Britney Spears started her acting career as a child, appearing in both stage and television plays.
Due to her age, Spears was passed over for a reboot of The Mickey Mouse Club.
In December 1992, Spears signed with a New York talent agency and was cast in The Mickey Mouse Club. Her debut album, “Baby One More Time,” was a big success, peaking at number one on the Billboard 200 in 1999.
The record was certified two times platinum by the RIAA after a month. “Baby One More Time” debuted at #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 and sold 500,000 copies on its first day, making it the fastest-selling female artist single ever.
Oops!… Spears’ subsequent singles were “I Did It Again,” “I’m a Slave 4 U,” “Me Against the Music,” and “Piece of Me.” Spears tried her hand at acting in the 2002 film Crossroads.
