Britney enters the video game world - while Limp Bizkit's Fred Durst gets behind the camera to direct a movie. What's up with BSB? A British tabloid reported that they may be finito. Read on...
It's all about Britney these days. First a clothing line and now a video game. That's right, Miss Spears will have her own video game for Playstation 2. Does Britney think she's the next Lara Croft or what? The game is described as having "entertainment elements that have never been seen before." It's rumored that the game may use a special technology that allows players to see the game from any angle - as if you were directing the camera where to look. This would make the game appear in 3-D. The release date and title for the Britney game haven't been announced yet.
From frontman to director? Limp Bizkit's Fred Durst is directing a feature film called Life Without Joe. The movie is a teen thriller about a group of football players in a small town who are accused of steamrollering a cat on the road. Eventually the local towns people chase them into the woods in Texas Chainsaw Massacre fashion. Shooting is scheduled to start in September when Limp Bizkit finishes playing festival gigs and headlining shows with Godsmack. Life Without Joe is expected to hit the big screen next spring. I wonder if Fred will take the "it's my way or the highway" approach to directing?
Are Backstreet Boys finito? Rumors
of a break-up are circulating faster than you can say "boy band." A British Sunday tabloid reported that BSB is going to pack it in after completing their current world tour. Apparently they will release a greatest hits album early next year before closing the curtain. The idea of leaving the biz while you're hot is behind the supposed break-up. BSB fans shouldn't be alarmed yet. Until BSB releases an official statement I wouldn't put too much faith in the gossip.
