Happy Birthday, Britney Spears: Here Are 32 Reasons We Love You

On her big day, MTV News is sending Brit a formal love letter.

Happy Birthday to the one and only Britney Spears!

On the eve of Britney Jean, Spears is celebrating her 32nd birthday, and while we here at MTV News are still a bit perplexed as to why December 2 isn’t a national holiday, that won’t stop us from celebrating.

So grab your party hats, cue up “Toxic,” and take a look at the 32 reasons why we love Britney Spears.

1. The Girl Can Dance

You can’t deny that the girl can dance: Just look at the choreography in “I’m a Slave 4 U,” “Stronger,” “Me Against The Music,” “(You Drive Me) Crazy” and just about every other Britney video ever.

2. Her Iconic Music Videos

Her videos are not only iconic, but they are sexy, (“Work Bitch,”) unforgettable, (“Oops…I Did It Again,”) and downright amazing (“Toxic,”). Just take another look, you’ll understand.

3. She’s Country, Y’all

Britney may reside in Los Angeles, but she came from country roots. Britney grew up in Kentwood, Louisiana (watch our hometown visit with her from 1998!) and it was there that her friends and family gave started calling her, Britney Jean.

4. One of Her First Friends was a Mouse
