There was a time not so long ago when Britney Spears truly ruled the world.
Not that she’s ever really gone away, but we all know and remember that she’s had some serious ups and downs over the years. From girl next door to sexiest pop star alive, from Mrs. Federline to the time she did THIS, Miss Brit has lived a few different lifetimes over the past 16 years.
Much has been with Britney from the very beginning, following her every move since she first invaded the airwaves in 1998 with Baby One More Time. We’ve also been lucky enough to interview her several times, and if you ask any VJ who sat down with her they will all tell you that she is super cool and friendly, just a down-home Southern girl at heart.
George Stroumboulopoulos interviewed Britney on November 5, 2001, the day she released her third album, Britney. She was in Toronto doing the promotional rounds, and B was truly on top of her game. She was the biggest pop star in the world, a total sex symbol, she was still dating Justin Timberlake (BS + JT 4EVA!). She’s never looked more radiant or happy.
The reason we love this interview so much is it captures a superstar at her absolute peak. Britney was never better than she was at this very moment. It’s obvious that Brit and George were vibing during this conversation, because she’s very candid and honest throughout. We’re not used to seeing Britney like this anymore, so it’s truly like a time capsule.
Sit back, relax and enjoy one of our fave interviews from the Much vault. It will definitely remind you of why we all fell in love with Britney Spears so many years ago!
