Halle Berry Gives Britney Spears 'Oops! I Did It Again' A Makeover

(Radio.com) 2000 was a big year for Halle Berry and Britney Spears--while Berry filmed Monster's Ball, the movie that would win her an Oscar, Britney Spears broke the dial-up internet with her single "Oops! I Did It Again." Sixteen years later, it makes perfect sense that the two should meet at W magazine's Lyrical Improv series.

In the passionate rendering, Berry emotes her way through Spears' lyrics, lending Academy Award gravitas to the unforgettable ditty about regretting that thing you did, again.

Jodie Foster and Priyanka Chopra also joined the series with a double reading of Britney's "Toxic," though their cover verged into sing-talking to the track's actual melody. The genius of Berry's performance is how beautifully she registers sentiment though Spears' story, latching onto an emotional arc that lasts roughly one minute. Compare and contrast here.
