Headline/press release/correction trifecta: Britney NOT playing lesbian killer stripper

“Britney Rep: Singer Not Playing Killer Lesbian Stripper In Film”

A rep for Brit denied the reports, telling Access Hollywood, “Though she definitely intends to explore acting roles down the road, right now she’s concentrating on recording her next album.”

Somewhat of a surprise, since it wasn’t just the London scandal-sheet tabs that reported it: so did the Daily Telegraph, a respectable broadsheet, and even the LA Times. (None were sourced, of course.)
