30 Photos Of Birthday Girl Britney Spears Looking Sexy On Stage [PHOTOS]

Happy 30th Birthday, Britney Spears!

‘Twas only a twinkle and a peck ago that we first saw you on MTV.  You were the reason TRL stayed afloat for so many years, and you were the most exciting artist featured on Making The Video.  Your performance with Aerosmith and N’Sync during halftime of Superbowl 35 was the stuff of dreams, and I still curse iTunes for not carrying that performance.

I had to stop collection photos of Spears after 2005, because then we crossed over into Kevin Federline territory and sh*t got real ugly, real fast.  We prefer to keep things light and remember the good times and washboard abs.
