With so much going on in the world today, you may have missed the recent milestone anniversary of one of the defining events of our generation.
It was ten years ago last week that Spears decided to go start sporting the Mr. Clean look, and while both Brit and her fans are able to have a laugh about it these days, at the time, it was taken as a troubling sign of things to come.
Many believed Spears was stuck in a downward spiral from which she would never recover.
Fortunately, these days we can see that the naysayers were as off-base as the pundits who predicted Donald Trump would be back back in Midtown Manhattan by now, ranting into a tack, gold-veined mirror by now.
Britney rebounded from her meltdown in epic fashion, and these days, she's enjoying the sort of career longevity and living legend status that most pop stars only dream of.
Britney has a Vegas residency that's bringing in some of the biggest bucks of her career.
She's dating Sam Ashgari, and friends say she's convinced he's "the one."
(Of course, she also thought that about Kevin Federline and a whole host of other d-bags, but the less said about that, the better.)
But the Britney achievement that's earning the most attention these days is the the fact that at 34, after having given birth to two kids, the singer appears to be in the best shape of her life.
As you can imagine based on the pics above, Britney has inspired many a #FitnessGoals comment on her recent photos.
She also offered fans a glimpse of her workout routine with this Instagram video:
Now, it's easy to look at celebs who are in flawless shape and think, Hey, it's their job to stay in shape! If I could afford a trainer, nutritionist, personal assistant, etc., I would have six-pack abs, too!
We don't want to rain on your parade (especially since we use those excuses ourselves on a daily basis) but Brit recently opened up about her fitness regimen, and it seems it's not particularly time-consuming:
“I like my workouts to be effective in a short amount of time,” she told People magazine.
“I start with 20 minutes of intense cardio — usually running — move on to light free weights; body-weight exercises such as push-ups, squats and situps; then finish it off with a stretch."
So maybe it's genetic?
Maybe it has something to do with the fact that her job involves running around on a hot stage while rocking 40 pounds of sequins?
We may never know for sure.
For now, we're just happy to have Britney looking healthy and sporting a full head of hair.
