You could buy Britney Spears’ childhood home, would you live in it?
If you wanted to live like Britney Spears when you were growing up, this is your chance to make your childhood dream come true. Spears’ modest childhood home in Kentwood, Louisiana has been put up for sale for a not-so-modest price of $1.2 million. But hey, this is American pop royalty we’re talking about — the historical significance alone makes this house unique. Purchasing this home means you’ll get much more than just a three-bedroom, three-bathroom place to live. Besides fulfilling the superfan’s ultimate dream of living in a place where a celebrity spent her formative years, you’ll also get some memorabilia from the star.
This is not the first time this home has been on the market. It was first sold by Spears’ estranged father, Jamie, in 2021 for just $275,000. After only two years, the new owners appear to have a better idea of the cultural significance of the property. According to the Keller Williams Realty listing, the home comes with original home furnishings, “preserving the essence of the famous singer’s early years.” Looking through the photos, it’s clear that the house is very old, and appears to be perfectly preserved from when Spears lived in it after moving out of Mississippi as a child. There’s even a mirror in one of the bedrooms that says “Britney Spears” in double-curled letters on oval pieces of wood.
Besides the celebrity aura associated with the space, the only really cool thing about the property is Spears’ childhood dance studio. The simple structure consists of exposed wooden walls covered in mirrors and a basic drop ceiling (with some tiles apparently missing). Considering the pop star’s current real estate portfolio, it’s a stark contrast to the foyer where she now performs her social media videos.
The ranch-style home sits on 1.87 acres and is 2,300 square feet, making it the perfect location for a future Britney Spears museum or a fan’s dream Airbnb. Are we a little paranoid that along with the old furniture will come some negative energy from Spears’ problematic father and their fraught relationship? certainly. But if you’re excited about owning a piece of music history like this, the potential bad feelings — and its $1.2 million price tag — might be worth it.
