Britney Spears Announces One-Off Documentary
'I Am Britney Jean' to air next week in the US...
Britney Spears today announced a one-off documentary special set to air next week.
I Am Britney Jean will focus on the Perfume singer’s upcoming Las Vegas residency, which is set to kick off just after Christmas.
In a trailer for the two-hour long doc, Britney can be seen describing the strain of preparing for her Vegas show: “I couldn’t do rehearsal the next day. I just knew I almost broke my neck or something,” she explains at one point. “There was serious damage!” she says between clips of her dancing and being thrown in the air.
As the show date gets closer, the tension mounts, and members of the singer’s cast and crew can be heard expressing their concerns in the clip. “This is the biggest stage,” one says. Another adds: “There’s a lot more people watching, that creates a lot more pressure for her.”
However Britney can’t wait for her fans to see the TV special and earlier today she tweeted: “Excited to share this little piece of me with u :)” along with a link to the trailer.
And while she’s undoubtedly happy with both the documentary and the upcoming live shows, Brit Brit admits in the trailer that she still suffers from pre-show nerves. “I’m really nervous,” she laughs to the camera. “What if I just blank out and just stand there?”
I Am Britney Jean airs on E! on 22 December 2013 in the US. The UK airdate has not yet been confirmed.
