I rarely talk about celebrity gossip on the blog because I don't like to fuel the media machine in that way, even a tiny bit. However, when the CNN report popped up on my home page about Britney Spears shaving her head, I had to say something.
Most of the commentary I've read has called Ms. Spears' new haircut a cry for help, but I wonder if that is true. I've heard of guys with locs shaving their head clean to symbolize a fresh start. Could it be that Britney is trying to take a new direction? With the bald head, she resembles a monk more than a party girl. Perhaps she will develop a more contemplative attitude to go along with the new 'do.
