Britney Spears is one of those rare talented people who are able to start out as a child star and then make the transformation to stardom as an adult. Britney started her career at the age of 11, when she was picked for The New Mickey Mouse Club with other would be stars such as Justin Timberlake and Christina Aguilera. After the show she focused on her solo career and released the first single in 1998. After becoming a worldwide sensation in pop music, she somehow let her life unwind.

In 2004 her reputation and name was ruined due to an odd 2-day marriage with Jason Alexander and the following scandalous love affair with backup dancer. Later that year she married him and gave birth to their first son. But their marriage didn’t last long and after the birth of their second son, they began divorce proceedings. Britney was acknowledged to be mentally ill and her ex-husband received full custody over their children. Over several instances, she was photographed by paparazzi drunk in public. Britney didn’t let her career completely crumble, though. She caught herself in time. Today, she has made an excellent comeback.
