Britney Spears today gave a fresh 2021 twist to a 2001 moment that's gone down in pop culture history. The 39-year-old singer remains legendary for dancing on stage with a live snake 20 years ago at the VMAs, with her performance of "I'm a Slave 4 U" going down in history. On Monday, the "Toxic" hit-maker shook things up on her Instagram as she marked the anniversary, but the photo-heavy post wasn't without a warning as Spears talked to her "little tricks." Check it out below.

Nobody's Forgotten It

Scroll for the photos. Britney updated for her 30 million followers today with a setting that's now the standard on her Instagram. The Grammy winner, shot against a plain white wall and from her L.A. home, was dancing and posing in a striking, green, and snakeskin catsuit, one that clung to her famous figure and caught the eye.

Sending out a cautious vibe for the edgy shoot, Spears also held her hands up in a prayer position, but she was no angel in her caption.

Becoming It Herself

The mom of two, who has been catsuit all the way over May and June with her green, cheetah-print, and black leather ones, told fans:

"I held a snake at the @VMAs one time but decided to go ahead 20 years later and become the motherfucking snake myself 🐍🐍🐍 !!!!"

" And since TRICKS ARE FOR KIDS you tricky little sh-ts … who knows what color snake I will be tomorrow 😳🤔😏 !!!!??? STAY SAFE folks and watch out for the 🐍🐍🐍🤭🤭🤭 !!!!!" she added.

The pop princess, who has been delivering clap-backs and revealing she felt "embarrassed" by the media this year, was met with the thumbs-up. "QUEEN OF SERPENTS!" one fan replied. Britney's VMAs performance saw her writhing around with a 25-pound snake while in a statement bra top and bedazzled boy shorts. "Iconic," another user replied.

Britney has been making headlines for revisiting her past, and not just via her music. A recent post saw the blonde sharing a rare pool throwback, one also seeing her with then-young sons Jayden and Sean as she opened up.

The star, who welcomed her sons in her early twenties, told fans: "I had my babies very young … at all the pools we went to on tours, all the babies flocked to me because I always brought the most toys 🧸🪁🪀 … I really am a baby mamma 😜😜😜 !!!!"

Britney is this month gearing up for what will be her first chance to speak in court as she continues to battle 68-year-old dad Jamie Spears in her conservatorship case.
