  1. 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 compilation album, released on February of the same year. The music video was co-directed by Britney herself under the alias of Mona Lisa, along with Billie Woodruff, who had previously directed the Born to Make You Happy and Overprotected videos. However, the music video which was filmed on December 2004, almost didn't happen: Britney Spears had to fight her record label for it. In a letter she published on her official website on January 03, she wrote: " I just shot a cute video for "Do Something" that I co-directed. After doing about 20 videos, it gets kind of boring playing the same role, so I chose to work with a young, hungry, director Bille Woodruff. He had no ego whatsoever and the whole process was just so much fun. Oh, his dog was just adorable too. As much fun as I had, I have to say I was a little disappointed that I still had to convince my record label that making this video was the right thing to do at this time. But, in the end, I think everything came out great. We shot the entire video in a record breaking 5 hours. I even came up with all the choreography and styled the entire shoot myself using Juicy Couture clothing. Co-directing this video was like an experimental project for me. I feel like being behind the camera is sometimes more satisfying than being in front of it. Working on this video was my first taste into behind the scenes work which I am excited about doing more of in the near future. When a woman directs, I think it just alters the entire feel of the movie, production or play in such a positive way. Speaking of, I've been working on writing and hopefully eventually directing a musical which makes fun of the whole Hollywood scene, which is appropriately titled "Hollywood". " In the video we see her riding a flying, pink Hummer as she and her friends arrive to a club. After doing some choreo, she and her bandmates end up performing the song onstage. Additionally, we see intercut scense of Britney Spears in a dark room where she's wearing black underwear and a white mini fur coat, as well as a Hello Kitty necklace and other jewelry. The video was quite popular around the world, and in MTV Latin America it landed at #35 in the year-end Top 100 of 2005. In 2007, it was reported that LVMH's subsidiary Louis Vuitton won a lawsuit on 80,000 EUR for the unauthorized close-ups to the Hummer's dashboard on the video, which was covered in a Louis Vuitton pattern. However the tribunal ruled ruled that responsibility for the unauthorized use of the Louis Vuitton brand lay with Sony, BMG and its subsidiary Zomba as well as MTV Online, and not Britney. As a consequence, the video was also banned from airing on any European TV station.
  2. On November 15, 2005, Madonna released Confessions on a Dancefloor, her tenth studio album. Inspired in the disco music from the 70s and 80s, it sampled several artists' songs, such as ABBA's Gimme! Gimme! Gimme! (A Man After Midnight). It went #1 in almost every country it charted including the US Billboard 200, breaking the record for topping the charts in the most countries. It won the Grammy for best Electronic/Dance album in 2007. 4 singles were released to promote the album: Hung Up, Sorry, Get Together and Jump. It was praised by the critics and it's considered one of Madonna's greatest albums, as well as one of the best of the decade of the 00s.
  3. On November 22, 2005, Britney Spears released B in the Mix: The Remixes, her first remix album. It contained remixes of songs from her first four studio albums, as well as remixes for Someday (I Will Understand) and the unreleased song And Then We Kiss, the remix of which had been released earlier in October as a promotional single in Australia and New Zealand. Several DJ's worked on the record to create the remixes. At some point early in 2005, Jive Records had planned to release a Japan-exclusive remix album titled Greatest Remixes, but those plans didn't come to fruition. It was later reported by Billboard that Junkie XL had remixed a new song for Britney, that would be used to promote her perfume Fantasy and that would be included on a collection simply titled Remixed. In September 2005, a promotional EP titled Key Cuts from Remixed was sent to DJs in 12" vinyl and CD formats. It contained 2 to 5 remixes, depending on the version, which included mainly In the Zone tracks plus And Then We Kiss. It was on November 2005 that the titled of the compilation was confirmed by MTV, and a contest was held through her official fansite among those that pre-ordered the album, the prize being a copy of Britney & Kevin: Chaotic, a bottle of Fantasy and an autographed picture. The day of the release, a party was hosted at a club in Los Angeles by WorldOfBritney.com, which Britney also helped to pay, commenting through an official statement: "I just wanted to say that I love the idea of all my fans getting together to celebrate the release of my new album. I was happy to help! I hope you have a great night out at the club and dance all night long!" The album received mixed reviews and it peaked at #134 on the BB200, while landing at #4 on the Top Dance/Electronic albums chart. The international version of the album received an alternative cover.
  4. The K-Fed Era 2004 April 23: Britney and Kevin are first photographed together on a beach in Santa Monica, California. June 7: Britney proposes to K-Fed on a flight back from Europe, but he declines. Then, "he changes his mind and asks her, and she says yes." (Britney & Kevin Timeline) June 9: Britney busts her knee during the video shoot for "Outrageous" and cancels the second leg of her Onyx Hotel tour. September 18: Britney and Kevin have a surprise marriage ceremony in Studio City, California October 6: The couple file their marriage license and are officially married. They fly to Fiji for their honeymoon. November 9: Britney releases her Greatest Hits: My Prerogative album 2005 May 17 :"Britney and Kevin: Chaotic" premieres September 14: Sean Preston Federline is born November 22: Britney quietly releases B in the Mix, the Remixes. 2006 May 9: Britney appears on "Late Show With Dave Letterman" to announce she's five months pregnant. September 12: Jayden James Federline is born November 7: Britney files for divorce. He finds out via text message. -------- The "K-Fed era" has become a real sore spot for the B-Army. For many fans, K-Fed's entry into the Britney narrative is a major point of contention for being the moment when Primeney Era came to an end. Personally, when I look at photos of Britney around this time in her life, I see a certain type of beauty that's different from her previous years. At age 22, Britney had 4 incredibly successful studio albums under her belt, a lead role in her own feature film, 6 successful concert tours, etc., and was a bonafide international icon. Britney was also burnt out from being overworked to the bones all those years. I see a young woman who had grown up in front of the world, determined to live her life on her own terms. Let's take a moment to appreciate K-Fedney's beauty. These are some of my favorite pictures of Britney from this period in her life. What are yours? Thoughts?
