Looks like a Britney Spears musical is officially happening and it's hopefully heading to Broadway next year. While the musical, "Once Upon a One More Time" is a play on her classic "...Baby, One More Time" it will include a soundtrack of Britney's music. However, it won't focus on her life as some other musician-focused musicals do. Instead, the Britney Spears musical will be a show that centers around a book club comprised of the fairy tale heroines.
It will premiere in Chicago this fall before seeking a home on Broadway the following year. It will include 23 of her songs and she has already seen one reading of the musical and has given her blessing. Previews will begin on October 29th at Chicago’s James L. Nederlander Theater with the official opening set for November 13th.

Ed Sheeran is causing a bit of a stir with his neighbors these days. They are claiming that a "pond" he built near his Suffolk mansion could be used as a swimming pool.
Aerial pictures show the large kidney-shaped pond, which he built on his estate at the beginning of last year. He was seeking permission from the local city council for his water feature, promising it would be used as a wildlife pond to "support nature conservation".
The application Ed submitted said that the pond housed "well-established" water plants and an "array of wildlife", including a common newt and a water boatman. The council had no problem granting his request as long as the pond was not used for swimming. However, neighbors are convinced that Ed is planning on using it as a swimming pool over the summer.
A jetty and a set of steps were recently added to the pond and he says they were needed to help clean the pond. Neighbors are not buying it and in fact, a few of them have already complained about the loud music coming from his property on a regular basis.
