Transcript for A musical celebrating the work of Britney Spears is coming to Broadway
Good morning to you. So, get ready for Britney spears, the musical. Yeah. I'm not making it up. It's a show called "Once upon a one more time" set to open this Chicago. It's kind of brilliant. It's opening this fall in Chicago and then it'll make its Broadway debut in 2020. The show is not about Britney exactly. It's a musical comedy featuring the pop princess' music catalog which will be the backdrop for some other princesses you might know. A new spin on snow white, Cinderella, rapunzel and sleeping beauty. The story follows them and their book club as they discovered through their books they don't need things like -- they don't need prince charmings to save them and the show has an evil stepmother, a fairly godmother, all new takes on this and set to 23 of spears' songs, Britney says this is a dream come true for her. No plans though for Brit to be part on the production. "Once upon a one more time" opening October 29th in Chicago. It's so fun. So creative. Speaking of creative, lady gaga also in the news this morning responding to rumors that she's pregnant. Can we just leave her alone, please. The chatter starting online when gaga broke up with her fiance last month and shared that steamy duet with Bradley cooper. Yeah, that's the one. At the oscars, so, gaga is setting the record straight on Twitter, good thing it was Twitter, by the way and not Instagram. Posting, quote, rumors I'm pregnant? Yeah, I'm pregnant and then she hashtags it lg6. Gaga fans are flipping out and corn firms she's working on her sixth album, everybody. I'm so glad you cleared that up. So exciting. Only true monsters would have known that. The hotly anticipated follow-up to "Joann" from 2016. Gaga not pregnant but hard at work on her labor of love. I like what you did there. Thank you for clarifying a lot of celebrities appreciate you saying that. There is a new artist in our midst. Everybody Pete pigcasso, the painting porker. I had so much fun writing this. He is bringing home the begin instead of becoming it. Okay. It wasn't that good. You guys are so nice. I'm not kidding, paintings were selling for $4,000. Oh, come on. The best part though, the reason you can feel good about this all the proceeds go to animal welfare. Not his piggy bank. Did you just make that up -- No, I wrote that this morning. Pigcasso has an interesting back story saved from the slaughterhouse three years ago she lives on an animal sanctuary in South Africa. Paintbrushes were laying around the barn. She loved holding them and playing with them and now she's like a pig in, well, you know. Living out the rest of her days paintbrush in hand or snout in her own personal studio and has a collaboration with watchmaker swatch. One of her creations is featured on a watch face. Again, all proceeds going to animal welfare. You really Hammed it up on that one. I did. So good. I forgot the ham pun. Thank you, Amy, for bringing that one home.
