. It is very sad. Odds are even that she won't make it to 30. If she does, it will be as some other unrecognizable creature, in the way that ultra-celebrity transformed Howard Hughes and Michael Jackson. Some say she's
Unfortunately, the only hope for her would be if everyone completely ignored her from now on. I think this post proves that that is not going to happen.
I knew this was too juicy for you to ignore. I'd like to go on record as predicting her demise. It will end in a trailer park in Hemet, CA. Legal guru Howard Stern will be at her bedside.

She's already at the bottom; now she's starting to dig...

Britney is DA MAN!
How'd that line go?
"I just wanna slap yer bald head and lick it!"

This is pretty hard to watch. She clearly has some serious problems and nobody around her that is able to direct her toward some help. Maybe by shaving her head she is getting closer to a state of mind where she will fail to recognized herself and ask why.
This is a moment when it would be humane if the media would ignore her. People stop all the time to get some mangey dog out of traffic what's the problem here? Dog got too much money?

I agree that it's sad. I just keep hoping that someone she can respect will step in and give her some insight, direction, and support so she can get herself into a better state of mind and take care of her mom duties.

Yeah, and this time she should let ALL of her hair grow back.

Almost makes me want to watch WWF instead of read the news. One day I was wondering, "Why is Zsa Zsa Gabor's husband involved in Anna Nicole's death?" Once I found out the answer, I wished I hadn't asked. I intentionally didn't click on your link, but I assume it has to do with Britney shaving her head and getting tattoos. If this keeps up, Kevin Federline will get custody, no contest. I remember a couple of years ago when you had an "American Skankwoman" category. Things have progressed far beyond that...

Consumers of pop culture hit rock bottom
THE transformation of John Q. Public from music fan into freak with no life gathered pace this week as pop icon Britney Spears made headlines for the simple act of shaving her head.
Spears, 25, was the most searched-for topic at Technorati.com, a search engine for weblogs, indicating that many net-users shared Public's obsession.
There are increasing fears that Public and others like him are wasting hours of their lives in pondering the implications of Spears's choice of coiffure, and other, similarly insignificant events in the lives of celebrities.
Friends of Public originally took comfort by blaming mainstream media for his unusual degree of interest in the issue. He was first alerted to Spears's new haircut by his local television station, and subsequently used Google News Alerts to supply himself with a steady stream of reportage and punditry about the affair. But since then he has found ways to proactively waste his time through his own efforts, such as musing on his blog about the possibility of shaving his own head "out of solidarity with Britney".
Regular readers of the blog are not yet certain whether the comment is sincere, or only intended ironically.
"The first step to regaining a sense of perspective comes when the pose of victimhood is put aside", said Dr Souljah Nitsyn, president of the Making A Mountain Back Into A Molehill Foundation. "If only there were evil media somewhere, talking about trivia as if it were important, and it were necessary only to change the channel and never tune in to them again. But the line dividing common sense and unhealthy obsession cuts through the heart of every weblog. And who is willing to destroy a piece of his own weblog?"
Spears herself could not be reached for comment.

Isn't shaving all your body hair standard when receiving treatment for crabs? LOL

You know Bob, that's what I was thinking. She's trying to get rid of the last traces of the Kevster. Sadly, since she spent fifteen minutes crying in her SUV, after a tumultuous argument with her mother, it's pretty clear that she's stuck somewhere in adolescent rebellion, very sad. She doesn't appear to be equipped to pull out of the emotional nosedive. Why aren't there analysts chasing after a fee like lawyers? Where is Dr. Handy when you need him?

For once, I agree with Strawman: If only the entertainment media would stop publicizing ever little bit of what Brittany does...
But, getting them to do a humane act is like converting a dog to vegetarianism: It's against their basic nature.
I forgot where I read this, but in referene to the Grammys, or some recent MTV event, some columnist said "Whodathunk we'd see the day when Christina Aguilera would look better, more classy, and less skanky than Brittany Spears?"

On a funnier note:
Ooops she did it again.
She proved that she's dumb.
She's not that smar-ar-ar-ar-art.

"She's trying to get rid of the last traces of the Kevster."
True, but she didn't count on my ability to ejaculate Velcro-tipped sperm.
Posted by: Kevin Kim at February 20, 2007 06:01 AM (1PcL3)
Kevin... ummm: EWWWW!!!
Bad enough you talk about ejaculation, worse that you say it was Brittany involved, but the story is that she shaved her head
Just what were you aiming at?
Posted by: ElMondoHummus at February 20, 2007 07:16 AM (xHyDY)
Poor girl, you've driven her to rehab.
She checked in yesterday to Malibu retreat, the flavor de jour of the shaved private parts flashers club.
That means you are supposed to leave her alone now, right?
So, who's got the kids? Maybe Paris and Nicole?
Posted by: shelly at February 21, 2007 03:22 AM (SLFj+)
Now THAT would be a fucking hilarious show. Who's Got Britney's Kids? It could be a different set of fuckups each week. Can you imagine the week Howard Stern gets to watch them in the Bahamas?
Finally the truth is out. She shaved her head to dodge the drug test. Kinda makes sense.
