Rozanda “Chilli” Thomas, Lisa “Left Eye” Lopes and Tionee “T-Boz” Watkins were all living in Atlanta, Ga., supporting themselves through such jobs as fast-food server and hair-stylist before their big break into super-stardom. The girls were “discovered” by singer/producer Perri “Pebbles” Reid and R&B artist Dallas Austin, who immediately signed the girls on to a management contract. Pebbitone, which was Reid’s production company, linked the girls to LaFace Records, where they signed a recording contract. Austin and Pebbles took it upon themselves to create the public persona for the then-twenty-year-old women, even though they may not have the girls’ best interests in mind.

More than any other single artist, Britney Spears was the driving force behind the return of teen pop in the late ’90s. The blockbuster success of the Spice Girls and Backstreet Boys certainly paved the way for her own commercial breakthrough, but Spears didn’t just become a star — she was a bona fide pop phenomenon. Not only did she sell millions of records, she was a media fixture regardless of what she was (or wasn’t) doing; among female singers of the era (many of whom followed in her footsteps), her celebrity star power was rivaled only by Jennifer Lopez. From the outset, Spears’ sex appeal was an important part of her image. The video for her debut single, “…Baby One More Time,” outfitted her in full Catholic-school regalia and sent her well on the way to becoming an international sex symbol. Yet Spears’ handlers seemed to be trying to have it both ways — there was a definite tension between the wholesome innocence Spears tried to project for her female audience, and the titillating sexuality that enticed so many male fans. Those marketing tactics made Spears a somewhat controversial figure, the subject of endless debates concerning appropriate role models for teenage girls.

Kid Rock was brought into this world as Robert James Ritchie on January 17, 1971. Bob came from a big family and as the third of four children, there was no doubt he would become the family’s performer. His parents were known for throwing parties and hayrides and usually around midnight, Kid Rock would be stirred from his sleep to come and entertain the party. There would be no hesitation…he loved to hog the attention, even though he was only around six years old at the time! Growing up in Romeo, Michigan, Kid Rock had to generate his own fun, which often led him into trouble. Although Kid played his share of childhood pranks and was punished accordingly, he came from a strict Catholic household where high standards were to be kept. He was to go to church every Sunday and his chores included feeding horses, cleaning their dung and rising early in the morning to bring the horses their water.
From live performances in front of his parents’ wasted friends, Kid graduated to break dancing when it became popular in the mid-eighties. Kid was actually an excellent dancer. His first musical loves, Jim Croce and Bob Seger were soon put on the back burner, while Rap Music took the front seat.
In 1990, Kid signed his first contract with Jive Records and then was asked to perform as the opening act on the 40 city national tour of Ice-Cube and Too Short. For the first time, Kid was gaining national recognition and went on to sign with a smaller label,ContinuumRecords. Kid was allowed almost complete leeway in the recording of The Polyfuze Method: (1993), which is when he began writing about the events of his daily life. Today, his fans have become accustomed to his honesty and expect nothing less than this from Kid Rock; he did not disappoint them on Devil Without a Cause.
