Does This Look Like Britney Spears To You? Lifetime Desperately Hopes You Say Yes.
It’s Britney, bitch. Actually, it’s not. It’s really, really not.
But The Lifetime Channel desperately hopes you won’t hold that against them.
In the grand tradition of Whitney and The Anna Nicole Story, Lifetime has done it again by producing an upcoming Britney Spears biopic, starring Natasha Bassett as the “Toxic” star.

According to press materials, the two-hour biopic will be upon us sometime next year, depicting Britney’s “rise to fame, fall from grace and eventual triumphant resurrection, firmly securing her position as one of the world’s greatest entertainers.”
Our question: will they be re-enacting Spears’ classic performance of “Gimme More” from the 2007 VMAs?
Let’s revisit, for old time’s sake.
