  1. Fans always reference Brian, Andre and Wade when they mention Britney’s iconic choreography throughout the years but what about the guy who taught Britney the BOMT choreo. Before I read this I didn’t know his name. Randy Connor choreographed ‘Baby’. His work has stood the test of time. So flawless. I don’t think he’s gotten enough recognition and credit that I think he deserves. Here he reminisces on his experience working with a 16 year old Britney Spears. (Thank You, Randy!!) I posted his quotes in case the link doesn’t work. _________________ Britney was no record label’s puppet,” says Randy. She had a key voice in the production and her creative touches made the video iconic. The school class was her idea, which she convinced the management would be better than their idea. "Britney wanted the video to relate to her fans and their experiences, so felt a school was more natural and realistic to them and her personality. “The idea was they are daydreaming about getting out and having fun, remembering a guy she broke up with.” Britney talked Randy and director Nigel **** around on the school theme at the 11th hour and they grabbed the outfit from a department store. “It was kinda last minute but Nigel and I thought it was a fantastic idea,” says Randy. “All the uniforms were picked up from K-Mart for about £19 with costumiers working fast to get them fitted. “After a couple of takes Britney felt that the tails of the shirt were getting in the way of her hand movements. So before another take she tied a knot in the shirt. It happened naturally. She was in fantastic shape so her midriff was toned. “I heard she kept that outfit. It has become an iconic look. It is now one of people’s go-to costumes for Halloween.” When the video was released, its impact on pop culture was seismic. “It was innocent in its conception, but the integration of the styling and choreography created that edge,” says Randy. Bosses at Jive Records teamed Randy with Britney in late 1997 after signing her to be “the next big thing”. Preparations included her learning acrobatics, having six-hour rehearsal sessions, five days a week, before writing and recording sessions. Randy says: “Jive saw Britney as their next big project. And their plan was not simply to knock out a quick song and video but to grow and build her as an entertainer. We wanted to create moves that would have people hooked. She learned acrobatics and practised for hours. She is a natural athlete and fast learner, who just relished every rehearsal. “When I looked into her eyes I saw a genuine, sincere kid, a young girl, who was driven and willing to work 150%. She never complained.” Baby One More Time was filmed over two days at Venice House School in LA – the site used to film Grease in 1978. Randy, 47, says: “It was relentless but there were no complaints because this was her passion. “I lost count of how many backflips she did. It was groundbreaking too with the casting, because we had a diverse cast of dancers – which represented what the truth about American schools.” Britney even did a Dirty Dancing lift but it was cut from the final edit. “It was an incredible moment where Britney ran and jumped into the arms of our lead dancer,” says Randy. “It was beautiful.” Randy says when Britney was shown the finished video, she almost broke her bed jumping around at her hotel. She knew it was special and proud her idea came good,” he says. “Her look and sound were different. Straight after, everyone knew the words, kids were doing the choreography and it was all over radio. After its release it took a life of its own.” And Randy says while she owes so much to Baby One More Time, Britney also got where she is because of the work ethic, determination, resilience and creativity she showed him in those two days in LA – and she still has 20 years on. She had hunger and drive to be an artist, not just a star, and a real pro,” he says. “The fact she is still where she is now tells the story.” Source: https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.mirror.co.uk/3am/celebrity-news/britney-spears-baby-one-more-13455282.amp
  2. I just finished watching Locked up and Elite, i loved both...
  3. Since we're all so obsessed with her appearance even though she's beautiful 100% of the time! My opinion: 2000 (teenage/youthful beauty) 2002 (primeney) 2006 (post-pregnantney) 2008-09 (more mature, womanly, vulnerable, GLOWING) 2013 (she seemed so happy and youthful again after an admittedly rough 2011-12) 2016 (return to primeney body, giving us the original Britney attitude again) 2018 (matureney, seems young again, happy, awkwardly adorable) What do you guys think?
  4. Things I share with Jeffree Time marked, ears bleeding
  5. how is that possible for britney to look so different in meet and greets back in the 2011...wow the difference is huge and they are from the same year
  6. One day when Britney was about thirteen and Jamie Lynn was just a toddler, we all went to a local pastor we knew for some family counseling. Jamie's drinking had been out of control, and I thought this pastor could give us some much- needed guidance on how to keep us four from splintering. We only went a few times - nobody except me really appreciated what the pastor was saying - but he did point out something profound. "If this young lady [Britney] and her daddy don't resolve their issues, and he doesn't try harder to establish a good, strong relationship with her, she will end up clinging to the first real romance in her life. That man will be of extreme importance in her life, and that relationship will determine the course of all her relationships with men from then on." I couldn't know at the time, but of course, the first true romance in Britney's life was Justin, her childhood sweetheart, the one who had been friends with her since they were both young cast mates on MMC. – Lynne I wonder the impact of the c-ship on their relationship and how affected her relations with men. I hope she is happy and that soon enough she will have the stable family and happy ending she always dreamed of
  7. I was watching some of the vids where she was signing autographs and stuff and it made me wonder where some of the people who saw her there first are nowadays. those people have to have those autographs and promo CD’s somewhere, and I’m sure they have such a cool story to tell. They met brinni before she was brinni. I wonder if they stayed fans of her or if they still care about her even today. It’s so crazy to think about her entire career and how at that point she could’ve never even imagined what her life was going to become. Back then she was just a small town girl who planned on being a music teacher and getting married after all the hype died down but then it never did...
  8. Hey guys, could you please help me find Britney's tweet in which she names us "Britney Army"? I googled it and I can't find it... I swear my googling skills get worse as years go by, hah...
  9. I can’t seem to find any info on him. Do you think he was just a “skit” for the show? I can’t recall following the threads here during the time and kinda lost the interest during that era.
  10. What do you guys think Britney will do/act once the conservatorship ends? It's been 10 years so far and I don't really think she needs it anymore. I'm hoping she will open up more because she seems so distant. Do you think they will end it soon? Thoughts??
  11. Hey fam! We decided to revamp the General section (don't worry, the old posts still exist just in case we need em). Wanted to kick things off with a post your photos thread. Would be nice to put a face to the name! Dis me:
  12. The other day I was listening to Janet’s All For You album and I realized how similar it was to Britney (2001). I feel like Britney could’ve killed so many songs on that album, especially this one: I could totally hear her voice on this, singing like how she does in Do Somethin’. Sounds like Cinderella, Bombastic Love, and Lonely. Nelly Furtado’s Loose is another album that is very Britney. I think Danja is on a few tracks and that’s why. These songs are soooo Blackout. THIS SONG ESPECIALLY!! I could hear Britney on every track tbh, but I can’t link every single one. I really recommend listening to the whole album, you’ll see what I mean
  13. Can we just agree this was bad from scratch? I mean, what did these people have on mind? They KNEW she wasn't going to blow everything up like usual + they didn't have the magic trick part. What made they think letting her in there without a snake, without a special prop, without coming from the ceiling or anything, any explosions, was a good thing? Sometimes I feel it was planned as a fiasco (Ps. The MOST AMAZING to notice, is that she does some parts better than the double)
  14. I’ve seen it referenced a few times in #FreeBritney posts so thought it be an interesting and relevant watch. However, I’ve only found it to stream or buy on DVD through Amazon Prime US but as I’m from the U.K. I can’t watch it that way anyone know another?? Here’s the trailer below for it:
  15. Anyone knows where this is from? Why does she have a long *** ponytail and the extensions look nice but then in the official performance he hair looked mesy? She even had short hair again for the leaked rehearsal which I suppose was before the one on the gif as dress rehearsals are done closer to the show, I have so many questions
  16. i really hope she stops trying to show she has a voice with vocals like so free with you, what you need and private show i would love tracks with some ice cold and **** vocals like blur, early mornin or just like me this song would be a summer hit if it was hers even tho it's very rihanna and kali uchis have amazing beats, just go steal her producer!
  17. OLD THREAD THAT WAS BROUGHT BACK FROM THE DEAD - My question is a little different on this topic now. Bye.
  18. Someone mentioned that the Britney-Madonna Kiss was one of the worst things she did in her career. I should not have even responded to such heresy, but i did and its all irrelevant cause the gospel truth is that the performance is a piece of art that belongs in a f**king pop culture museum or something of the sort. The performance is so much more than two women kissing. Its a meeting of two generations. Its the Queen of Pop knighting the Princess. Its a middle finger solute to those against marriage equality. Its sensationalism and, in classic Madonna fashion, also commentary there of. And it got me thinking about reading once that Madonna had initially asked Pink and Gwen Stefani to be the brides. This led me to think up alternative versions of the performance. Imagine if Madonna was still The Groom, Britney and Christina were still The Brides, Missy was still The Best Man but we added a Priest in the form of the King of Pop himself Michael Jackson. How epic would that be? It also got me thinking about a gender swap of sorts. What if Michael was the opening act and he invited Chris Brown and Usher or JT or some other celebrated young male singers. And they kissed... How would the world have responded then?
  19. So his first reading was crazy accurate! Here's a new one! https://youtu.be/3Aptl6qupV8
  20. She still looked very youthful in 2007 despise the circumstances. then in 2008 she didn’t look the same
  21. Update #2: wow 3 years now! I will be bumping this Update: 2 years ago I started this thread and it's still active to this date. So cheers for !! I remember bringing this game here years ago, and I'm bored so let's do it again Expectation Reality Expectation Reality
  22. So @PokemonSpears brought up the censorship on the Jonathan Ross Show in another thread and I only remembered they cut out the part about the conservatorship, but that's not true I found this: Britney Spears reportedly brought up her conservatorship while taping 'The Jonathan Ross Show' A couple Britney fans attended the Britney interview that was recorded today for the Jonathan Ross show. The fan revealed that the show was really awkward and the interview lasted about 40 minutes, ending w/ a "Make Me" performance. The fan says he expects the show to cut "so much" of the interview. - Brit was uncomfortable throughout the interview, denying a lot of the "fun" things they proposed & often answered with a short "yes" or "no" - said that "Glory" is her baby because she couldn't really do what she wanted on the few previous albums due to her conservatorship. - admits that due to her conservatorship, the music was brought to her finished and she had no say in decisions (allegedly it seemed as though she wanted to go more in depth but Jonathan changed subjects) probably cause he is not allowed to talk about it - They brought out a tarantula and she ran off the stage - Reveals she is obsessed with cooking rice - Said she doesn't go to any parties in Vegas because they're filled with drugs, hasn't smoked weed since she was 17 - Talks about leaving the stage during "Circus" because everyone was smoking weed & she was getting contact high - Went backstage to kiss Alexander Skarsgard & refused to try Swedish food - Admitted to farting while she performs 3 years? did something about it change in 2013 or did she just forget again? Jesus, I'd kill to watch that full, uncut interview.
  23. Annette Stamatelatos is actually kind of known in both Greece and Cyprus. We know her as Annet Artani and I just googled to check if she gave any Greek interviews about Britney, and I found out than in her Wikipedia page you can actually read some interesting stuff. While singing as a singer-songwriter in clubs all over New York City, Artani received a phone call from a friend saying that she should audition to be a backing vocalist for Britney Spears. She was called back and informed that she would be on The Rosie O'Donnell Show with Spears and would subsequently be a part of the Dream Within a Dream Tour.[3] Her interactions with Spears during most of the tour were limited to small conversations at the gym and vocal warm ups. Artani had begun a relationship with the show's musical director during 2002; however, it was not working out well by the end of the tour. Before the last date in Mexico City, Spears called her and asked about the relationship. Artani told her they were going to break up, to which Spears responded, "Don't worry about it, you're going to hang out with me".[5] Following the end of the tour, Spears and Artani began to forge a friendship. Spears invited Artani to her house in Los Angeles, California. According to Artani, their relationship grew out of their shared romantic experiences at the time. She explained, "Basically, we commiserated because she, at that time, had broken up with Justin [Timberlake]. Maybe like nine months before, but of course it was really fresh in the media. I was just breaking up with this guy, so we kind of like—I think we kind of needed each other." Artani stayed at Spears's house for a few weeks, in which they started writing songs at the piano. Shortly after, they traveled to Lake Como in Lombardy, Italy. Artani added, "It was me and her, her stylist and Felicia, and we had this humongous house to ourselves, and they had a piano there as well".[5] According to Artani, "Everytime" was written in large part as a response to "Cry Me a River" as well as various radio interviews. Artani explained, "He was getting personal. Here, she had a different type of image, and he was really exposing some stuff that she probably didn't want out there, and in front of her little sister ... I remember her sister being mortified and her being mortified. I'm sure that that really hurt her."[5] "Everytime" was recorded at Conway Studios in Los Angeles and mixed at Frou Frou Central in London, England.[6] "Everytime" was released as a single on May 17, 2004 through Jive Records, and was positively received by critics, who complimented its simple lyrics and the organic feel of the song She eventually decided to leave the US, and in 2004 came to Greece and participated in the Greek version of the Star Academy. She decided to leave the show but her fanbase was already pretty strong at the time. She represented Cyprus in the Eurovision Song Contest in 2006, but she didn't qualify to the final. Then she moved back to the US and wrote "Alive", her biggest hit to date. I did found some Greek interviews as well. The highlights were that when she auditioned for Britney, it was actually her birthday, September 6th. She said that she has written many songs, and usually she really pays attention to the vocals, which she didn't do with Britney because "she's more of a show woman". She had dreams of being in Broadway, but when she was offered to do "Rent" replacing Idina Menzel she couldn't go because she had a contract with Britney. She's mostly talking about the song as "the song I wrote for Britney"... She said Britney was just a moment in her life and not part of it, that she'd work with her again but if she doesn't, it's the same thing for her. She said that Britney saw her being moody and asked what's wrong. Right when she told her about her affair, Britney immediately told her that she has to stay with her until they leave Mexico. Then, in New York, Britney didn't wanna leave her. Annet would take Britney out to bars and clubs, even helping her sneak out without her bodyguards noticing her but usually Big Rob would find out and he'd get really angry at them. They visited Milano and Lake Como for Donatella Versace's fashion show, and in Lake Como they stayed in Gianni's house where they had a great time. After this trip they went to Los Angeles, and wrote the song. First, Annet sat on the piano and started playing. Then Britney sat right next to her and they started writing the song. Annet had a piece of paper and a pen and she'd write down anything they said. They finished the song within an hour. The very next day, Britney recorded a demo of the song and sent it to Larry, and Larry sent it to Guy Sigsworth. Very soon, she visited London to record it. When asked about what Britney is like as a person, she said she has a good heart, but she's psychologically confused. When every single person depends on you since you're 16, you're going to be somewhat confused. She then says that Britney's breakdown was something she had seen coming and was waiting for. Back then she couldn't get to talk to Britney, so she contacted Felicia, who informed her that Britney won't talk to anyone, "not even her cousin". She said back in 2010 that she thinks her dad is handling it pretty well, keeping Britney away from everyone, and even if they don't get to talk, she's happy she's seeing her getting better and better. Today she's happy for Britney because she's been through a lot.
  24. Saw this really great video summing up some of the Britney related easter eggs in thr Ashley O Black mirror episode. My question to you is what others did you find????
