Encyclopedia Britannicney: It’s Getting Chaotic

Hello students! As you are undoubtedly aware, Encyclopedia Britannicney takes a full year to cover. Your second semester will be more challenging than the first. Take notes as we celebrate the complex life of our president this President’s Day: Ms. Britney Jean Spears.

In “It’s Getting Chaotic,” we cover the end of Britney’s Onyx Hotel Tour, the introduction of K-Fed/ PopoZão, their marriage and divorce, and the birth of their two precious boys, Sean Preston and Jayden.

For more on this era, we encourage students to listen (or re-listen) to Pop U’s first episode, “Rogue Britney: A Popstar Story.” In that episode, we cover Britney’s lost album, Original Doll.

Be sure to listen closely to both before we launch into our biggest edition yet: “It’s Britney, Bitch,” which features a VERY special visiting professor.

Encyclopedia Britannicney: It’s Dangerous, She’s Falling – Part One

In the “It’s Dangerous, She’s Falling” edition of Encyclopedia Britannicney, we cover the massively consequential In-the-Zone-Madonna-kiss-Onyx-Hotel-shotgun-wedding-Unholy-K-Federation era. In Part One, we focus our studies on Britney’s life and promo leading up to the release of the rapturous In the Zone.

Topics of discussion include Fred Durst’s undying love for Britney, NYLA, the supremely harsh Diane Sawyer interview, and why you shouldn’t pitch a wholesome southern girl a single titled, “Pop Culture Whore.”

Your professors are joined by visiting lecturer, Adam Parker. Please find your reading list attached, and come prepared for your next session!

 

Encyclopedia Britannicney: A Star Is Born, Part One

In 1999 and 2000, Britney Spears went from being a little-known cootie patootie to the most influential pop star in the world. Her rise was rapid, and her promotional opps were plentiful. In today’s edition of Encyclopedia Britannicney, professors Hannah and Maddie are joined by visiting lecturer Marcus, who has seen Britney 40 – we repeat, 40 – times in concert.

Part One of A Star Is Born focuses on the Baby One More Time album and affiliated tour. Find your reading list here: Reading List
