Britney Spears is also one of the biggest music celebrities turning 40 this year. Set to reach the big 4-0 on December 2nd, the pop icon has two children with her ex-husband Kevin Federline. The Mississippi-born performer is currently in a relationship with Sam Asghari.

Spears most recently made headlines after the documentary film Framing Britney Spears premiered on FX last February. A month after, Spears took to Instagram, writing, “I didn’t watch the documentary but from what I did see of it I was embarrassed by the light they put me in … I cried for two weeks and well …. I still cry sometimes !!!! I do what I can in my own spirituality with myself to try and keep my own joy … love … and happiness !!!!”

Last April, the court agreed to allow Spears to personally address the court regarding her conservatorship for the first time since 2008. The judge set the date for Spears to speak to the court for June 23rd.
