{"key":"6122","name":"Britney Spears","bio":"Britney Jean Spears (born on December 2, 1981 in Kentwood, LA, United States, and raised in Kentwood, Louisiana, United States) is a Grammy-winning multi-platinum American pop singer, songwriter, dancer and occasional actress. She debuted in 1998 with her single ...Baby One More Time. She is one of the most influential and popular post-2000 icons of music. Spears is one of the few young musicians to appear on lists of best selling music acts of all-time. She also holds several world records.She has officially released eight studio albums to date:\"...Baby One More Time\" (1999), \"Oops!...I Did It Again\" (2000), \"Britney\" (2001), \"In the Zone\" (2003), \"Blackout\" (2007), \"Circus\" (2008), \"Femme Fatale\" (2011), \"Britney Jean\"(2013).Along with 2 official compilation albums, 2 official remixes albums and 1 official extended play: \"Greatest Hits: My Prerogative\" (2004), \"B In The Mix: The Remixes\" (2005), \"Britney & Kevin: Chaotic\" (2005), \"The Singles Collection\" (2009) and \"B in the Mix: The Remixes Vol. 2\" (2011).As a child, Spears performed as a cast member of The New Mickey Mouse Club from 1993 to 1994, along with Justin Timberlake and Christina Aguilera.In September 2004, she married Kevin Federline. The couple had two sons, Sean (born September 2005) and Jayden (born September 2006). Spears filed for divorce in November 2006.Britney's debut album' \u2026Baby One More Time' was a huge commercial success. It debuted at number one in the U.S. with 120,500 copies sold in its first week on the Billboard 200, where it remained for 6 non-consecutive weeks, and it also debuted at number one in Canada, and reached the top ten in many other countries. The record has been certified 14\u00d7 Platinum in the United States. It is the highest selling album by a teenager both in the US and worldwide. The album also spent fifty-one weeks in the top ten of the U.S. Billboard 200 and sixty weeks in the top twenty. With this, it became the second best-selling album of 1999, selling 8,358,619 in the United States, only behind Backstreet Boys' 'Millennium'. It stayed on the Billboard 200 for two years until it was moved to the Pop Catalog chart. According to the RIAA, it is the 27th best-selling album in American music history, and 4th best-selling album by a female artist. This album, its lyrics, and its music videos maintained the typical virgin image of the late 1990s teen pop revival for Spears.Following the success of her debut album, Spears released the album 'Oops!\u2026 I Did It Again' in May 2000. It debuted at number one in the U.S. by selling 1,319,193 units during its first week of sales, breaking the SoundScan record for the highest album sales in its debut week by any solo artist. The RIAA awarded the album with a diamond certification with 10 million copies sold in the U.S.Spears released her third studio album 'Britney' in November 2001. Although not as successful as her previous albums, she assumed some creative control by co-writing five of the album's tracks. It surpassed Michael Jackson's album 'Invincible' when it had a successful debut at number one in the U.S. by selling 745,744 units during its first week. The album's success made her the only female artist in music history to have her first three albums debut at number one.Britney also became a Pepsi spokesperson in 2001, earning a $7-8 million endorsement deal. For the \"We Will Rock You\" Pepsi campaign, featuring Pink, Beyonce and Enrique Iglesias, Britney received $9.27 million. 2002 found Britney in her first movie role, the somewhat biographical Crossroads. Spears released her fourth studio album 'In the Zone' in November 2003, jettisoning the Max Martin-produced synthpop of her earlier releases. The album took in lesser-known producers such as RedZone and big names including Moby and R. Kelly. Spears co-wrote eight of the album's thirteen songs and co-produced several pieces of her material for the first time. 'In the Zone' reached number one in the U.S. charts during its debut week, selling over 609,000 copies. This made Spears the first female in the Nielsen SoundScan era to have her first four studio albums to debut at number one. All three singles, Me Against The Music, Toxic and Everytime, reached #1 on the Australian ARIA charts. 'Toxic' became one of Britney's signature songs and the video is considered by most to be her best.In July 2004, Spears became engaged to back-up dancer Kevin Federline. She and Federline were married on September 18 that same year. She also released a fragrance in September 2004, entitled Curious, and another, Fantasy, the following year.

It also featured three previously unreleased songs, a cover version of American R&B singer Bobby Brown's 1988 hit \"My Prerogative\", \"Do Somethin'\", produced by Bloodshy and Avant, whom she had worked with on In The Zone, and \"I've Just Begun (Havin' My Fun)\", which was a song recorded for Spears's fourth album, In The Zone, but did not make the final cut. By the end of that year, Spears had become one of the best-selling artists in the world.Spears and her now husband Kevin, starred in their own reality television show, Britney and Kevin: Chaotic in the first half of 2005. In the final episode of the show, Spears debuted the single Someday (I Will Understand) but the song and video were not released in the US. 'Britney & Kevin: Chaotic...' the bonus CD, includes Mona Lisa and Over To You Now. In November 2005, Spears released her first remix album, B In The Mix: The Remixes.

Another single, \"And Then We Kiss\", was only released in Asia, where it charted in many countries. The song peaked at number 15 on Billboard's Hot Dance Airplay chart despite it not being officially released in the U.S. It also peaked at #13 on Australia's Hot 30 Countdown despite not being officially released.In 2005, she won her first Grammy award for 'Best Dance Recording' for her song \"Toxic\".

During 2007, Britney continually lost more and more custody of her children, until her mental breakdown, which resulted in her taking Jayden hostage in a bathroom for over three hours, in Jan 08 stripped her of any visitations whatsoever for over a month. Visitations after the month were heavily monitored.On October 30, 2007 Spears released her 5th studio album entitled \"Blackout\" with its first single \"Gimme More\" being performed at the MTV Video Music Awards. \"Gimme More was Britney's most successful single on the Billboard Hot 100 by peak position since \"...Baby One More Time\".

The documentary was shot over three months and featured Britney discussing her personal life as well as her career. Circus debuted at number one on the Billboard 200 selling 505,000 copies in its first week. This became Spears' fifth number one album, making her the only act in Nielsen SoundScan history to have four albums debuted with 500,000 copies or more. It is also Spears' second album, the first being \u2026'Baby One More Time', to have charted two top-ten singles as \"Circus\", the follow up single to the number-one hit \"Womanizer\", debuted at number three on the Hot 100, making it her highest debut on the chart as well as her seventh top ten hit.Womanizer was her first #1 track on the \"Billboard Hot 100\" since ...Baby One More Time and made a new digital download record beating Touch My Body. It also held the record for biggest jump, going from #96 to #1. Kelly Clarkson has since beaten that record.In March, Spears launched her seventh tour to promote her Circus album. The Circus Starring: Britney Spears began its run on March 3, 2009 in Spears's home state of Louisiana. Opening night, as well as every following show in North America, sold out. The tour spans through North America (two legs), Europe, and Australia (first time touring ever). Britney is accompanied by her children on the tour, and they are in her custody for over 50% of the time for the duration of the tour while ex-husband Kevin trails her.

People should be able to do whatever makes them happy!\u201d After years of absence, Forbes magazine listed Spears as the 13th most powerful celebrity and the second most top-earning young musician as she made $35 million from June 2008 to June 2009.

The album peaked at number one in the United States (selling 276,000 copies), Canada, and Australia, and peaked inside the top ten on nearly every other chart.

They are one of the most enduring and successful bands to have emerged during the 80s, and particularly from the new wave\/new romantic era. The band name is derived from a French fashion magazine, D\u00e9p\u00eache mode, which means \"fashion dispatch.\"The band have been highly influential in the electronic dance music scene, especially synthpop, techno and trance, in part due to their innovative work, recording techniques and use of sampling. Their most successful album is arguably 1990's Violator, which reached the #2 position in the UK, #7 in the US, and sold over 8 million copies worldwide. The band has released a long series of high-charting singles over their three-decades long career. Enjoy the Silence is their most recognized song and is one of the most covered songs in history.

Alan Wilder joined the group initially in January 1982 as a live keyboardist but became an official member in December 1982.

In 2010 Wilder re-joined Depeche Mode on stage after 16 years, for a performance of Somebody during a show at London's Royal Albert Hall in aid of the Teenage Cancer Trust.Depeche Mode's origins date back to 1977, when Vince Clarke and Andrew Fletcher formed a band called No Romance in China, with Clarke on vocals and guitar and Fletcher on bass. In March 1980, Clarke, Gore and Fletcher formed a band called Composition of Sound, with Clarke on vocals\/guitar, Gore on keyboards and Fletcher on bass. Soon after the formation of Composition of Sound, Clarke and Fletcher switched to synthesizers. Dave Gahan joined the band in 1980 after Clarke heard him perform at a local scout hut jam session, singing to a rendition of David Bowie's \"Heroes\", and Depeche Mode were born. While playing a live gig at the Bridge House in Canning Town, the band were approached by Daniel Miller, the founder of Mute Records, who proposed them a verbal contract. The result was their first single Dreaming of Me, recorded in December 1980 and released in February 1981, reaching number 57 in the UK charts and followed soon by a real contract with Mute.As of 2006, it was estimated that Depeche Mode had sold over 100 million records (60 million albums \/ 40 million singles) worldwide and have had 48 songs in the UK singles chart.

Throughout her career, many of her songs have hit number one on international music charts, including Like a Virgin, Papa Don't Preach, Like a Prayer, Vogue, Frozen, Music, Hung Up, and 4 Minutes (feat. Justin Timberlake & Timbaland). Madonna has been praised by critics for her diverse musical productions while at the same time serving as a lightning rod for religious controversy, specifically and especially with the Catholic Church.Her career has been further enhanced by film appearances, despite mixed reviews. She won critical acclaim and a Golden Globe Award for Best Actress in a Motion Picture Musical or Comedy for her role in Evita (1996), but has received harsh feedback for other film roles. Madonna's other ventures include being a fashion designer, children's book author, film director and producer. She has been acclaimed as a businesswoman, and signed an unprecedented US $120 million contract with Live Nation in 2007.Madonna has sold more than 300 million records worldwide and is recognized as the world's top-selling female recording artist of all time by the Guinness World Records.

Considered to be one of the \"25 Most Powerful Women of the 20th Century\" by Time for being an influential figure in contemporary music, Madonna is known for continuously reinventing both her music and image, and for retaining a standard of autonomy within the recording industry. She is recognized as an inspiration among numerous music artists.After signing to Sire Records in 1982, Madonna's debut single Everybody was released in October of the same year. One year later, her eponymous debut album followed, and since then hits such as Holiday, Like a Virgin, Papa Don\u2019t Preach and Like a Prayer catapulted her to massive success.

{"key":"240","name":"U2","bio":"U2 is rock band from Ireland which formed in 1976 in Dublin, Ireland. Since the band\u2019s formation, they have consisted of Bono (real name Paul Hewson) (vocals, guitar, harmonica), The Edge (real name David Evans) (guitar, keyboards, backing vocals), Adam Clayton (bass) and Larry Mullen, Jr. (drums, percussion). The band is the biggest selling alternative rock act of all time, having sold 150 million albums worldwide as of 2008. They have won 22 Grammys and were inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 2005. As of 2009, they have released 12 albums and 58 singles.Foundation: The band originally formed in 1976 when Larry Mullen posted a bulletin in his school asking for musicians to form a rock band. The band then consisted of the four current members plus three additional guitarists, including The Edge\u2019s brother Dick Evans (later a member of Virgin Prunes), Ivan McCormick and Peter Martin. According to legend, Bono originally auditioned as a guitarist but couldn\u2019t play. He auditioned as lead vocals, but really couldn\u2019t sing. He was, however, incredibly enthusiastic about the band, extremely charismatic, a great writer, and was strangely able to reach the audience when the band played, something he is known for still today. Bono will reach out into the crowd and dance or mess with someone in the crowd at every concert. He was kept as a member. The extra guitarists would soon leave the band and the group would go through the names \u201cFeedback \u201d and \u201cThe Hype\u201d before finally settling on U2.The 70s & 80s: 1978 was a jumping point year for the band, finally finding their sound \/ voice. U2 won a talent contest in 1978: \u00a3500 and funds to make a record. Paul McGuinness became the band\u2019s manager and U2 released an EP called Three and the single Another Day, the following year. U2 went on to release their first album, Boy and then more critically acclaimed albums incl.: October, War, Under A Blood Red Sky, and The Unforgettable Fire (featuring the song PlayMLK dedicated to Martin Luther King Jr). Seen by many as a political band with more charisma than others, they were called \u201ca different kind\u201d of band. After a short break U2 returned with The Joshua Tree & the USA music inspired Rattle And Hum (also a movie of the same name, based on the tour).The 90s: Promising \u201dto dream it all up again\u201d, they added industrial and dance styles to their music. Trying to drop a goody two shoes image, they went to Berlin (Germany), supposedly to develop new self-expressions. From there they started to make fun of themselves and had a good time of it in albums like Achtung Baby (meaning \u201dwatch out, baby\u201d, artwork feat. make-up artist Nassim Khalifa) & Zooropa. Bono took on many stage personae such as \u201cThe Fly\u201d, \u201cMirrorball Man\u201d and \u201cMr. MacPhisto\u201d for the gigantic ZOO TV Tour. Later they continued to make fun of Pop culture and all its extremes with the album Pop and consequent PopMart tour which was announced to be launched at a Kmart store and included a giant golden arch across the stage.The 00s: At the end of the 90\u2019s into 00\u2019s U2 became less image and more reality. With the death of Bono\u2019s good friend Michael Hutchence, the lead singer of INXS, Bono wrote more songs from the heart surrounding ideas like life and death, children, hope, and the real world past all the pop culture and TV. Some say they\u2019ve returned to a more band-centric sound with albums like All That You Can\u2019t Leave Behind which features a song, Kite, dedicated to Bono\u2019s father who passed away shortly after the album\u2019s conception and 2004\u2019s How To Dismantle An Atomic Bomb.The 10s: U2 went on the U2 360\u00b0 Tour in 2009 and 2010. This tour set records for the highest-grossing concert tour. The group is currently working on an upcoming album produced by Danger Mouse.The Name: There are many theories as to the origin of the name U2. For example, U2 was an intelligence airplane that was in use by the United States during the Cold War. Other obvious candidates include \u201cYou too\u201d and \u201cYou two\u201d, etc. Nonetheless the official line on the name\u2019s origins remains unknown. The band has been quoted as saying that they did think of the U2 spy plane, but remain hushed about other reasons\u2026 U2www.u2.com","featuredImage":"https:\/\/assets.allamericanmusic.com\/images\/240_h_0.jpg","feeRange":"please contact"}
