Britney Spears, born in McComb, Mississippi in 1981, is an American singer central to the teen-pop boom of the late 1990s.
From early talent shows in Louisiana to auditioning for The All New Mickey Mouse Club, she achieved early fame alongside stars like Justin Timberlake and Christina Aguilera.
After the show’s end in 1995, Spears’s career accelerated with her debut single “…Baby One More Time” in 1998, followed by numerous best-selling albums.
She also ventured into acting and took on a Las Vegas residency. However, Spears’s personal life, including a tumultuous marriage to Kevin Federline and subsequent erratic behavior, led to a court-ordered conservatorship in 2008, primarily overseen by her father.
Controversy surrounded the arrangement, leading to the #FreeBritney campaign. In 2021, documentaries highlighted the issue and by the end of that year, the conservatorship ended.
