The Biography

Having amassed a fortune of over $100 million and record sales of 40 million, at the age of twenty-two Britney Spears is the world’s biggest female star. This is the first biography to chronicle how the little girl with a crucifix in each ear, described by her teacher at Disney as 'the sweetest, most wholesome, most innocent person that you'd ever want to meet' has become the ultimate in tabloid fodder.

Britney will follow her roller coaster life from her time on the Mickey Mouse Club where she first met Justin Timberlake to the moment she sashayed down the hallway dressed in school uniform and shot to fame becoming the all-American pop princess. Somehow it all fell apart – scarred by her break up with Timberlake, roundly booed at the London premiere of her first film, the downward spiral culminated with her infamous 55-hour Las Vegas marriage. The press went crazy over second marriage to dancer Kevin Federline, yet her fans remained loyal and she went on to win MTV Europe female of the year 2004 and the 2005 Grammy for best dance record. Speculating on what an uncertain future holds for Mrs Federline-Spears, Britney will be a gossipy and revealing biography of one of the most fascinating figures in pop.
