I’m still not sure what possessed Britney to shave off her locks. One thing is clear, this is a message: Britney needs help. The pop princess had a one day stint in rehab, then comes back to L.A., and shaves her head, completely bald. Afterwards, she goes to a tattoo shop and gets new tats.
Is Britney Spears having a breakdown? I’m no psychiatrist, but I’m going to guess that all signs point to yes. A renown pop star at a young age and having the world at her feet, Britney could have anything she wanted. She made number one hits, got married and divorced in two years, and has spawned two children. She can afford to spend $20,000 a night on classy hotel rooms and have just about anything or anyone (except maybe Justin).
Like the girl in her song “Lucky”, maybe there’s something missing in her life:
Shes so lucky, shes a star
But she cry, cry, cries in her lonely heart, thinking
If theres nothing missing in my life
Then why do these tears come at night
Britney now looks lost and burnt out and in need of support and help from her family and friends. As a non-celebrity, I’d say that when you’re confronted by a ton of cameras flashing and people taking note of your every move, there has to be a need for privacy and respect. It sounds to me as if she wants to be left alone, so maybe she can find herself.
Is there a new Britney in the works? Only time will tell.
