Brief Britney Spears Bio
Stardom came early for singer, songwriter and actress Britney Spears. She began performing at the tender age of 11 years old on the TV show The ‘All New Mickey Mouse Club.’ It was her December 1998 debut hit, “Baby One More Time,” that would see her star begin to move with great velocity into the pop heavens.
The huge hit “Oops! I Did it Again” was quick to follow. At the 1999 Billboard Music Awards Britney Spears received awards for female album artist of the year, female artist of the year and best new artist of the year.
With her 2001 Album Britney and in particular her track, “I’m a Slave 4 U”, she began to take her image in a sexier direction with a mold breaking appearance at the 2001 MTV Video Music Awards. She wore a scanty outfit with a large albino python around her neck! Talk about image shattering!
The road she has taken to the present has been somewhat rocky, turbulent and controversial. She continues though to be a successful recording artist with 8 studio albums under her belt 6 of which have ascended to number one status.
After spending some time on The X Factor in 2012 as a judge she released her eighth album “Britney Jean” which received mixed reviews.
Britney Spears in 2014
Britney was a participant in Jimmel Kimmel Live!’s Celebrities Read Mean Tweets series. The mean treat which she read , “I feel like Britney Spears is stalking me on the radio. Quit forcing your suckage on me you tired hag!” She took it remarkably well with a big smile and a short laugh.

Ah, to be famous and have people exploring every nook and cranny of your life! Late this year the press has been having a feeding frenzy on the new man in Britney’s life, Charlie Ebersol. He’s the son of Saturday Night Live co-creator Dick Ebersol. Ebersol is a writer and producer and was discovered by Britney’s father. According to Perez Hilton Charlie had to sign a non-disclosure document to meet up! Why didn’t I ever think of that! I guess being famous has it’s perks!
Just recently (Nov 5) Britney received the Key to Las Vegas Strip at The LINQ Promenade.. Caesar’s Entertainment hosted a party in honor of the occasion and to celebrate Britney Day. The first 100 people who proved that their name was also Britney received two tickets to Spear’s “Piece of Me” show at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino as well as a ride aboard the High Roller observation wheel.
