Britney is one of the last teenage superstars of the millennium. She was born on 2nd December, 1981 Kentwod, Louisiana, USA. Her mother Lynne is a second grade teacher and dad Jamie is a building contractor. They also run a gym. Britney has an older brother Bryan and a younger sister Jamie Lynn. She was called by various nicknames like Pinkey, Bit-bit, or Brit. She is a natural born brunette but she has dyed her hair blonde. As a child she absolutely loved to sing and dance. She was great in gymnastics too and participated in many competitions. Britney also used to appear in local church choirs.

When she was barely eight, Britney auditioned for the Mickey Mouse Club but was turned down because of her young age. But that led her to being introduced to a New York Agent who enrolled her for the next three summers at the Professional Performing Arts School Centre. She appeared in a number of off-Broadway productions as a child actor, including Ruthless, 1991. She again tried for “The New MMC” at the age of 11 and this time made it as a mousekateer along side many stars of today Justin Timberlake, and J.C. Chasez of N*Sync).

Her breakthrough, however, was when she was signed on by Jeff Fenster of Jive Records in the late 90’s. Jive Records groomed her expensively and employed top people for her debut album. Early 1999 Britney became an international success with the release of her debut album Baby, one more time selling 13 million copies. Oops, I did it again followed in 2000 May becoming a sophomore hit selling around 9 million copies.

Baring her midriff in concerts have become her trademark. She idolises Mariah Carey and Madonna. She has been the First Solo Artist ever to have a number one Album and Single on the Billboard Charts at the same time with a Debut. Britney caused a stir in 1999 with the American Family Association by posing in her underwear on the cover of Rolling Stone and also fought rumours of breasts implants the same year.

In the year 2000, she again created a stir at MTV Video Music Awards by dressing up in flesh colored outfit which made her look scantily clad. She also signed a contract with Pepsi to do their T.V commercials promoting their soft drink for $10,000 million upwards in 2001. In the same year she hosted the American Music Awards.

She has also starred in the movie CrossRoads released in March 2002 which did not do exceptionally well. Around the same time she also broke up with her boyfriend Justin Timberlake. She was voted as one Fun and Fearless female by Cosmopolitan magazine and as the Fourth Most Influential Person by the People magazine. Britney is also the most searched for name on the internet. Currently, she is at work on her fourth album slated to release by October 2003.

“Who really cares if I’ve had sex? It’s nobody’s business. Trust me, I’m not going to have a press conference to announce it. If I mess up, I’m human. If I have a drink or I’m with someone, I’m human. I’m no different than anyone else my age.”

“I suck at flirting. There’s one thing I don’t understand about Hollywood. How they have a relationship, end it, and go right into the next. It’s hard for a woman in this industry. Either the guy’s going to be really intimidated, or they’re going to kiss your ass. I’m just a girl wanting a guy to love me.
