Britney Spears to play… Britney Spears in biopic?

2008 MTV Video Music Awards - Press Room

Britney Spears didn’t get the best reviews for her acting when she filmed Crossroads, but will she fare better if she stars as herself?

According to the Daily Mail, the singer is currently in discussions to play herself in a biopic revealing her up-and-down life in the music business. It won’t pull any punches or dance delicately around issues – it will cover all the hard times including Britney’s crazed head-shaving incident, her custody battle for her kids, her hospitalization, and her short-term paparazzi romance.


It will also show the happy moments as well, so it’s not going to be all doom and gloom.

I find it a bit weird to have her starring in it herself. I’m not a therapist but I would have thought it might be… I don’t know, upsetting in some way, to have to relive all those dark times by playing them out in front of a camera over and over again. Then again, who knows? Maybe it will be cathartic for her. And I guess that if she plays herself she doesn’t have to worry about someone else getting it all wrong.

I’ll have to reserve my judgment until I see it for myself and see if she really does star in her own role.

What do you think of the idea of Britney Spears playing herself in a revealing biopic?
