Britney Spears Sends 'Fearless' Message to Teens: 'Be Yourself'

She nailed it! Britney Spears hit the 2015 Teen Choice Awards in Los Angeles, accepting the Candie's Style Icon award, and delivered an inspiring message to her fans that we wouldn't have thought possible several years ago.

The once-troubled pop star kept it all in the family on Sunday night, walking the red carpet with her two sons, Sean Preston, 9, and Jayden James, 8, along with her elder brother Bryan Spears and his little princess of a daughter Lexie.

As much as Brit Brit adores her sons, she's obviously been having fun spending time with her niece too, as she's Instagrammed more than a few pics of them dressing up together and enjoying more typically "girly" activities.

And who would've thought that Spears would become a role model and style icon after all the trouble she went through in her mid-20s? Can we ever forget the unfortunate head-shaving and umbrella attack of 2007? Maybe not, but we can certainly move on from it, just as Brit has gracefully done.

The 33-year-old looked the part accepting her "style icon" award in a super sexy lacy cutout dress paired with silver heels. She also rocked some purple-and-turquoise ombré in her signature blond tresses. But mostly, she just seemed to be incredibly happy with her family.

The "Pretty Girls" singer spent the majority of her acceptance speech gushing about her kids. She's become such an awesome mom after having a rocky start!

She also had an important message for her teen fans. "Fashion has always been something I've loved to experiment with. It gives us all a chance to express ourselves and our own personalities and to shine in our own way," she explained. "To all the teens out there watching, be fearless in your choices and don't be afraid to be yourself."

It's awesome advice, but even more poignant coming from someone who has overcome a lot of grief for her choices over the years. It goes to show the importance of not giving up on yourself, even when things get tough.

Speaking of tough decisions, the star also recently announced that she's "torn" about renewing her contract for her Las Vegas residency show, Britney: Piece of Me. She told E! News, "I haven't made up my mind ... I really love doing the show. It's a lot, a lot of fun but I'm kind of torn right now. I don't really know what I want to do."

Given how much fun she's been having with her family recently, we wouldn't blame her a bit if she wanted to take a break and focus on them for a while. Hopefully she takes her own advice to be fearless, and just be herself.
