It's hard to believe that Britney Spears hates her iconic "Slave 4 U" performance at the 2011 MTV Video Music Awards. Thanks to her enviable abs and her albino python accessory, she made headlines for several years. Fans were expecting her to one up the performance, or at least bring it back.

Now, as the 15th anniversary of her iconic performance approaches, Britney Spears is thinking about the time that she slipped into that green halter-style crop top and brought her beloved banana on stage with her. Spears, 34, recently told E! News that she regrets doing the performance because it's obviously dangerous.

"It's insane! Why did I do that!?" Britney exclaimed to the outlet.

As for recreating that iconic moment, don't expect it to happen anytime soon.

"H*ll, no!" Spears exclaimed. "It's so dumb. No! Never!"

Take a trip back to the early 2000s and watch Britney Spears' "Slave 4 U" performance in the video below.

Then, in the middle of her performance for "(I Got That) Boom Boom" on her Onyx Hotel Tour, she jokingly told her fans that she hates singing "Sometimes."

"I know!" Spears exclaimed. "I'm so old!"

If she could give her younger self advice, she would say, "Be Fearless."

Now, Britney is focused on the present as she makes her big comeback. The singer has already started her comeback process by opening for the 2016 Billboard Music Awards with a medley of her hit songs. Interestingly, Britney doesn't seem to mind performing "Slave 4 U" on a stripper pole. Just saying.

The pop star took to Instagram to share a photo of her and G-Eazy. Then, she took to Instagram to tease some more photos from the video shoot.

"It's very exciting. I've been working on this project for a year and a half now, almost two years so it really means a lot to me. It's my baby."
"I'm old school. I like classic rock. I like The Rolling Stones. The Lumineers are really cool. Sade is nice. I like 80s music, too."
