Britney Spears She is considered one of the most influential artists of the early 21st century. Britney Jean Spears was born on December 2, 1981 in the American town of McComb, Mississippi. With a thirty-year career, unmatched talent and a particular style, this singer of the pop genre managed to position her songs at the top of the world ranking and established herself as one of the most influential figures on the planet to such an extent that her arrival on the fame ushered in a new musical era at the beginning of the 21st century.
The “princess of pop” celebrated her 41 years in a new stage yesterday: after having spent thirteen years under the legal guardianship of her father, James Spears, the artist is now free. Here are some of the most important milestones in her life.
Since she was little, Britney wanted to sing and dance, and she stood out for having a great talent for the dramatic arts. This is how she, in 1992, managed to integrate the cast of the famous program “The Mickey Mouse Club”, where she worked with Christina Aguilera, Justin Timberlake, Ryan Gosling and Keri Russell, who -over time- also became stars. Finally, this cycle was canceled in 2004, and that led Spears to concentrate on her solo career.
In 1998, he released his debut single, “Baby One More Time” with the collaboration of Max Martin, a renowned music producer. The video clip -in which she embodied the story of a student from a Catholic school- established the singer. Spears was one of the few female artists who managed to position a single at the top of the Billboard Hot 100 and in the “ranking” of 20 countries. In early 1999, she released her first studio album, which was also called “Baby One More Time” and included songs like “You Drive Me Crazy” and “Sometimes”.
In the year 2000, the artist released her second album “Oops!… I Did It Again”, with hits like “Lucky” and “Stronger”. With this project, Britney began a new stage in which she was more mature, which could be seen in her revealing cover of Rolling Stones magazine. In 2001, she gave an unforgettable performance at the MTV Awards. There she sang and danced to the song “Slave 4 U” while she held a snake in her arms: an image that became one of the icons of pop culture.
In 2002, he joined the cast of “Crossroads” to do his first acting job. The film based on the script “Friends are Forever”, by Shonda Rhimes, had the participation of Zoe Saldaña, Kim Cattrall and Dan Aykroyd in its cast. In 2003, she appeared with Madonna and Christina Aguilera at the opening of the MTV Video Music Awards and, during this show, the singer of “Like a Virgin” kissed both singers, which generated great repercussions in the public.
Spears got engaged to dancer Kevin Federline and their relationship was portrayed in the reality Britney and Kevin: Chaotic. They were married in September 2004 and had two children, Sean Preston Federline and Jayden James Federline, but -finally- announced their divorce in November 2006. At that time, the singer suffered a media persecution in which she was photographed at all times, especially when she was out on nights out with her friends, Paris Hilton and Lindsay Lohan. One of the most remembered moments of that time was when, before the eyes of the paparazzi, she decided to shave her head herself.
In the midst of the scandals, in 2008, the Los Angeles court granted legal guardianship of Britney to her father, since he considered that she was incapable of taking care of herself. Anyway, after an extensive legal battle and the support of the #FreeBritney movement, driven by her fans, in 2021, the artist managed to regain her freedom. On September 12 of that year, she announced her engagement to Sam Asghari, whom she married on June 9, 2022. The celebration was intimate, but full of stars: Drew Barrymore, Selena Gomez, Donatella Versace, Paris Hilton and Madonna.
In this new stage of her life, and after several years away from music, the so-called “pop princess” made her return in a collaboration with Elton John, with whom she sang a new version of the single “Tiny Dancer”, and is currently working on the publication of an autobiographical book, which promises to be a resounding publishing success for which he will receive a sum of $15 million.
