Best Known As: Pop superstar singer of ...Baby One More Time
Name at birth: Britney Jean Spears
Spears was only 17 when she reached #1 on the U.S. pop music charts with her 1999 debut album ...Baby One More Time. Her catchy tunes and hubba-hubba physique made Spears one of America's biggest pop stars, and she became a near-constant presence on MTV, radio broadcasts and magazine covers around the world. Spears had an early head start on teen stardom: she was in the cast of the Disney Channel's The Mickey Mouse Club during its 1993 and 1994 seasons. (Future pop stars Christina Aguilera, and Justin Timberlake and J.C. Chasez of the band 'N Sync got their starts on the same show. Spears and Timberlake were romantically linked on and off from 2000-2003.) Spears's second album, Oops!...I Did It Again was released in May of 2000 and went gold in its first week. In 2003 she released her third album, In the Zone. She also starred in the 2002 teen road-trip film Crossroads.
On 18 September 2004, Spears held a marriage ceremony with Kevin Federline, a professional dancer. Legal papers formalizing the wedding were filed on October 7th the same year. It was the first marriage for Federline, who previously fathered two children with Moesha star Shar Jackson... Spears married childhood friend Jason Alexander in an impromptu ceremony in the Little White Wedding Chapel on the Las Vegas Strip in the early morning of 3 January 2004. The couple agreed to an annulment later the same day. Alexander is no relation to Seinfeld star Jason Alexander... In July 2003, the Hollywood Reporter noted that Spears was being considered for the role of Daisy Duke in a proposed movie based on the TV series The Dukes of Hazzard, though late in 2004 it seemed the role would go to Jessica Simpson instead... Spears' middle name is often incorrectly reported to be "Jeau" rather than "Jean."
