While most entertainers would hold onto the memory of their MTV Video Music Awards performance like the birth of their first child, Britney says she has “no recollection” of the first time she hit the VMAs stage in 1999.
“I think I was with *NSYNC when I performed for the first time,” Spears said on the “Elvis Duran and the Z Morning Zoo” radio show Monday morning. “I think the whole setup was a classroom, I wanna say, and my four main dancers were in the front at their desk and I came out of my locker. But, you know what, I don’t remember at all. I have no recollection. I couldn’t tell you anything about it.”
It actually sounds like Britney does remember the important details (*NSYNC, what the routine was like), but blanked on the actual performing part. Which makes sense, considering you’d probably black out performing for millions of people, too.
Luckily, we have the pics from her first VMAs red carpet AND video of her performance with **NSYNC.
We bet she remembers this VMAs moment a little bit more:
