There are a few professional clips floating around from this concert that were aired in Japan. All of the clips feature ACTUAL REAL LIVE VOCALS (!!!).

3. The full "Outrageous" music video should have been completed, and the song should have been released as a single.

They should have shot some B-roll or something. That Snoop Dogg plotline is such a mystery.

Her best, most underrated ballad.

11. Basically, all of the Britney bonus tracks should have been on the actual CD.

12. Same with Circus and Femme Fatale.

"Selfish," "Up N Down," "Phonography," and "Rock Me In." YES, PLEASE.

13. Blackout should have been a No. 1 album. Fuck the Eagles.

Britney got screwed when Billboard changed their rules last minute to include sales from private retailers.

16. The full "Rebellion" should just be released already.

Everything about "Gimme More" needs an explanation.

19. The early-2000s radio ban.

There is a rumor that Britney's music was blacklisted from radio in the early 2000s. Basically none of her music from Britney charted on top 40 radio. "Slave" should have been a MASSIVE HIT!

20. "Break the Ice" deserved a proper video.

Ban that animated shit.

21. Britney deserved VMAs for "Toxic," "Slave," "Baby," etc. It's a joke that she won them for "Piece of Me."

A lit'ral actual joke.

23. Britney Jean should not have been touted as "her most personal yet" because nope.

24. "Joy of Pepsi" deserved a proper single release too.

25. "And Then We Kiss" deserved a proper single release.

Also iconic.

32. The fact that there are NO music videos featuring Brunetteney.

36. The original concept for the Femme Fatale album should have happened.

Rumor has it, Femme Fatale was supposed to be an album filled with mid-tempos with a "hard hip-hop edge." Then Dr. Luke got involved.

37. She should have kept "Telephone."
