Britney Spears is the teen pop princess and probably the most powerful influence on the children of todayâ€™s society. Her barely-there wardrobe, the implants, her spicy lyrics and her â€œgirl-next-doorâ€ faÃ§ade are the cause of an abundant amount of controversy. Britney has been the limelight ever since the age of eleven, when she was given a place on Disneyâ€™s â€˜Mickey Mouse Clubâ€™. Ever since, there has been no looking back. After signing with Jive Records, Britneyâ€™s music career was sent soaring after she attracted the worldwide attention from her first single and album after the same name, â€œâ€¦Baby One More Timeâ€. This hit album was followed soon after by two more; â€œOops?! I Did It Againâ€ and â€œBritneyâ€. She has accomplished so many of her goals since her stardom began and many people admire her for that. Through out this long period of stardom, Britney Spears has gradually changed her image from the â€œgirl-next-doorâ€ to an â€œerotic-sex-vixenâ€. Most people would agree that without change, life would be boring. Every normal human being changes a lot throughout their lifetime so what is wrong with Britney Spears changing too much? Some people love her change others despise it, but most everyone has a valid reason for either loving or hating the change.
From the outset, Britney Spearsâ€™ sex appeal is an important part of her image. The music video for her debut single, â€œâ€¦Baby One More Timeâ€, outfitted her in full Catholic-school regalia. This sent her well on the way to becoming an international sex symbol. Though Spearsâ€™ handlers seemed to be trying to have it both ways, there was a definite tension between the wholesome innocence Spears tried to project for her female audience, and the titillating sexuality that enticed so many male fans. Those marketing tactics made Spears a rather controversial figure, the subject of endless debates concerning appropriate role models for teenage girls.
