Pop superstar Britney Spears survived the worst year of her life to make a spectacular pop comeback. Britney Spears hit headlines for all the wrong reasons back in when she suffered a highly-public breakdown in the full glare of the world's spotlight. The image of Britney, 37, emerging from a salon with a freshly-shaven head and attacking a paparazzo's car with an umbrella has become one of the most famous snaps of that decade.
The latest buzz on Britney Spears has a lot of people shaking their heads. It wasn't long ago that few thought or cared about what went on inside the mind of the pretty, perky pop star. Now, after she shaved her head in a bizarre episode that culminates a months-long saga of controversial behavior, it's the question being asked by her fans, her foes and the general public: What was she thinking?
In an upcoming documentary designed to help launch her comeback, the singer candidly addresses her erratic behaviour and her ongoing battle with loneliness. What the hell was I thinking? You have to be that way, so I'm kind of stuck in this place and it's like: How do you deal?
By then, the pop tart was a superstar, but after a quickie marriage and split from Kevin Federline and two kids, she was on a downward spiral — Partying with no panties! Collapsed in a club! Investigated by L.
By Andy Soltis. Schleimer suggested to the LA jury that Spears was afraid a judge would order a test of her hair. If drugs were found, the judge could take away her two sons and give custody to ex-husband Kevin Federline.
Remember Feb. The tabloids went wild! Shocking photos emerged of the young singer walking into the salon, taking a trimmer to her own head, and looking wild-eyed as her hair fell to the floor.
Until she shaved her head, I had not spent a moment thinking about Britney Spears. But the photographs of her shaved head stopped me short. They were fascinating.
The world had already been watching Britney Spears unravel for years when she walked into a hair salon in Tarzana, California, a decade ago and shaved her head. Images of a wide-eyed Spears bald as the day she was born, gritting her teeth, are memorable not only because they are visually jarring when compared to her polished pop-star looks, but due to the nature of the act itself. She recoiled from celebrity culture by mortifying her own flesh.
In the centre of my left thigh, there sits a roughly six-by-six-inch black and grey tattoo that was given to me by my partner just over three years ago. It depicts the floating head and manicured hand of Britney Spears, frozen in the iconic moment of shaving her head, an act that spawned a massive tabloid spectacle and, a decade later, remains fodder for a myriad of internet trolls and memes. I grew up with Britney.
