Britney Spears — While Madonna is the Queen of Pop, Britney Spears quickly took on the role of the Princess of Pop. This pop singer went from performing on “The All New Mickey Mouse Club” to singing hits like “Baby One More Time” and Oops!…I Did It Again” in her teen years.
Her presence has been considered a Pop Phenomenon, but Britney Spears has also had her questionable moments in the spotlight. After shaving her head and a few run-ins with the paparazzi, she’s become just as infamous as she is famous. This has, at least, resulted in plenty of entertaining quotes.
“Onstage I’m the happiest person in the world.”
“I go out with friends, but I don’t have time to get in trouble.”
“You’ll never see it my way, because you’re not me.”
“I don’t like defining myself. I just am.”
“Just because I look sexy on the cover of “Rolling Stone” doesn’t mean I’m naughty.”
“I’ve never really wanted to go to Japan, simply because I don’t like eating fish. And I know that’s very popular out there in Africa.”
“Smoking, drinking, sex — why is it such a big deal for me? Everything in moderation.”
“Every night I have to read a book so that my mind will stop thinking about things that I stress about.”
“I dress the way I want. I don’t pretend to be someone I’m not.”
“Chocolate, for me, is just like an orgasm.”
“I don’t want people kissing my butt. If I had a bad show and I know it, don’t tell me I had a good show. I hate that. I guess because I’m 17, people think I don’t see stuff like that.”
“I know not everyone will like me, but this is who I am, so if you don’t like it, tough!”
“Performing is what I like most. I find the studio very confining. You can do a lot in there, and you get the opportunity to try again and again, but on stage you have the adrenalin going and you’ve got one shot and the energy is so intense.”
“I don’t think I push my envelope. I think you go for things yourself and the way you really feel them. Like, it’s going to come out sooner or later. It’s exhilarating to express yourself and get the things out there that you want to say. Yeah, I think it is empowering.”
