Britney Spears has been performing since she was a child, and has been a major force in pop music after her 1998 debut single “…Baby One More Time” became a global smash when she was only 16-years-old.
Being world famous since she was a teen robbed Britney Spears of her youth, and now at age 39 she’s still on a now three year break from performing. The reason is actually so sad yet healthy, as Brit says she just wants to “be a normal person” in post.
Britney Spears shared a video from a 2017 performance of her mega hit “Toxic.” She wore a tiny, shiny red bodysuit, and owned the stage with her energetic dance moves and wild blonde hair whipping.
“Can’t believe this performance of Toxic is from 3 years ago !!! I’ll always love being on stage…but I am taking the time to learn and be a normal person,” Britney Spears confided in the caption.
Learning to be a normal person? That is just heartbreaking! Britney Spears has never had the chance to be “normal” as she’s worked nearly all of her life. As a girl, she competed on Star Search in 1992. A year later in 1993, she was cast in The All-New Mickey Mouse Club in its sixth season on the Disney Channel.
Then came “…Baby One More Time” when she was only 16, and her life changed forever, and nothing would ever be “normal” again. Between world tours, promotional appearances, endorsement deals and more, Britney became a business and not a person anymore.
Britney Spears continued in her caption, “I love simply enjoying the basics of every day life!!!! Each person has their story and their take on other people’s stories!!!! We all have so many different bright beautiful lives!!! Remember, no matter what we think we know about a person’s life it is nothing compared to the actual person living behind the lens.”
