Some people tap out at age 30. Hangovers become stronger and longer (“I only had three drinks. WTF.“) getting to the gym is a chore (“I’ll wake up early tomorrow and go.”) and leaving the house in general becomes less desirable by the day (“What’s new on Netflix?”)
But not when you’re Britney Spears. Today, the songstress celebrates her 35th birthday, and after almost 20 years in the public eye, Spears continues to keep our jaws (and drawers) dropping time and time again. From barely-there bikinis to a not-so-innocent slumber party with Tinashe, Spears is proving that your mid-30s isn’t half-bad. She is living. With a little bit of confidence, we can all thrive at any age.
To celebrate her 35th, we’re looking back at the pop icon’s hottest moments in 2016. Happy birthday, Britney!
