Britney Spears has been a provocative dance-pop phenomenon and tabloid-headline mainstay since she burst onto the scene in the late '90s. Born in Mississippi in 1981, Britney first tasted fame as a member of the Mickey Mouse Club, featuring fellow superstars-in-training Justin Timberlake and Christina Aguilera. The iconic music video for her supremely catchy debut single, '...Baby One More Time,' features the teen singer dressed as a Catholic schoolgirl as she performs in a school's halls. Her sophomore release, 'Oops! ...I Did It Again,' continued her chart supremacy and cemented her place as pop's reigning princess. Plagued by emotional upheaval in her personal life, including public breakdowns and custody battles over her children (as well as conservatorship of the singer herself), the ever-resilient Britney continued her career resurgence in 2013 with a best-selling Las Vegas residency.
