Britney Gets Shaved

When Britney Spears first came on to the music scene, I didn't think much of her. I didn't really like her music, but I felt it harmless fun for 13 year olds. I listened to that kind of music in my adolescence, as so many girls did.

As time progressed, Britney became more and more of something that I despised, calling herself a role model, yet wearing thongs at her concerts and constantly showing off her little belly ring attached to sculpted torso. I thought, "It's one thing for a celebrity to dress like this, but its another to do it and then call yourself a 'role model' for children".

I was wickedly amused at her downward spiral at first--the quickie marriages, the truck-stop wardrobe. Just basically showing the world that she is of low class (and not because of how she was raised, where she was raised, or her finances). I delighted in brunette Britney becoming fat, seeing pictures of what she looks like BEFORE the air brushing.

Now, I'm still no fan of hers, but now instead of relishing in her decline, I feel sympathy. Shaving her head is just one more cry for help from her. I've often thought, "I could never handle the pressure of being a celebrity". It appears that Britney could not, either. The revolving door of rehab, the custody battle, the suicide attempts (excuse me, alleged suicide attempts)...

Britney is smiling in that pic of her (see below for the pics) with her shaving her head, but it seems phony. This woman needs some serious help or she is just going to be another 'crash and burn' in the music industry, as well as destroying herself as a person and a mother.

I'm still no fan of hers, but I honestly hate to see someone with all this potential throw it away, to be abandoned and alone with her inner turmoil...that everyone gets to morbidly watch as she falls from grace. I'd like to see her as a success story--to create deep and meaningful music, or just enjoy being a mom. I honestly want her to grow through her pain and become a better, stronger person because of it and really learn from her past mistakes.

The shaved head--Sure, she looks like a man right now, but it'll grow back, its just hair...but its a visual manifestation of her plummet. Britney needs to wake the hell up before she damages herself further, or starts damaging her precious children.

Anyway, those are my thoughts on it. I included a pic of Britney in her early career, before when she didn't have the platinum blonde hair and was actually a litle "innocent". Yeah, kind of weird, that song, now that she has come to this point in her life (you know, "I'm Not That Innocent"). Truer words couldn't be said about Britney.

This post was inspired by a Link & Blog Group Challenge! It was really fun to go a little outside the box with my blog and I had a really fun time writing this. Here are the pics for interested parties:


Britney shaving her head was definitely a strange turn. I'm not sure what her reasoning was, but thankfully her hair all grew back again. She looks so much better with a full head of hair.
