If you happened to be in elementary school, high school or, well, basically just alive when Britney Spears was introduced to the world wearing a very sexy catholic schoolgirl uniform, you probably either wanted to be her or to be with her.
For a time, Britney could do no wrong. Everything she did was eaten up by all her adoring fans. Red latex jumpsuit? Fans loved it. Rolling Stone cover holding a Teletubby with her bra showing? Fans loved it. Wearing a damn snake like it was no biggie during a VMA performance? Fans loved it. Of course, Britney’s choices at this point in her career weren't completely without criticism, but her critics were mostly prudish parents who didn’t understand the goddess that was Britney.
Then the s--t hit the fan and all the prudish parents were right. Soon, the same Britney Spears who made every teen girl want a bellybutton ring was bald and married to Kevin Federline. How had this happened? How was this the same girl who had once enchanted us with pop melodies, iconic music videos and out of this world performances? Well, being in the public eye for nearly two decades will result in many different stages in anyone's public persona. No one can remain the same person they were when they were 16 and wearing pigtails. Change is to be expected and it has resulted in many specific stages in Britney’s career:
2 Bald Britney
1 Comeback Britney
All's well that ends well. After cleaning up her image, Britney signed on to do a two-year show at Planet Hollywood in Las Vegas and is making a whooping $300,000 per show. She recently announced that she would be extending Britney: Piece of Me for two more years, because who wouldn’t if they were being paid $300,000 a night. She recently had another cameo on Jane the Virgin, making her acting chops known again with one guest starring role at a time. Britney now takes to Instagram to connect with fans and project the image that she’d like to be known for to her fans. She often posts about exercise and her children, going back to the roots of that sweet girl everyone met 16 years ago. Britney, now 34 years old, projects a certain wholesomeness that comes from being a caring mother but is still the sultry songstress who puts on a show every week in Vegas. It seems she's now embracing her sweet-but-sexy persona we were introduced to with "...Baby One More Time" once again.
