Britney Spears was catapulted into fame from a young age.

Since starring in The All-New Mickey Mouse Club at the ripe age of eleven, Britney began a highly successful career as a pop singer and performer with the release of the hit single "...Baby One More Time" in 1998.

She quickly became one of the most famous popstars of her decade.

With hits such as "Oops, I did it again", "Slave 4 U", and "Britney", the Mississippi born singer consistently topped the charts.

And as a result, she has been in the spotlight her entire adult life...

But not always for the best reasons. Britney's breakup from husband and childhood sweetheart, Justin Timberlake, was a publicly ugly one. Justin famously sold Britney out following the ugly breakup by doing an interview on 20/20 in which he revealed that he had, in fact, been intimate with Spears - even though the singer had repeatedly told the press that she planned on remaining a virgin until marriage.

And things continued to get worse for the young star...

Britney hasn't had an easy journey, to say the least. Despite the arrival of her first child in 2005, Britney's mental health began deteriorating, and the endless attention and pressure from the public and the press started to take its toll.

And in 2007, Britney finally snapped.

The pop star hit headlines for all the wrong reasons when she suffered a highly-public breakdown in the full glare of the world's spotlight.

Her breakdown was triggered by a number of different things.

She spent years battling mental health troubles, and after her split from husband Kevin Federline, the father of her two sons, she headed to rehab in Antigua. However, she checked herself out after only twenty-four hours and flew back to L.A.

The pictures of her hacking her own hair off shocked the world.

Britney had walked into Esther's Hair Salon in Tarzana, an upmarket neighborhood of LA, and asked the owner to shave her head because her hair extensions were too tight. But the singer wasn't backing down and grabbed the clippers so she could shave off her long locks herself.

Britney's breakdown was publicized all over the world.

The image of Britney, then aged thirty-seven, emerging from the salon with a freshly-shaven head and attacking a paparazzo's car with an umbrella has become one of the most famous snaps of that decade.

A few months following this, Britney was hospitalized.

In January 2008, she was seen being carried out of her house after reportedly overdosing on prescription amphetamines and locking herself in the bathroom with her youngest son, Jayden, as she refused to hand him back to Federline who had full custody of the children.

It was a long road to recovery for the pop star...

But she was eventually able to rebuild her relationship with her sons after regaining some of her custody rights and get healthy again, before eventually starting to focus on her music comeback. And, despite a few health issues along the way, Britney has become an icon in her own right.

She has gone on to win a number of awards.

And she has since continued making huge strides forward, winning back custody of her children, making more successful music, landing a lucrative residency in Las Vegas, and having a number of healthy relationships. She is even in a happy relationship with her actor boyfriend, Sam Asghari. Yes, Britney!

However, 2019 got off to a sour start for the star.

Britney's dad Jamie, who'd been her rock throughout all the bad times, was diagnosed with a life-threatening illness. Posting an old family photo, Britney announced that she would be cancelling some shows with the caption, "A couple of months ago, my father was hospitalized and almost died. We’re all so grateful that he came out of it alive, but he still has a long road ahead of him. I had to make the difficult decision to put my full focus and energy on my family at this time. I hope you all can understand."

Britney's dad was her conservator when times were tough.

A Los Angeles court had named Jamie as the permanent conservator (longtime care manager), of his daughter’s affairs in 2008, and named him permanent co-conservator of her estate, along with an attorney, Andrew Wallet. It's undeniable to see that the pair were close.

The whole situation has understandably been very stressful on Britney.

When will the woman catch a break?! Britney has been keeping a low profile since the drama kicked off at the start of last year and she hasn't commented on the situation.

But the star makes sure to keep fans updated on social media...

And she regularly posts amazing photographs of herself vacationing and spending time with family.

Britney is now living her best life...

And she looks phenomenal.

There's clearly a reason why she looks this good...

And that's the strict fitness regime that she shares often online.

She is in amazing shape...

And it seems that she is stronger than we anticipated.

Who remembers when back in 2009, Jamaican athlete Usain Bolt set the world record for the 100-meter sprint?

He ran the race in an eye-watering 9.58 seconds. Well, it's time to forget that history-making moment as Britney has now claimed she has just beaten it.

Explaining to her fans on an Instagram post that has now been deleted...

Britney said that she had just attempted a 100-meter dash, with her first attempt being 9 seconds long and her second being 5.97 seconds long.

Now those are some impressive stats...

And, of course, not everyone was convinced by these Olympic-standard numbers.

Many fans were simply left confused.

"I'm confused! 100-meter dash? You mean 50-meter dash? Or 40-yard dash? Something ain't adding up. Sorry for being lost," one wrote online.

But Britney eventually cleared up the confusion...

And it turns out it was one big joke.

In her most recent Instagram post...

Britney filmed herself trying on dresses and she said in the caption, "Obviously I was joking about running the 100-meter dash in 5.97 seconds …. the world record is held by Usain Bolt which is 9.58 seconds …. but you better believe I’m coming for the world record."

So that clears things up...
