It’s hard to believe that someone who was once labelled a ‘one hit wonder’ would be come such a huge pop icon. Well, Britney Spears has proved her critics wrong and has stretched her ’15 minutes of fame’ to 6 years. Now Britney has achieved what all her peers such has Christina Aguilera and Justin Timberlake has yet to achieve, she has sold over 100 million records.
