We love seeing our favorite girlie stars succeed, but it's much more touching when we see them succeed after overcoming failure.  Failures make them human, just like you and me.  But unlike you and me, their failure is exposed for the whole world to see.  

If I were them, I'd crawl into a hole and never come out.  Yet somehow these women bounced back better and stronger.  Their stories are inspiring; Their comebacks are encouraging.  And for an average girlie girl like me, the take away is that every failure is an opportunity for a better, stronger comeback.

Here is one of those girls with a great comeback story...

16-year old Britney Spears came onto the scene in 1997 like a breath of fresh air 

By 2001, she was the most desirable female star with the hottest abs.

A few short years later, however, she was a twice divorcee with 2 children and no hair.

And let's not forget that embarrassing initial attempt at a comeback that resulted in ridicule

But she didn't give up, did she?  Over the past year, she was back at the gym, the dance studio and on our TV Screens, looking just as sexy now as in her heyday

And just a couple of months ago, Britney not only bounced back with top selling album, she also won a brand, new VMA.

I must admit that I never was a fan of Britney's music.  But over the years she has shown us vulnerability that only a normal human being can experience.  And better yet, she has inspired us with a heck of a comeback story.

  1. Hi Tris, I am also no Britney fan, not her music either. To be honest, I do not really like her. But if she could make a good come back, I'd say good for her.
    And I have respect for those ppl that support her, it is just that I never really could get to like her.
    Great post though!
    Thanks for supporting me on my last post, hope you are having a wonderful weekend.

  2. she always bounces back but she was undoubtedly fantastic back then:) didn't like her bald though...

  3. I totally agree with you. ^_^ Me neither, I'm not a fan of Britney before but Britney's story is really inspiring. And now, I really admire her, bad to good ^_^. Now I find her a stronger more responsible person and I really like the change in her ^_^.

    Tnx so much girl for droppin' by my blog, appreciate it a lot ^_^

  4. Hehe I'm admittedly a Britney fan^^

    Thanks for your lovely comment on my post :D The cream definitely has buildable coverage

  5. I've never been a huge fan of Britney but I don't hate her. I am a fan of her music and I thought her Blackout album was really good. And she use to have killer abs. Glad she's making a successful comeback!

  6. not a britney fan, but I do think she's a brave girl, for coming back at all! other stars would probably be hiding out on an island somewhere in the ocean!
