Britney Spears was never on board with Lifetime’s forthcoming biopic of her life, and now that the network has released the first promo images, we can see why. Britney does not deserve this, fans of Britney do not deserve this. This is a goddamn travesty.
First of all, the actress playing Britney is done up to look more like a ratchet Taylor Swift than our favorite pop princess. Britney would not be wearing a fur coat over her crop top. These days she rarely wears pants. Just no. No. Britney would not wear that outfit.
But wait, there’s more.
Somehow the actor they tapped for K-Fed looks even douchier than the real life Kevin Federline.
And don’t even get me started on the dudes they got to play NSYNC.
Just no. Britney deserves better.
All of that said, will I still watch it? Probably.
