Britney Spears : Biography
Britney born December 2, 1981, in Kentwood, Louisiana. The daughter of Lynne, an elementary school teacher, and Jamie, a construction contractor, Spears auditioned for the Disney Channel’s Mickey Mouse Club at the age of 8. Producers for the show decided she was too young, but one was impressed enough to help her find an agent in New York. Accompanied by her mother and younger sister, Spears lived in Manhattan for the next several summers, studying at the Professional Performing Arts School.
Spears was only 17 when she reached #1 on the U.S. pop music charts with her 1999 debut album ...Baby One More Time.
Spears married Kevin Federline, a professional dancer, in 2004. The ceremony was held on 18 September, but papers formalizing the wedding weren't filed until October 7th. It was the first marriage for Federline, who previously fathered two children with Moesha star Shar Jackson... Spears and Federline had their first child, a son named Sean Preston Federline, on 14 September 2005... Spears married childhood friend Jason Alexander in an impromptu ceremony in the Little White Wedding Chapel on the Las Vegas Strip in the early morning of 3 January 2004.
Britney Spears: Career
Britney spent summers schooling at New York's Off-Broadway Dance Center and the Professional Performing Arts School, and earned a role on the off-Broadway play Ruthless in 1991. A year later, she became a Mouseketeer, and was part of the show from the time she was 11 until she was 13.
After returning home for a short time to become a "regular" high school student, Spears was signed to the Jive record label, and finished recording her first album as a vocalist in 1998. Released in 1999, ...Baby One More Time was a smash hit, and in conjunction with Spears' stunning good looks, rocketed her to superstardom. She followed up with Oops!...I Did It Again the following year, and then Britney in 2001.
In February of 2002, Spears starred in her first major motion picture, Crossroads, bringing her back to her roots in acting. Playing a young woman named Lucy who embarks on an adventurous road trip with three friends in search of a mother who abandoned her at a young age, Spears savvily tied-in the release of the film with several singles from her 2001 recording Britney. Though her fan base showed up in droves, that wasn't enough to make Crossroads a hit, and critics not surprisingly lambasted the film as sentimental and exploitative. Spears' debut did not go ignored by the annual Razzie Awards, however, where the neophyte acress shared a trophy with her idol Madonna for Worst Actress of 2002
