The facts date back to February 16, 2007. The whole world discovers, amazed, that Britney Spears shaved her head. But what happened to the singer that made her come to do this? According to information published by The Mirror this Tuesday, February 16, the American star would have made this decision because she wanted “no one else to touch her hair”, said Emily Wynne Hughes, a tattoo artist to whom Britney Spears confided . She then explains: “She told me that she was fed up with everyone touching her hair, it made her sick and she didn’t want it to happen anymore”. So, she had gone to a hairdressing salon, asking Esther Tognozz, the hairdresser, to shave her head. Faced with her refusal, she grabbed the mower and did it herself. The images had been around the world since at the time, the young woman was very followed by the paparazzi, happy to be able to immortalize this moment. However, she was surrounded by bodyguards who, as the hairstylist explained in a 2019 documentary, “did nothing but try to stop the paparazzi from taking pictures.” Following that, she experienced a real descent into hell.
Britney Spears’ career has been marked by her many hits, including Toxic, Womanizer and If U Seek Amy, songs that are still very popular with the public today. However, she also lived through hell for many years which was traced in the documentary Framing Britney Spears, released on February 5. We can therefore see that her career quickly declined following the media relentlessness of which she was the victim. There is also his divorce from Kevin Ferderline, the loss of custody of his children but also his placement under guardianship. A documentary to which the main interested party reacted on February 10 on her Instagram account. She wanted to post a video of a performance in Las Vegas: “I can’t believe this Toxic performance is three years old !!! I will always love to be on stage … but I take the time to learn and be a normal person … “she says first. “Remember that no matter what you think you know about other people’s lives, it is nothing compared to what that person is actually experiencing behind the lens,” she concluded. A meaningful message that refers to the fight she has been waging for several months against her father Jamie Spears.
A new step for Britney Spears
For twenty years, Britney Spears has been under the tutelage of her father Jamie. A situation that the American star could not stand and for which she had initiated steps several months ago. His lawyer, Samuel Ingham had first sent a letter to the Los Angeles judge in charge of the case last November to let him know the state of mind of his client. In it, he indicated that she had made the decision to no longer perform on stage, as long as her father was in charge of her career. It seems that the wheel is finally turning for Britney Spears since the court rejected her father’s request on Thursday, February 11 in which he opposed the appointment of the consultancy firm Bessemer Trust Co as co-curator. A first victory for the singer.
