'Dude I'm not dead!': Britney Spears slams the idea of her biopic after Millie Bobby Brown interest
Britney Spears addressed the issue on her Instagram writing, 'I hear about people wanting to do movies about my life... dude I'm not dead!!!'
LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA: Britney Spears opposed the idea of creating a biopic about her life after actress Millie Bobby Brown stated her intention to play the role in a movie. The 'Drew Barrymore Show' episode airing on Monday, November 7 included Brown talking about wanting to play a troubled pop icon in a biopic.
Spears, 40, addressed the issue on her Instagram writing, "I hear about people wanting to do movies about my life... dude I'm not dead!!!" During the in-car conversation between Drew Barrymore and Brown, Drew posed the question, "What would you like to do next?" and added that it may be after 'Stranger Things' finishes up or perhaps years from now. "I want to play a real person," Brown replied, mentioning Britney Spears as the subject of her desire.
Brown said, "I think her story, first of all, resonates with me." She said that the two had gone through the same process of "growing up in public," and claimed that she had noticed similar emotions when she had viewed the pop icon's earlier interviews.
Brown said, "I mean, same thing with you," equating Barrymore's work as a desirable child actress in films like 'ET' and 'Firestarter' to her and Spears' early experiences. She continued, "I see the scramble for words, and I don't know her, but, when I look at pictures of her, I feel like I could tell her story in the right way. And hers only."
Britney had uploaded a lengthy post that contained a critique of the biography as well as an explanation of her family's issues. She wrote, "Good news, good news !!! Still breathing... it’s funny the same two people who gave me life are the same exact 2 people who took it away... but guess what !!! I’m alive and I’m breathing again !!!"
"I hear about people wanting to do movies about my life … dude I’m not dead !!! Although it’s pretty fucking clear they preferred me dead 🙄🙄🙄... I guess my family is going to lock their doors now 🤔🤔🤔🙄🙄🙄🤧🤧🤧 !!!... I did kinda post too much this week... I'm embarrassed !!! I get it... oh well !!! Have a good day ☀️ !!!" Spears wrote.
