Britney Spears to Perform New Song At VMAs

Lets relive the most iconic Britney Spears performance: 2001's "I'm A Slave 4 U."

It was June 8, 2001 and Jamie Foxx was hosting MTV's Video Music Awards at the Metropolitan Opera House in New York City. We were all going about our business, and then the first couple notes of Britney Spears' "I'm a Slave 4 U" come on and all of our attention hits the TV.

To this point, we've all seen Britney Spears perform, so why should THIS one be any different? Well, because it was. The lights shine down on Brit and she is of course in a cage, with a tiger, singing as if there was not a human eating animal 2 inches away. That's just Britney.

We could go into a full analysis of the video (THE YELLOW SNAKE WRAPPED AROUND HER NECK), but instead, why not just watch it for yourself and and soak in all the "Glory"...get it?

Life changed? Yeah, we thought it would be. Don't forget to tune in August 28th at 9 P.M. EST to catch Britney hit the stage again!
