So How Old Was Britney When . . . She (Really) Lost Her Virginity, Met K-Fed, Etc.


One thing I often wonder about is celebrities’ ages, especially female ones. Lady celebs tend to be glammed up and sexualized as early as their mid-teens so it’s rather difficult to determine how old they are. One person that always come to mind is Britney Spears, whom I love, because she was groomed to become a star from such a young age and coached by her mom and ‘handlers’ to be overtly sexual (yet, claim that she is a virgin). It isn’t shocking that Britney had a break down after becoming an international superstar at the age of seventeen. So I decided to shed a little light on how old Britney actually was during certain milestones of her life. (I went by the year in which each event took place, Britney was born in 1981 and I did the math from there so her actual age could be younger since her birthday is late in the year, December 2nd.)

When she recorded ‘Baby One More Time’ . . . 16

When she wore that skimpy  uniform . . . 17

When she had her first controversial magazine cover . . . 18

The American Family Association (AFA) referred to the shoot as “a disturbing mix of childhood innocence and adult sexuality” and called to “God-loving Americans to boycott stores selling Britney’s albums.”

When she said she was a virgin . . . 18

When she announced she wasn’t a virgin . . . 21

Britney said, “”I’ve only slept with one person my whole life. It was two years into my relationship with Justin, and I thought he was the one.”

When she really lost her virginity . . . 14

According to the NY Daily News, “In a tell-all book, Spears’ mother, Lynne, reveals her daughter surrendered her chastity to a high school football stud when she was just 14.”

When she danced with a python around her body . . .  20

When she made out with Madonna . . . 22

When she married K-Fed . . . 23

When she had her first baby . . . 24

When she had her second baby and divorced Kevin Federline . . . 25

When things started to go awry. (Oh no, baby girl!) . . . 26

Her aunt died of ovarian cancer.

She shaved her head.

She checked into rehab.

She lost custody of her babies.

When she made her disturbing comeback with ‘Black Out’ after 3 years . . . 26

When police arrived at her house and her conservatorship began . . . 27

She refused to give her kids to K-fed.

Police showed up to her house because she appeared to be high on a “substance.”

She was committed to Cedars-Sinai psychiatric hospital under involuntary psychiatric hold.

The court placed all of her assets under her father and attorney’s control.

K-Fed got full custody of the kids.

When she made her real comeback . . . 27

Circus was an amazing album you guys.

So how old is she today? 31 (about to be 32 y’all.)

She is doing much better and is still flawless. However we do have one question: When was the last time Britney Spears wore a bra?
