Iconic Britney Spears & Justin Timberlake Throwback Moment Is A T-Shirt

I sought for joy in peace, and rest to ease my weary mind,
Stressed out by such a heavy load, rest I just had to find.
My endurance could hold no more, my limits had been met,
I needed time to stand aside, sweet time to just forget.

But where to find the road to peace, an obscure trait to me;
My hectic lifestyle can't comprehend a way to set time free.
I've always rushed from A to B with no side glace allowed,
I had my life so well controlled; in truth, I felt quite proud.

No one could tell me what to do, I was a self-made man;
My schedules were controlled by me, I had a thorough plan.
'Twas good when all things went my way and no one interfered;
I had no one to answer to, my way was always cleared.

But years of this brought me no joy, though fortunes I'd amassed;
It seemed that all the things I owned would oh, so soon be past.
I had no friends that knew my plight, I kept myself at bay,
They all had troubles of their own; besides, what could they say?

They envied me with all my wealth, they never saw my pain,
I had life altogether, what more was there to gain?
But loneliness is terrible and emptiness is sad,
There seems no purpose for each day, no reason to be glad.

So now I wait; why? I don't know, but life for me must change.
There must be more than fortunes, a way to rearrange.
There has to be a purpose, and someone surely knows,
Why life is complicated, and days so full of woes.

Perhaps you have the answer, perhaps you know the route,
Perhaps you've traveled here before; if so, please help me out.
If need be, I'll be patient, I'll even take advice;
I'll gladly make the changes, no matter what the price.

I don't need independence, I've had my round of that;
I long for understanding, to know just where I'm at.
Someday I hope to thank you because you saw my need,
Perhaps with greater meaning, with purpose, not with greed.

I don't know how I got here, what lies ahead of me,
I'm grateful there'll be changes, I'm grateful to be free.

Whether they are owning the red carpet or strutting down the street, celebrities are always serving us some seriously stylish looks. But on one day in particular, two icons changed fashion history as we know it. It was a day we remember well, January 8, 2001, Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake stepped onto the red carpet at the American Music Awards wearing a coordinated denim ensemble. It was the most on point denim-on-denim get-up the world has ever seen. Seriously, it has been cited as the most memorable, instantly iconic style moment ever.


What better way to pay tribute to such a turning point in celebrity fashion history than with a clothing line? Filles a Papa’s, a Belgian brand, honors 2001 Britney and Justin as part of their “Never Forget” t-shirt series. It has a digital print of the duo clad in the exact denim ensemble we all love and remember. High fashion does come at a steep price, however. $152.47 to be exact.


Filles a Papa’s founders toldĀ Glamour magazine, “We enjoy playing with moments that are instantly memorable. We love creating prints from nostalgic moments of our past- it’s an inspiration to us.” We couldn’t agree more, and we’re totally here for it.
