Britney Spears, born on December 2, 1981, is a singer from the United States. People often call her the “Princess of Pop” because she played a big part in bringing back popular music for teens in the late 1990s and early 2000s.
She’s sold more than 100 million music records all over the world, including over 70 million in the United States.
This makes her one of the best-selling artists ever. She’s gotten a lot of awards, like a Grammy Award, and she’s also known for her music videos that have lots of dancing.
When she was fifteen, Spears signed a deal with a record company called Jive Records in 1997. Her first two albums, “Baby One More Time” in 1999 and “Oops!… I Did It Again” in 2000, were really famous and sold a lot.
The second album broke the record for selling the most copies in the first week by a female artist in the United States. After that, her music style got more mature, and she starred in a movie in 2002 called “Crossroads.” She was also in control of her fifth album, Blackout,” in 2007, which many people think is her best.
Later on, Spears released successful albums like “Circus” in 2008 and “Femme Fatale” in 2011. She even had songs that debuted at number one on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, which is rare.
She had a long-running concert show in Las Vegas and made more albums. But there were some problems in her life that the public knew about, and she was put under the control of a conservatorship.

In 2021, she spoke out about the tough things she went through, and the conservatorship ended. In the United States, Britney Spears is one of the best-selling female artists.
