Britney Spears’ name might be etched into our collective memory as the Princess of Pop that ruled the late 90s and early 2000s with hits like Baby One More Time, Oops!… I Did it Again, and Toxic.
But due to her decade-long struggles with an overbearing conservatorship and shameless tabloid bullying, the iconic singer’s legacy has grown into a telling tale on the pitfalls of stardom.
The Hulu documentary, Framing Britney Spears, followed by Netflix’s 2021 Britney vs Spears brought the pop star’s life and conservatorship back into the spotlight, shedding light the unfair way in which both the media and the public have treated her during her struggles.
One thing’s for sure: the documentaries and their depiction of the media’s mistreatment of the pop icon have also been a well-deserved slap on the wrist to tabloid junkies everywhere for enabling the gossip media industry to tear down celebrities and revel in their humiliation.
Now, with her years of oppression under her father’s strict control behind her, Britney Spears’ conservatorship has finally come to end — allowing the pop star to enjoy her well-deserved freedom.
And she’s making the most of it: Spears is now expecting her first baby with fiancé Sam Aghari, and the two have plans to tie the knot as soon as the baby comes.
The pop icon’s legendary career – and the fortune she amassed along the way
Britney has sold over 100 million records worldwide, including over 70 million solely in the United States, making her one of the world’s best-selling music artists — which rightfully earned her the title of Princess of Pop.
And while her crown has often been challenged by contenders like Katy Perry, Lady Gaga or Ariana Grande, if there’s one thing we can agree on, it’s that Britney is as resilient as they come.
Despite the many ups and downs in her personal life and being the center of the media circus ever so often, she continues to be a timeless icon.
In fact, the singer/actress/entertainer now has a net worth estimated at $70 million, with the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) listing Spears as the eighth top-selling female artist in the United States.
So then, it comes as no surprise that Britney has invested some of her hard-earned money into prime real estate — including a jaw-dropping mansion that she now calls home.
Britney Spears’ house in California, a palatial mansion that sits on 21 acres of land
In case you’re wondering where Britney Speaks lives now, we thought we’d bring you up to speed.
Britney Spears lives in a Neoclassical Italianate-style mansion in the celebrity-heavy community of Thousand Oaks, which she bought back in 2015.
The singer paid a whopping $7.4 million for the home, which proudly sits in a prime area of Thousand Oaks.
Located in between Los Angeles and Santa Barbara in Ventura County, Thousand Oaks is nestled against the Santa Monica Mountains, and is recognized as one of the most desirable places to live, work, relax, and raise a family in all of California.
Reminiscent of a beautiful Italian villa, the 13,264-square-foot home sits on 21 sprawling acres of private land and is hidden away by two private gates.
Needless to say, the pop star takes her privacy and security very seriously. But the lucky few that do walk through the gates will feel like they’ve been transported to beautiful Italy. Bellissimo!
The estate has beautiful manicured lawns, a rear motor court with access to a six-car garage, flower gardens, an infinity pool, a stand-alone spa and an orchard.
There’s also a lighted tennis court and a three-hole golf course on the estate’s grounds, giving the pop star tons of options for spending quality time outside.
A castle for a pop princess: Inside Britney’s house
If the exterior of the house seems grand, just wait until you see what’s inside.
The entrance has a marbled floor, massive pillars, and floor-to-ceiling windows that let in plenty of natural light.
Talking about ceilings — Britney’s house has 35-feet high ceilings that give the whole place a palatial feel. There’s also a large black marble fireplace where the star can cozy up with boyfriend Sam Asghari.
A grand staircase leads to the second floor where there are five bedrooms and eight bathrooms. The master bedroom has an enviable closet perfect for a world-famous pop star.
What’s a celebrity home without a killer view, you ask?
Well, the views of the LA skyline and Santa Monica mountains from Britney’s home are spectacular, to say the least. Even the wood-paneled library overlooks the mountains making it the perfect reading nook.
Neither Britney nor Sam shy away from showing their affection for one another.
They often surprise each other with delicious home-cooked meals so it’s perfect that they have a massive open kitchen with moody dark wooden cabinets and a large center island.
The house also a wine cellar that can accommodate 3,500 bottles, so bring on the romance!
The couple also spends a lot of time in their media and game room. We can only imagine how handy those rooms were during the quarantine.
The couple loves to enjoy the Californian sun in the luxurious infinity pool.
In fact, they have a 1,200-square-foot poolside pavilion with its own full kitchen, 3,500-bottle wine cellar, and bath, so no one has to leave the pool party.
The grounds even have a tennis court, a separate spa, and a three-green golf course with sand traps.
