34 Times Britney Made The Internet A Better Place In 2018
It's nearly the end of the year, which means it's a time to reflect on the year that was.
Perhaps you think the year has been full of darkness, like 2017 was, or like it's been a year or ups and downs, peaks and valleys, but you'd be wrong.
Actually, this year has been wonderful, if you just know where to look.
Here on the Entertainment team, we chose to head over to the happiest, dorkiest, strangest place on the internet to get a look at the world in 2018.
That place -- obviously -- is Britney Spears' Instagram. It's a well-known fact that Britney's Instagram brings joy to anyone blessed enough to come by it, so obviously, we looked to her to be our documentarian, our scribe to remember the year.
A gorgeous start to the year, Britney rang in the new year by becoming a "cereal killer". Quality Momney content!
She performed one of her many incredible fashion shows for us, serving major "The FBI watching me through my webcam" meme moments.
BRIT-ney was an English pussycat that just wanted a sip of milk. Can she live?!
A proud momney moment. Precious!
Britney has no haters in the world but if she did, she'd know to twirl on 'em. A queen of remaining unbothered!
One of the biggest icons in the world reminding us to find joy in the simple pleasures of life. A gift to this world and to our feeds.
A feminist icon, never drags others, not here for drama. A role model and an inspiration.
She found her white booty shorts! I think WE'RE ALL excited about that.
Britney posting these pitched up live singing snippets is the most Britney way to troll us all, and it couldn't be more perfect.
Now, this one is important because Miss Brit is wearing the same shorts from the music video for "Don't Let Me Be The Last To Know", which came out in 2001. Humble legend.
Fun fact: Real Britney stans will know that Britney loves tigers, she thinks about them a lot! As a receipt, I provide you this link, which will tell you that back in 2006, Britney posted a photo of a tiger along with a quote from the William Blake poem The Tyger, along with her thoughts about tigers.
At the time, she wrote:
“In some ways, people are a lot like animals. We all hunger for the same things. Love, lust, danger, warmth and adventure. Like people, animals all have their own rhythm to life.
“I’m mesmerised by tigers. Their eyes, their stripes, their constant quest for survival. They almost have a sense of mysteriousness about them. They pull you in and make it difficult to look away. They make you wonder what is behind their gaze.
“A sense of eerie awe comes over you in their presence. The fear they give you when you pass them is stunning. Behold the beauty of the tiger.”
Queen of stanning tigers!
If Britney Spears says magic is real, then welcome to my TED Talk:
Britney's "that's a nice photo, I'll post it to my 21.5 million followers, they'll probably like it also!" approach to Instagram is one of the reasons Britney's feed is the most refreshing celebrity Instagram feed out there. Unlike the curated, sponsored glimpses into the worlds of your other faves, Britney gives you a tiny, unfiltered look at the things that make her happy. Also? If Britney can find the time to tag the photographer, then you can, too.

This prank-war: the only kind of war that you need to worry about when you're on Britney's Insta!
More fairies! Like tigers, Britney loves fairies. In fact, she loves them so much that a fairy was the first of her many tattoos:
This choreography cleared our skin, cured our depression and ended world hunger.
Classic, relatable content, and life advice! Perfection.
QUOTING VANESSA HUDGENS. We -- it's just so good, you know?
She's right! It is a cute tea pot!
She couldn't decide whether she preferred her hair up or down. Same!
The bears from Goldilocks were found dead in a ditch after this was posted!!!!! Cancelled, they're over! Gone!
Find yourself a Minions meme that also accurately reflects your star sign. Britney is a Sagittarius, FYI.
This tree is Britney Spears' favourite tree. Britney Spears visits this tree every year. This is the luckiest tree on the face of the planet. This tree has a better life than all of us, because this tree is Britney's favourite.
An individual, a rebel, an actress, a dork. What can't she do?!
Festive season, now featuring pitched up vocals! Wig!
Queen of skits, queen of gettin' hangry, queen of 2018. A living legend.
