  1. On May 16, 2000, Britney Spears released in the United States her second studio album, Oops!... I Did It Again. The album had already been released in Japan on May 03, and Austria, Germany and Switzerland on May 15. Preceded by its lead single of the same name, which came out a month prior, Oops!... I Did It Again debuted at #1 on the Billboard Hot 100, getting the #1 in 20 charts around the world, #2 in six other countries and #5 in Italy. It broke the record for the biggest first-week sales by a female artist ever in the US, with 1, 319, 193 copies sold, a record she held until 2015, when Adele released 25. It reportedly sold over 500,000 copies just during the first day. It still holds the record for biggest first-year sales by a female, with 7.89 million copies sold in 2000, landing at #4 in the year-end chart of that year. It also appeared on the year-end chart again in 2001 at #28. Oops!... I Did It Again was also the #6 most sold album of the 00's. It became her second album to receive the Diamond certification from the RIAA. Much as its predecessor, Oops!... I Did It Again is a teen pop / dance pop album, though it has more influences of funk and R&B, with an overall more mature and aggressive tone. Whereas ...Baby One More Time was filled by mostly bubbly ballads and heartbreak songs, Oops! has a more adult sound with tracks like Don't Let Me Be the Last to Know or Where Are You Now, and its mid-tempos gravitate towards the empowerment, in tunes like Oops!... I Did It Again, Don't Go Knockin' on My Door, What U See (Is What U Get), or the Rolling Stones cover (I Can't Get No) Satisfaction, with Stronger even nodding at her debut single by revealing her "loneliness ain't killing her no more". However, it doesn't completely leave aside the sweet melodies that characterized her debut album, with songs like One Kiss from You, Dear Diary or the bonus track Heart. The album was mainly produced by Max Martin and Rami Yacoub, but it counted with the collaborations of Rodney "Darkchild" Jerkins, Jake Schulze, Mutt Lange, Per Magnusson, David Kreuger, Steve Lunt, Larry "Rock" Campbell, Kristian Lundin, Rober Jazayeri, Paul Umbach, Timmy Allen, Barry J. Eastmond and Eric Foster White, the latter of which produced You Got It All, a cover from The Jets, which was originally recorded for her debut album. Most of the producers also provided the lyrics of the tracks, but additional songwriters include Alexander Kronlund, Mick Jagger and Keith Richards (for the Satisfaction cover), Shania Twain (for Don't Let Me Be the Last to Know), Keith Scott, Jörgen Elofsson, Andreas Carlsson, Diane Warren (When Your Eyes Say It), Jason Blume, Eugene Wilde, Rupert Holmes (You Got It All) and George Teren. Britney herself co-wrote Dear Diary. The album was recorded in 1999 after her ...Baby One More Time Tour finished, most of the recording taking place in November. The recordings took place between New York, Hollywood, Orlando, Sweden and Switzerland. The first songs to be recorded at the Cheiron Studios in Stockholm were Oops!... I Did It Again, Walk on By, What U See (Is What U Get) and Don't Go Knockin' on My Door, followed by Stronger and Lucky, which along with Oops!, weren't finalized until January. Don't Let Me Be the Last to Know was recorded in December at Robert "Mutt" Lange's villa in Switzerland. Girl in the Mirror and Can't Make You Love Me were recorded in mid-January at Parc Studios in Orlando, Florida. She then recorded When Your Eyes Say It and One Kiss from You in New York, along with Dear Diary and Heart. Finally, in late February she recorded (I Can't Get No) Satisfaction at Pacific Recording Studios in Hollywood, California. You Got It All and Where Are You Now were outtakes from her debut album. Four singles were released in order to promote the album: Oops!... I Did It Again, Lucky, Stronger and Don't Let Me Be the Last to Know. She also embarked on a world tour, the Oops!... I Did It Again Tour, that lasted from June 20, 2000 through January 18, 2001. For the release of the album she held a special presentation in Tokyo and Paris, and she also made several appearances on MTV and other TV shows in the United States. The day of the release, she appeared on TRL to talk about the record, and she was signing some CD's for her fans. A week earlier, she recorded the "First Listen" of the album, where they played a preview of each of the tracks. The album was released on vinyl in 2019, and it got a new cassette release in 2020 for its 20th anniversary.

You can also see some footage of her in Hawaii here at the beginning and around 3:30
  8. so this is going to sound extremely random lmao but i so vividly remember there being a bootleg audio of the full oops tour in detroit. during crazy in the breakdown where she shouts out the city’s name and gets the crowd to sing back to her, she rapped the sin city rap instead aka the rap from her episode of punk’d on mtv in 2003. it was a little bizarre too because she didn’t even censor it. i’m 99% sure she still dropped the f bomb in it. i so desperately want to find that audio again because i remember having it soooo long ago on an old computer back when britney boards was a big thing. does anyone else know what i’m talking about or am i completely insane and making this up? lol Update: Britney Online has shared the audio from the Michigan concert that contains the rap

  12. On April 17, 2000, Britney Spears appeared on Top of the Pops Germany, hosting the show along with Oliver Geissen. At the end she talks a little bit about what she does for Easter and her album Oops!... I Did It Again. She also recorded a performance of Oops!... I Did It Again, though I ignore if it was broadcasted that day in Germany, because apparently it was also shown in the UK through BBC in May. Those TOTP performances are always so confusing to track @CJMCH
  13. On March 27, 2000 Britney Spears released Oops!... I Did It Again, the lead single off her second studio album of the same name, hitting the Top 40 radio. She had already performed the song live during a concert of her Crazy 2k Tour, on March 08. Oops!... I Did It Again was written and produced by Max Martin and Rami Yacoub and it was recorded in late 1999, along with most of the tracks of the album, at the Cheiron Studios in Stockholm. Max Martin himself and Nana Hedin provided background vocals for the track, which is very similar in style to her debut single ...Baby One More Time. However, contrary to the 1998 anthem in which she sung about dying from loneliness due to an unrequited love, in Oops! she's the one playing with the guy's feelings, who thinks she's in love, but she instead reveals not being that innocent. After the second chorus, there's a spoken break with a dialog between the two, which makes a reference to the 1997 film Titanic. It peaked at #9 on the Billboard Hot 100 while hitting the #1 position on the Pop Songs chart. In Australia and New Zealand it went #1, as well as in most of the European countries it charted, with other positions being not lower than Top 5, receiving multiple Platinum and Gold certifications in those regions. It was nominated for Best Female Pop Vocal Performance at the 43rd Annual Grammy Awards in 2001. As of March 2021, the song has over 368M+ streams on Spotify, her fourth most listened track on the platform. The European, Australian and Japanese maxi singles included Deep in My Heart as its B-side, a track previously released in some versions of her first album, as well as a remix of previous single From the Bottom of My Broken Heart. Other versions included the official instrumental and several remixes such as the Music Breakdown Mix and the Rodney Jerkins (Darkchild) Remix. On TRL, Britney talked a little bit about the song, confessing to a fan that the part about the Titanic reference was mostly done in a sarcastic way, and also talked about the meaning behind the "not that innocent" phrase: Britney performed the song live in numerous TV shows: The most memorable of them all, the 2000 VMA's: From her tours, she performed the son during the Crazy 2k Tour, the Oops!... I Did It Again Tour, Dream Within a Dream Tour and The Onyx Hotel Tour, the latter of which received a cabaret arrangement. She wouldn't perform the song again until 2013, when she included it on her Piece of Me residency in Las Vegas, as well as the 2017 and 2018 tours. An iconic music video for the song where she dances on Mars was directed by Nigel ****, but we'll celebrate its anniversary next month. The song has been covered many times by different artists, including the TV series Glee It was also included in her appearance on Carpool Karaoke in 2016 Happy 21st anniversary Oops!... I Did It Again
  14. On April 10, 2000, Britney Spears released the Oops!... I Did It Again music video, the lead single off her second studio album of the same name. Wearing the instantly classic red catsuit, the music video went on to become one of the most iconic music videos of her career, and pop culture in general, with a space theme that jumped on the futuristic trend of the beginning of the millennium and a distinctive choreography that made all the viewers try to dance along to the song. Oops!... I Did It Again was directed by Nigel ****, who had already worked on her first three music videos: ...Baby One More Time, Sometimes and (You Drive Me) Crazy. It was filmed in March in Universal City, California. It was a success around the world, becoming a staple on MTV's TRL countdown and in Latin America, on MTV's Los 10 + Pedidos, where it was also voted as the #1 video of the year 2000, as well the overall #1 at the 2000's decade Top 100 countdown that took place in 2009. The video starts with an astronaut walking on Mars as the scientists back on the Earth station are communicating with him. He finds a picture of Britney buried in the ground, and suddenly a whole city emerges surprising the astronaut. Britney makes her entrance descending from a platform wearing the red catsuit, and starts singing the song, including the choreography during the chorus. She eventually suspends the guy in mid-air and we now see her lying barefoot on a white pad, wearing a white crop-top and skirt. For the breakdown of the song, Britney flips in the air to land where the astronaut is and he gives her a jewel as a symbol of his love, as they say the spoken interlude that references the Titanic necklace while the people on the Earth station watch the scene. She takes it and walks away, and the astronaut leaves defeated. Britney continues to perform the song until the end. You can find the transcript of the video treatment here. Despite the obvious hint at Britney "not being that innocent" that we get in the song's chorus, Nigel recalls that the video wasn't strategized as such in an interview he gave to MTV for the 20th anniversary of the clip: In an interview Britney had during a showcase in Japan, she was asked about how she came up with the concept of the video: "Actually, I love the whole futuristic thing with me going to Mars and everything, and it's never been done before! And no one's been ever dancing on Mars, so that's what made me come up with the idea. [...] Because the song has so much energy, I definitely had to incorporate my dancing, of course". The MTV crew was at the videoshoot filming an episode of Making the Video. In it, Britney talks about the meaning of the song: "The song is basically about a girl. All these guys fall in love with her, and she just can't help it. When I meet a guy that I'm seriously attracted to, I get butterflies in my stomach, I get a total brain fart, and I don't know what to say." (16 years later though, she'd forget about all that and say "I think it's just a song " ) "This is Mars. You own Mars, you are the Queen of Mars. This is your city and these are your subjects. You're here to dazzle them." Nigel would tell Britney while directing her in the filming of the video. The now iconic red catsuit was a last minute decision. It turns out that the day before the shoot, Britney called Michael Bush, a designer who had worked for Michael Jackson in the 80's and 90's, and told him she wanted a different suit. Nigel says: For its 20th anniversary, Britney remembered the outfit being "freaking hot" though the dancing being fun made the shoot fly by. The red suit has become one of the most representative of Britney, being worn by fans and included in many different media. In 2016, Kevin Bacon wore a similar outfit for an Apple ad, were Britney also made a cameo, and in 2020, Mexican singer Thalia also paid tribute to the look in a Tik Tok video she did during the shoot of her Ten Cuidao music video. Funko has also announced a Pop! Rocks series figurine inspired on the Oops outfit, set to be released later this year. The red catsuit was also on display at Planet Hollywood during her Las Vegas residency from 2013 to 2017. In the various interviews Nigel has done, he also talks about one of the other outfits, the white one, and how that was a decision made on set too. Britney had chosen a more revealing outfit to wear, but Nigel told her to go back to the trailer and find something different, which apparently Britney didn't like a lot: He talked a bit further for the Rolling Stone Music Now podcast: MTV News pointed out at the various men that we see in the Oops!... I Did It Again video: "The video featured a gaggle of buff, shirtless guys operating mysterious levers in the background of Brit's lair — in one cute scene from Making the Video, the pop star giggles, 'I don't know their names but they're hotties! I don't mind looking at them!' " Another man, the protagonist of the space romance, Eli Swanson, was the actor who played the astronaut that tried to conquer Britney's heart, after his head almost exploded when losing his helmet, only to be rejected by the ruler of Mars. He then goes back home, not before doing the moonwalk (or Marswalk?). Britney met him on set after Nigel selected him to portray the character. Swanson used to be a model for Ralph Lauren, Nike and Adidas, but eventually quit the business to become an orthopedic surgeon. Apparently he changed so much, that Britney didn't recognize him during a 2013 Superfan Showdown on ET. Speaking of which, the spoken interlude scene (which is not voiced by him) that's the peak of Eli's acting career, didn't make a lot of sense for the director of the video. However, the man the stole the video according to Nigel, was the one at the control booth back on Earth: Without a doubt, a main component of the videoclip is its dance moves. It was choreographed by Tina Landon, and it includes the classic "heart move" that everyone remembers. Not too long after the video was out, her fans already had memorized the steps, and Britney even danced along with one lucky fan during an MTV special. Tina also released a video where she teaches the choreography for the chorus of the song. Perhaps Britney could watch it again, who in 2013 said she had forgotten about it in a Good Morning America interview after her Desert Performance Las Vegas residency announcement. Another well known incident during the filming of the video, was a head injury Britney had while doing the scene where she's lying on the ground and a part of the camera fell off, landing on her head. At the time, Lynne Spears, Britney's mom, wrote on her website that Britney began bleeding and they had to call a doctor that put her stitches. After four hours of rest, she was ready to go back to shoot the rest of the video. But Lynne says that after the videoshoot wrapped up, she flew to Michigan where she slept for 17 hours, before performing there the next day. Lynne said: Nigel **** clarified the situation for MTV: Britney herself also talked about it in 2012, calling it a very bizarre experience: In 2012 there was also a Twitter exchange between Britney and the NASA: Which was continued in 2020 Nigel really praises Britney's professionalism, recalling the amount of effort they all put on rehearsals, as well as the stunt she had to film with a harness, in front of the green screen: However, he's also mentioned how much things have changed from the first video he did for her, to the time they did Oops!... I Did It Again, and how she was surrounded already by this huge fame machine The video received four VMA's nominations in 2000: Best Female Video, Best Dance Video, Best Pop Video, and the Viewer's Choice, but it didn't win any of them. In June 2016, the video surpassed the 100M views mark on her official YouTube channel, becoming the 11th video of hers to do so. However, in recent years, it got a rapid increase in views, currently being the fifth most watched video on her channel, with over 300M views. Alternative footage of the video was released on her Greatest Hits: My Prerogative DVD in 2004: Related:

  23. On November 13, 2000, Britney Spears released Stronger, the third single off her second studio album Oops!... I Did It Again. Written and produced by Max Martin and Rami Yacoub, the teen-pop song serves as a self-empowerment anthem that talks about a girl leaving behind her cheating boyfriend. The song alludes to ...Baby One More Time, Britney's debut single, (another Max Martin song) in its chorus: my loneliness ain't killing me no more. Acclaimed by the music critics as arguably the best song on the album, Stronger peaked at #11 on the BBH100 and #17 at the Top 40 Mainstream chart, while being Top 10 in many European lists. It is Britney's third best sold physical single in the US. Walk on By, a song that didn't make the final album tracklist, was released with Stronger as a "B-side". Stronger was performed at the Oops!... I Did It Again World Tour, the Dream Within a Dream Tour and Britney: Piece of Me Las Vegas residency (as well as the tours that derived from it). It was also performed on several TV shows to promote the single, including the American Music Awards, an it was even part of the festival sets Britney did in 2016 to promote her album Glory. Several remixes of the song were released, including an EP. The music video for the song was released days earlier.
  24. On November 2, 2000, Britney Spears released the Stronger music video, the third single off her second studio album Oops!... I Did It Again. It was shot from October 5 - 7, and it was directed by Joseph Kahn, being this the first out of 4 videos she would eventually do with him throughout her career (so far). In 2009, Joseph Kahn told MTV News that he considered this video to mark a departure in Britney's image and career: "I think this video is interesting because it's got a very sophisticated, adult look to it [...] It's definitely a departure from the sort of candy-colored videos she was doing before, so I always thought this was the transition between Britney the teenage pop star and Britney the sort of diva she became." He revealed the original concept was created by Britney "For 'Stronger,' she said, 'I would like to dance in a chair and drive in a car and break up with [my] boyfriend. Those are your three elements.' And then, as a director, you go, 'OK, well, how do I make that cool?'" He's also noticed the influence of Janet Jackson's videos such as The Pleasure Principle and Miss You Much for the video's chair routine: "She pitched it to me as an original concept by herself, but the first thing that came to my mind when I thought of the chair sequence, in terms of how it applies to music videos, was Janet Jackson's 'Pleasure Principle' — the iconic chair sequence in that." In 2019, he talked about his original concept for the video in an interview he did for Indy Mogul: "The first time I met her on the Stronger video, I had this entire idea of like pitching like this big thing with a dragon, and dancing in the rain and soldiers and all this stuff, and she's listening, she's listening, I go through my whole pitch and then she looks at me and goes 'I was thinking about dancing in a chair'". The video takes place in a futuristic world where Britney walks into a club to find out her boyfriend cheated on her, so she breaks up with him and leaves, driving away, walking in the rain over a bridge, while we also see alternating scenes of her doing the chair routine choreography. There was a bit of controversy on set with Britney's manager over a particular scene he shot: "There's a shot here where I'm tracking with her, and her legs are spread, and Larry [Rudolph], the manager, was like, 'Don't do that.' And she was like, 'Yes, definitely do that.' " The MTV article also reveals another aspect of the video Kahn was insistent upon, Britney's silver eyeshadow: "One of the big things I wanted to do here, that I was just obsessed with ... I know it sounds really strange, but I wanted her to have gray eye shadow, and I think it looks really good. I remember when I was looking at the close-ups, Britney goes, 'You're really obsessed with this gray eye shadow!' and I go, 'Yes, absolutely.' But if you look at it, it just makes her eyes pop like crazy." The music video was nominated at the VMA's 2001 for Best Pop Video, but lost to *NSync's Pop. Stronger appeared at #71 on the yearly Top 100 of MTV Latin America in 2000, but it reappeared the next year claiming the top position. In October 2019, the music video surpassed the 100M views on her official YouTube channel, becoming her 21st video in achieving that feat.
  25. On June 20, 2000 Britney launched her 3rd tour titled after he 2nd album Oops I Did It Again in Columbia, Maryland! The tour ran till January 18, 2001 and consisted of 88 shows. The most she has done is any of her previous tours at this time. The set list was comprised of 12 songs and a encore, including "(You Drive Me) Crazy" "Stronger" "What U See (Is What U Get)" "From the Bottom of My Broken Heart" "Born to Make You Happy" "Lucky" "Sometimes" "Don't Let Me Be the Last to Know" "The Beat Goes On" "Don't Go Knockin' on My Door" "(
