See the Birthday of Britney Spears & Other 1980s Star Babies

The 1980s was a glorious decade to say the least. This decade initiated great cultural and technological advances which still are shaping the world in which we live today. Companies launched in this decade include CNN, MTV, USA Today, and technology unleashed in this decade were the video recorder, personal computer, compact discs, satellite dishes and the grandaddy of video games today - Pac-Man.

Meanwhile, in the rest of the country, babies were nursing, beggining to crawl, walk or talk. These were no ordinary babies - but Star Babies. Of course at the time they were oblivious to their potential and the influence that they would later have on the lives of all of us. What made these Star Babies different from all the other children who share the same birthdates? Was it destiny, luck, hard work or a combination of all of these? You decide - meanwhile here are the birthdays of the top young stars of the early 1980s.
