You want a hot body? You want a Bugatti? You want to climb Mount Everest? You better work, b*tch. 26-year-old Mollie Hughes knows Britney Spears' mantra all too well did when she became the youngest Brit to scale both sides of the 29,000 ft summit while listening to the pop titan.
Earlier this week, Hughes made headlines when she and her guide Jon Gupta hit the peak of the world's highest mountain during the early Tuesday morning hours. She had previously reached the south side of Everest when she was 21-years-old, so this week's hike makes her the youngest Brit to scale both faces of the mountain, and she has Spears' "... Baby One More Time" to partially credit for the feat.
In one video from her travels, Hughes and Jon are seen resting inside of a tent. "We are quite happy. [We are] snug as a bug in a rug in our sleeping bags, about to have some dinner and then maybe put Britney Spears back on, which is what we were listening to before you interviewed me," Jon says in a video, which was recorded by the 26-year-old.
As for her mindset once she reached the top, Molly said that she was elated and exhausted to make it to the top. "I still have the hardest part to do – the long and difficult descent to base camp," she added. Relive her journey on her Instagram.
Everest update - We have only gone and done it! What can I say!? It has been the hardest 7 days of my life! Unrelenting pain and suffering, but if you can keep suffering and keep putting one foot in front of the other, you get to the top and we bloody did! As it began to get light, Jon turned a corner and threw his hands in the air, he could see the summit. Relief, complete relief. A few painful meters later I was standing on the summit of Mount Everest for the second time, with the most amazing team I could have wished for. My favourite picture of myself and Lhakpa Wongchu Sherpa, we summited together in 2012 and again yesterday. This was his 11 Everest summit! Not bad for a 31 year old! Along with Jon and Lila, they have been totally amazing and I couldn't have done this without them. To read the full write up go to my FB page @molliehugheseverest THANK YOU to all of my sponsors!
