American cable channel Lifetime has released a trailer for an unauthorized Britney Spears biopic. Head-shaving scene included.
The film, starring Natasha Bassett in the role of Spears, documents the Louisiana pop star’s highs and lows.
Titled “Britney Ever After,” the trailer includes footage of Basset hitting “rock bottom”, which was Britney’s iconic public meltdown in 2007. If you recall, she ended up shaving her head and also hit back at the paparazzi with an umbrella.
But Lifetime tries to show more sides to the once-troubled singer through the biopic. The trailer also includes sequences of her performing and dancing with her husband at their wedding.
While Basset looks like a pretty convincing Britney, we’re not sure she shares the same moves or the stage presence. We also can’t help but wonder why so many of the stage scenes include fast cuts and dim lighting – perhaps Basset’s performance was not on par with the original? Whatever it is, we’re pretty sure there’s a reason why the biopic never got the go-ahead from Britney’s camp.
