The Gospel According To Britney or: I still believe....(still belieeeeeve!)
By Alisha Giampola (Actor)
I am convinced that people from the future live among us. No, hear me out.
Sometimes I hear people saying crazy shit and wearing insane outfits on the subway, and I'm like: "Obviously, this person is mentally disturbed." But then I really think about it, and I realize that if I as I currently am, had travelled in time back to say, the 1950's, and started announcing things like: "Women should never ever douche!" or, "We have a black president!" people would probably put me in the nuthouse. Because in the 1950's, that was very likely; people in white coats would just come right up to you and put you away in a 'hospital' with a scary nurse and a stereotypical Native American man named Chief.
But seriously, think about it: what if there were actually people from the future living amongst us and all of the stuff they were saying like "The aliens are coming to take your babies!" or "Osama Bin Laden is actually alive and living with Elvis in Brazil!" were TRUE?
Sometimes I have this feeling in my own life, when I have inadvertently been the person from the future myself. Not to sound too much like everyone's drunk uncle, who when confronted with the idea of hands-free calling, or no-stick pans will proclaim that they had thought of that fifteen years ago. Because just forming the idea that it would be really nice to have this or that doesn't necessarily entitle you to the rights of having invented it.
However, every once in a while, it really is uncanny what significant thing you will predict over a couple glasses of wine and a few scoops of mint chocolate chip ice cream. I am, of course, talking about the new Britney Spears musical about the life of Christ.
If your immediate reaction was "Uh, Alisha, WHAT Britney Spears musical about the life of Christ?!!?!?!?!?", then let me enlighten you.
Spears: The Musical. This is actually happening, you guys.
