Britney Spears Biography (Wikipedia)

Britney Jean Spears (born December 2, 1981) is an American singer, dancer, and actress. Born in McComb, Mississippi, and raised in Kentwood, Louisiana, she performed acting roles in stage productions and television shows as a child before signing with Jive Records in 1997. Spears's first two studio albums, ...Baby One More Time (1999) and Oops!... I Did It Again (2000), were massive global successes and made her the best-selling teenage artist of all time. Referred to as the "Princess of Pop", Spears was credited with influencing the revival of teen pop during the late 1990s and the early 2000s.

Spears adopted more mature and provocative themes for her next studio albums, Britney (2001) and In the Zone (2003). The latter earned her a Grammy Award for Best Dance Recording. She also ventured into acting with the starring role in the 2002 film Crossroads. However, her much-publicized personal issues sent her career into hiatus. Her erratic behavior and hospitalizations made her placed under a still ongoing conservatorship. Despite being released during her personal struggles, Blackout (2007), was considered as her best work, with The Times naming it as the fifth best pop album of the decade.
