  1. Hello everyone! Welcome to Round 3 of Female Artists of the 21st Century: YEAR 2002 EDITION! So how exactly does this game work? It’s simple! What I have done is gathered the 20 biggest female artists from each pertaining year, by taking into factors such as sales, awards, tour gross, chart success, streaming, worldwide impact, influence and relevancy. Next to each artist will include their most commercially successful single from that respective year. For example, Overprotected was Britney's most successful single from the year 2002, therefore I'm Not a Girl, Not Yet a Woman, I Love Rock 'N' Roll, Boys, and Anticipating will be omitted. BUT... Before we begin, let's tally in the votes for Round 2 so with our further ado, here's your Top 5 tracks from the year 2001 as voted by you all. So now that the Top 5 of 2001 has been revealed, let's dive into 2002!

  3. On August 29, 2002, the MTV Video Music Awards 2002 were held at the Radio City Music Hall in New York. After an opening skit, Jimmy Fallon and no other than James Brown welcomed Britney Spears onstage, who introduced Michael Jackson and then, the two of them presented the winner of the Best Pop Video category (No Doubt). Before that, Britney gave Michael a special award as a way of recognition for his birthday, however, Michael misinterpreted her words and believed he was getting honored as the Artist of the Millennium (it's not like he was far from that though). Britney was nominated for three categories that night, but didn't win any of them: Best Female Video (I'm a Slave 4 U) - lost to Pink's Get This Party Started Best Dance Video (I'm a Slave 4 U) - lost to Pink's Get This Party Started too Best Choreography (I'm a Slave 4 U, Wade Robson) - lost to Kylie Minogue's Can't Get You Out of My Head (Michael Rooney) This was the first VMA's ceremony that didn't count with a live performance by Britney Spears since her debut in 1999.
  4. July 28, 2002 marked the last show from her Dream Within a Dream Tour in support of her album Britney. The last two concerts took place in Mexico City at the Foro Sol venue, however the last show had to be cancelled after only performing a few songs, due to a lightning storm which was very dangerous for the public and crew, as we can see on the Stages documentary. This is from July 27 During the time she was in Mexico, she did several interviews But probably the most controversial of all things, even more so than the cancellation of the show, was the now known as "Britney Señal" which refers to her flipping the middle finger to the paparazzi upon her arrival. To this day, people in Mexico still refer to that gesture as "la Britney Señal" especially on the media. It's like a term of endearment, but people really remember it as something funny, rather than taking it as an insult. But at the time, of course the press tried to make it a huge deal. Then we have that infamous press conference as well. She was treated very poorly by the reporters that attended the conference, who were very rude and disrespectful to her (something typical of the local media who were, and still are, used to treat celebrities without any respect to their privacy). During those times, the media, especially the one dedicated to gossip TV shows and magazines, were out of control and thought they had every right to invade public figures' lives, which is why I believe Mexican celebrities feel more empathic towards Britney these days. Later in the year, a documentary called Stages: Three Days in Mexico, was released showing Britney's stay in the country and it was accompanied by a photo book. In commemoration of this date, Britney's Vault has released a collection of previously unseen outtakes that you can check here:
  5. On June 17, 2002, Britney Spears released the Boys (Co-Ed Remix) video featuring Pharrell Williams. Boys would later be released as the last single (in most regions) off her third studio album Britney, and it was also included in the soundtrack album Austin Powers in Goldmember: Music from the Motion Picture. The video was directed by Dave Meyers, who had previously directed Lucky in 2000. Besides Pharrell Williams who's featured on the remix, in the video Mike Myers also guest stars as Austin Powers, and additional cameos by DJ Qualls, Jason Priestly, Justin Bruening and Taye Diggs can be seen throughout the video. Boys was nominated at the 2003 MTV Video Music Awards for Best Video from a Film, but lost to Eminem's Lose Yourself. It landed on MTV Latin America's Top 100 of 2002 at #18.
  6. El 21 de mayo de 2002, dos álbumes de dos divas del pop latinoamericano fueron lanzados a la venta: Thalía - el séptimo álbum de estudio y segundo álbum homónimo de Thalia (después de Thalía 1990) Vértigo - cuarto álbum de estudio de Fey, y primero en editarse completamente en inglés además de español Thalía Su séptimo álbum vio gran éxito con temas como Tú y Yo, y los que se convertirían en sus clásicos, la balada No Me Enseñaste y el himno de la diversidad ¿A Quién Le Importa?, cover de Alaska y Dinarama. Una producción ejecutiva de Thalia misma, cuenta con la colaboración de Estéfano, Emilio Estefan, Cory Rooney, entre otros. The Mexican (Dance Dance), colaboración con Marc Anthony fue el cuarto sencillo, cuyo remix se incluiría también en Thalía (2003), el primer álbum en inglés que se lanzaría un año más tarde. Un lyric video será estrenado en su canal de YouTube el día de mañana. Tú y Yo también se lanzaría en versión cumbia a dueto con los Kumbia Kings. Vértigo La historia de Vértigo por el otro lado, no es tan alegre. El incomprendido álbum pasaría a convertirse en un álbum de culto entre los seguidores de Fey, quienes lo catalogan como su mejor material discográfico. Fey venía de lanzar tres exitosos discos en los 90's de corte teen pop / dance, varias giras internacionales que rompieron diversos récords, contratos con marcas como Fanta, y todo resultó en una sobrecarga de trabajo. Aunado al fin que tuvo la tormentosa relación que sostuvo por años con quien fuera su manager, Mauri Stern (integrante de Magneto) y el escándalo mediático que giraba en torno a la revelación de su verdadera edad (su equipo de marketing había mentido sobre su edad desde la promoción del primer disco, asegurando que tenía 17 años cuando en realidad tenía 21), todo culminó en un retiro temporal de los escenarios tras finalizar la promoción de El Color de los Sueños en 1999. Fey se refugió en Estados Unidos durante los siguientes años, donde continuó preparándose y comenzó a escribir lo que sería su cuarto material discográfico. Originalmente compuesto y grabado en inglés, finalmente fue adaptado al español y contó con la producción de Graeme Pleeth, Robin Barter y Robert Jazayeri. El resultado fue un disco con sonido electrónico oscuro, underground, y que muchos consideran adelantado a su época. La misma Fey ha confesado que no contó con el apoyo de su disquera en ese momento, Sony Music, y el disco no logró las ventas esperadas, a pesar de la segunda reedición que tuvo el disco, con una nueva portada donde se mostraba su rostro. Tras los desacuerdos, Fey cambia de disquera a EMI, quien lanza una tercera edición del disco, con igual resultado en cuanto popularidad. Hubo varios intentos de lanzar otros sencillos como Loca Por Amarte, Noche Ideal y Alma Gemela, pero ninguno tuvo una materialización concreta. Aún así, los fans siguen atesorándolo a través de los años y las canciones de este disco siguen siendo de las más pedidas en sus recientes presentaciones.
  7. On May 08, 2002, Britney Spears released the PlayStation 2 version of Britney's Dance Beat, which had been previously released for the Game Boy Advance in March. The PC version would be released on June 19 that year. The PS2 version is an enhanced experience in every way from its predecessor, from the graphics, to the quality of the music, and the gameplay mechanics. It also contains footage from her music videos and voice acting provided by Britney herself. It was also the best rated out of the three versions, with 63.29% on GameRankings and 63/100 on Metacritic. Story-wise, the goal of the game was also modified. As opposed to the GBA version where you had to help Britney prepare for her tour, it was now the player the one that was auditioning to become her backup dancer, having to defeat several other aspirants. The blurb read: She's young, beautiful and talented. Her dance moves are as hot as her songs. But only the best dancers can join Britney Spears on her world tour. See if you have what it takes to back her up! Featuring Britney Spears, realistically transformed into 3D Choose from a variety of dancers to represent your skills Groove to Britney's hottest songs like "...Baby One More Time" and "I'm a Slave 4 U" Unlock exclusive Britney concert videos and 360º immersive videos that let you control the camera Compete in single and multi-player dance competitions Just like the GBA game, the songs featured on this one were ...Baby One More Time, Oops!...

  8. On March 26, 2002 Britney Spears released the Overprotected (Darkchild Remix) music video. The album version of the song had already been released outside of the US as the second single off her album Britney in late 2001, while the US got I'm Not a Girl, Not Yet a Woman. In early 2002, the singles were released in the opposite regions, but the remix produced by Rodney Jerkins, and described by him as "having an old-school-type rhythm", was the one sent to the American radio stations instead, on April 1st. The music video was shot at the Millennium Biltmore Hotel in Los Angeles, the first weekend of March. Chris Applebaum directed it and it was produced under A Band Apart Productions (which also produced Oops!... I Did It Again). According to Applebaum, Britney herself came up with the concept of the video and admired her impressive stamina after a marathon shoot of 23 hours that wrapped up at 5:00 AM on Monday. He also said that "the shoot went so smoothly, the most derailing obstacle was less-than-scrumptious catering". Brian Friedman was in charge of the choreography. In 2017, Chris Applebaum shared a clip of the video on his Instagram, revealing he prepped the video while on an IV drip at the hospital due to a stomach ailment, and that production designer Shel Greb drew art sketches for the sets, sitting in the chair by his bed. Joe D'Angelo from MTV News considered that the Darkchild Remix video "furthers her "I'm Not a Girl" crusade to shirk her adolescent image": The videoclip starts with Britney and her friends at a hotel room, where they're watching a reporter on the TV criticizing Britney's revealing outfits. Britney turns off the TV and convinces her friends to go outside, tricking the security guard that was watching her door to leave after calling him on the phone, disguising her voice with a towel. We then see them walking through the hallway of the hotel, in a shot that resembles Janet Jackson's Son of a Gun video, which was released a few months earlier and that was also filmed at the same hotel. A group of guys arrives at the hotel, and Britney and her pals steal their car which was parked at the entrance. Her friends are driving her to some place, when they push a button that turns the car into a limo with a dancefloor and a DJ turntable. After that, we see them back at the hotel, this time with a different outfit, for the dance break of the song. In the end we see the group of girls sneaking through an alley to get to the "Sugardawg", but they get caught by a sudden rain before they make it. They perform there the final part of the choreography, as the paparazzi that were waiting at the entrance of the club notice them, and the video finishes with now the picture of a wet Britney making the news with the same TV news reporter from the beginning. We also see some intercalated shots of Britney wearing a lime green dress, dancing by herself, throughout the videoclip. The Overprotected (Darkchild Remix) remains the only official video of Britney (not counting alternative cuts) that hasn't been uploaded to her official YouTube channel since its creation in 2009.

  10. On February 15, 2002, Crossroads was released in the United States by Paramount Pictures. The teen drama film was written by Shonda Rhimes and directed by Tamra Davis; MTV Films was in charge of the production. The film stars Britney Spears as Lucy Wagner, along with Anson Mount, Zoe Saldana, Taryn Manning, Kim Cattrall and Dan Aykroyd.

Britney Spears created the concept of the movie, which was originally titled "What Friends are For", along with her team, and this was later expanded by Shonda Rhimes. With a budget of $10M, the production of the film started in March 2001, but it only wrapped up until six months later, due to the fact that Britney was recording her third studio album. The movie was first premiered in Cannes on January 19. Britney held a press conference to talk about it. The US premiere took place in Los Angeles on February 11. The performance on the movie got Britney some nominations at the MTV Movie Awards and Teen Choice Awards, but didn't win any. She won Worst Actress and Worst Original Song at the Golden Raspberry Awards though The following months she traveled across the world to attend various premieres at different places.

  11. On February 05, 2002, Britney Spears released I'm Not a Girl, Not Yet a Woman, the third single off her Britney album (second single in the US). Max Martin and Rami Yacoub wrote and produced the song, along with additional writing from Dido. The single also served as promotion for her movie Crossroads. The song didn't perform well in the US, only reaching the #2 on the Bubbling Under chart, but it reached Top 10 in many European charts. Recorded on June 20, 2001, we were able to see a little bit from the recording session on MTV's Diary of Britney Spears: Britney said: "The song is called 'Not a Girl' and it's basically talking about, you know, I'm not a girl, but I'm not yet a woman. You're just in that transitional stage in your life where you're just figuring yourself out, and something that I can definitely relate to". Britney also explained the song was talking about growing up, and that it was going more towards her character Lucy, though she could kinda relate to that too. The only tour where Britney performed the song was the Dream Within a Dream Tour, but she performed the song live on many TV shows and awards shows too.

The Cher cover was on point!
