  Britney hits back at movie critics

Pop princess Britney Spears has stood up for herself after critics slammed her first ever movie, Crossroads.

One said she was "blandly appealing at best".

But others were less nasty, saying: "This may come as a shock, but she's okay."

Britney hates what critics love

Britney fought back and said she hates the kind of movies critics like, preferring "light-hearted, girl-flick, love story movies".

That sounds remarkably like the plot to Crossroads.

The worst review of the movie so far came from the New York Post newspaper, who said it was "a movie so pathetically lame even her most ardent young fans will give this stinker a big thumbs down".

Movie chart

Britney's movie mum, Kim Cattrall
But those fans don't seem have paid the critics much attention, because the film took 10.2m ($14.6m) on its opening weekend in America, good enough for second place in the box office charts.

In the film Britney's mum is played by actress Kim Cattrall, who stars in an adult comedy programme called Sex and the City.

Now Britney is set to star in that show too, playing the naughty niece of Cattrall's character, Samantha.
