The Metropolitan Museum of Art? We don’t know her.
A new museum focused squarely on the life and career of Ms. Britney Spears is up and running in Los Angeles, and In The Know was first in line to check out the 30,000-square-foot experience.
Called “The Zone,” the pop-up’s visitors move through interactive reincarnations of Britney’s most famous highlights, from her legendary 2001 performance of “I’m A Slave 4 U” — no real snakes needed — to the music video set of “Toxic,” the pop hit that won her a Grammy in 2005.
Our personal favorite installment has to be “Britney High,” a multi-room setup dedicated to “…Baby One More Time.” The coolest element is a giant digital chalkboard that repeatedly scrawls the song lyrics. A must-have! How do we get one for ourselves?! There’s also a mechanical bubblegum-pink locker that accepts personal handwritten notes to the star.
Another highlight is a chapel-themed space inspired by Britney’s “Blackout” album. Go ahead, kneel in front of a stained glass window and express your adoration. You’ll be surprised at how quickly your blessing is heard. She is an icon, after all.
The pop-up runs through April 26, and general admission tickets are available now for $39.
