Oh, Britney — it's been a wild ride, but you made it, girl!

Britney Spears wants Kate Middleton to wear her underwear

Britney Spears has been rockin' it out at her ongoing Las Vegas show, Piece of Me Live at Planet Hollywood, and undoubtedly bringing in even more cash for Sin City. Now Vegas is rewarding her with her very own holiday to be celebrated Nov. 5. The songstress took to Twitter to share her excitement about the news on Thursday.

Spears has had her share of ups and downs and we're so glad to see her come out on top. Take a minute to remember some of her wildest moments over the years with us.

1. Making out with Madonna at the 2003 MTV VMAs

Spears was known early on in her career for her innocent demeanor and fresh-faced look, so it came as a major shock when we found out that she's not that innocent at the Video Music Awards when she laid one on Madonna. Don't miss the look on Justin Timberlake's face. He and Spears were hot and heavy at the time.

2. "I'm a Slave" performance at the 2001 VMAs

Her body. Her dancing. Her outfit. Her hair. Her... snake? Another unforgettable Spears moment, brought to us by MTV.

3. Cheating scandal with Wade Robson

Timberlake and Spears were America's sweethearts and everybody's favorite couple back in the early '00s, but they suddenly split and rumors flew that she had hooked up with super-hot choreographer Wade Robson. Did she or didn't she? The truth of what really went down may never be known, but whatever happened inspired the most epic cheating anthem of 2002 and this awesome video featuring a Britney Spears look-alike.

4. The Canadian tuxedo

Speaking of JT, can we forgive Spears for the 2001 full denim outfits that inspired this tribute by Katy Perry?

5. Her very public meltdown in 2007

We don't know if it was the scrutiny of being in the spotlight for so long, substance abuse, being married to Kevin Federline, or a combination of all of the above, but Spears derailed for a while. It was painful to watch her deteriorate as she got violent in public, shaved her head and ultimately ended up under a strict conservatorship. These may not have been her finest moments, but we're so proud of Spears for rebounding so beautifully from such a hard time. It gives us hope for the struggling Amanda Bynes, and gave birth to the phrase "if Britney Spears can get through 2007, I can get through today." Ain't that the truth.
