At the tender age of 8 years old, Britney auditioned for the Mickey Mouse Club. She was rejected for being too young, but tried again and was signed on at the age of 11.

In 1999, Britney shot to the top of the charts with her album "Baby One More Time". The pop album won four MTV Europe Awards and four Billboard Music Awards.

In February 2007, Britney went a little wacky and shaved her head completely bald. Days later, she checked herself in, out, and back into rehab at Promises in Malibu.

Strolls Down the Aisle:

In January 2004, Britney married her childhood friend, Jason Alexander in Las Vegas. The marriage was quickly annulled.

In September 2004, she married her backup dancer, Kevin Federline. They have two sons, Sean Preston and Jayden James.

Music Video Spoof:

In this hysterical Britney Spears music video spoof from flash animator Dominic Tocci, the popstar is painted in a very funny light with regards to her relationship with K-Fed.

Baby Danger:

In February of 2006, photographers snapped photos of Britney driving her car with baby Sean Preston resting in her lap. The big question was "what was she thinking?" as she endangered the safety of her child. LA Deputies were dispatched to her home but no charges were filed.

Quotes From Britney:

"I don't really look at myself as a sex symbol."

"I'll always have feelings for Justin. He was my first love after all."

"Just because I look sexy on the cover of Rolling Stone doesn't mean I'm naughty."
