29 Reasons Britney Spears Was The Queen Of Music Videos

Look, we all have our opinions about "Work Bitch," but there's no denying that golden age Britney was a force in music video spectacularity. From her debut to "In the Zone" Britney brought music video art to a whole new level.

1. First things first, Britney took the schoolgirl outfit, the symbol of sexual perfection to grown adult men everywhere, and made it HERS.

Just try dressing as a sexy schoolgirl for Halloween (JK, please don't). People are going to instantly ask you if you are trying to be Britney Spears.

2. She rocked the sweatpants like nobody's business.

Like, for real, she's the reason you thought sweatpants and a sports bra were a good gym look. Whatever, wear what you want to the gym... don't tell people how to live their life.

3. She wasn't cocky about the number of people who would be in the gym watching her dance.

Like, a few who just randomly were cutting class and maybe one who forgot his swimsuit for gym that day.

5. She constantly redefined her signature color.

6. She knew how to stick to a theme!

Britney on a pier? Check. Britney sitting next to a car? Check. Britney holding a beach ball? Check. Hot guy with a dog? Check!

7. She knew about memes before we even did!

8. She wasn't afraid to cross-promote.

Melissa Joan Hart! A memorial for the greatest role Adrien Grenier ever played. This video will be in the time capsule that we send to future generations.

9. She always always showed her stomach.

Oh, look, it's that dance you learned to do from Darrin's Dance Grooves.

10. She knew the power of a good shimmy.

11. She rocked a green hat like "Yeah, whatever, I do what I want."

12. She made the compelling argument that when we find life on Mars, it's probably just gonna be human beings in red latex jumpsuits.

13. She combined the mystery of space with the allure of "Titanic."

Also, can we just talk about how the "Aww, you shouldn't have" that follows the astronaut saying he got a necklace from the bottom of the ocean is maybe her finest acting ever. She DOES NOT care about that necklace, astronaut Mike Dexter!

14. She gave us a glimpse at glamorous Hollywood life.

This may be the creepiest GIF I've ever seen. Also, this actress gets to wear her costumes at home.

15. She legit gave her character an Oscar in the "Lucky" video. And you know what, she deserves it!

Also, the Oscar ceremony is apparently held outside.

16. She proved that the best payback is sexy chair dancing and dramatically strutting across a bridge.

Seriously though, she is SO HOT in this video!

17. She knew that you have to cast LITERAL MODELS to play your boyfriends in your videos.

We haven't even gotten to "Toxic" yet.

18. She knew how to keep people happy in a heat wave (dance party, duh!)!

Fun fact: this is all her own sweat (JK, don't quote me on that).

19. She could throw a warehouse party with the best of 'em.

20. She realized that what she did was pure genius artwork.

Booth Jonathan would be crazy impressed.

21. She used her locations as a metaphor for her emotions.

22. She adapted her style when she sang a cover.

I'm not gonna lie, I have no memory of this video.

23. She easily juggled both cross-promoting Austin Powers and collaborating with Pharrell.

"I'm from N.E.R.D./Aren't you Britney?"

24. She knew how to work it with her hair!

OK yeah yeah, she also knew how to take advantage of a situation and almost kiss Madonna in this video too.

25. She immortalized this move, forever!

27. She also really took advantage of the popularity of "Alias"!

28. She... I mean, come on, we all watched the "Making the Video." FLAWLESS!

If you didn't watch it, check it out here! Tyson will thank you.

29. She super strategically used that kabbalah bracelet.

OK, so I guess the story is supposed to be that one of those photographers hit her head (or you know, some of that broken glass did). However, when we initially saw the red bracelet on her wrist, didn't we all believe something else had gone down? Just me then? Hmm...
