I want to talk to her!

 
Britney Spears in her early days How did she start off?
Much of her success is down to her determination to get to the top.

She started singing and dancing in local dance shows and church choirs as a youngster.

At the age of eight she auditioned for Disney's The Mickey Mouse Club. She was too young to join the show, but a producer spotted her talent and introduced her to a New York agent.

She then spent three summers at the Professional Performing Arts School Center and was in a few off-Broadway productions, including Ruthless (1991).

She tried out again for the Mickey Mouse Club and was successful this time, appearing on the show from the age of 11 to 13.
