Worst Films of Grammy Stars
Britney Spears in “Crossroads”
Britney Spears in “Crossroads” She was not a girl, not yet a movie star. Given its disastrous reputation, it’s amazing to recall that Crossroads actually grossed $37 million in America, or about three times what Mariah Carey’s equally ill-remembered Glitter did. But its effect on her reputation was so toxic (sorry) that she hasn’t starred in a film in the 11 years since. Time magazine named the drama Shonda Rhimes one of the 10 worst chick flicks of all time. But that girl power—in a film about some gals taking a cross-country drive—did work out okay in helping establish careers for some of the other people on the project, like costar Zoe Saldana and screenwriter Shonda Rhimes. Anyway, Spears didn’t come away empty-handed from her short-lived feature film career: she won Golden Raspberries for both Worst Actress and Worst Song (“Not a Girl. Not Yet a Woman”).
