You know, when I was younger I was kind of silly about music. I really liked everything, with a bent for the heavier musings of Metallica, Nine Inch Nails, and Marilyn Manson. However, I was a music video nerd and I appreciated fun and interesting music videos. I also had a thing for chicks who dressed provocatively like most teenagers do today and when Britney Spears popped onto my television with her first music video, I was enjoying the catchy tune and of course, the school girl outfit. (Who would have thunk that America’s teen bomb shell pop singer would go on to record such hits like “Gimme More” that starts out with “It’s Britney Bitch!”).
