In psychology, there is a concept called the uncanny valley, which refers to that creepy feeling you get when you see something that looks almost just like a person’s face, but not quite. This also applies to celebrity biopics. When you watch a movie about someone you’ve seen pictures of all over the place for your entire life, and the actor playing that person looks almost just like that person, but not quite, you get the same creepy feeling. That feeling abounds in these new images from Lifetime’s Britney Spears movie, tentatively titled Britney.

Finales always tend toward the polarizing, but most would agree that the 'Breaking Bad' ultimate end "Felina" at least wrapped up the story of Walter White in a conclusive manner (whether or not you believe it to have happened in real life, or inside Walter's head). That said, two high-profile pop culture icons have spoken out against the 'Breaking Bad' series finale, and while we'd be hard pressed to link acclaimed director Oliver Stone and Britney Spears, their bizarre criticisms certainly merit mention.

Homina, homina... wait, what were we doing again? Oh! While 'Glee' season 4 is going back to the well of Britney Spears seems like a questionable decision for a season trying to establish itself as something different, there's no arguing that at least some of the show has grown up with its characters. So if 'Glee' wants to hit us "baby one more time," who better to soften the blow than Ms. Lea Michele herself? And in case you never watch, fellas might want to tune in for this one.

You know, we can remember sitting in Ballroom 20 during the Comic-Con 2011 panel wherein 'Glee' series creator Ryan Murphy promised the show would become more about the interpersonal drama between the character rather than flashy guest stars and tribute episodes.  Yet here we are, only one episode deep into 'Glee' season 4, and it's time for another Britney Spears tribute!  Love or hate the new season, it's hard to deny the full-length performance of 'Hold It Against Me" at least has sex appeal!
