Remember when Britney surfaced at age 17 cooing “… Baby One More Time”? Of course you do. The image from the video of Spears dressed in a schoolgirl uniform was simultaneously the stuff of teenage strength and independence, and adult male fantasy. From the start, Britney was not that innocent, yet there was a wholesome purity to her presentation. She dated Justin Timberlake, claimed to be a virgin and differentiated between acting sexy and being sexual.
