Can you believe it was 15 years ago today that Britney Spears hit No. 1 for the first time with “…Baby One More Time,” launching her career and the teen singer explosion of the early 2000’s. It reached the Billboard top spot only weeks after the album was released. Spears, 17 when this hit came out, definitely led the pack of other teens like Christina Aguilera, Jessica Simpson and Mandy Moore. Moore ended up being a bit “more” successful in movies than music. To give you a sense of how long ago that was, since then, Spears – now 32 – has had two kids, been married twice and been engaged another time. Here are some other notable events that took place or were big in Januray 1999. Chances are, you’ve forgotten half of them by now.
