** In an interview with Richard Blackwood in 2001, she said she got a script and would've loved to have been a part of the movie. She never revealed what movie it was, but, by context clues (the year, "it's a love story", the other woman who auditioned was solely an actress), most people think she was almost cast as the lead in 'The Notebook'.

* OldShame: Sort of. She has said outright she thinks all her past music [[PrecisionFStrike fucking rocks]]...but she has said that of all the fashions she's worn, the red LatexSpaceSuit from "Oops!...I Did It Again" is the one thing she'd never wear again, saying it was hot, uncomfortable, and it felt like wearing a balloon. In 2004, she announced at a show that she never liked her 1998 song Sometimes. It's well known that she also never liked her song Outrageous but her label made her record it.

** The original idea for "Britney" was to be an album called "Shock Your Mind" with more grown up and personal lyrics. This was halted by her recording company who felt Max Martin was needed for at least one more album.
** "Everytime" original video
** "Don't Let ME Be The Last To Know" had an original video which was sexier then the released version.

** Speaking of "...Baby One More Time," Max Martin originally wrote the song for Music/{{TLC}}, but they had issues with the lyrics, and they were on hiatus at the time anyway. There were no hard feelings from TLC about missing out on it; after all, their comeback single wound up being a huge hit itself - a little ditty called "No Scrubs."

* AcclaimedFlop: ''Blackout'' was critically acclaimed but shafted by ''Billboard'' at the last minute, who changed their rulings at the eleventh hour before it was due to hit #1. It debuted at #2 and found mediocre success.

* 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.
