* WTHCostumingAgency: Her black sequin bra and panties from the 2007 VMAs. It did not help that she seemed stoned out of her mind, which negated any fanservice value this may have been intended to invoke.

It did not help that she seemed stoned out of her mind, which negated any fanservice value this may have been intended to invoke. She was actually supposed to wear a black corset during the performance, but refused at the last minute, so it wasn't completely her stylists' fault.

** Given that the song is actually about needing a new man, this may be a stretch, but the lines "This time I need a soldier [...] That knows how to take, take care of me / I'm so damn glad it's over" could, if you really think about it, serve as foreshadowing for the conservatorship that she'd be placed under that same year that would, ultimately, cause even more turmoil and disappointment in her personal life.

* NeverLiveItDown: Her opening performance at the 2007 VMAs certainly qualifies as this during her CreatorBreakdown, with countless critics and fans noting she looked stoned and disoriented on stage, seemingly lip-synching through the whole thing. And then there was her paparazzi incident with the umbrella shortly thereafter...



* WinBackTheCrowd: Circus started her resurrection.

* WhatDoYouMeanItWasntMadeOnDrugs: Pretty much everyone's reaction to her performance at the 2007 VMAs.

** (([[Inverted]]))Arguably her entire breakdown has become more sympathetic as years have gone by, and the specifics of why she did certain [MakesSenseIncontext insane seeming] actions. Particularly her infamous head-shaving which was revealed to be a direct attack against the various stylists and producers trying to control her day tto day look.

* {{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.

* 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...

* 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!
