* EpilepticTrees: There are many theories about celebrities being clones and replaced, and Britney is no different. The theory around her came about when she leaked "Mona Lisa" against the studio's wishes. Said song is about a girl getting sick of the limelight and being replaced. The lyric "she's been gone" often being heard as "she's been cloned" also added to the fire.

* HSQ: Dream Within A Dream tour still blows MINDS over ten years since it happened. The Circus tour was also INCREDIBLE. Piece Of Me the residency performances also blows minds. Her VMA performances were also extremely special. Then they're is her music and comeback...

* SignatureSong: At this stage it's "...Baby", "Oops", "Slave 4 U", "Gimme More", "Womanizer", "Till The World Ends" and "Toxic".
* {{Squick}}: The "Baby One More Time" video can cause this once you learn she's only fifteen in it. That schoolgirl shtick was just a little too real.
* SugarWiki/SweetDreamsFuel: "Strangest Love", " Trip To Your Heart", "Heaven On Earth", "When I Found You", "Passenger", "Brightest Morning Star", "Everyday" and "State Of Grace"

* SomeAnvilsNeedToBeDropped: The ''Oops... I Did It Again'' album had a lot of tracks about being yourself; Can't Make You Love Me, What U See, Don't Go Knocking On My Door, and Stronger. Alien and Lucky drops the aesop that even if your surrounded by people you can still feel lonely. Passenger teaches her fans to just let go and fall in love. What It's Like To Be Me drops the aesop of taking the time to know future significant others. Toy Soldier discusses the concept of wanting to date a "real man". Those are but a few examples.
* VindicatedByHistory: Blackout was shafted due to rules (probably not helped by the fact that it was assumed it would automatically be bad, being made right in the middle of her public meltdown,) but now is very loved. This happens every era! She was also vindicated by history by still being around after over 14 years!

* [[SugarWiki/HeReallyCanAct She Really Can Act]]: Britney is rather respected for her comedic-timing in her bit parts on ''Series/HowIMetYourMother'' and ''Series/WillAndGrace''. Others have noticed her talent for acting within her music videos, too. Her old Saturday Night Live comedy performces were good too.

* AlternativeCharacterInterpretation: Mainly, how much control of her career has she ever had in her career? Did she drive herself to be who she is, or was she pushed? Does she want to change her music style to a more jazzy, intimate style, or is she happy doing less personal, but more fun music for her fans? Her former boyfriends, husbands and otherwise and how they affected her. Is she oversexed, or overdrugged? The degree in which she is a "Drugged up victim of a conspiracy" to ensure people she hired continue to make money? Why does she continue to work, every year, for six months, at least, if she obviously hates it so much?..and so much more. For a simple pop star, A LOT of thoughts flurry about her. She has confirmed the truth lies somewhere in the middle - she loves what she does but her people have controlled her in the past. We'll end it here.



* CriticProof[=/=]CriticalDissonance: Extremely popular, despite mountains of hate piled against her, or maybe because of her popularity.



* HollywoodPudgy: The accusations of being fat during her performance at the 2007 Video Music Awards. Ridiculous when compared to people who are ''actually'' overweight. Just plain offensive when her weight was more of an issue to people than her mental state at the time.
** It's actually incredible how good she looks at that point, as many women would kill to have a body like that after giving birth (twice).
** Comments were also made about her when she presented with Music/ChristinaAguilera at the 2000 Video Music Awards. But the thing is Christina is so petite that Britney just looked odd next to her.
* [[HoYay Les Yay]]: Her [[SarcasmMode totally spontaneous]] kiss with Music/{{Madonna}} onstage.



* NeverLiveItDown: Her shaved head, marrying Kevin Federline, bashing a paparazzo's car with an umbrella, partying without panties.
* PopularityPolynomial: Once the [[TheScrappy divine object of hatred amongst music fans]], Britney's downward spiral and public breakdown has caused some of her most ardent haters to feel pity for her and call for the media to lay off of her. Her father and attorney have been appointed as her conservators by the courts and now oversee her personal life and finances. She has since made a real comeback in regards to many opinions of her by scoring 5 number ones in America alone and headlining two successful worldwide tours. Many people these days tend to have sympathy for her given her obvious personal and mental problems.

* TheWoobie: Given how hellish the last decade has been for her and her reputation as being very sweet and kind, it's not surprising that many fans just want to hug her and tell her "It'll all be okay". Depending on how you see it, she could be seen as an IronWoobie. She decided to continue work after all that crap.

* FriendlyFandoms: With MOST fandoms, Lana Del Rey, Selena Gomez, Miley Cyrus, and others.
* GrowingTheBeard: The 'Britney' and 'In The Zone' albums where she first began contributing to the writing of her songs and being sexier/more mature,sexier and more mature, She also became more open with her artistic wants and needs, and challenging the ideas she invented in her first two eras. In The Zone was infinitely more outright sexier, but Britney started it.
