Britney Spears Is Getting Her Own Lifetime Movie And The Trailer Is Equal Parts Sexy And Insane, Just Like Britney
Unless you’re a woman between the age of 28-35 you might be shocked to learn that Britney Spears is 1) still alive and 2) performs regularly in Las Vegas. She fell out of the limelight years ago after having a mental breakdown and being temporarily institutionalized for psychiatric issues.
If we were a more considerate society we would’ve let the once ‘Queen of Pop’ live out her days as a mother without drudging up the old skeletons in her closet, but unfortunately for Britney we’re assholes.

So it’s not at all surprising that the Lifetime network is packing up Britney Spears’ mental baggage and putting it on display for the world to see in a made-for-TV movie. They’ll get insane ratings on this project, and it’ll make that ‘behind the scenes‘ Saved By The Bell film look like child’s play.
