Britney Spears Biography
Britney Spears was born in December of 1981 and grew up in Kentwood, Louisiana. She began taking dance lessons when she was only 3. During her childhood she also took voice lessons, and gymnastics classes. She won numerous awards and medals in numerous state-level contests and talent shows. Spears auditioned when she was 8 for a revival of The Mickey Mouse Club but she was too young. However, this audition saw her signed to a New York City talent agent. She was cast in the Mickey Mouse Club in 1992 but returned home when the show was cancelled in 1995.
Spears made a demo in 1997 and was rejected by four music labels as they believed that people wanted girl bands. Spears was finally accepted in 1998 by a record label and made her first studio album, Baby One More Time. This album debuted at number one and sold more than 10 million copies in its first year. Spears has gone on to be one of the most successful pop singers in the world with more than 100 million albums sold to date. Spears has dabbled in the acting world, appearing in small roles including the 2002 movie Crossroad. She also did a reality show with then-husband Kevin Federline in 2005 and has her own line of designer perfume and lingerie.
Spears had some issues that required her father taking control over part of her estate in 2007. Although she has received therapy and medication since this conservatorship of about $41.5 million of her money remains out of her control. This doesn’t stop the pop diva from spending vast amounts of cash including $25,000 on pet care, $50,000 on clothing, and $20,000 for hair and makeup last year. She owns a mansion in Los Angeles worth $6.8 million, a half a million dollar home in Louisiana and more than $1.6 million worth of furniture and equipment. Britney is worth an astounding $165 million, which is sure to rise with her singing gig in Las Vegas, for which she is paid $476,000 per show.
