Hi I'm Abs and your watching the class of 2000 here on VH1. Now I wanna Take you on a journey well it's more of a long weekend really back to the year 2000 Everyone had big expectations about the new millenium. Billions of people around the world welcomed in the new year with some of the most spactacular celebrations ever seen. Australia had the biggest spectical with over $300million spent on fireworks alone. Frances ifal tower was covered with 20,000 flashing lights and Britan welcomed in the new year with big fat dance sqib of a display with the wall of fire. Was as about exciting as seeing a Dido gig with Sade supporting. Here's something exciting, it's us with Queen and We Will Rock You.
The year 2000 created a miny baby boom partly because parents wanted to have a millenium baby and partly because it was the year of the golden dragon which is sposed to be lucky. But this sudden surge in the population is likely to put a strain in the school system and by 2005 classes are going to be packed.
It was also a big year for celebrity babies Madonna had Rocko, Cathrine Zeta Jones had Dylan, Kate Winslet had Mia and Sadie Frost had Iris. Which is obviously going to put a huge strain on Prada, Louis Vaton and Goochie. Talking about Goochie, Here's Victoria Beckham with Dane Bowers.
2000 was the year that barbie turned 40 and to celebrate this they bought out presedential barbie.
That must have really given the US citizens tough choice. Either barbie running the country or the GI Joe that is currently doing her. Amazingly enough if you put all the barbies dolls and family members sold since 1959 they would circle the earth more than 7 times. They had a different doll for every occasion. Evening wear, army gear, sports wear, scuber diving and pjarmer barbie. This next artist looks like a bondage barbie which is definately the one I would have bought. Here's Britney.
[Welcomes everyone back] Let me just remind you of what was going on in 2000. The cast of Friends got a whopping pay rise, Angelina Jolie and Billy Bob Thornton got engaged and Shinaed O'Conner announced she was a lesbian. 2000 also had everyone going around saying "what's uupppp" This was partly due to a bud weiser advert and partly due to them being idiots. Another big thing in 2000 was Kylie's bum, I don't mean that literally, I mean Kylie in her hot pants. here she is spinning around.
Ken Livingstone became Londons first elected mair of 2000, known as red Ken for his left wing views. Livingston got in much to the dismay of Tony Blaire and every car driver in London. Up to that point the only conjestion charge that we had to worry about was the cost of a box of synitab. The ironi is that Ken can't even drive. Putting a man in charge of roads that can't drive is like putting Elton John in charge of a budget and this next artist in charge of political correctness.

This is the class of 2000 with me, Abs. Now 2000 was a very eventful year for Madonna she gave birth to Rocko and she got married at Shkibo Castle in Scotland to Guy Ritchie. It was a star studded event with Gwenith and Sting and anyone who was anyone on the guest list. Stella McCartney designed her wedding dress and served as her maid of honour. I'm sure Guy would have asked me to be best man but he didn't want me to upstage him. Anyway, here's Mrs ritchie with American Pie.
In 2000, Michael Cain was nighted, Jennifer Aniston broke a millions girls hearts by marrying Brad Pitt and the queen mother turned 100. I wonder if she got a telegram from her daughter? Anyway it was an eventful year for this next artist he won best album and best hip hop artist at the MTV Awards but he was also arrested on weapons charges for putting a gun on a man who was kissing his wife in a car park. Now I know what your thinking it's Rik Waller but no you'd be wrong. It's the real slim shadey.
Hi and welcome back your watching the class of 2000 with me Abs. Now 1995 was a very bad year for Liz Hurley after the whole Huge and Divine episode. But
2000 probebly won't go down as one of her favourites either. She landed herself in trouble with Equity because neither she nor ex boyfriend Huge had paid their subscription since 1998, then she was fined $100,000 by the screen actors guild for filming an Este Lauder commercial during the actors strike. And it was going to take more than a dress hell(?) to buy safety pins to get her out of that one. Anyway here's Allsaint and Pure Shores
2000 was the year Tony Blaires eldest sone Ewan was arrested for being drunk and incapable. Police found the 16 yr old laying on the ground in Leister Square after a night of celebrating. The end of his GCSES with friends. On ariving at Charion(?) Police Station he gave a false name Ewan John and an old address and a date of birth to suggest he was 18. I wonder where he got his shocking ability to lie from? I'm guessing it's Cherie.
Anyway here's Robbie Williams with Rock DJ.
Well thats all we got time for I'm afraid but I hope you've enjoyed this little stroll down memory lane with me. I think the highlight of 2000 had to be winning a Brit for best pop act and seeing Mel C straddling J at the after show party And talking of Mel C I'm gonna leave you with her and the late great Lisa Left Eye Lopez and never be the same again.
This has been the class of 2000 and I've been Abs and thankyou for watching. Bye bye........
