Why is Brit resting on Matt? IDK, it’s the ’90s!
We’ve seen some incredible Throwback Thursday photos ’round these parts as of late. But, this photo of Britney Spears casually nuzzling Matt Lauer’s shoulder at the 1999 Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony at Rockefeller Center may just take the #tbt cake.
I meannnn, look at her li’l face! That shoulder-to-cheek placement! NEITHER OUR MINDS NOR OUR BODIES WERE AT ALL READY TO PROCESS THIS BIZARRE MOMENT.
Because we like to consider ourselves preeeeeeetty well-versed when it comes to all things Britney. We must’ve played hooky that day in Brit-nology class ’cause, um… since when are Matt Lauer and Brit snuggle buddies?!?! We remember that Britney was there to perform “Silent Night,” but this? Drawing a HUGE blank.
Well, we’re not sure about you, Britney Army, but all we want for a belated Christmas present this year is for Matt and Britney to re-create this photo! Shoulder nuzzling is JUST as
confusing affectionate in 2013 as it was in 1999.
Don’t worry though, Brit. You don’t have to rock that floor-length, fuzzy white coat. However, Matt? Leave the proto-John Mayer hat ON. #SorryNotSorry
