Why We Love Britney Spears

Most men can remember where they were when they first saw the heart-stopping video for Britney’s debut single, One More Time, waaaaay back in 1998 (yes, it’s really been that long). It was immediately clear that that gyrating schoolgirl was destined for big, big things – but who’da thunk that she’d still be knocking out No1 singles and trouser-melting videos a decade-and-a-half later?

Of course, it’s not always been plain sailing for the Mississippi minx: she’s endured a bitter divorce, a minor breakdown, that weird head-shaving incident and a guest-spot on a Will.I.Am single. But she’s come through the other side more bad-ass and – dare we say it – hotter than ever. Britters 4-eva.
