It's Time To Recognize That Britney Spears Is The Queen Of Underestimation

A story.

They discounted her in 1999.

She sold 10.6 million albums.

Jive

They tried to get rid of her in 2000.

People

She broke records.

She was labeled "the betrayer" in 2002.

Us Weekly / usmagazine.com

Her response was one of the best ballads of the '00s, "Everytime."

Jive

She was "out of control" in 2004.

Us Weekly

Then "Toxic" happened.

Jive Records

She was supposed to fade into obscurity after she married K-Fed.

Us Weekly

That wasn't her prerogative.

RCA

Then 2007 happened...and, yeah, it was really fucked up.

Us Weekly

But, like always, she came back.

No. 1...

... after No. 1...

...hit after hit.

Britney has always been the underdog.

And yet through it all...

RCA Records

And, seriously, THROUGH IT ALL:

RCA Records

Britney has always come out, in one way or another, ON TOP.

And that's EXACTLY what Britney has done with her latest album, Glory. She has come back for the 439th time.

From Rolling Stone...

...to the L.A. Times...

...and Vanity Fair.

Everyone agrees Glory is magnificent. Britney is back.

Buuuut you know what? None of this even matters.

RCA

Britney can keep on posting pictures of her kids...

...motherfucking teacups...

...and screenshots of corn she finds on Google.

She has nothing to prove anymore.

So whether or not this album sells a million or 200 copies, who cares?

RCA

Britney Spears is making Britney Spears music again.

She's genuinely happy and there's NOTHING more thrilling than seeing that.

CBS

😭😭😭😭
