Britney Spears to be frozen and brought back to life.
Rather than burn out or fade away, Britney Spears wants to be frozen to sing another day.
The eccentric star wants her body preserved (after death) in liquid nitrogen so future generations might have a chance to enjoy her antics in real-life. Apparently Britney is so enamoured by the idea of cryogenic freezing she's investing in a firm which specialises in the techniques.
The Alcor Life Extension Foundation is one of the oldest companies of its kind, founded in 1972. On its website, the Arizona-based firm gives its aim as: "Using ultra-cold temperature to preserve human life with the intent of restoring good health when technology becomes available to do so."
A pal of the star told The Sun: "Brit gets these obsessions and this is the latest.
"It started when someone told her Walt Disney had been preserved by cryogenics to be revived in the future. That was a myth but it got her researching the foundation and she became convinced it was worth a shot.
"Brit found the whole thing so interesting she spent most of her Mother's Day trip to Disneyland researching the subject on the internet while a nanny took the boys round the park.
"She looked into having her ashes turned into diamonds after she is gone but settled on the chance of getting to live in the future."
But before she invests loads of cash, she has to convince her dad Jamie, who currently holds the purse strings.
The source went on: "Jamie is quite happy to let Brit have her little obsessions, especially when it means she's holed up on the internet safely or watching the Discovery Channel.
"And if she wants to invest her money in cryogenics that's fine, we're only talking $350,000 tops. However, much more than that and he may change his mind."
The company has been the subject of controversy in the past.
Last year ex-employee Larry Johnson alleged, in his book Frozen, that a former baseball star's head stored on the premises had been smashed by staff practicing their batting swing.
What song would you like to see Britney perform one she's thawed? Any?
