Before They Were Stars: Middle child of James and Lynn Spears, Britney Spears started winning awards for her singing and dancing from an early age. Her mother moved Britney and her sister Jamie to New York to enroll Britney in Manhattan’s Professional Performing Arts School. Soon, she appeared on Star Search and landed a spot on The Mickey Mouse Club in 1992 with Christina Aguilera and future public romance Justin Timberlake.
Where Are They Now: In 1999, Britney released her debut album, …Baby One More Time, which debuted at number one on the Billboard 200 list catapulting Spears into pop stardom. Her followup albums were wildly successful and lead to buzz-worthy performances at MTV’s VMAs, a starring role in 2002’s Crossroads, a short-lived restaurant, and numerous fragrances. Spears has been married twice and has two children, often gracing tabloids because of personal and family problems. In 2011, she released her 7th album and planned a world tour. More recently, she split from her agent boyfriend after getting engaged, and is busy raising her two sons.
