Britney Jean Spears, born 2nd December 1981 is an American pop singer, songwriter, dancer, actress, and author, born in Kentwood, LA. At age eight she auditioned for a role on the Disney Channel’s Mickey Mouse Club show, and although the series’ producers deemed her too young for the job they were sufficiently impressed with the girl’s talent to assist her in gaining entry to New York’s Off-Broadway Dance Center and the Professional Performing Arts School. After a series of television commercials and stage appearances, at 11 Spears finally joined The Mickey Mouse Club, where she remained for two seasons.
She signed to Jive Records and in early 1999. Britney is best known for her songs such as ‘...Baby One More Time‘, ‘Oops!...I Did It Again‘, ‘I’m a Slave 4 U‘ and ‘Toxic‘. In 2004, she married back-up dancer and aspiring rap artist Kevin Federline, and the following year she gave birth to their first son, Sean Preston. Their second son, Jayden James, was born in 2006. Spears filed for divorce from Federline on November 7, 2006 citing irreconcilable differences.
