Britney spears dating history
Although she made friends with most of her classmates, she compared the school to "the opening scene in Clueless with all the cliques. But I wanted more." In June 1997, Spears was in talks with manager Lou Pearlman to join the female pop group Innosense.
Casting director Matt Casella rejected her as too young, but introduced her to Nancy Carson, a New York City talent agent.
Carson was impressed with Spears's singing and suggested enrolling her at the Professional Performing Arts School; shortly after, Lynne and her daughters moved to a sublet apartment in New York.
Spears was hired for her first professional role as the understudy for the lead role of Tina Denmark in the Off-Broadway musical Ruthless! She also appeared as a contestant on the popular television show Star Search and was cast in a number of commercials.
Rudolph decided that he wanted to pitch her to record labels, for which she needed a professional demo made.
He sent Spears an unused song of Toni Braxton; she rehearsed for a week and recorded her vocals in a studio with a sound engineer.
