Britney Spears posted a photo on Instagram in which she's hugging A.J. McLean—as in A.J. of the Backstreet Boys—with the caption "Huge confession... biggest @backstreetboys fan!

Think about it: a bootylicious figure and a wardrobe that shows it off, a penchant for plunging necklines, a tendency to date rappers and make headlines in the process. Jennifer Lopez is basically the OG Kylie Jenner.
