Britney Jean Spears was born in 1981 in a town called Kentwood, Louisiana. Like Miley Cyrus and Lindsay Lohan, she started out as a Disney child star, starring in The New Micky Mouse Club with Justin Timberlake and Christina Aguilera. Admiring superstars like Mariah Carey, Billy Joel, and Whitney Houston, Spears decided she wanted to be a singer, and released her debut album, ...Baby One More Time, in 1999 when she was seventeen years old.
Jive Records produced Oops!... I Did It Again the following year, and the songs "Lucky" and "Stronger" made Britney even more popular. She began dating Justin Timberlake from 'N Sync, and perhaps the last of her childhood ended when they broke up. No longer a school girl, she presented herself as a sexy icon with provocative clothing. In 2003, the star sang "Me Against the Music" at the NFL Kickoff and released In the Zone. The single "Toxic" won a Grammy for Best Dance Recording, and the artist began The Onyx Hotel Tour.
After a 2004 wedding, she had two children with her husband, Kevin Federline. They filmed a reality TV show called Britney & Kevin: Chaotic but the couple divorced in 2007. Overwhelmed by gossip and custody battles, Britney fell apart, shaving her head and leaving drug rehab programs. Despite the stress, Blackout won "Album of the Year" at the MTV Europe Music Awards and featured pop music favorites like "Gimme More" and "Piece of Me."
Spears released Circus in 2008, which received positive reviews. Its lead single "Womanizer" was Spears' first #1 single since "Baby...One More Time." Spears continued her comeback with a tour to promote the album. In 2011 Spears released another #1 single "Hold It Against Me," followed shortly thereafter by her seventh album Femme Fatale.
Spears released her most recent album, Britney Jean in 2013, which featured the singles “Work Bitch” and “Perfume.” The same year, Spears began her Las Vegas residency titled “Britney: Piece of Me.” The shows, which take place at Planet Hollywood Resort and Casino are scheduled to run through the end of 2015.
