Britney Spears opens up about insecurities while filming her movie Crossroads: ‘I was so nervous to be on camera’



Britney Spears has opened up about the insecurities she faced when filming her movie Crossroads back in 2002.

The 38-year-old singer got candid as she posted a new Instagram photo, where she looked relaxed in her garden while soaking up some rays. Spears credited the sunlight for lifting her spirits, but said growing up she had to avoid it because acne medication prescribed by her dermatologist meant her skin was sensitive to the elements. 

“When I was younger I never really had an acne problem until I did my first movie,” she   revealed, referring to her 2002 film Crossroads. “I was so nervous to be on camera so I went to the dermatologist for stronger skincare products !!! It cleared up quickly after but you have to be careful because prescribed products are very strong !!!! I remember waking up and saying wow it’s gone.”

That’s why Spears said she now loves to spend most of her free time outdoors, to make up for the periods where she was forced to stay indoors. 

“Now I stay outside a lot and I give the sun credit for lifting my spirits and giving me a natural glow !!!!!” she said. “It was so hot yesterday but look what I found …. my mini rose garden hidden in the back !!!! I put them in my hair and I thought they were exquisite.”

From watching her in Crossroads, you wouldn’t think Spears was insecure about her skin. The singer starred in the coming-of-age film opposite Zoe Saldana and Taryn Manning, playing best friends who embark on a cross-country road trip to find Spears’ long-lost, on-screen mother (played by Kim Cattrall).

While Spears has not starred in another film since, she has made cameos on TV shows such as How I Met Your Mother, Glee and Jane the Virgin

Recently, Spears’ Crossroads co-star Manning made headlines after the actress showed her support for the #FreeBritney movement — a protest by fans who want to see Spears freed of her conservatorship. The singer has been under the watch of her father, Jamie, since 2008, when she suffered a public meltdown. As conservator, Jamie controls all of Spears finances and assets. Like many, Manning said it was time that the star was given back control of her own life.

“Such a wonderful time with this crew,” Manning reminisced as she posted a throwback photo of them on set. “Britney I know you’re strong af [sic] and have your own brain and thought process. To me you look happy and like you’re having a blast! Keep up the happy posts and your faith in Jesus Christ.

“How about let’s give this wonderful woman the dignity she deserves and earned.”

Meghan Markle Drops Royal Title: I’m Not a Duchess Anymore!




Think of this as the royal equivalent of “you can’t fire me, I quit!”

When Meghan Markle and Prince Harry first stepped down from their roles as senior members of the royal family, there was much debate over whether the couple should be stripped of their royal titles.

But now, it looks as though the former Duke and Duchess of Sussex have decided to put a stop to the controversy by dropping the titles on their own!

Time Magazine’s list of the 100 most influential people of 2020 will be revealed during an hour-long ABC special next week.

The fact that the list is being unveiled in prime time on network TV probably has more to do with the quarantine content drought than any real public interest in the names on the list, but we digress.

Meg and Harry

The reason we mention this is that the promos for the special refer to Harry and Meghan simply as “Harry and Meghan.”

Now, that might not seem like a very big deal, but you have to understand how seriously the Brits take their royal titles.

Prior to this week, it would have been considered a major sign of disrespect to refer to the Duke and Duchess of Sussex as anything other than the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.

A Royal Family Photo

Going public as simply “Harry and Meghan” represents a major step toward independence for the couple.

And it could have something to do with their latest rift involving the royal family.

Meghan and Harry signed $100 million deal with Netflix recently, and while the nature of the collaboration remains unknown, it’s already got the royals up in arms.

At a Parade

The reason is that the Netflix is home to the acclaimed scripted series The Crown, which takes an in-depth look at the life and reign of Queen Elizabeth II.

The show provides a warts-and-all portrayal of the royal family, delving into such uncomfortable topics as the marital infidelities of the Queen’s husband, Prince Philip, and the Nazi sympathies of her uncle, King Edward VIII.

Conversation about the series is said to be forbidden in Buckingham Palace, and no member of the family has remarked on it publicly.

Olivia Colman as The Queen

Insiders say Prince William in particular is livid about Harry’s latest business deal, and sources claim the brothers are no longer on speaking terms. 

Is it mere coincidence that Harry and Meghan decided to ditch one of their last clear ties to the royals just as their long-simmering feud began to bubble over again?

Perhaps, but it’s not hard to see why so many have jumped to the conclusion that the two developments are connected.

Baby Sussex

Of course, it’s possible that this is just a temporary arrangement.

Maybe Harry and Meghan decided to go for a more casual tone for the ABC appearance, and they’ll be back to using their formal titles in no time.

But it’s equally possible that this was a deliberate and permanent move intended to send a clear message to Harry’s family that they’re no longer in control of the former Duke and Duchess.

Stream Napalm Death’s Killer New Album Throes Of Joy In The Jaws Of Defeatism




British extreme-metal veterans Napalm Death are a true rarity: A band that remains vital and beloved, even though they’re decades past their most famous era and even though none of the people currently in the band are original members. Napalm Death were grindcore pioneers back in the ’80s, and they persist as brutalist elder statesmen who keep finding new ways to explore feelings of rage and violence and existential dread.

Today, Napalm Death follow their 2015 album Apex Predator – Easy Meat with a new album called Throes Of Joy In The Jaws Of Defeatism. It kicks ass. The new LP’s early singles — “Logic Ravaged By Brute Force,” “Amoral,” the cover of Sonic Youth’s “White Kross” — suggested that this album was going to steer straight into the sounds of postpunk, goth, and industrial. That’s not really where the album goes. Instead, Napalm Death have come out with a wide-ranging and ambitious album that still pulverizes.

Over 15 tracks and 51 minutes Throes Of Joy In The Jaws Of Defeatism covers a lot of territory — fast brain-scrambler grime, cavernous death-metal thunder, post-apocalyptic Killing Joke bonfire-chants, epic crust-punk roars. Somehow, all of it holds together, cohering as a kind of echoing end-times rumble. If you like the sounds of that, then this album might be something that you need in your life. Stream it below.

Throes Of Joy In The Jaws Of Defeatism is out now on Century Media.
