For almost two decades, pop superstar Britney Spears has been a force to be reckoned with in the entertainment industry.
Britney Jean Spears is a famous American singer, songwriter, dancer, and actress who began as a child star. At the age of three, she began to be interested in entertainment and took dance lessons. Her milestones in the industry have brought her name to the halls of history as one of the greatest pop artists in the West.
Perhaps because of her early beginnings, Britney was considered a particularly gifted child actress as she grew up. She participated in competitions and won several talent shows for children as well as competitions at the state level. Her first two albums, Baby One More Time and Oops!… I Did it Again, led the charts, took her on, and broke records as well. Both albums sold over 20 million copies worldwide. At the time, Billboard recognized her 2009 as the best-selling artist of the 21st century. In addition, her album Oops!… I Did it Again became the best-selling debut album of a woman in a week, with over 1.3 million copies sold.
Britney Spears Wiki
The star that “was born to make you happy” was born on December 2, 1981, in McComb, Mississippi. It was born of the American author Lynne Irene Bridges and James Parnell Spears. Despite the conspicuous life she currently leads, Britney grew up under the strict religious influences of a conservative, evangelical Protestant, Christian family. As a child, she even sang in the choir of the Baptist Church when she discovered her passion for singing at an early age.
At the age of three, she took dance lessons and also attended gymnastics and singing classes, winning many state competitions and talent shows for children. Nevertheless, she made her debut on the local stage at the age of five when she sang “What Child Is This” at the end of kindergarten.
Apparently, a supportive mother is an essential part of becoming a world-class star, Britney Spears can attest to that. Her mother, who became her biggest fan, took her to an audition for a spot on the Disney Channel’s “The All-New Mickey Mouse Club” when she was 8 years old, and although she didn’t get the role because she was too young at the time, she proved her singing talent in the popular entertainment contest “Star Search” in 1992.
Despite her failed first attempt, Britney tried again for The All-New Mickey Mouse Club at the age of 11, and this time she was chosen for the cast. She played alongside other aspiring stars such as Justin Timberlake, Christina Aguilera, and actress Keri Russell.
After that Britney concentrated on developing her musical career after the show was canceled in 1995. She signed with Jive Records and released her first studio album “…Baby One More Time” on January 12, 1999. She debuted at number one on the Billboard 200 and after one month was certified twice by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) with platinum. The title track of the album, which was released as a lead single, sold 500,000 copies on the first day and reached the top spot in the Billboard Hot 100. The single topped the charts for two consecutive weeks and has sold more than 10 million copies to date, making it one of the best-selling singles of all time.
If you thought her debut was a hit in the music industry, then you should prepare yourself for her sophomore. While the dust from her dramatic rise to fame had not yet settled, Britney released Oops! in 2000 I Did It Again. The title track was an instant #1 hit in the album charts and sold more than 1 million copies in the first week.
Later in the 2000s, Britney tried her hand at acting. She starred in the feature film Crossroads, a drama that grossed more than $60 million worldwide. After a series of personal crises that took her career to a nosedive, Britney returned triumphantly and won three MTV Video Music Awards for the single “Piece of Me”.
Kids, Sister, Boyfriend, Husband
The pop star married his childhood friend Jason Allen Alexander at A Little White Wedding Chapel in Las Vegas, Nevada in January 2004, but the marriage was annulled 55 hours later. Later that year, after 3 months, she was engaged to Kevin Federline, an American background dancer. They married and had their first child, Sean Preston Federline, in 2005. Britney gave birth to her second child, Jayden James Federline, in 2006. In the same year, she filed for divorce from Federline on the grounds of insurmountable differences.
After her two failed marriages Britney did not bother to try again. However, from 2014 to 2015 she had a relationship with writer and producer Charlie Ebersol, and in 2017 she started dating model Sam Asghari, who is much younger than her. In early 2018, there is a rumor that she may have received an engagement ring from her 23-year-old boyfriend.
Meanwhile, Britney is not the only member of her family who has made the headlines for the wrong reasons in the past. In 2007, her younger sister, actress Jamie Lynn, announced that she was pregnant at the age of 16. This made her a controversial symbol of teenage pregnancy. Jamie Lynn is an American actress, singer, and songwriter with many film successes.
