Britney Spears

Occupation: Singer

Nationality: American

Born: December 2, 1981 (32)

Britney Spears was launched into the international pop limelight when her debut single '...Baby One More Time' reached number one in more than 15 different countries. She has since released seven multi-platinum albums and over 30 international hit singles including 'Oops... I Did It Again', 'Toxic', 'Womanizer' and 'Till The World Ends'.

Spears has been at the center of media attention almost constantly since her rise to fame, dating Justin Timberlake early in their careers. In 2004, her marriage to Jason Alexander lasted 55 hours until it was annulled. She then tied the knot with dancer Kevin Federline, and the couple had two children. Spears and Federline divorced in 2007, and experienced a public breakdown, from which she has since recovered.

Spears has appeared in How I Met Your Mother and Fox musical series Glee, and served as a judge on the second series of the US The X Factor. She will embark on two-year Las Vegas residency titled 'Piece of Me' to coincide with the release of her untitled eighth studio album on December 3, 2013.
