    Lowkey makes me depressed that 2011 was ten years ago... I remember when this song/video came out, AND when the album came out. All the leaks prior to the album dropping... so many memories.

    :crying1_britney_sobbing_tears_2006_sad: I was in my last year of high school, I feel so old :fakecry_christina_aguilera_xtina_crying_tears_wipe_sad:

    I remember that last semester we used to have so many free hours between classes and I would go to the school's cafeteria, and all the videos they would play would be so good, like, not just Britney, but all the other pop acts were releasing great stuff. Also that tv channel, I think it was Fuse, would always do Britney marathons and my classmates would shout to me to run to the cafeteria and watch it :bop_beyonce_dancing_yes_Yas_cheer_party_glasses:

    Then the second semester of 2011 I entered college, and all the fun was gone :dead_falling_wig_dying: but I still got Criminal towards the end of the year :wendy_williams_bop_listen_music:
