We hope your next 29 years will be even better than the first!
Britney Spears, your rise to stardom began at a young age when you were cast on Disney’s Mickey Mouse Club. You were surrounded by talent with future stars like your ex-BF Justin Timberlake, Christina Aguilera, and Keri Russell. You went on to bigger and better things as a pop star when you released “…Baby One More Time,” which became an instant sensation!
You continued through the years as a mega-star, putting out one hit after another like “Oops… I Did It Again,” “You Drive Me Crazy” and “Slave 4 U.” You even collaborated with your icon, Madonna!
But things kind of unraveled from there… With a 55-hour marriage to longtime friend Jason Alexander, your reality show Britney & Kevin: Chaotic with back-up dancer and ex-husband Kevin Federline, things just began to unravel. Your career came to a halt while you were pregnant with your two boys, Sean Preston and Jayden James. In 2006, just two months after the birth of Jayden, you filed for divorce from Kevin.
In 2007, even though your latest album Blackout was a sensation, your personal life was collapsing. You went to your website and explain to fans: “I truly hit rock bottom.” This was after you went through multiple stints in treatment facilities AND shaved your head in a fit of rage at a Tarzana, Calif., salon.
The following year, things got even worse. You lost custody of your children to Kevin, you were place in the hospital under involuntary psychiatric hold, AND conservatorship was granted to your father Jamie Spears.
Fortunately, things seriously turned around for you in 2009! You embarked on your Circus world tour, which was another huge success, and for the past couple years — overlooking a few fashion faux pas — you’ve really begun putting the pieces back together.
HollywoodLife.com just wants to wish you a very happy birthday, and we know you will have many more years of success! Here’s your life in hot pics!
