Britney Spears spoke with reporters at a press conference earlier this week about ‘Crossroads’ and USA Today was there. In addition, they spoke with Cher about Britney’s attempt at acting and the musician/actress said of her younger peer, “I see Britney really giving it her all. You have to start someplace. In five years or 10 years, she’s not going to be who she is now. You polish it. You go two steps to the side and a step backward and five steps forward. It’s a life experience. You fall down, you get up.” For more comments from Britney, mother Lynne, and Mandy Moore, click here.

Last night’s Weekend Update included the following report from Tina Fey, “Cher announced this week that she would not be performing with Britney Spears on the young pop star’s November HBO special, because sadly, Cher has to go back to the shop for repairs. The two stars actually have a special bond, as Britney’s breasts are made out of Cher’s old nose.”
Cher won’t be appearing on Britney Spears’ HBO special on November 18 at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. Cher revealed to the New York Post’s Liz Smith, “I’ve told Britney how disappointed I am because I am really looking forward to performing with her. We have been talking about this for over a year.”
Cher is citing schedule conflicts with her new album, “Living Proof,” as the reason, saying, “The European release date was pushed ahead and it’s impossible for me to be there and in Las Vegas at the same time. Britney has been extremely sweet and understanding, and I know we will do something together soon!”
