Britney Spears began her singing career at a young age. At age 11, she began her quest for stardom on Disney Channel’s Mickey Mouse club. Britney starred in the show with fellow Mickey Mouse Club Alumni such as: Justin Timberlake, Christina Aguilera, JC Chasez, Keri Russel and Ryan Gosling. Finalists for the show who didn’t make the cut include Jessica Simpson and Countest Vaughn. She was on the show until it ended in 1994.
Four years later, Britney broke out of her musical anonymity with her hit single “Baby One More Time.” Britney is now an actress as well as a Grammy Award winner.
Britney’s Early Life
Britney grew up in a close, Southern Baptist family in Louisiana. When she was very young, she was a gymnast, and competed in many state competitions. It wasn’t until her desire to attend the Mickey Mouse Club fueled her dancing goals which inspired her to become an international pop-star and performer. At first, Spears was turned down for a spot with Disney because she was too old. When she returned 2 years later, she joined the Mickey Mouse Club at the age of 13.
Britney’s Career and Net Worth
Britney Spears stayed with the Mickey Mouse Club until it ended in 1994. She attended high school for a year, and then later joined a pop group called Innosense. This was short lived, and she decided that being a solo-artist was her best bet to achieve success. This assumption proved right within the next 3 years.
1997 to the year 2003 were probably the most important and life-altering years for Britney Spears. Her hit single “Baby One More Time” launched her into the spotlight, and was met international success and attention. Her “Baby One More Time” titled album sold 25 million copies worldwide, and she was named one of 1998’s biggest pop-stars.
After the international fame, criticism followed. As Britney soon learned being an international icon had it’s difficulties. The Rolling Stone cover of April 1999 couldn’t have given Britney more negative feedback than anything in her career. Speculation grew as to whether or not she had been given breast implants or not. Later that same year, she and fellow Mickey Mouse Club member Justin Timberlake were beginning to seem a little more than just friends, and in 2000, they publicly announced that they were a couple.
Britney Spears Kids
In 2002 her relationship ended with Timberlake and two years later she was married to Kevin Federline, which also sparked controversy in Spears’ life. Kevin was having a second child with another woman (Shar Jackson), while getting married to Spears. Sean Preston Federline, Britney’s first child, was born on September 14th, in 2005.
Britney Spears Hot Shoot
Among the controversy of her rumored pending divorce Britney Spears posed Hot, Sexy and Beauty for the August 2006 cover of Harper’s Bazaar, and was also pregnant with her second child, Jayden James Federline who was born on September 12, 2006. Two days before her oldest child’s first birth day.
The next year would be extremely hard for Spears. In the year 2007, Britney Spears got divorced, lost her aunt to breast cancer, battled ex-husband Kevin for child custody, and admitted herself to drug rehabilitation.
Although the star says that her career is not over, and has attempted to hold concerts that have received unfavorable reviews, she will be recording and releasing another single, Piece Of Me, which will be released in 2008, and is held with high expectations as she makes her hopeful comeback.
