Britney Spears is a natural-blonde pop singer, dancer, songwriter, actress, author, and mother, born in the city of Kentwood in Louisiana, in December of 1981. She may be considered as among the last of the teenage superstars of this era.

Spears participated in church choirs as a kid as well as performed as a dancer in their town programs. As early as eight years of age, Britney knew she wanted to be in the limelight, and so she joined the audition for The Mickey Mouse Club, but was not accepted because she was still under-aged. One of the producers of the show, however, saw the potential in her, thus, Spears was introduced to an agent in New York.

Britney was enrolled for several summers at the Professional Performing Arts School center, which became the start of her singing and acting career. She also participated in several "off-Broadway" productions, once of which is the show "Ruthless" during the year 1991. When she turned eleven, she then was invited to join The Mickey Mouse Club, where she stayed for two years.
How did Spears find her way to being a pop sensation? Britney first started auditioning in New York for pop groups, where her demo tapes were liked by Jeff Fenster of Jive Records, who was amazed by Spears' vocal range as well as commercial appeal. Britney was then placed in the studio with Eric Foster White, a well-known writer and producer, who previously handled famous artists like Whitney Houston, Boyzone, etc. Max Martin, the top writer for the R&B genre was also hired to work with Britney, and was responsible for producing "…Baby, One More Time", Spears' debut single. The rest, of course, can be considered as history: Britney Spears became really famous and had a huge following.

Britney performed in various concerts with US teen magazines as the sponsors. She also had a successful tour with ‘N Sync. Spears' debut single and album both became chart-toppers in early 1999. Her success is not only US-based, but also noticeable in Europe, the UK, and other parts of the world. Other hits that spell out Britney's fame include: "Sometimes", "Born to Make You Happy", "Oops! I Did It Again", and many more. Britney Spears was also included in Teen People Magazine's: "21 Hottest Stars Under 21" and People Magazine's "50 Most Beautiful People" in 1999. Despite her life's many controversies e.g. going on rehab, doing some crazy stuff, etc., Britney Spears was still able to pick herself up, and still continues making chart-topping songs.

She's eye candy and a great dancer. But her voice is very annoying and sounds more like sugar-coated, suggestive cooing than singing.

I so hope Britney rights her ship. She's one of the few modern pop stars who I believe actually has the talent to keep producing hits like Madonna and Cher.

A prime example of whats wrong with music. A cute face with a terrible voice that sells millions. If you want to be based on your looks, be a model.

Think about your favorite "star." Whether it's an actor or a musician or an athlete, usually your first statement about them is, "I like That Star because..." Because they were great in a film, wrote an awesome song, won a Gold Medal. So why exactly do people like Britney Spears?    To get the obvious out of the way, she's a woman in the music who can't play an instrument or write a song. She's a "singer" who has not sung live in years, and is right now lipsynching on her current …

Not that i support all her outbreaks and crazy behavior, but i do have sympothy on her because she doesnt have a normal life like we do....shes surrounded by nagging fans everywhere she goes, she cant even go to toys r us and get her kids something without being photographed. So its much easier to judge someone, but her breakdown is not something she should be criticized for....it can happen to anyone. I just think she had too much on her plate, the divorce, and kids one after the other, in addition …

Britney by no means is all that great of an actor, her songs are for the most part catchy, but I think what has made her so popular is her sex appeal(or the lack there of)  She struts her stuff around and gives no regard that a younger generation is following in her footsteps.    We've all heard about her infamous break downs and such and after all that's gone wrong in recent years she seems to be pulling herself out of the rut she was in.  I'm by no means condoning …
