countries, mainly in Europe, including a #1 in Romania. A music video was directed by Herb Ritts, but it wasn't released until March 2001. Several remixes were created, the most notable being the Hex Hector Club Mix, which would later appear on B in the Mix: the Remixes. The song was first performed on her Crazy 2k Tour in 2000, ahead of the release of the album. Then it was included on her Oops!... I Did It Again Tour She also performed the song in many tv shows and the Dream Within a Dream Tour almost 10 years later, she would bring it back for her Femme Fatale Tour in 2011 Britney Spears has stated in multiple occasions that Don't Let Me Be the Last to Know is one of her favorite songs. For example, in 2013 she named it her favorite song of hers:
  2. On January 08, 2001, the 28th American Music Awards took place at the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles. They were hosted by Britney Spears and LL Cool J. Britney herself was one of the performers of the night, along with Jennifer Lopez, Toni Braxton, Pink, Jessica Simpson, Ricky Martin, Marilyn Manson, among others. Faith Hill was the biggest winner of the night with 3 awards. Britney Spears got several nominations, but didn't take any of the awards: Artist of the Year - lost to *NSync Favorite Pop/Rock Female Artist - lost to Faith Hill Favorite Pop/Rock Album (Oops!... I Did It Again) - lost to Creed's Human Clay Here you can watch the performance, courtesy of Britney Online @CJMCH And the full show This is also the night of the iconic denim dress. In 2013, during a Britney Jean / Vegas promo interview for MTV, she revealed the denim outfits were her idea and that she still has the dress. In August 2020, she posted about it on her Instagram account
  3. Disclaimer: This might be one of the most confusing release dates to track. Unlike Born to Make You Happy which had a very concise release, Overprotected, an international single, seemed to have had very different release dates across the world, both the single and the music video. If you go to the English Wikipedia page, the earliest release they show is December 12 in Japan. If you go to the Spanish Wikipedia, which has the "good article badge", it shows December 18. Yet it seems in Australia they got it even earlier, on December 08. The official Britney Spears website doesn't mention it and other sources I've quoted before, such as this list made by britney.com blogger BRITannica, either. Then when it comes to the video, it's missing concrete sources as well. I'm creating this thread today, because the earliest confirmation I could find was this entry (9th post from the bottom to the top) on worldofbritney.com that reveals the music video was premiered in Latin America on December 20, 2001. Yet on ukmix, there's a comment that says they've already seen the video by December 15, and even worldofbritney has the screencaps of it. This other thread may confirm they had it in "Holland" around those days. So if you know a concrete date for the release of the single or the video, please share What we know for sure is that on December 2001, Britney Spears released Overprotected as the second single off her third studio album Britney. In Europe it was released on January 2002. This single was released internationally, while on the United States they got I'm Not a Girl, Not Yet a Woman (whose release date is also another story ). For the third single they would switch, thus the US getting Overprotected (Darkchild Remix) and the rest of the world getting Not a Girl. These entries were supposed to be created by our very own @Roxxy so here I'll quote her comments on the calendar page: Written and produced by Max Martin and Rami, Overprotected stands as one of only five Britney songs to be nominated for a Grammy. In 2003, it was up for Best Female Pop Vocal Performance - her third and final nomination in the category. Overprotected was a Top 10 hit in 13 countries including #4 in the UK and #1 in Poland, ultimately peaking at #8 on the European Hot 100. The Darkchild Remix peaked at #86 on the US Hot 100 and #22 on the Canadian Hot 100. Overprotected is a global Top 10 peaking at #6 on the United World Chart dated March 9, 2002. It spent 14 weeks in the chart. The music video was directed by Billie Woodruff (who directed Born to Make You Happy two years before) and choreographed by @BrianFriedman More roxxy comments: The Billie Woodruff video features an intro using another track from the album, Bombastic Love. TRIVIA TIME! The Overprotected music video stands tall as the only one in her videography to feature two songs from her catalog. Not only that, the music video also takes pride in the fact that it is the only one to have it's own follow-up via the release of the Darkchild Remix music video. It's so good that they had to release two official versions, each with their own music video. I mean, how cool is that? Your faves could never, honestly. Don't even try to come for Godprotected. The opening scene, which plays Bombastic Love in the background, shows Britney opening a door and right outside is a swarm of paparazzi waiting for her as she makes her way to her car and drives off. She stops by an abandoned warehouse where she reflects on being 'overprotected' - and in true Britney fashion, she feels herself on some of the furniture. She is also shown sitting on a horse from a carousel because she needs 'joy'. Soon after, her dancers arrive and they do one of her best dance breaks eveeer. After she goes ACTION! is where the song takes you to a high as it goes into a crescendo towards the final chorus and features this iconic scene where Britney literally needs her 'space' with the walls closing in on her with the phrases 'Britney Mania!' 'Girl of the Year' 'Album Goes Double Platinum' 'There Is No Stopping Her!' 'WORLD TOUR SELLS OUT!' Never has a Britney Spears music video been so self aware and so proud of herself, her sales, and her achievements - and this is coming from one of the most humble pop girls in history. Which is why the original Overprotected music video should be a celebrated gem in her videography. This is one of the rare moments where Britney acknowledges that she is indeed 100% that girl. Btw, I always mention her appearances on the MTV Latin America yearly Top 100, but this video was her very first huge snub. It didn't make the list in 2001 because it was released almost at the end of the year, but it totally deserved to appear in 2002, when it really became a hit. However, the video didn't appear at any position at all, infuriating all the fans who voted it throughout the year on the weekly Top 10 and Top 20.
  4. On December 04, 2001, the Billboard Music Awards took place at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas. Destiny's Child were the biggest winners of the night. Britney Spears performed I'm a Slave 4 U, the lead single off her third studio album Britney, on a platform placed in front of the Fountains of Bellagio.
  5. A day like today but in 2001, Colombian superstar Shakira released her first bilingual record. This happened 19 years ago, which feels like forever ago, and at the same time, just like yesterday. I feel great writing about this, since this album is one that marked my life. While it was mainly recorded in English, it was the singles in Spanish what made this album so great in my opinion. 'Whenever Wherever' is great, but 'Suerte' is sublime. 'Objection' needs to be played loud, but 'Te Aviso Te Anuncio' needs to be played thunderously. 'Te Dejo Madrid' is a rock and roll anthem and she looks gorgeous in the music video. 'Que Me Quedes Tú', is one of the most beautiful love songs ever written. Also, we had the chance to get a version in English of her iconic song 'Ojos Así' ('Eyes Like Yours'), which actually belonged to her former release 'Dónde Están Los Ladrones'- another masterpiece, by the way. 'Underneath Your Clothes', her first single in English (that didn't have a Spanish counterpart), has smexy written all over it. A honeymoon anthem, I'd say. Now let us run down the deep cuts: Songs like 'Rules', 'The One', and 'Fool', depicted Shakira's artistry just as we, Spanish speakers grasped it since her beginning: rock-tinged, smart lyricism, and her signature vocals. 'Ready For the Good Times' is a certified bop. It deserved single treatment. Lyrically, it is probably her most "main pop girl" song, if someone knows what I mean. 'Poem to a Horse' closed the era. It is edgy, clever, unapologetic, and it needed a proper music video. Finally, these songs were the inception of that joke that we just don't get Shaki's enunciation, be it Spanish or English, lol. This was a game changer for Shakira, what laid the basis for her future success in the English-speaking world, and today, we celebrate it. Exhale, how do you feel about this body of work?
  6. On November 1, 2001, Britney Spears' Dream Within a Dream Tour kicked off at the Nationwide Arena in Ohio. It was launched to support her third studio album Britney and it lasted until July 2002, after 69 shows across the United States, Canada, Japan and Mexico. It was promoted by Concerts West, marking the first time a tour of hers was not promoted by Clear Channel Entertainment. It was directed and choreographed by Wade Robson, with Steve Cohen and Rob Brenner designing the stage. The setlist was composed by songs from her first three records, mainly from Britney. Oops!... I Did It Again (You Drive Me) Crazy Overprotected Born to Make You Happy Lucky Sometimes Boys Stronger I'm Not a Girl, Not Yet a Woman I Love Rock 'n' Roll What It's Like to Be Me Lonely Don't Let Me Be the Last to Know Anticipating I'm a Slave 4 U ...Baby One More Time Some unreleased songs were also performed at selected dates: Mystic Man, Weakness, You Were My Home and My Love Was Always There. Some of the October dates had to be pushed back to December due to Britney having the flu, and the last show of the tour at Foro Sol in Mexico, had to be cancelled mid-show because of a thunderstorm that was occurring. The November 18th show at MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, was broadcasted by HBO and later released as a DVD titled Britney: Live from Las Vegas in January 2002. A book and DVD chronicling her stay in Mexico was also released in February 2002, titled Stages: Three Days in Mexico. With more than 1 million in attendance, the tour grossed a total of $56.8 million which would be equivalent to $83.4 million in 2020. Related:
  7. Does anyone remember this girl from the early 2000s? It took me WEEKS to remember her name after originally wanting to post about her in a different post here lol.
  8. On September 6, 2001, the MTV Video Music Awards aired live from the Metropolitan Opera House in New York. Fatboy Slim was the biggest winner of the night with six moonmen, for the video Weapon of Choice, followed by NSYNC with 4 and the collaboration between Christina Aguilera, Lil Kim, Mýa and Pink for Lady Marmalade with 2, including Video of the Year. It also featured memorials for Aaliyah and Joey Ramone. The show counted with performances by Jennifer Lopez, Linkin Park, Alicia Keys and NSYNC featuring MIchael Jackson among others, but the biggest event was Britney Spears' performance of I'm a Slave 4 U, the lead single off her third studio album Britney set to be released later that year. The performance had a jungle theme and she started it by standing inside a cage with a live tiger. Besides a heavy choreography that featured what would later become her signature dance breakdown, the performance included towards the end another live animal, an albino python (named Banana). The performance became an instant classic, and to this day is remembered as one of the best performances of the VMA's. Sadly, MTV made the official video private https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PBlBaCigDAs&feature=youtu.be but here's another one: Britney was nominated for Best Pop Video (Stronger) but lost to NSYNC's Pop.
  9. I was watching Britney’s “Stronger” from the 2001 AMAS, and got curious about the aesthetic and visual references in this performance. As a kid, I didn’t understand the choice of 80’s metal for it. Watching it as an adult, the stage set, wardrobe, and costumes are clearly borrowed from the late King of Pop MJ, particularly his Bad era, which makes sense considering Glam Metal, or big hair metal, were all the rage during the mid to late 80’s. In fact, MJ was known to employ female rock guitarists for his tours in the late 80s. Scrolling through gifs of late 80’s MJ, the references become even more obvious. The use of fog, big hair, wind, and overall grittiness, I mean. Then, I browsed YouTube comments for the Stronger AMAS, and discovered that the lead solo guitarist was Jennifer Batten. Googled her name: I’m a little shook tbh, because I had no idea that that was her on stage with Britney! I mean, I still don’t really know who she is, I just know about her link to MJ. As a kid, I didn’t understand any of the choices in this performance and thought it was Britney wanting to be “edgy” lol. I used to think it was kind of weird, actually. It wasn’t until just now, when I realized this was definitely an homage to MJ. When it aired, the media was too concerned with Britney being a bad influence for being **** on stage, and never gave any credit for the thoughtful treatment behind all of this. These sort of tidbits/facts about Britney's iconic performances make me appreciate them even more. Such an under-appreciated performance. Let's talk about why this is so very iconic. Queen of paying homage to her industry predecessors! Some thoughts: The light/non-eyebrow with that shade of blond <3 Girls in boy tightie whities, hot Hairflip at 1:49 before she snaps. The hairflip game is strong in this one! 2:25 when Britney becomes posessed by Jennifer Batten's guitar solo 2:38 hairography into the cannon 3:00 the backup dancers throw off their blond wigs and leave them on the floor. Britney snaps again, and chaos ensues. Watching this is like getting multiple ******* in the span of one song. Loves me some Badassney.

  13. I love these Survival games, y'all So I figured I'd start one for her selftitled album from 2001! Rules are: You get to upvote one track and downvote one track. They all start at 10 and once a track reaches 0, it's eliminated! To make it fun, I thought it'd be fun to add Intimidated as well, because it is an official B-Side from the era...
