It was 10 years ago today (October 23, 1998) that our girl Britney Spears release her first ever single "...Baby One More Time." I dug the single out of the End's archives today, and played it for Random Retro. I cracked up reading what it says about her so much that I had to share it with you! Here's what her record company said about her on the CD single back in 1998...
Born 16 years ago in Kentwood, Louisana, Britney Spears always wanted to sing. Performing since early childhood in local dance reviews and church choirs, she auditioned for the Disney Channel's Mickey Mouse Club series at age eight in Atlanta. Too young for the series but too talented to dismiss, a producer on the show helped her secure an agent in New York, where she spent the next three summers studying at the renowned Off-Broadway Dance Center and at the Professional Performing Arts School. She then began appearing in national commercials and Off-Broadway shows. At 11, she was accepted into the Mickey Mouse Club and spent two years performing on the popular children's TV show filmed in Orlando. When Britney turned 15, she auditioned for an all-girl vocal group that led to her developing a solo career as a pop singer, while continuing her high school studies with tutors. Early this year, Britney was promptly snapped up by Jive Records. Britney Spears is ready to make her own special mark on the world. "I want to be an artist that everyone can relate to, that's young, happy, and fun," she says. With Britney's ambition and true talent, success will be hers.
Little did then know back exactly what mark sweet little Britney would go on to leave on the world!! And then my favorite part, which was on the back of the single:
Untamed and untarnished as they come, the bright, beautiful teen Britney Spears is poised to liven up the pop world with the irresistible collection of songs on her Jive Records self-titled debut release, due out this fall.
Britney untarnished!! Haha! Ah, the good ol' days! But we do have to give our girl Britney props for cleaning her life up, and wish her the best for her latest album coming out December 2nd!
