Britney Alert: She’s lost it! (Her hair, I mean…)

February 17, 2007

I wake up this morning, pet the cat, went to snag a bagel, checked e-mail … at no point did I feel the urge to SHAVE MY HEAD BALD! But Britney Spears did just that yesterday…

Britney goes Bald!In the need to compete for headlines with the circus that has become of the Anna Nicole Smith death aftermath…

  • Spears went to a rehab center in Antigua Thursday (reported by Extra).
  • She checked out a day later and flew back to Hollywood (what? food wasn’t good?), where she went to a hair salon and shaved off all her blonde locks. (Great pics here by X17Online)
  • Then she went to a tattoo parlor and had a pair of lips inked on her right wrist (reported by MSNBC and ABC7).

Now, she’s the second coming of Sinead O’Connor. The pics are available here from People Magazine and here from X17.

As we’ve chronicled in the Britney Watch, Spears has gone from megastar, to megastar mom, to pantyless pop star, to alcohol-fueled joke, to bald freak show. Where/When does this end, Britney?

X17 mentions that it appears that Spears had a massive breakdown, crying for over 20 minutes in her car before shaving her head. Another news report interviewed a tattoo parlor worker, who said Brit was “distraught.”

Maybe this is the bottom for the pop tart … any person in rehab will tell you that you have to hit rock bottom before you can successfully change. Or it’s just another publicity stunt…

Here’s a news report on YouTube of the bald transformation:

Well, Britney’s hair is now at the bottom of a trash can (or on eBay, if the haircutter was smart) … it’s only up from here.

    I was as surprised as you are when I checked [url][/url] first thing this morning and saw the pics. It just goes to show that maybe fame and fortune can’t make someone happy and healthy.

    She’s absolutely CRAZY, but I really like the new look!

    Her motivations for getting it cut are weird though, “I was tired of people touching me”…eh?

    If she doesn’t want people to bother her, she should stop making such a scene of herself.

    Kind of looks like a photo shop “shave” to me. Whatever the reason (and that’s her choice) it looks pretty darn bizarre to me. Perhaps I don’t like it because I would never do it. I love the feel of the wind blowing in my hair, and the ability to change styles whenever I like. Nonetheless, if it’s real, I guess it’s her choice. Besides, she can always afford to get a wig, a great hat, or let it grow a bit and have hair extensions.
    Ahhhh – the choices money enables us to make:)

    If this is rock bottom…good for her. She can rebuild. She’s got a new album coming out later this year and needs to focus on creating that something special.

    Well when I saw this I was in disbelief. Someone needs to talk to her so she won’t jump on the same train as Anna Nicole Smith

    This has got to be a cry for help.

    Worst part. A year ago who would have thunk it that K-fed would be the one to appear to have it more together.

    Now she looks like the trash that she is. I mean really with that money I can dress better and I can even aford some pantys. Her “hair stile” suits her trampy attitude.

    I always wonder… why does anyone care? People shave their heads all the time. I knew about 3 bald chicks in high school. No biggie.

    This is what I have to say to celebrity news: “Shut up and entertain me monkey man!”

    Geez…the LEAST she could have done was donated her hair to Locks of Love or some other charity that makes wigs for cancer patients….

    Selfish bitch.

    She fired her hairstylist and got her make up artist to work overtime. Look like the make up now artist got more than just her face to make up. If you get what I mean.

    Yeah okay i think all you guys that are calling Brittney TRAMPY and a BAD MOTHER i honestly think you should try living one god damn day in her life i pretty much think you would have a nervous break down and shes DEFINETLY not effing selfish for not giving her hair to cancer patients, she has issues, leave her alone. This is exacly the kind of puplicity that makes people like that just leave it be and stop being effing assholes. Shes not a bad mother, she would be a good one if she didnt have all this pressure on her shoulders. I want you guys to live a week in her shoes, yeah thats right i hope you all die with your gay negativity. Brittney will get back on her feet, at least shes trying.

    Stephanie, thanks for reading…
    Britney has tons of people around her that are capable of “putting on the brakes” for her. What’s sad is they are choosing NOT TO. And Britney (ie. their meal ticket) will be hurt by this lack of action.
    Her image has taken a huge plunge, and if she doesn’t get responsible for her actions, she’ll lose her kids and her career.

    I believe there is more to the story of Brittanys break down I mean what happened before does anyone know?? I think its cancer (sorry but I do) maybe it was just a reaction from hearing some kind of bad news? and if it is cancer the shaved head was just a message of some sort who knows I pitty the lady. it could also be a cry to stop so much attention to her or it could be the total opposite she might be doing it for the attention….. or shes just crazy I dont know?

    Tammi, I think you go public if it’s cancer, just for the public sympathy and the “survivor” spin. Also, if she did have cancer, all the party girl stories would go away, I’d think. And the paparazzi would be flamed by the public for chasing after a cancer patient.

    why you are blonde your hair off. so bad your plm like crazy lady britney. very so bad your self and lift .

    Celebrities. Love them or hate them, but everyone insists on knowing whats in their closet. Just because someone chooses an acting/singing/hosting career that puts them in the public eye (for work) doesn’t mean the rest of it that goes on is anybodies business. So maybe the girl’s having a breakdown. Unlike one particularly spiteful, viperous poster on here, I don’t wish her dead because she’s made some life mistakes. Everybody does. But ours aren’t paraded out on the global news.

    Being cruel, hateful and just plain malicious is not okay. It’s never okay, unless you really don’t care that your words might have a consequence. Even indirect. Sure, she might never read it. Probably won’t. Chances of someone she knows reading someone wishing her dead, though, are higher. Relatives, friends. Down the road her kids. Or, maybe friends of her kids.

    Instead of her, imagine it’s you. Your life on display, your worst moment memorialized in infamy, tossed around the world, screamed to your friends and family.

    Or, imagine your loved ones finding out that you hate someone you’ve not met with such a passion that you wish them ill. You wish them every vile thing you can think of, then hope they die.

    I wonder what they’d think.

    PS to ‘unknown woman’:

    A womans beauty is in her hair? Go walk into a children’s ward for cancer patients and tell them they all aren’t beautiful. Any other cancer patient for that matter. Or the woman who’s hair is thinning due to age or genetics. Fire victim.

    That was an ignorant statement.
