Top Ten Thursdays: The Top 10 Sexiest Britney Spears Videos
Britney Spears has been an object of desire for more than a decade. Her jailbait "...Baby One More Time" video became a salacious sensation in 1998. Shamefully, often secretively, we've followed her kinky, wacky, outrageous endeavors ever since.
If you believe the wisdom of Don Draper -- and, really, you should -- it's a simple case of, "men want her, women want to be like her." How else does one explain Spears' ongoing popularity and why you're holding a ticket to her September 2 gig at American Airlines Arena? Here are Spears' hottest videos. Enjoy them all after the jump.
Britney Spears,With Ciara and Kristinia DeBarge. Wednesday, September 2. American Airlines Arena, 601 Biscayne Blvd., Miami. Show begins at 8 p.m., tickets cost $39.50 to $577.75. Ticketmaster.com
1. "...Baby One More Time"
A 16-year-old Spears sports pigtails, schoolgirl outfit, a blouse tied above the mid-drift and sings, "my loneliness is killing me." Nabokov grins. Millions of grown men suddenly feel very creepy.
Spears does an outstanding job of igniting every man's horniest fantasy about the Mile High Club.
5. "I'm a Slave 4 You"
"I know I might be young, but I have feelings, too, and I need to do, what I feel like doing," Spears intones at the beginning of this steamy 2001 clip. Her insistence that men view her as a woman (read: sexual object) is laughable and woman studies rightfully have a field day dissing her -- but the video, the video: If it's sex your peddling, you just can't go wrong with banging bodies, the starlet in red bra-n-leather pants and group grope shots.
7. "Piece of Me"
Spears looks simply stunning -- and terrifically tough -- in this popping jab at the paparazzi.
9. "My Prerogative"
Spears emerges unharmed from a car crash in the pool -- and that's impressive -- but the black and white bit featuring her rolling around half-naked in bed is most memorable. It's a blunt but successful homage to her biggest influence, Madonna.
