When she's not busy telling the backstage crew at Chatty Man to 'work b*tch' Britney Spears is recording music and prepping herself for a two-year Las Vegas residency, but the former pop princess has also managed to find time to record a documentary while she's at it.

Yep, as per E!, Britney's only gone and done a Beyonce in order to give us (and we quote) "an intimate look at one of the most overexposed yet under-revealed stars of today as she faces one of her biggest challenges ever while finishing her album, shooting videos, doing press - and being a mum."

The 90 minute special is called I Am Britney Jean and, to be honest, we're really not at all sure what to expect from this one. Britters has had her fair share of victories and fails on the telly over the past few years *cough* X Factor USA *cough*, so to say we're a little skeptical is probably a bit of an understatement.

Still, we're sure she's got legions of fans who'll be only too delighted to tune in to E! on December 22 in the USA. We'll keep you posted as regards any possible European air date.
