Why is Britney Spears Famous
Britney Spears was a child star on Disney. But it was when she moved into singing that her career launched to a meteoric height.

Britney Spears Brief History
Britney Spears was a well-known Disney child star, appearing on the popular Mickey Mouse Club.
This Louisiana native went on to become one of the most well-known singers of current times, both for her music, total domination of dance videos, and due to her antics.
Not everything about her career was golden, but she continues to re-invent herself. The public has a soft spot for her because they always welcome her and her music back with open arms.
With the meteoric rise of her hit “Baby, One More Time”, her sensual look and bubblegum pop music launched her into superstardom. Her albums released hit after hit after hit.
When it seemed that she could do no wrong, she had an emotional breakdown, shaved her head, and went after the paparazzi. Her lack of privacy was astounding at times, as almost every second of her life was documented.
When she’d as much trip on a curb at the grocery store, people were there to document it and speculate what happened. If you or I had tripped, it wouldn’t be an issue. But this is Britney Spears.
After a humiliating moment in time, and her father taking over the reigns of her business once again, she recovered and started a Las Vegas residency which did well.
She is a mother of two boys. Her younger sister Jamie Lynn Spears followed in her footsteps as a Disney child star, then hit controversy after getting pregnant quite young.
