I say this as a proud resident of New Jersey — leave it to the Garden State to scream obnoxiously out of turn…yet it still be a hilarious moment.
Britney Spears took her Piece of Me tour to Atlantic City over the weekend, when fan Zachary Gordon turned on the camera just as the pop star was about to deliver her nothing short of iconic line uttered on her 2007 single “Gimme More” and again on Will.i.am’s 2013 single “Scream and Shout”: “It’s Britney, b***h.”
The fan made it an interactive experience by yelling at the top of his lungs, “Who is it?!” Spears and her backup dancers heard him and let out a big laugh before telling the crowd exactly who it was.
“I can now be known as the guy in the crowd that made Britney laugh. 😂❤️😍,” Gordon captioned the video on Instagram.
The fan also shared a photo of Spears looking over in his direction. “The exact moment that Britney heard #WhoIsIt,” he captioned the shot.
Excuse me while I watch the clip about 11 more times.
Apparently, the phrase was pretty unplanned.
“he was basically open to any and everything that I mentioned. The phrase came last minute right at the end of the session,” producer Jim Beanz told MTV in 2010. We recorded that while she was pregnant with her second child. It was really difficult to try to make her sound really sexy an at the same time she was pregnant. We knew that as soon as she had the baby she was the one to be able to push that song. We needed that one catchphrase to really bring her back and put her stamp on the industry and that stamp was ‘It’s Britney b***h.'”
