Justin Timberlake still stands by his and Britney Spears’ iconic matching outfits almost two decades after they hit the red carpet dressed head-to-toe in denim. 

Every now and again, a celebrity steps out in an outfit so bold that it instantly becomes a piece of history; a representation of an entire era and ultimately a look they will forever be associated with.

A few examples of this spring to mind, such as Lady Gaga’s meat dress, and The Rock’s black turtleneck and bumbag.

Perhaps one of the most iconic of all time, though, is the get-up Timberlake and Spears wore to the 2001 American Music Awards.

Sure, double denim was common back in the day, but this went way beyond the limits of ‘double’. I’m sure most of you will be more than familiar with the image, but allow me to describe it, just in case it’s somehow managed to slip under your radar.

Not only did Timberlake have a denim jacket to match his jeans, but he had a denim cowboy hat to top off the ensemble. His look was complimented by Spears, who wore a full length denim dress and carried a matching denim bag.

The bold look is still talked about to this day, and it recently came up as a topic on ‎The Daily Popcast with Lance Bass, where Timberlake featured as a guest.

The singer stood by his triple denim outfit, and even claimed you could ‘kinda rock’ the same look today, though to be honest I think he’s being a bit too confident in his sense of style. I’ll admit there’s no harm in matching a denim jacket with some jeans, but I’d have to draw the line at the denim cowboy hat.

Bass agreed ‘denim on denim is kind of popular right now’, but he was hesitant to accept it as appropriate red carpet attire.

Despite Bass’ doubt, however, Timberlake and Spears’ outfits have become so infamous that other celebrities have even attempted to recreate the look, with Katy Perry and rapper Riff Raff cladding themselves in denim for the 2014 MTV Video Music Awards.

The pair nailed the look with denim dress, bag, jacket and jeans, though even Riff Raff knew to leave the hat out.

Justin had his reasons for the coordinating attire, though, explaining:

You do a lot of things when you’re young and in love. That’s what you do.

I can’t say I’ve ever persuaded my boyfriend to don an entire denim outfit in the name of love, but I’m glad Timberlake and Spears found joy in their decision!

Justin Timberlake has responded to ex-girlfriend Britney Spears calling him a ‘genius,’ and there doesn’t seem to be any bad blood between the two.

Justin and Britney were the iconic couple of the 2000s – please refer to their matching denim outfits for an example – but their three-year relationship reportedly ended on a sour note.

Britney went on to marry Kevin Federline in 2004 before breaking up three years later, while JT didn’t walk down the aisle until 2012 to marry Jessica Biel.

But, nearly 20 years on, Britney has dubbed her ex-boyfriend a ‘genius’ while sharing a video of her dancing to his song Filthy.

She also mentions the elephant in the room that was their relationship, and called it one of the ‘world’s biggest breakups’.

Taking to Instagram to share the clip yesterday, April 15, the 38-year-old singer wrote:

This is my version of Snapchat or TikTok or whatever the cool thing you’re supposed to do these days!!!!! As you can see I’m not really dancing folks …… I’m just very bored. PS I know we had one of the world’s biggest breakups 20 years ago …… but hey the man is a genius !!!! Great song JT !!!! Pssss if you KNOW WHAT’S GOOD

You can see it for yourself here:

After several people commented and tagged the popstar’s former flame in the post, Justin then commented on the clip himself.

Fortunately, JT’s comment didn’t go unseen.

Keeping it short and sweet, JT simply replied with a cry-laughing face emoji and three praise hands, because who needs words when you’ve got emojis.

Justin wasn’t the only celebrity to comment on the post, as Britney’s sister Jamie-Lynn commented on it too, telling her older sister she looked cute.

Jamie-Lynn’s comment read, ‘Blogs are already plotting their outrageous stories…. you keep having fun and looking cute tho!! [sic]’.

I guess that mean they aren’t getting back together anytime soon? BRB while I cry myself a river.

If you’re anything at all like me then you are currently escaping reality through Tiger King, a stranger-than-life docuseries packed full of surprises.

Even after you’ve whizzed through each hair-raising episode, it would appear there are still plenty of things to learn about the unforgettable individuals at the heart of the story.

For example, it has now come to light that none other than Doc Antle was part of Britney Spears’ iconic 2001 performance at the VMAs.

Call the police.

A post shared by Evan Ross Katz (@evanrosskatz) on

With a truly wild show that surely wouldn’t pass health and safety standards today, a young Britney performed her raunchy hit I’m a Slave 4 U accompanied by various animals, as shown in throwback pics shared by writer Evan Ross Katz.

The most talked about creature from the legendary moment was, of course, Banana – the huge yellow snake Britney arranged around her shoulders like a living scarf.

Banana would go on to become burned into pop culture consciousness forever; remembered as one of Britney’s most famous collaborators. However, there was another animal onstage that evening – a tiger accompanied by a certain long-haired handler.

This handler was of course Doc Antle, who in the show confirmed that he had provided his unique services to several music videos and performances in his career, as well as to Hollywood blockbusters such as Ace Ventura: Pet Detective; Mighty Joe Young; and Dr. Dolittle.

Check out this classic Britney performance for yourself below:

Although it may seem fairly bonkers that the 60-year-old zoo owner failed to mention he had been present at such a seminal Britney moment, this is the sort of casual curve ball Tiger King viewers have become accustomed to.

And – astonishingly – this isn’t the only time Britney has been connected with the eccentric big cat fanatics of the surreal series.

In 2002, just one year after her I’m a Slave 4 U performance, Britney returned to the VMAs and was this time seated right next to the one and only Carole Baskin, who was of course clad head to toe in leopard print for the occasion.

In the space of just one week, Britney has claimed to be a faster runner than Usain Bolt and has emerged as a key player in this stripey saga. We are living in strange times indeed…

You can watch Tiger King: Murder, Mayhem and Madness on Netflix now.

A Coffee Machine Is Going Viral For Sounding Exactly Like Britney Spears

I have a very flat, monotone singing voice and am all too used to being out-sung by more musical friends when it comes to karaoke nights. However, I never thought I’d see the day when a coffee machine possessed a better singing voice than me, with the ability to carry at least a half-recognisable tune.

I have a very flat, monotone singing voice and am all too used to being out-sung by more musical friends when it comes to karaoke nights.

However, I never thought I’d see the day when a coffee machine possessed a better singing voice than me, with the ability to carry at least a half-recognisable tune. And what a tune it is.

From Princess of Pop to iconic songstress, Britney Spears has influenced generations of singers with her catchy lyrics and raspy vocal chords. And it’s apparently not just humans who regularly find themselves humming along to a Britney gem…

Britney SpearsPA

A woman from Pennsylvania has gone viral after realising the coffee machine at her hotel sounded uncannily like Britney belting out a rendition of classic female empowerment track, Stronger.

Philadelphia based comedian Sam tweeted footage of the coffee machine which – despite lacking a slinky blank belly top – appeared to be channelling the early noughties spirit of the Louisiana pop sensation.

In a tweet which has since been liked well over 42,000 times, Sam wrote:

The coffee machine at my hotel sounds just like the intro to Stronger by Britney Spears.

Check out this rising star’s debut below:

People have rapidly fallen for this ambitious little coffee machine, which really should be given its own tiny yet brightly lit stage in Las Vegas.

Britney Stans flocked from all corners of Twitter to demand their Queen be released from the machine. And the coffee jokes, of course, poured in.

One person guffawed:

How would you like your coffee? STRONGER THAN YESTERDAY!

Another jested:

Coffee machine could have been on a remix or something.

See if you clock any similarities with this absolute classic of a millennium-era music vid:

Bizarrely, it would appear other coffee machines across the globe also have strikingly similar vocal chords to Ms Spears, begging the question as to who influenced whom to begin with.

One person tweeted:

Every time someone in my work puts on the coffee machine it sounds like the start of Britney’s Stronger!

Another claimed:

Our coffee machine sounds like the beginning of Britney Spears’ Stronger… and although I’m excited for the coffee, I’d prefer if somebody was actually playing Britney.

Britney herself has yet to comment on her new rival. It’s unclear at the time of writing whether the two divas will be heading off on a caffeine fuelled tour together, or whether this plucky machine will be branching out with her own material.
