Hold It Against Me (2011)
Unfamiliar with this week's tune? Hear it here.
1) Britney Spears addresses this song to a dance partner when she hears her favorite song. What song always makes you want to get up and dance?
Lots of songs, particularly show tunes. "I'm Gonna Wash That Man Right Outta My Hair", "Matchmaker Matchmaker", and like that, and several songs from Hamilton. And "Sweet Child O' Mine." Go figure.2) She sings that she needs a vacation. How about you? If you could escape anywhere for an affordable three-day weekend, where would you go?
Far away from everyone I know. Seriously. South America sounds really good.3) Britney shows off her dance moves in this video. Her coordination shouldn't be surprising, since she was already an accomplished gymnast in grade school. If we asked you to turn a somersault right now, could you do it?
Maybe, but I wouldn't. The last time I tried one, I was in so much pain I just sat on the floor holding my neck for half an hour hoping I hadn't broken my neck. I was 19.4) Britney's first and only feature film was Crossroads, written by Shonda Rhimes. Ms. Rhimes is famous for writing popular TV series including Grey's Anatomy, Scandal, The Catch and How to Get Away with Murder. Have you watched any Shonda Rhimes shows?
Nope. I'm not into soapy stuff. ... Waiting for the fans to chime in.5) Britney admits to smoking and biting her nails. Do you share either of these bad habits?
I definitely bite my nails, but less than I used to. Never smoked, thank God, since I'd probably be seriously hooked.6) Britney prefers Margherita pizza to thin slice or deep dish pizza. What's your pizza preference?
Hello?! Chicago deep-dish forever and ever!!7) In 2011, when this song was popular, Prince William's wedding to Kate Middleton was big news. Are you a royal watcher?
Kinda. I did get up and watch the wedding, as I watched his mother and father's wedding 30 years ago. I work with someone who's pretty insane about the whole subject so I feel pretty meh around her.8) Apple co-founder Steve Jobs died in 2011. Do you have a Mac, and iPad or an iPhone?
Never had one. Don't plan on changing that any time soon.9) Random question: Which friend annoys you more, the one who interrupts you all the time, or the one who is never on time?
I grew up in a big family that talked over each other all the time. Being late pisses me off, even when I try to be understanding.
