sings* I'm a slaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaave for yoooooooou.
The Lord only knows how much this song meant and still means to me.
This joint came out when I just turned nine years old after moving to Florida from New Jersey. I was a little girl, I moved into this brand new atmosphere, I did not know ANYBODY. My way of keeping myself sane was watching music videos and dancing to them as if I were in the video myself. And I must say I had a blast all by myself, just my TV and I. (just me and my bitch)
I have always been a fan of Britney Spears. I wanted to be a sexy school girl when "Hit Me Baby One More Time" came out. Yeah, that song came out when I was nothing but seven, or something, but it was love at first sight with Britney. I even had her barbie doll!
"Slave 4 U" is one of the top songs from my childhood. Every time it would come on, I would get this sudden rush to get up and dance. That's all it was to me back then, just dance! I was a dorky little girl. I had a round ass stomach, ugly non-curly hair, and I was really awkward looking. But when "Slave 4 U" came on, I thought I was the sexiest bih alive. Nothing could stop me. You read me!? NATHAN!
Watching the making of the "Slave 4 U" video, I wanted it ALL. I, too, wanted to be covered in fake sweat in a stringy ass pink top, with a whole rack of people dancing and breathing on me. I would study Britney's dance moves and try to do the same damn thing. I didn't know what she was talking about and it really didn't matter to me.
This post isn't just about Britney and how genius her song is, it's deeper than that. This track gave my little, lonely, hopeless ass life! I thank you greatly, Britney. I wish one day I could say it to your face and we can remake this video. OOOOOOOOOOOOO >.<
