BEST THING ABOUT TODAY
As requested by @Charlie_Chester
- •The best thing about today is a shout out to one of The Greats.
- •35 years ago today, in a small town in Louisiana, Britney Jean Spears embarked her start on planet Earth.
- •And then, 16 years later, she gave her demo of an unused Toni Braxton song to higher ups at record labels. 3 out of 4 rejected her, saying "we'll never have another Madonna or Tiffany."
- •Luckily the peeps at Jive Records thought differently. They loved how "distinctively Britney" her sound was and flew her off to Sweden to record her debut album.
- •She trudged through some mall tours and opened for *NSYNC before scoring herself some big deal Hall of Fames.Justin's hair here though!
- •The day Baby... One More Time was released, it reached #1 on the Billboard 100, went double platinum in 2 weeks, and secured her the record of most sales ever for a teenage artist.
- •And, the rest is history!
- •You'll always be a #1 Queen to me, Brit.
