It’s Britney, B****
By Karina Sitaldas
Britney Spears — who does not know that name? This pop princess has gone through so much in her career. She went from super popular to a hot mess, and still managed to keep her pop princess title. In line with her upcoming concert on the 15th of June, we’ve listed 8 of Britney’s most memorable stages.
It was a rough start for young Britney with music labels, but she started as a mouseketeer on Mickey Mouse Clubhouse. She worked with Christina Aguilera, Justine Timberlake, Ryan Gosling, and a few other popular celebrities. She also got to work on some commercials and shows before she went to school, ended up wanting more, end eventually became known as a pop sensation in a schoolgirl uniform.
Britney as a Schoolgirl
2000s schoolgirl Britney had some of the biggest hits: “… Baby One More Time,” “Oops!… I Did It Again,” and “Lucky.” There was no one that didn’t know Britney, and at such an early age, she was a mix of innocent and naive, plus she was sexualized. She was young, she was doing her own thing, and she was creating really, really catchy hits that all our little selves were singing along to. Something eventually would have to go wrong.
Pop Princess in Action
Immediately following that stage, Britney was all over. At that point, the only way to go was up. She managed to become one of the biggest international pop sensations. In the year 2002, she was even ranked by Forbes as the most powerful celebrity, which I wouldn’t doubt. Britney was beautiful, hot, creating hit after hit, and could do no wrong — but actually, not really..,
A Hot Mess
Britney and Justin Timberlake had just broken up and it was all over the news… Needless to say that this was the beginning of her downward spiral. She shared a kiss with Madonna during the MTV video awards, got married to one of her childhood friends in Vegas and got it annulled in 55 hours (guess what happens in Vegas doesn’t always stay in Vegas), got engaged and eventually had two kids. It might have been a little too much for someone who was just in the spotlight for being amazing. During this time, she produced music like “Everytime,” “Toxic,” and “Me Against the Music.”
