MS. However, after a while she got bored and was
- ready to
start performing again. She started commuting
New York and Lousiana for auditions. Finally, she
- got an
audition for an all girl group and she got the job. Her
however encouraged her that she would be better out
- on her
own, so she dropped the group and went solo.
- Other Info:

Britney Spears enjoys being a girl. She loves colors
- that pop and
shopping till you drop, romance novels and idyllic

beautiful teen from Kentwood, Louisiana (pop:1200),
- is poised to
liven up the pop world with the irresistible collection
- of songs on

sweet melody of "From the Bottom of My Broken
- to the
driving funk of "One More Time," to the funky
"Soda Pop," to her soulful take on the Jets hit
"You've Got It
Britney's lively, assured vocal style is intoxicating.
- to an artist
that everyone can relate to, that's young, happy
fun," she says.
- Despite a
refreshingly adolescent attitude, Britney's life has hardly
traditional. "I've done the prom thing, but it's only
she notes about her unconventional teenage lifestyle.
- "I need
to sing and I love to travel."
Performing since early childhood in local dance reviews and
- choirs, she
auditionedfor the Disney Channel's "Mickey Mouse
- series at
age eight in Atlanta. Too young fo her series, but too
- talented to
dismiss, a producer on the show helped Britney secure
- an agent in
New York City, where she spent the next three summers
- studying at
the renowned Off-Broadway Dance Center and at the
Performing Arts School. She also began appearing in
commercials and Off-Broadway shows including the 1991
"Ruthless," based on the 1956 thriller "The
- "At 10
I was playing this really bad child who seems real sweet
- but she's
evil too. It was so much fun," she recalls.
- Finally old
enough at age 11, Britney earned a coveted place
"Mickey Mouse Club." After two years performing on
children's TV show filmed in Orlando, Britney returned
- to Kentwood
for one completely normal year of high school
- at age 14.
"It was fun for awhile but I started getting itchy
- to get out
again and see the world," she says.
A devoted fan of pop music- her favorites include Michael
Mariah Carey, and Whitney Houston- Britney once
- again went
to New York to pursue her dream. "I had always
- wanted to be
a singer," she says. "It's what I always wanted
- to do since
I was little." Now a seasoned performer at age 15,
- an audition
for an all girl vocal group led to her developing a
- solo career
as a pop singer as well as continuing her high
studieswith tutors. "I need a lot of help in geometry
Spanish!" she admits.
Recording with Martin in Sweden this past spring and in New
- Jersey with
Foster White, Britney's ready to make her own
- special mark
on the world. "I love performing more than
- anything and
having people hear my music. I know I've had
- to give some
stuff up to do this, but I don't miss high school.
- When I was
home two years ago, every weekend we'd go out
- and do the
same thing. It's wonderful as long as you love what
doing, but I'd rather be doing this!"
