THE BIG (AND SEXY!) DEBUT

Oh baby, ba-bay! With her signature girlish growl, Britney Spears bursts onto the music scene with the release of her first single, "…Baby One More Time." The song's music video, which shows the 16-year-old sporting a schoolgirl uniform that bares her midriff, stirs controversy. But Spears downplays her sex appeal, saying, "The outfits looked kind of dorky, so I was like, 'Let's tie up our shirts and be cute.'" The following March, she announces her first national tour.
