In the first decade of the 21st century, nothing was off-limits. It was the age of pseudo punk-rock filled with spiked hair and spiky bracelets from Hot Topic, ”scandalous” pop and hip-hop coated in halter crop tops, and lots of eyeliner. There was so much eyeliner.
For many of us, the music of the early 2000s paved the way for our very mature existence. We were sensually shaped by Britney Spears’ sophomore album, Gwen Stefani’s slow-but-sure drift away from No Doubt, and all the bands that made moving to Southern California seem dreamy — and absolutely necessary. We wore knee socks and Vans. We sang along in our parent’s cars.
We know you were a different person back then, but that doesn’t mean your inner 2000s diva ever really left.
