Believe it or not, young Britney Spears got a wholesome start on ‘The Mickey Mouse Club.’ Then, in 1998, she burst onto the pop music scene as a barely legal teen wearing a naughty schoolgirl outfit in the infamous video for her first hit single ‘Baby One More Time,’ and the world was never the same. Since then, the pop princess has led a rollercoaster of a career and personal life, pumping out hit songs and record-shattering albums along the way. After ending a highly publicized relationship with fellow pop star Justin Timberlake, Spears had a Vegas marriage that lasted all of 55 hours. She then married dancer Kevil Federline, only to divorce him 2 years later. She became even more of a gossip sensation after exhibiting questionable mothering techniques with her 2 children. After multiple stints in rehab, she managed to bounce back around 2008, just in time for the release of yet another successful album called ‘Circus’ - a title appropriately referential to Spears’ topsy-turvy life.
