Britney Spears

Born Dec. 2, 1981 in tiny Kentwood, La., Britney Spears emerged as one of the defining artists of the teen-pop/bubblegum music craze of the 1990s. Before her explosion as a solo artist, Spears gained notoriety as a contestant on Star Search and cast member of The New Mickey Mouse Club, the kid-friendly variety show produced at Disney-MGM Studios in Orlando.

Although early solo hits such as "Baby One More Time" and "Oops I Did It Again" exuded a playful innocence, the singer's image would become more sexual as her career progressed.

Born Dec. 2, 1981 in tiny Kentwood, La., Britney Spears emerged as one of the defining artists of the teen-pop/bubblegum music craze of the 1990s. Before her explosion as a solo artist, Spears gained notoriety as a contestant on Star Search and cast member of The New Mickey Mouse Club, the kid-friendly variety show produced at Disney-MGM Studios in Orlando.

Although early solo hits such as "Baby One More Time" and "Oops I Did It Again" exuded a playful innocence, the singer's image would become more sexual as her career progressed. Speculation about her virginity and relationship with boyfriend Justin Timberlake began to eclipse her music by the time of her 2001 album, Britney. Steamy songs such as "I'm a Slave 4 U," which she performed in a skimpy outfit with a snake wrapped around her neck on the MTV Video Music Awards, fueled such talk.

As an adult, Spears continued to be a magnet for the tabloids, embarking on a bizarre two-day marriage to childhood sweetheart Jason Alexander and later marrying backup dancer Kevin Federline. That relationship was chronicled in a reality show, Chaotic. She had two children with Federline, but divorced him in 2007.

Spears then descended into more unbalanced behavior, having her head shaved at a salon in Tarzana, Calif., enduring ugly custody battles and involuntary psychological treatment. She emerged, however, to make two albums, Blackout (2007) and Circus (2008).
