Forget ‘X Factor': Britney Spears Wants a Recurring Role on a Sitcom
Although her ‘X Factor‘ days are numbered, Britney Spears isn’t letting the potential pink slip affect her career. The pop star is reportedly looking onward and upward at the possibility of starring in a TV sitcom.
According to RadarOnline, a source says that the singer and her team are looking at scripts for recurring roles. “Britney’s manager, Larry Rudolph, is reading television scripts that the singer could accept,” the insider says. “Britney’s dad, Jamie feels that having his daughter on a sitcom would be a good fit for her. Britney needs to be kept busy, and a structured environment such as a television sitcom would be a natural fit for her.”
Spears is no stranger to the small screen. The 31-year-old got her start on the ’90s revival of ‘The Mickey Mouse Club'; starred in her own reality series, ‘Britney and Kevin: Chaotic;’ and has since made guest appearances on ‘Glee‘ and ‘How I Met Your Mother.’
In addition to the potential TV role, Spears is also keeping busy by working on her next full-length album. In a recent Twitter chat, the singer told fans that she’s “collaborating with some new inspiring producers” on the follow-up to ‘Femme Fatale,’ adding that she’s “working hard.”
