5 Things We Forgot Happened In 2006

A decade doesn’t seem that long ago, right? But, if you measure the years in iPhone versions, 2006 was version zero because they didn’t even exist yet! iPhones weren’t released until 2007, ya’ll. Talk about a brain explosion. Let’s reflect on a five things we probably forgot happened back in 2006:

1 – Britney Spears and Kevin Federline broke up.

Brit Brit has come a long was since that tumultuous time in her life and career. Remember when she couldn’t even leave the house without being stalked by hundreds of photographers? Luckily her marriage to K-Fed and those wild days were left behind in the early 2000’s.

2 – Lance Bass came out.

In July of 2006 Lance came out on the cover of People magazine and he’s been winning at life, career, and love ever since!

3 – Steve Irwin died in a freak sting ray accident.

This was completely shocking news that year. Our beloved Crocodile Hunter! RIP, Steve.

4 – George Clooney was People’s Sexiest Man Alive.

I mean, I guess that’s not exactly hard to believe, but we did forget!

5 – Friday Night Lights the TV show hit the small screen and introduced us to TIM RIGGINS.

Thank you 2006 for one of the best TV shows of all time!
