Bio

Britney Spears is an American recording artist and entertainer and a judge on the reality singing competition The X Factor USA, in 2012.

Born in McComb, Mississippi and raised in Kentwood, Louisiana, Spears first appeared on national television in 1992 as a contestant on the Star Search program, and went on to star in Disney Channel's television series The New Mickey Mouse Club from 1993 to 1994.

After a brief membership with the pop musical group Innosense, Spears signed a recording contract with Jive, releasing her debut album ...Baby One More Time in 1999.

The album established her as a pop icon and "bona fide pop phenomenon", credited for influencing the revival of teen pop in the late 1990s.

... Baby One More Time has sold over 27-million albums worldwide and featured five hit singles, including the title track, which is one of the best-selling singles of all time, making ...Baby the best-selling album by a teenage solo artist and the best selling debut of any female artist in history.

Spears went onto more success with her second album, Oops!... I Did It Again in 2000, which cemented her place as the best selling teenage artist of all time.

With a total of seven albums, including 2011's Femme Fatale, which yielded three No. 1 singles, Spears has sold over 100-million albums worldwide, earned five No. 1 album debuts, 2.9 million in U.S. single sales, and 24 Top 40 hits.

Her awards' shelf is quite heavy as well with one Grammy Award, nine Billboard Music Awards (including Billboard's Best-Selling Female Artist of the Decade for 1998-2008), six MTV Video Music Awards (including a 2011 MTV Video Vanguard Award), and countless others. She also received a star on the Walk of Fame at age 21.

Spears also holds the title to multiple Guinness World Records.
