Has Britney Spears Saved Your Life?

Okay, get this, there is a new BBC documentary called "Britney Spears Saved My Life," in which tons of Britney fans come together to talk about how the pop star's music and turbulent personal life gave them the motivation to overcome some hard times in their own wacked-out existence.

Vikram Jayantis, who directed the documentary for BBC3, recently wrote that even he was skeptical of this crazy-sounding project at first, but soon became a believer that Brit's beats could really save the world.

Vikram wrote, "Hopefully they will turn it on and realize that the kids who get what they get out of Spears, are kind of saving their lives. Being an adolescent can be a really desperate time and you hold onto anything you can that lets you have some control over yourself and have some identity."

One school-aged boy said that Britney's cover of "My Perogative" provided "the courage to leave the Jehovah's Witnesses and get through his best friend dying of cancer, and that song gave him an anthem for how he wants to live. That's what teenagers need, and I would never have expected to find that in Spears, because I thought it was simple pop music."

Don't get me wrong, music has some pretty amazing powers, I just never took Britney's "I'm a Slave for You" as any kind of motivational tool.

Anyway, check out a clip from the documentary above, where some of Brit's biggest fans perform their own tribute to the star.
