Britney Spears biography


Britney Spears was born in Kentwood, Louisiana, on December 2, 1981. As a young girl growing up, Britney always knew she wanted to pursue a musical career and took her talents to her local church, where she performed "What Child Is This," and even on national television, with her appearance as a Star Search contestant.

The last couple of years might have been tough for Britney Spears but for sure, not on her looks. She still looks as good as when we first started seeing her in the music video ...Baby One More Time from 1999.

At 8, Britney Spears auditioned for the popular children's variety show Mickey Mouse Club but was refused because of her young age. Luckily for Britney Spears, one of the show's producers saw the young singer's talent and helped her find an agent in New York City.

Britney Spears spent the next three summers in New York, where she studied at the famous Off-Broadway Dance Center and the Professional Performing Arts School. To add to the formation of a future international star, Britney appeared in commercials and Off-Broadway shows, one of which showcased Britney as an innocent 10-year-old who is really an evil lousy girl.

Three years after her first Mickey Mouse Club rejection, Britney Spears landed a spot as a "Mouseketeer" at 11. Joining a cast of talented teens on the show, Britney Spears showed off her acting, dancing, and singing talents on the front, spawning the careers of Keri Russell and Christina Aguilera. After 2 years of living in Orlando with her family while doing the show, Britney moved back home to Kentwood after the show was canceled and returned to high school.

Her one average year as a fourteen-year-old high school student would be her life's last bit of normalcy. With a dream of pursuing a career as a singer, Britney set off to New York City again, destined to sign with a major record label.

Britney Spears signed with Jive Records after an executive was thoroughly impressed with the talent he heard on the demo tape. Working with Eric Foster White, a producer who had previously worked with artists such as Boyzone and Whitney Houston, Britney Spears's debut album was finally ready for its January 12, 1999 release date.

Baby, One More Time spawned such hits as "Crazy," "Sometimes," and of course, the title track, the infectious "Baby, One More Time." The album held the number one spot on the Billboard charts and was certified RIAA 12 x platinum (it has sold more than 20 million copies).

Britney won the 1999 MTV Europe Awards for Best Female Artist, Best Pop Artist, and Best Breakthrough Artist. Between recording her second album, Britney co-wrote a book with mom Lynne Spears, entitled Heart to Heart, and went on an extensive worldwide tour.

With the Britney Spears hype nowhere near over, she returned to the music scene in 2000 with her follow-up album, entitled Oops!... I Did It Again with a hit video accompanying the hit title track.

With a second worldwide tour supporting her album, and millions of fans, Britney has definitely accomplished what few artists ever perform at 18.

The 8 times platinum Oops!... I Did It Again spawned number 1 singles like "Lucky," "Stronger" (in which she performs a lap dance to a chair), and "Don't Let Me Be The Last To Know."

2001 was a banner year for the popster, as she co-hosted the American Music Awards with LL Cool J; performed at the Rock In Rio festival (where audiences got a real glimpse of what she sounds like offstage - and we don't mean her singing voice).

Performed with Aerosmith, *N Sync, Nelly, and Mary J. Blige at the Super Bowl; appeared on a spoken-word CD of the Pope's prayers; and signed a multimillion-dollar endorsement with Pepsi.

While she dances with factory workers in a warehouse, impressing even Bob Dole and his dog, Christina Aguilera stars in a Coca-Cola commercial, fueling more than just a pop war.

The mystery of Britney Spears's sudden physical maturity is still unsolved. Still, there are two rumors we can dispel: Britney isn't cuddling up to Prince William, but rather a prince of pop, *N Sync singer Justin Timberlake. Although she preaches abstinence until marriage, it's hard to believe that Britney and Justin do no more than cuddle.

And another rumor that is certainly not true is the one claiming that Britney and Justin were killed in a car crash in Los Angeles; it was just a prank courtesy of two radio personalities.

Britney Spears and her legions of teenage fans aren't her only admirers: it turns out her role model, Madonna, has said that she's a big fan of Britney and a duet with the new Princess of Pop is in the works. Britney also appeared in a one-hour BBC documentary on the Material Girl.

As if CDs, sold-out concerts, and books (her second co-written book with her mother was released in April 2001, entitled A Mother's Gift). And a vast endorsement isn't enough; Britney is now working on an acting career and tinkering with the idea of a fashion line.

Being the youngest female to achieve 10-times platinum status and notch a number 1 album and single in the US with debut recordings ain't all that bad.
