Britney Spears is the original triple threat; singer, dancer, and actress. She’s had the crowd on their toes since the 90’s where she was crowned the “Princess of Pop.”
It all started with her jump start into the entertainment industry on Disney’s.
From 1993–1995 Britney was a member of the Mickey Mouse Club when she was only 12 alongside Justin Timberlake, Ryan Gosling, and Christina Aguilera.
Ever since her breakout role as a child, Britney has been put under the microscope of the media. Her growth as an entertainer and pop icon has been epic, making her the epitome of an extraordinary superstar.
She was known as America’s sweetheart. As she was trying to reach a more mature audience the media criticized her as a “good girl gone bad.”
Throughout her career she has pushed major boundaries like raunchy music videos and risque dance moves.
Of course with every triumph there is trouble.
It hasn’t all been easy for Britney, pushing through unhealthy lifestyles and relationships, but she always manages to persevere in her career.
Britney has gone as far as to ban her entourage from drinking alcohol around her as she’s so determined to stay sober since rehab back in 2007.
TMZ stated, “the strict booze ban was “too much” for the pop princess’ entourage to take, and the second she retired for the night, they hit the bar hard.”
Student Sarah Khosravanizadeh, expressed her favorite Britney moment was the release of the Blackout bonus track album featuring popular songs like, “Piece of Me” and “Gimme More”.
Even fellow pop stars are huge fans of Britney such as; Demi Lovato, Miley Cyrus, and Selena Gomez.
Each star has expressed at one point how much of an impact Britney has made on their choices as an entertainer.
Miley Cyrus believes that her and Britney are kindred spirits.
They have both had similar struggles and Miley expresses that it is helpful and refreshing to know that there is someone in her life that “gets it,” because both of their lives have been watched so closely by the public.
Selena Gomez is the all-time super fan of Britney Spears.
Gomez says that Britney has been her inspiration to become a performer since she can remember.
She loves and adores Britney and is obsessed with her elaborate dance routines. Her favorite Britney moment is when the epic music video of “I’m a Slave 4 U” was released.
Upon releasing her new single and music video for “Work B**ch,“ which has over 20 million YouTube views, Britney is also going to be starting a Vegas tour this December going into February, of next year.
Recently Britney collaborated on Cyrus’ new album featuring on single “SMS (Bangerz)”.
