Britney provides Jesus soundtrack

Britney Spears' songs are going to be used to create a new musical about Jesus.

SPEARS The Musical: The Gospel According To Britney uses only Britney's songs to tell the story of the birth, life, death and resurrection of Jesus, according to Digital Spy.

No lyrics have been changed and there aren't any spoken words in the show, which is staging a funders' preview in New York City on November 7.

On the show's website, creator Pat Blute wrote: "These are Britney's lyrics. These are Jesus Christ's images. The Britney Spears you see is not Britney Spears. Remember that. The Jesus Christ you read is not Jesus Christ. These are manifestations. Accounts through the media, through the words of followers, of friends, of foes, of villains, of heroes, of liars, of biases.

"It's a falsehood that people believe fame and fortune create happiness. That all 'deaths' receive a resurrection. I hope this project will show you otherwise through the power of listening and the power of forgiveness."

Earlier this week it was reported that maritime security guards were blasting Britney hits from ships off the coast of Africa to ward off Somali pirates.

Merchant navy officer Rachel Owens, 34, who helps guide the tankers, told The Sun: "As soon as the pirates get a blast of Britney they move on as quickly as they can.

"Her songs were chosen by security accompanying tankers because they thought the pirates would hate them the most."
