Time Out with Britney Spears (stylized as time out with britney spears) is the first video album by American recording artist Britney Spears.

Content[edit]

Time Out with Britney Spears features interviews with Spears about her childhood, The Mickey Mouse Club, the making of her debut album ...Baby One More Time and life on tour.[1] The video album also features the music videos for her singles "...Baby One More Time", "Sometimes" and "(You Drive Me) Crazy (The Stop Remix!)", as well as behind-the-scenes footage from each of them.[1] Also included are live versions of "Born to Make You Happy" and "From the Bottom of My Broken Heart" from her Disney Channel special, a photo gallery that features a mixture of candid and professional shots, web site access and a trivia game that unlocks a special interview "if you answer all the questions correctly".[1][2] There is an option for lyrics to appear on the screen when watching the music videos or the live performances.[2]

Critical response[edit]

Heather Phares of Allmusic called the Time Out with Britney Spears "one of the better music DVDs currently available" and "a must for Britney enthusiasts".[1] Marc Girdler of DVD Talk agreed, calling the release a "disc for Spears' fans", that is full of "everything you could want, within reason".[2] Girdler wrote that the interview footage is "pretty good", although "most of it is taken from MTV, so the content is not all exclusive to the disc".[2] The option of having lyrics appear on the screen is, according to Girdler, "cool if you like to sing along, but have a bad memory".[2]

Time Out with Britney Spears debuted at number two on Billboard's Top Music Videos chart on December 18, 1999.[3] After five weeks on the chart, the DVD reached number one.[4] On June 15, 2000, Time Out with Britney Spears was certified 3x Platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA), for shipments over 600,000 copies,[5] while remaining at number one on the chart on the dated week of June 24, 2000.[6] The DVD made its last appearance on the dated week of March 24, 2001 at number thirty-seven, after staying on the chart for sixty-eight weeks.[7]
