* PlayingAgainstType: I Wanna Go music video she plays an ass grabbing rock diva who sleeps with cops to get out of trouble and kicks paparazzi's butts multiple times. This is the exact opposite of her NiceGirl image and all her other videos where she either dances a lot or places a GoodBadGirl.

* InvisibleAdvertising: Since having her children and passing into a certain level of fame. She's stopped promoting so much. It's more about her priorities being touring/performing for her fans, focusing on her family/friends/significant others and knowing her fans are there for her more then anything else. Some of her fans resent her not doing so many interviews, cameo's, promo's and live performances on shows like Saturday Night Live though. She hasn't stopped entirely, but there has been a slow down since her children came into her life. It's a priority thing.

** She also almost got Umbrella (currently by Rihanna) for what became her Blackout record. One must wonder how she'd do that career evolving track.

** According to a biography of Simon Cowell, he wanted "...Baby One More Time" so badly for his boy band 5ive, that after hearing a demo of it from Max Martin, he [[http://www.ew.com/article/2012/05/01/simon-cowell-sweet-revenge-biography attempted to bribe]] Martin with a very expensive Mercedes-Benz if Martin would give him the song. Martin refused and offered up "Bye Bye Bye" instead. Unfortunately for 5ive, they hated the demo and that song became Music/{{NSYNC}}'s SignatureSong.

** "Dramatic" and "Guilty" getting released would've told her side of the story instead of letting Music/JustinTimberlake hold a pity party for himself. Everytime did the trick in a different way though.

* CreatorBreakdown: From late 2006 to early 2008, until she started focusing on her job again seriously. Since then she's been happy doing what she loves without the drama and chaos of her former life.
