Britney Spears' Lyrics Are Actually Really Deep, So What Do Your Favorite Lines Say About You?
Generally speaking, pop music isn't known for its lyrical brilliance, but some of Britney Spears' lyrics are actually pretty deep. (Well, when you think about them for a really long time and then get super duper creative with your interpretations, anyway.) From "...Baby One More Time" to "Perfume," the 33-year-old singer has definitely uttered some memorable lines over the last 16 years, and believe it or not, a person's favorite Britney Spears' lyrics can reveal a lot about them.
For example, is "Gimme More" your jam? Are you still saying "It's Britney, bitch!" every time you arrive at a party? Are you shocked when you're not met with the uproarious laughter and high fives you were expecting? You may have a serious problem. (Just kidding! Well, sort of... more on that later.)
Or do you love “Sometimes”? Do the words hit a little too close to home? Are you constantly running away and hiding when all you really want is to hold someone tight? You may have a habit of writing frustratingly cryptic Facebook statuses (a.k.a. "vaguebooking"). See? Spears is one wise pop star. (OK, I know she doesn’t often write her own songs, but you know what I mean.)
Check out some of the legendary hit-maker’s most memorable lines below. What do your favorite Britney Spears lyrics say about you?
"Oh, baby, baby/How was I supposed to know?" from "...Baby One More Time"
You're incredibly forgetful. You forget about everything, from important work meetings to landmark anniversaries. You always say you're going to learn how to use the calendar on your iPhone, but more important things keep coming up, like... Trivia Crack! And Candy Crush Saga! Oh, and naps.
"All of the boys and all of the girls are begging to if you seek Amy..." from "If You Seek Amy"
You're kind of immature. ("It sounds like she's singing 'f**k me,' get it?") Nothin' makes you laugh harder than a well-timed fart joke (not that I blame you... fart jokes are hilarious).
"Oops! I did it again/I played with your heart/Got lost in the game/Oh, baby, baby..." from "Oops... I Did It Again"
You have trouble taking responsibility for your own actions. However, you've perfected the "Did I do that?" Steve Urkel approach to life, so usually, you get away with it.
"It's Britney, bitch..." from "Gimme More"
Let's face it: You're stuck in 2007. You can't let go of the Harry Potter books, and you won't stop quoting Grey's Anatomy. With each passing year, fewer and fewer people get the references. It's sad.
"Every time I try to fly, I fall/Without my wings, I feel so small/I guess I need you, baby..." from "Everytime"
I think this means you're into fairies or something. Own it.
"All eyes on me in the center of the ring just like a circus..." from "Circus"
Some people might say if these are your favorite Britney Spears' lyrics, you crave attention — but those people would be wrong. Clearly, if these are your favorite Britney Spears' lyrics, you're one of the few deranged monsters on this planet who actually likes clowns. Different strokes for different folks, I guess.
"I-I-I wanna go-go-go all the way-way-way/Takin' out my freak tonight..." from "I Wanna Go"
You have two distinct personas: Weekday you and weekend you. Weekday you packs your lunch every day for work. Smart! Weekend you says things like "Hooty hoo!" right before spilling an entire appletini on the dance floor at the bar. Tragic.
"If you really wanna battle, saddle up and get your rhythm/Tryin' to hit it chic-a-tah/In a minute, I'm a take a you on, I'm a take a you on..." from "Me Against the Music"
Congratulations! Your hearing is better than 1,000 Lassies, 'cause these lyrics are practically impossible to decipher.
"Confidence is a must/Cockiness is a plus/Edginess is a rush/Edges, I like 'em rough..." from "Radar"
Obviously, you're into bad guys/bad girls. I can relate.
"'Cause you feel like paradise/And I need a vacation tonight..." from "Hold It Against Me"
Basically, you have a near-constant case of the Mondays. No weekend or vacation is long enough to satisfy.
"This kitten got your tongue tied in knots, I see/Spit it out 'cause I'm dying for company..." from "Till the World Ends"
You're a master at flirting. See that hottie across the bar? No need to approach 'em — they'll come to you.
"You wanna live fancy?/Live in a big mansion?/Party in France?/You better work, bitch..." from "Work Bitch"
You love giving people unsolicited advice. You just can't help yourself. For example, you may not be employed right now (it's Arby's loss, to be honest), but that doesn't mean you can't give your working friends tips on how to climb the corporate ladder at their jobs! You've made a lot of mistakes in life, so you know what not to do. You're a good pal to have around.
"Outrageous!/In my sexy jeans/Outrageous!/When I'm on the scene..." from "Outrageous"
"Sexy jeans"? Who says that? Nice try, mom.
