EDITORS’ NOTES

You’d have been forgiven for thinking 2007 was the end of Britney Spears. After a series of public meltdowns, there was rehab, divorce and a custody battle. But out of that wreckage came what is widely considered to be not only her best album but one of the most influential pop albums of the decade: adventurous, distorted and pitch black. The iconic opening line—“It’s Britney, bitch”— was more than just a sassy reintroduction, it was a declaration of independence and a statement about survival. In “Piece of Me”, she reclaims control of the spotlight by pointing it at our insatiability for rubbernecking. "You want a piece of me?” she asks, before answering her own question: “You want a piece of me.”
