Some people are born star and Britney Spears is a perfect example of it, an American singer, songwriter, dancer, and actress who rose to fame with …Baby One More Time and Oops!… I Did It Again. She was a performer right from her childhood, her first on-stage solo performance was at the age of 3 and 5 in her school’s annual functions. Even her first professional appearance happened at the age of 11, which was in 1992 in the musical Ruthless!.
Britney, surprisingly, started her career with rejections from three out of four labels to whom her lawyer Larry Rudolph had sent her audiotapes. Jive Records, with whom she had her first singing contract, recognized her talent and introduced her to the international world of music. She became an instant hit and was labeled as a teen idol, a bubblegum pop singer of the late 1990s and one of the most controversial and successful female vocalists of the 2000s. Spears has been given a number of prestigious nicknames, most notably the “Princess of Pop”.
