Outojen uutisten suma vaan jatkuu. Pari päivää sitten uutisoitiin, että Britneyn lauluja käytetään merirosvojen karkottamiseen. Nyt biisit pääsevät lavalle gospelmusikaalissa, jossa Jeesuksen elämästä kerrotaan Britneyn musiikin avulla. Erikoista, etten sanoisi. It’s Jesusney, bitch…
A new musical that depicts the story of Jesus Christ using only Britney Spears songs is in the works.
SPEARS the Musical: The Gospel According to Britney will feature several of Spears’s songs, including ‘(You Drive Me) Crazy’, ‘…Baby One More Time’ and ‘Stronger’, used to describe the birth, life, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ.
No lyrics have been changed and no words are spoken, technically making the show an opera.
The musical’s official website shares some images from previous shows, with the creative team sharing input on the production.
Creator Pat Blute says of the musical: “These are Britney’s lyrics. These are Jesus Christ’s images. The Britney Spears you see is not Britney Spears. Remember that. The Jesus Christ you read is not Jesus Christ. These are manifestations. Accounts through the media, through the words of followers, of friends, of foes, of villains, of heroes, of liars, of biases.
“It’s a falsehood that people believe fame and fortune create happiness. That all ‘deaths’ receive a resurrection. I hope this project will show you otherwise through the power of listening and the power of forgiveness.”
Elsewhere, Spears is currently preparing for the release of her eighth studio album Britney Jean.
New single ‘Perfume’ will be released on November 5, while in the UK lead single ‘Work Bitch’ will be released on November 3.
Britney Jean will be released on December 2 in the UK and December 3 in the US.
