Britney Spears Britney Spears – Her Childhood Biography

Britney Spears was born in McComb, Mississippi, and raised in Kentwood, Louisiana as a Southern Baptist. Her parents are Lynne Irene (née Bridges), a former elementary school teacher, and James Parnell Spears, a building contractor. Her brother, Bryan Spears, works as a manager for the Spears family interests and her sister, Jamie Lynn Spears, is an actress and singer. Her maternal grandmother Lillian Woolmore was an English war-bride, born in Tottenham, London, who met Spears's grandfather Barnett O'Field Bridges in England during World War II. Her paternal grandparents were June Austin Spears and Emma Jean Forbes.

Spears was an accomplished gymnast, attending gymnastics classes until age nine and competing in state-level competitions. She performed in local dance revues and sang in her local Baptist church choir. At age eight, Britney auditioned for the Disney Channel series The New Mickey Mouse Club. Although she was considered too young to join the series at the time, a producer on the show introduced her to a New York City agent. Spears subsequently spent three summers at NYC's Professional Performing Arts School and also appeared in a number of off-Broadway productions, including 1991's Ruthless!. In 1992, Britney landed a spot on the popular television show Star Search. She won the first round of competition, but ultimately lost. At age eleven, Spears returned to the Disney Channel for a spot on The New Mickey Mouse Club in Lakeland, Florida. Spears was featured on the show from 1993 to 1994, until she was 13. Other future celebrities on the show included fellow pop singer Christina Aguilera, 'N Sync members Justin Timberlake and Joshua Chasez, Felicity actress Keri Russell, and The Notebook star Ryan Gosling. After the show ended, Spears returned to Kentwood and attended high school for a year. In 1997, Spears briefly joined the all-female pop group Innosense. Later that same year, Britney recorded a demo solo and was signed by Jive Records. She began a U.S. concert tour sponsored by American teen magazines, and eventually became an opening act for 'N Sync and the Backstreet Boys.

The Britney Spears Biography after the Mickey Mouse Club 1999–2004: Britney Spears posed for her first major magazine publication, Rolling Stone in April 1999. Shot by renowned photographer David LaChapelle, the photo shoot garnered widespread criticism for the mixing of wholesome innocence and sex.[citation needed] The cover featured Britney in a skimpy outfit lying on a bed. More controversy arose when Spears declared that she would "remain a virgin until marriage". This has raised questions about her childhood traumas, overt sexuality and relationship with fellow pop singer Justin Timberlake. In early 2002, Spears's four-year relationship with Justin Timberlake ended. Timberlake's 2002 song "Cry Me a River" and its music video, which featured an actress resembling Spears, caused speculation that Spears had been unfaithful; Timberlake, however, denied that his song was meant to portray her.

June 2002 saw the opening of Spears's restaurant "Nyla" in New York City, which served Louisianan and Italian cuisine. However, she was pulled out of the business venture in November as a result of debts and management issues. Nyla officially closed down in 2003.

Durst was also hired to help write and produce tracks for her album In the Zone, which were eventually scrapped.
