2000: Spears releases her second album, "Oops' I Did It Again." The album sells more than 1 million units in the first week. At the MTV music awards that year, she makes headlines by donning a nude-colored, crystal-adorned outfit. 2001: Spears ups the spectacle ante at the MTV music awards by performing I'm a Slave 4 U with an albino python. (PETA is predictably outraged.) She also releases her third album, "Britney" which debuts at No. 1 but does not sell as well as her first two albums.
