Singer Britney Spears became a pop-culture phenomenon when she rose to fame as a teenager in the late 1990s.
Her first two albums, 1999's "...Baby One More Time" and 2000's "Oops!... I Did It Again," became two of the best-selling albums of all time, and she has continued to make music and perform over the last two decades.
Six of Spears' albums have reached No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart, and she's been nominated for eight Grammy Awards, winning one.
A recent documentary explored the controversy that has swirled around Spears — specifically the 13 years that her father, Jamie, served as her conservator, exercising control over her daily affairs and financial decisions. After the documentary first aired, celebrities and fans began vocalizing their support for Spears.
In June 2021, Spears pleaded with a judge to end the conservatorship.
"I just want my life back," she said. "It's been 13 years and it's enough."
A few months later, Jamie Spears unexpectedly filed a petition to end the arrangement. It was officially terminated in November 2021.
