Britney Spears Upset About Unofficial Lifetime Biopic

Pop princess Britney Spears voiced her disapproval over Lifetime Television’s decision to create an unofficial biopic about her life and career. The crooner’s middle finger at the project, set to begin production in September, leaves many unanswered questions about the film.

Hail Caesar!‘s Natasha Bassett has been tapped to appear as Britney on-screen. Bassett was recently snapped while undergoing some cosmetic changes to prepare for the project. An image that was posted to the starlet’s unofficial Instagram account shows the actress getting her hair dyed blonde.

“Martian on the loose!” the caption read.

Spears’s representative spoke briefly with Entertainment Weekly about the made-for-television movie.

“This production is not endorsed by Britney,” the representative stated. “The film does not have the approval of my client. She will not participate in the movie’s production in any way, shape, or form.”

The statement could be a potential concern for the producers of the biopic, as there are copyright issues that must be addressed. If Britney’s approval is needed to feature her iconic songs in the film, the movie may lack some of its most important elements.

Lifetime’s movie production of Britney’s life is said to be centered around her childhood, rise to fame and her eventual emotional collapse under the pressure of celebrity status. It is believed that the movie will also focus heavily on her two marriages, the birth of sons Jayden and Sean, and her remarkable comeback.

This would not be the first time the Lifetime Television Network had difficulties in obtaining copyright permissions for a biopic feature. The company had similar difficulties when it produced an unauthorized biopic about late hip-hop singer Aaliyah Haughton.

Unofficial Britney Spears Biopic Not Endorsed by Singer

Procuers at the Lifetime Television Network may encounter issues with the creation of their upcoming project, a Britney Spears biopic, starring Natasha Bassett as the Princess of Pop.

Entertainment Weekly discovered that Spears did not grant approval for the project and will not be involved in its production.

“This unauthorized biopic is not endorsed by Britney Spears,” her representative told EW. “Permission was never sought for the production and therefore Miss Spears will not participate in its production in any way, shape, or form.”

Lifetime did not appear to be phased, as evidenced by a photograph Bassett posted to Instagram.

“I’m here getting my hair dyed,” she wrote. “I’m half-blonde right now! Martian alert!”

Could a Britney biopic be memorable without featuring the Britney tunes that we all loved or hated through the years?

The movie is said to concentrate heavily on Spears’s rise to fame, beginning with her early childhood in Louisiana, growing up Disney, and her ultimate rise to pop stardom. The film is rumored to feature moments from her broken romantic relationships and failed marriages, motherhood, and her sudden breakdown, as well as her road to recovery.

Britney rose to fame in the late 1990s with release of her hit song, “Baby… One More Time.” She followed up with hit after hit, such as “Lucky,” “Crazy,” and “Toxic.” She is currently in her third year of a Las Vegas residency and recorded her ninth studio album in 2016.

Britney’s Back With a Brand-New Album

After years of ups, downs, mental health issues, disastrous performances and a legal conservatorship, Britney Spears is back with a new pitch-perfect pop album. “Glory,” her first release since 2013’s disappointing “Britney Jean,” drops on August 26. Packed with 12 songs — 17 on the deluxe version — “Glory” is a return to form for Britney, with its hook-filled electronic beats and catchy lyrics mixed with Britney’s distinct, trademark voice.

As her ninth studio album, it’s an impressive achievement for a pop star. At 35, Britney’s been on the scene for nearly 20 years now, defying every scathing review and expectation.

To promote “Glory,” Britney did an episode of “Carpool Karaoke” with James Cordon and will also perform at MTV’s Video Music Awards. This performance will be almost ten years since her disastrous turn on the stage in 2007, when she wandered aimlessly and seemed to forget her own lyrics. She’s come a long way, seeming at ease and in a good mood on “Carpool Karaoke.”

In other Britney news, Lifetime has announced that it’s creating a two-hour biopic about her life. The movie will star Natasha Bassett as the blonde bombshell. According to reports, it will detail her rise from Louisiana schoolgirl to the biggest pop star in the world. It will cover her tumultuous relationship with fellow singer Justin Timberlake, as well as her personal mental health struggles and marriages to Kevin Federline and Jason Alexander. Production will begin in September for a planned 2017 release.
