Not that innocent. Halle Berry delivered a dramatic reading of Britney Spears’ iconic 2000 hit “Oops!… I Did It Again” in a new video, and it’s amazing!
The Oscar-winning actress appeared on the latest edition of Lyrical Improv with Lynn Hirschberg from W magazine, looking radiant in a red top with beachy waves and flawless skin. Berry, who recently celebrated her 50th birthday, kept her composure as she read lines to the pop song from a paper in front of her.
Berry was majorly impressive and made it through most of the lyrics, which obviously sounded ridiculous without the catchy melody. At one point, she let out a laugh while trying to read the line, “Oops, you think I’m in love."
After going through about half of the song, Berry says, “That’s all I got.”
In another clip, Priyanka Chopra and Jodie Foster also teamed up for a dramatic reading of a Spears’ “Toxic” for the video series. While Foster takes it very seriously, Chopra can’t stop herself from belting out the tune and dancing along in her seat.
“Yay, the princess of pop!” the Quantico actress exclaims.
There will soon be plenty of new tracks for stars to dramatically read, since Spears is dropping her new ninth studio album, Glory, on Friday, August 26. The record features her latest hit “Make Me…” featuring rapper G-Eazy. The pop superstar will also return to the 2016 MTV Video Music Awards on Sunday, August 28, for a highly anticipated live performance.
