As any Britney Spears fan knows, Brit - like so many of her '90s bubblegum pop colleagues - got her start on the sixth season of Disney Channel's "The All-New Mickey Mouse Club." Although Spears has had her fair share of troubles, she's had one of the biggest pop careers of the past 15 years, and shows no sign of slowing down.
