College Hopeful Major: Business or Cummunications Britney Jean Spears was born in Louisiana in 1981. Her first bought with fame came at the age of 11 with the Mickey Mouse Club (Britney had been turned down 3 yearsearlier because she wa too young). From there, Britney took her talents to the pop charts with a smash debut LP.
Britney Spears is putting girls back on the map in the pop music world. With the effervescent and intoxicating sounds of her first album, ...Baby One More Time, Britney shot straight to the top of the charts--in just the first week of the album's release. Her ripe style and smart lyrics have captured the hearts of millions of fans, young and old.

You'll also find out what it was like for britney spears to work with the boys of 'N Sync, the rumors of romance, and her dazzling life beyond the stage. Smart, spunky, and pretty, britney spears is a teenage singing sensation who People magazine called "a mix of Debbie Gibson's wholesomeness and Alanis Morissette's grit." Her Baby One More Time album hit #1 on the Billboard chart right out of the starting gate. It may seem like success came overnight for this brown-eyed beauty, but britney spears's been working at it since childhood: before joining The Mickey Mouse Club at 11, britney spears was acting in commercials and off-broadway shows. And at 15, the singing bug bit--and there was no stopping britney spears. But behind the fame, Britney's just an ordinary teen--britney spears loves shopping, going to the beach, eating pizza, and talking about boys. britney spears's close to her family and is in no rush to grow up. Find out all about Britney--from britney spears career plans to britney spears personal life; how britney spears gets her cool look, who she spends her time with, what it was like on the road with N'Sync (she opened for them), and much, much more.

To say that britney spears’s life has changed over the course of the past two years is somewhat of an understatement. Since the release of her Jive Records debut "…Baby One More Time" (which made Britney the youngest artist in Soundscan history to have a certified RIAA 12x platinum album, and included four hit singles including the title track and "(You Drive Me Crazy"), britney spears has gone from being a star in the making to a superstar and the Queen Of Teen. In 1999 alone she was nominated for two Grammys (including the coveted Best New Artist), swept the 1999 MTV Europe Awards (where she nabbed Best Female, Best Pop, Best Breakthrough Artist and Best song), brought her explosive live show around the globe and appeared on every major televised award show both here and in Europe. Perhaps even more importantly than the accolades and the sales figures, britney spears has become an icon to millions of fans worldwide and her infectious brand of pop/R&B has become the template for girl pop. Now britney spears is back ready to take it to the next level. Featuring tracks from Diane Warren, Rodney Jerkins, Mutt Lange, Max Martin and Britney herself, "Oops!… I Did It Again" is destined to be the album of the summer and is much more than just a follow-up. It’s a record that shows the progress from phenomenon to artist. A bit wiser and more confident and self-assured, "Oops!… I Did It Again" is britney spears as you’ve never heard her: sexy, sassy and solidly in control. Ask britney spears about the direction of her new CD and britney spears is modest. "I'm not really doing anything different this time around but I am really growing up, as a person and that just all flows with the overall sound and feel of this record. There’s no master plan! I’m just gonna be me and hope it all works out!"

Signs are evident that it has already begun to "work out". The title track, which deals with romantic misintentions, was written and produced by longtime collaborators Max Martin and Rami and has already broken the record for first week adds at CHR/Pop radio with 155 adds. "It’s an incredible song!" britney spears declares, I think it’s even better than "Baby One More Time!" Also incredible is the video whose futuristic/Barbarella concept was Britney's idea.

The most noticeable aspect of the single, the video and the album is maturity, which is just what britney spears had in mind. "People have to remember that when I did my first album I was only 16. I had never been in the studio, it was all new to me and so before I let people help me out and honestly I think that was because I was just so new to the music industry, not only because I was young. But making records and being part of the process and becoming more in charge of my sound was something I had to experience and grow with and on this album I’ve had the chance to do that. This album is closer to who I am. It’s funkier!"

That funkier spirit is loud and clear on uptempo rump shakers like "Stronger" and "Don't Go Knockin’ On My Door" which find Britney in a frisky and fierce state of mind. But as she proved on her debut, Britney can deliver ballads with as much intensity as her more high energy cuts. On the aching "When Your Eyes Say It" (written by Diane Warren and produced by Steve Lunt and Robert Jazayeri) and the thoughtful "Don't Let Me Be The Last To Know" (penned by Shania Twain and Robert Mutt Lange and produced by Lange), Britney shows her depth. "I don’t want to just be some singer who sings a song just to sing it," Britney offers speaking to the emotional range of the album. "When you sing a song with feeling and do your all you connect and that’s crucial to me. Especially since I think that the songs on this album are ten times better than on my first album, so I really want my fans to feel and hear how much these songs mean to me." In keeping with that need to communicate is "Dear Diary", co written by britney spears. britney spears began writing melodies and songs while on the road and she has plans to learn guitar (she is proficient on the piano) in hopes of writing more songs in the future. "I think I’ve always had these songs that I've been writing in my head," Britney explains. "Now I feel ready to let people start to hear them." Along with her rigorous schedule and the release of her successful 2X Platinum home video Time Out With Britney Spears in late 1999, Britney and her mother have written a book entitled Heart To Heart. As if that weren’t enough, Britney has also created the Britney Spears Foundation in conjunction with the Giving Back Fund. Its first endowment is the formation of a performing arts summer camp for underprivileged kids in Massachusetts. "I’m so happy to be able to give kids the opportunity to learn about amazing world of dance and music that I’ve have been lucky enough to make such a big part of my own life." Britney began performing at an early age, and when she was 8, she auditioned for the Mickey Mouse Club. Although she was too young for the show, a producer helped her secure an agent in New York City where britney spears spent the next three years studying dance and music. britney spears also had bit roles in commercials, theatre and films. When she tuned 11, Britney was old enough to earn a spot on the Mickey Mouse Club and starred on the popular show for two years, relocating with her family to Orlando.

After her stint on TV, britney spears returned home but she still had dreams of making it in the music industry. "I've always wanted to be a singer," she declares. Armed with those desires and a powerful voice, Britney went back to New York when she was 15 and began to make the rounds of record labels. She sang accapella for executives at Jive Records who saw and heard right away that in the teenager from Kentwood, LA, there were the makings of a star. britney spears was signed soon after her audition and began work thereafter on what would become "…Baby One More Time."
