S1E5: Smells Like Teen Spirit | Britney Spears & Drew Barrymore


This week, we look at two women who got famous – and then got married – way too young. Britney Spears was a pop juggernaut before she was 18 years old. Within a few years, she was desperately lashing out in pursuit of a life she could call her own. Drew Barrymore was born to Hollywood royalty, but was forced to take on life on her own very young. Both found their way into ill-advised marriages that ended with great fanfare.
