Britney Spears feminist musical with fairy tale plot to debut this fall

A musical featuring the songs of Britney Spears is set to premiere in Chicago later this year.

The show, titled Once Upon A One More Time, will include Britney’s best bangers.

If you’re expecting a musical on Spears’s life, however, you need to think again.

The show will, in fact, use her songs to fit an original plot. Said plot will offer a feminist take on some of the most classic fairy tales, such as Cinderella and Snow White.

Discovering The Feminine Mystique

According to The Hollywood Reporter, it will focus on a group of princesses starting a royal book club and challenging the idea of femininity thanks to a fairy godmother.

The synopsis reads: ‘Once Upon a Time … Cinderella, Snow White, and the other fairytale princesses gather for their book club, when — oh, baby, baby! — a rogue fairy godmother drops The Feminine Mystique into their corseted laps, spurring a royal revelation.’

The Feminine Mystique is the book by Betty Friedan which is said to have sparked the second-wave feminism. How will Work Bitch be interlaced into all of that?

When will it premiere?

The musical is scheduled to have its pre-Broadway debut this fall at the James M. Nederlander Theatre.

Performances will begin on 29 October before the official opening on 13 November. The show will then run until 1 December, one day before Spears’s 38th birthday.

The princess of pop herself gave the show her blessing after she caught a workshop performance of Once Upon A One More Time last year in New York.

‘I’m so excited to have a musical with my songs — especially one that takes place in such a magical world filled with characters that I grew up on, who I love and adore,’ Britney said in a statement.

‘This is a dream come true for me!’

The show will be directed by Rock of Ages Kristin Hangii and features a book by Jon Hartmere. Moreover, YouTube stars and married couple Keone and Mari Madrid will choreograph.

Casting and the rest of the creative team will be announced soon.

News of the musical came months after Britney canceled her Vegas residency due to her father’s ailing health.

Chris Crocker sets the record straight on why he loves open relationships

Chris Crocker

Chris Crocker (best known for his viral ‘Leave Britney alone’ video) is setting the record straight about why he loves being in an open relationship.

The gay porn star took to Twitter today (8 February) to share his thoughts on why monogamy’s just not for him.

He repeatedly wrote out the phrases: ‘MY MAN DOES NOT CHEAT ON ME. I DO NOT CHEAT ON HIM. WE ARE “OPEN”’

Fellow porn star Josh Moore then tweeted: ‘Monogamy was created by the straights as a means to control women. It ain’t for us gays honey.’

‘Period,’ Crocker replied. ‘I love being in love with someone who WANTS me to experience all the cock and ass I want and likewise.’

He then later tweeted: ‘People think “settling down” means you’re no longer a hoe. I have one tongue to taste with and one life to live. Whoever I live it with will have FULL permission to hoe as well. And a ring on my finger won’t stop me from tasting the rainbow, bitch. #OpenRelationships’

Crocker is currently dating singer John Duff.

Chris Crocker: ‘Leave Britney alone!’

Chris Crocker first made headlines with his ‘Leave Britney alone’ video in 2007. Then in 2016, he made headlines again when the world ‘discovered’ he ‘got hot’.

He responded by posting a heartfelt video.

Crocker said: ‘I know a lot of people are going to say “just take a compliment”. Who doesn’t like compliments, right? But what I wanted to say is, we should always feel attractive – not just when society tells us we we are.

‘As long as you’re happy with the way you look, and as long as you’re expressing your true self, that’s what’s most attractive. And to be honest, I don’t know that I am being my full self. I am being my full self as much as I can in the moment, where I can’t really do anything about transitioning,’ Crocker added.

‘To everyone out there who might feel different, don’t wait for society to clap for you, or tell you, or affirm you – affirm yourself. Then your confidence will be firm,’ he said.

Crocker makes regular videos and posts them to social media.

He said in a recent video: ‘When y’all start commenting shit – talking about how I have a new man in every picture and I’m a whore, my pussy is minding its own fucking business.

‘My pussy is booked, my pussy is a working woman.

‘So when you see me with all of these men, maybe you need to mind your own retired ass puss and get some,’ he said.
