Brittney Spears By: Jennifer Sonnier Birth Name Britney Jean Spears Nickname Brit Pinkey The Princess of Pop Britney Spears was only 17 when she reached #1 on the U.S. pop music charts with her 1999 debut album ...Baby One More Time. Her catchy tunes and hubba-hubba physique made Spears one of America's biggest pop stars, and she became a near-constant presence on MTV, radio broadcasts and magazine covers around the world. Britney Spears's second album, Oops!...I Did It Again, was released in May of 2000 and went gold in its first week. In 2003 she released In the Zone, but by then her personal life was getting more press than her singing career. On 3 January 2004 she married childhood friend Jason Alexander (not the Jason Alexander of Seinfeld), then had the marriage annulled the same day. Later in the year she married Kevin Federline, a professional dancer whose claim to fame was fathering two children with Moesha star Shar Jackson. Britney Spears and Federline had two sons, Sean (b. 14 September 2005) and Jayden (b. 12 September 2006), but Spears filed for divorce in November of 2006 (their divorce became final on 30 July 2007). in 2007 Spears was in the gossip columns on a weekly basis and made headlines by shaving her head, entering rehab and, after repeated missteps with the courts, losing custody of her children to Federline. With very little publicity, she released Blackout, her fifth studio album, in November 2007. Slowly she seemed to get her performing mojo back, launching a world tour in 2009, making a guest appearance on the TV show Glee in 2010, and settling back into life as a major pop performer. Her other albums include Circus in 2008 and Femme Fatale in 2011. How Drugs Affected Her Life Many people wonder how a person like Britney Spears, who appears to have it all, would enter into the world of addiction. Nonaddicts have difficulty understanding how Britney Spears can choose to get "high" over parenting her own children. Many nonaddictive people think that parenting instincts come natural and nothing, including Britney Drugged, could interfere with a parent's ability to love and raise their children appropriately.

The term “crack” refers to the crackling sound produced by the rock as it is heated. Ecstasy - Ecstasy is taken orally, usually as a capsule or tablet. It was initially popular among Caucasian adolescents and young adults in the nightclub scene or at weekend-long dance parties known as raves. More recently, the profile of the typical Ecstasy user has changed, with the drug now affecting a broader range of ethnic groups. Ecstasy is also popular among urban gay males—some report using Ecstasy as part of a multiple-drug experience that includes marijuana, cocaine, methamphetamine, ketamine, sildenafil (Viagra), and other legal and illegal substances.
