Spears first sprang to fame as a teen star and went on to become one of
the biggest forces in pop music.
Her 1999 album "Baby One More Time" put her on the global music map,
selling a whopping 60 million copies.
Her 2000 single "Oops!... I Did It Again" broke sales records on its
release, becoming the fastest-selling album by a female artist in history
by selling1.3 million copies in its first week in US record stores and
ultimately shipping 20 million globally.

life, including her marriage to dancer Federline, her longtime teen
romance with pop star Justin Timberlake and her abortive 2004 marriage to
an old friend.
