Britney Spears Cast as Virgin Mary
Cross yourselves. Britney Spears is set to play the Virgin Mary.
Silly me to think the pop starlet couldn’t fit anymore bizarre headlines under her name! According to Music-News.com, French producer Phillippe Rebboah has approached the singer to portray the mother of Christ in a satirical film of the Nativity story called Sweet Baby Jesus.
Rebboah told Us Weekly magazine, “I had to convince my partners, because they were like, ‘Oh, no. Britney?’ But I thought it was brilliant.” Why, exactly, I haven’t quite figured out yet.
The modern retelling of the Christian story depicts Mary as a pregnant 19-year-old unsure of her baby's paternity, says Music-News, and goes into labor on Christmas Eve in Bethlehem, Maryland, amid rumors the birth is the second coming of Jesus Christ. I suppose baby Jesus will also be involved in the custody battle between Spears and K-Fed?
