The beginnings of the young prodigy

Britney Spears was born in Kentwood, Louisiana on December 2, 1981. From an early age, she went to singing competitions in her region. At 8, she auditioned for Disney’s TV show, the Mickey Mouse Club. Too young, she is not selected, but her performance impresses and she decides to enroll in a dance and theater school in New York.


Child star grown up

Britney Spears is one of the icons of the Mickey Mouse Club alongside Justin Timberlake and Cristina Aguilera, among others, when she was only 11 years old. After a few solo attempts or in the group Innosense, she tries her luck with several record companies. After a few refusals, she signed her first contract in 1998 and released “…Baby One more Time”. Her candor mixed with her sexy attitude propels her to the top. This success is confirmed by the second album, “Oops!… I Did It Again”. Advertising contracts and tours abound. In 2001, “Britney” is still very well received.

The girl becomes a woman 

In 2001, Britney is no longer a little girl and intends to show it. She appears in a much sexier light on the cover of her third album. Soberly titled “Britney”, this album takes a more R&B turn, as evidenced by the single “I’m a Slave 4 U”. Despite this change of course, success is still there and more than 15 million copies are sold worldwide.

In 2002, she played in the film “Crossroads”, which will not spare critics. This will not prevent him from obtaining a small role shortly after in the third part of the adventures of Austin Powers. Britney also provides a title for the film’s soundtrack.


Place for provocations

That same year, Britney separated from Justin Timberlake and decided to take a break in the fall, at the end of his tour. A break that will not last long since at the beginning of 2003, she returns to the studio. In November, “In the Zone” is released. At the MTV Music Awards, Britney Spears kisses Madonna and Cristina Aguilera on the mouth and makes America tremble. A first provocation followed by more sexual hits like “Toxic” or “My Prerogative”. The title “Toxic”, named Best Dance Song at the 2004 Grammy Awards, as well as its very sexy clip allow the star to stay on top. In January 2004, Britney made headlines after marrying a childhood friend. A union contracted in Las Vegas following a rather drunken evening … and which will be canceled two days later! L’ The following year in 2005, the star married “for real” with Kevin Federline, one of her dancers, while releasing a first best of “Greatest Hits: My prerogative”. In 2007, Britney returned to the top of the charts with “Blackout”, then “Circus” in 2008, and “Femme fatale” in 2010. The public is still there and Britney seems to have calmed down in her personal life after many tumults. “Britney Jean” in 2013 was less successful than previous albums, but the singer moved to Las Vegas where she gave shows.


On September 14, 2005, Britney gave birth to her first child, Sean Preston. That same year, we find her in stores with the remix album “Be in the mix: The remixes”. For a few months, the singer remains in the shadows and devotes herself to her family life. On September 12, 2006, she gave birth to a second boy, Jayden James. 

But in early November 2006, Britney Spears filed for divorce from Kevin Federline in the Los Angeles court for “insurmountable disagreements”.

The star finally announces his great discographic return after three years of absence. It’s a very difficult time for the star, who has to deal with the breakdown of her marriage and continues to be harassed by the paparazzi. In February 2007, she was filmed shaving her head and eventually entered rehab. 

… and back to the light

In April, back on her feet, the star decides to go on an American mini-tour, where she performs her greatest hits.  

After the release of the first single “Gimme More” at the end of August, “Blackout” finally arrived in stores on October 30, 2007. The very electro and dance-oriented opus reached second place in the top album the week of its release in France, as to USA.

It also reached record downloads, and icing on the cake, this success is also critical. The second extract arrives in January 2008, it is “Piece of Me”, a title also very well received by the media.


The album of a whole career

At the end of September 2008, the singer released “Womanizer”, the first extract from her future new album, “Circus”, expected for the beginning of December. This first single from a more urban album would be, according to the person concerned, “the best and most successful of her career”. In any case, he signs a return to the top of the pop star.

For the occasion, the artist surrounded himself with prestigious producers such as Dr Luke, Danja (to whom we owe the hit “Gimme More”), Max Martin (who signed most of his hits), Bloodshy & Avant and Guy Sigsworth (who has worked with Madonna, Alanis Morissette and Bjork, among others). The release of the album coincides with Britney Spears’ 27th birthday on December 2, 2008.
