She even complimented her ultimate rival at the time, Christina Aguilera.

Christina's "Genie In A Bottle" landed at number seven on the countdown. Fun fact: Christina guest-hosted "TRL" the following day.

When asked if she was dating anyone in 'N Sync, Britney replied, "No, the rumors are not true. He's a cutie, and he's really sweet. But, no. We're not going out. We're just friends. I wish!" But the fan didn't ask if she was dating Justin Timberlake, who Britney was describing, just any member of 'N Sync. Hmm.


Then, Britney tried to relate to Method Man and Redman.

The rappers, whom Melissa called "The Method Men," were there to promote their new album, "Blackout!" Eight years later, Britney released an album with the same name.

And then, Melissa grossed out Britney.

That was Britney's reaction to finding out Melissa had to make out with co-star Adrian Grenier on the first day they met. Britney was only 17 at the time.
