Groove of the Evening/Madonna/”Music”

Happy Thanksgiving Eve to everyone! 

Whatever you’re getting into tonight (or if you’re like me you’re staying in and finally partaking in Black Mirror on Netflix) make the most of it because we all deserve a righteous celebration.

And since we have options like Uber, Lyft, taxi cabs, your Mom, your bestie or anyone else that will no doubt like Ms. Stefani take the time to get you safely from here to there, there should be no reason for anyone to be so fucking stupid as to drink and drive tonight. 

Hey, there’s just no sugar-coating things anymore. With that being said, let’s dance and get ready for all of that music and turkey that’s in your future over the next few days starting right about…

15 Reasons to Get Down to ‘Britney’ Right This Second

If there’s any diva out there who can bring us together with just a flick of her werk, it’s certainly Ms. Britney Spears, whose iconic third studio set, Britney, has just entered its freshman year in music school. 

Served up on Nov 6th, 2001, Brit Brit’s fiery self-titled record was a departure of sorts from the cookie cutter daze of 2000’s Oops…I Did it Again and its ’99 predecessor …Baby One More Time as it put our girl into a more decadent and dangerous sexualized territory, complete with a newfound R&B swagger with help from producers Max Martin, Rodney Jerkins and Pharrell Williams and Chad Hugo who came together as The Neptunes to produce the time withstanding flair of lead single, “I’m a Slave 4 U.” 

Although Britney snatched the top spot selling 736, 000 copies its first week out, the record would become Spears’ only set in her catalog to not contain any top 20 Billboard Hot 100 hits. Yes, it’s true, not even “Slave,” which somehow only shimmied its way to number 27 for some reason unbeknownst to us Godney queens. 

Either way, “Slave” and pretty much the entire album would become an era of Britney we will never forget, because not only would it lead her into the magical In the Zone (and beyond…you know) territory a few years later, but this Ms. Spears era gave us lots and lots of moments we’ll never forget with then boo thang, Justin Timberlake. And of course, there was quite a delicious buffet of music moments that we still live for and fifteen of them are listed below for your Britney reminiscing pleasure.

1.”I’m A Slave 4 U” will forever and always be….life. Plus, you know you still own the choreo from the iconic (making the) video every Saturday night on the dance floor. Just admit it, bitch, now…dance. 

2.The Dream Within a Dream Tour…. Does Britney concert life get anymore livelier than this? Absolutely god damn not. 

3.Because we’re all searching for that perfect ‘I’m Not A Girl, Not A Woman” rock to ponder some shit on…. sigh…even now more than ever…



5.Before “Piece of Me” there was…. “Say hello to the gurrrl that I ayaam”….ah, you fucking know it. 

6.Hey, there Mr. Jerkins… And of course, we just can’t leave out the TRL owning “Overprotected” rewerk, which features that not-so-elusive Darkchild touch that we still can’t live without

7.That moment when 2001ney took over the Bellagio water fountain Fucking priceless

8.Because Crossroads will never make us feel lonely…  Britney’s big screen acting debut….written by Shonda Rhimes….Zoe Saldana…Taryn Manning….Dan Akroyd….Kim Cattrall as “Mom”…that guy, whatever his name is…really, why didn’t this win Best Picture?? Just another one of life’s mysteries…but still pure Brit Brit bliss at its very bestest. 

9.B-A-N-A-N-A…If there was anyone, err, snake who came close to snatching Britney’s 2001 weave, it was Ms. Banana the Python who joined Britney on Sept 6th, 2001 on the iconic VMA stage for a performance of “Slave” that was every bit as slithery as it was oh, so scandalous being that the pop starlet was only nineteen at the time. Now, watch this and all. 

10.Then there’s this…


11.So, there’s this song called “What It Likes to Be Me” It’s Britney. It’s Justin. It’s fucking everything, bitch.

 12.It’s blessed with “Anticipating”…… the most underrated song of her career. Spin it out with your gaggle of gurlfriends all up in a weekend and you’ll absolutely understand why. 

13. No explanation needed. Right, Ms. Jett? 

14. “Boys”….because sometimes we all just need one. Now, let’s get a little randy, baby, with Mr. Powers, Mr. Pharrell, and the legendary Ms. Britney Spears. 

15. Do you really need another reason? If so, here’s “Cinderella” because we gotta go listen to Britney… more time….and then keep on with them changes, kids. Now, get it, get it…wtf. 

And if you’re feeling really angsty…”Lonely” always gets the werk done.
