Yep. You heard right.
Days ahead of Britney Spears‘ latest record release, Lifetime just gave the green light to a TV movie biopic focused on the singer, The Hollywood Reporter reports. Which means, another weirdly watered down life story? Or something amazing? You be the judge:
Natasha Bassett (Hail, Caesar!) will star as Spears in Britney, which will detail what Lifetime described as the “tumultuous true story” of her rise to fame, fall from grace and triumphant resurrection.
The two-hour movie will follow Spears’ early career as a young girl from Louisiana and her relationship and breakup with Justin Timberlake as well as her personal struggles following her parents’ divorce. Also set to be examined are her marriages to Jason Alexander, Kevin Federline and her downfall that saw her lose custody of her sons before she rebuilt her career and proved herself to be a force in entertainment.
Britney will be produced by Asylum Entertainment (The Kennedys, Ring of Fire). Anne-Marie Hess will pen the script with Leslie Libman (Manson’s Lost Girls) directing. Exec producers include Steve Michaels, Jonathan Koch and Joan Harrison. Production is set to begin Sept. 19 in Vancouver for a 2017 premiere.
Brit Brit releases her 9th studio album Glory on Friday and is set to perform on the MTV VMAs on Sunday, not to mention she’s still doing that residency. Britney’s busy, people! Why she needs a biopic? I don’t know. More money?
Who do YOU think should play Britney Spears in a biopic about the pop star?

DMX went full Duggar, y’all.
Now, I generally think DMX is pretty funny, like a fun kitschy side note to my college music years. And it’s good to know the next generation of his brood will go forth and populate the world with more dance party hits. Right? That’s totally how it works. Anyhow, there are a lot of little DMXs running around, because the dude just welcomed his 15th child into the world. BTW, DMX is 45 years old.
DMX has a challenge most parents would find daunting … remembering the names of all of his kids, which now number 15. The baker’s dozen plus 2 was born Friday in NYC … weighing in at 6 lbs, 10 oz.
His name — Exodus Simmons. The mom is X’s longtime GF, Desiree. It’s her first child.
The rapper missed the delivery — he was in Arizona when Exodus popped out. But he flew to NYC for the baby’s first night in the world. X tells us he’s overjoyed, calling the baby a “blessing.” Lots of blessings.
At some point, you kinda wanna consider a vasectomy, right? But that being said… this is his girlfriend’s first child. She wanted a baby and she got one. Eh?
What do you think about DMX’s 15 kids? Woof.

Adele is in LA for eight sold-out shows this month, but she also has another fun job to do while she’s in America. The girl’s been busy getting her new $9.5 million Beverly Hills mansion to the point that it’s “her new home base,” a source reveals in the new issue of Us Weekly. Sorry, London! WE GOT HER!
While in town for eight sold-out shows this month, the London native, 28, was spotted playing in her yard with 3-year-old son (with partner Simon Konecki), Angelo, and also taking her boy for several walks around their new community. (Nicole Richie and Joel Madden live nearby!)
“She’s always incognito in a hat and glasses,” a neighbor says of the Grammy winner, who is touring the U.S. in support of her multiplatinum album 25 until early November. “But she’s very friendly!”
The “Someone Like You” singer even playfully teased a local while grocery shopping at Santa Monica’s Bristol Farms August 9. “A customer approached her and asked, ‘Are you Adele?’” recalls an onlooker. “And in her clear British accent, she said, ‘No!’”

I love it. Hopefully, it means more Adele concerts in my city…and maybe, yours (provided you live in the US).

Kendall Jenner ain’t perfect. In fact, she has a very odd fear…trypophobia.
It’s okay, I had to look it up, too. The model revealed via a blog post on Monday that she suffers from the fear of irregular patterns or clusters of small holes or bumps, known as “trypophobia,” according to the Association for Psychological Science.
“Anyone who knows me knows that I have really bad trypophobia,” the model, 20, shared. “Trypophobics are afraid of tiny little holes that are in weird patterns. Things that could set me off are pancakes, honeycomb or lotus heads (the worst!). It sounds ridiculous but so many people actually have it! I can’t even look at little holes — it gives me the worst anxiety. Who knows what’s in there???”
Vogue’s September 2016 cover girl ALSO suffers panic attacks.
“[I’m going to London] for the day because Kendall had a really awful night last night flying to Paris because she gets really bad panic attacks and anxiety,” the momager told Kim Kardashian during a recent season 12 episode. “I don’t know what to do.”

Yikes, Kenny. Maybe you want to explore your fears with a trained professional? I’m sure you can afford one…
