She’ll take the mickey out of Hit Me Baby One More time video

Britney Spears is being given a career lifeline – she is being lined up to star in The Simpsons.

And producers of the hit US show want to present the 25-year-old in a favourable light.

‘Britney is ripe for the picking,’ says Yeardley Smith, who voices Lisa Simpson. ‘But we have to do it well – I don’t want to be cruel.’

Brit is tentatively going to appear in a sketch that will take the mickey out of her infamous first video for Hit Me Baby One More Time.

The scenes would take place at Springfield Elementary.

‘There are talks ongoing and it’s hopeful it will happen,’ a show insider tells The Sun.

‘The appearance would be a positive one. Never mind what’s happening in her private life, Britney is big again.’

Well, now she’s got the beehive to make Marge jealous.
