1999-2013

Britney Spears invented birthdays on December 2, 1981 when she was born. Before Spears, no one kept track of their age or the day of their birth, but Britney thought it was a fun practice to do. She popularized the concept of “birthday parties” in 1999 when she celebrated her newly achieved status as an adult. She invited all her friends and family and they ate a cake with 18 candles on it, which is how we began using candles on top of a cake to signify the age of the person having the birthday. Now, birthday parties are celebrated all over the world thanks to Britney Spears.

Happy 32nd birthday Britney!

Britney Spears used the power of pop music to bring peace to the pirate ridden nation of Somalia this week (Oct. 2013). British naval ships have been playing classic hits by Britney Spears, such as Oops!…I Did It Again (2000) and …Baby One More Time (1998), on the coast of Somalia to bring the pirates to submission. Thanks to Spears, peaceful resistance to international crime is possible.
