Britney Spears has achieved the unexpected and more in her career, and continues to dominate as the original pop queen. She has not only racked up awards, including a Grammy, six MTV Video Music Awards, seven Billboard Music Awards and a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, she has generated hundreds of millions of dollars. She started out young in the spotlight, with the media following her every move, but here are some things you don’t know about Britney Jean….
In 2002, Spears opened up her own restaurant in New York City, serving Louisiana-style Cajun food, following in her grandma’s footsteps. The eatery was called Nyla. However, Spears had a disagreement with management, and ended up terminating the partnership. The restaurant now serves Italian food. Well short lived, but an interesting venture.
Hit Me Baby, Almost Not Her Hit
It’s hard to believe that anyone else could have sung the famous hit “…Baby One More Time,” but it was originally written for the band TLC; the group rejected the future chart topper, we wonder if they regret their decision. The music video for “…Baby One More Time” also became a massive success. In the video, the 17-year-old Spears is dressed as a Catholic school girl. Now we wonder if that would be acceptable.
