See what I did there?
The 2000s were a tumultuous time. The new millennium felt good for about ten seconds when the world didn’t end because of Y2K. Then there were wars, terrorism, economic recessions, and reality TV.
However, it wasn’t all doom and gloom. We got iPhones, we watched the Golden Age of television, and we let stars into our homes who we still cherish like members of our own families. Frankly, we cherish some of them more than our own families.
These rare photos show people you know now but might not have known way back when. You think you’ve seen everything, but that’s the tip of the iceberg. Check out these rarely seen photos from the early 2000s.
Britney was the original “Tiger King”
Britney Spears performed “I’m a Slave 4 U” at the MTV Video Music Awards, complete with a tiger who was trained and handled by Doc Antle, a trainer featured in the Netflix series Tiger King.
No one knew at the time the drama unfolding behind the scenes. No one would utter the name Carol Baskins outside of Florida until decades later. Antle had this to say about Britney: “she was such a darling, totally just a fanatic person wanting a perfect performance… We were there for several days rehearsing so that the tigers would be relaxed and happy to be out there and that everything could be smooth and taken care of as best as possible. She was there rehearsing and working—just the hardest working, sweetest young girl, out there making all the pieces click together.”
