Britney Spears is one of the biggest pop stars in the world and one of the richest. This is what she spends her money on and how she still collects millions of money today.
Before she became a household name, Spears made her national singing debut at the Star Search competition in 1992. While not winning, her performance in the show opened doors for her and she eventually became Disney’s The All-in New Mickey Mouse Club alongside other future stars such as Justin Timberlake and Christina Aguilera.
Making it big
Spears became a pop sensation in 1999 with the release of her single “Baby One More Time”. The song was an instant hit and sold more than 500,000 copies on the first day it was released.
The singer continued to release successful albums in the early 2000s and also played in films, including the movie Crossroads. She then appeared on a reality TV show with her former husband, Kevin Federline. In 2012, Spears served as a judge on The X-Factor and invested $ 15 million for one season.
Aside from releasing one hit after the other and her film and TV appearances, Spears earned some serious cash from endorsements. The pop princess had deals with top brands such as Pepsi, American Express, McDonald’s, Home Depot, Verizon, Amazon, Google, Visa, Colgate, Estee Lauder, Priceline and Comcast to name just a few.
Moreover, she has her perfume line in collaboration with Elizabeth Arden. And of course her residency in Las Vegas at Planet Hollywood, which started in 2012 and became one of the most successful residences ever in Sin City. Forbes noted that she earned more than $ 100 million from the show.
A significant part of her money comes from touring and in August 2018 she started her Piece of Me tour in the UK.
Her net worth
All this has given her an impressive net value of around $ 215 million. The number is, according to Celebrity Net Worth, and may differ from some other estimates that you have read. That’s because some publications only mention a $ 41 million fortune that was placed in a trust years ago after its public meltdown and is being checked today by its father, Jamie Spears. A common question that many people have is how long will the conservatory stay in place?
“As long as she brings in so much money and as long as lawyers and curators are paid, there is little reason to end it,” Elaine Renoire, president of the National Association to Stop Guardian Abuse, told The New York Times. “Usually the conservatory will continue as usual unless the conservator makes a fuss or the family.”
How she spends her money
So how does the “Oops! … I did It Again” artist spend her money? Well, if E! News noted, Spears stores at many of the same retailers that we all do, such as Target, Old Navy, Macy’s and TJ Maxx. She also picks up clothes for herself and her sons in stores such as Nike, Dicks Sporting Goods and Adidas.
Some of her other expenses, however, differ from ordinary people when she pays for bodyguards, a legal team, and maintaining the elevator of her house.
