You drop a dollar into and pull the handle. Three
pots of gold line up on the screen and bells and whistles go off. You've
won $1 million in a progressive jackpot! You go into hiding for the next
few years, taking dance and voice lessons and undergoing a bevy of plastic
surgery procedures, more than even Cher.
When you emerge in 1999, you've changed your name and nobody recognizes
you as the riot grrl you used to be. MTV crowns you, Britney
Spears, the queen of Total Request Live.
