Many may still have a vivid memory of Britney Spears as a 16-year-old school girl with pig–tails.
But incredibly, she's now approaching 30 and is apparently looking forward to it.
"I hear the older you get, the wiser you get and the more you know what you want - so hopefully it'll be a good year," she says.
Britney shot to fame at the tender age of 10 when she joined Disney's Micky Mouse Club, and soon became a house–hold name with the release of her debut single Baby One More Time when she was just 16.
Turning 30 in December, the singer is currently embarking upon her Femme Fatale tour – her seventh concert tour to date – and will be playing in the UK from October 25th.
