More Britney video went up on X17.
This video shows Britney in the hair salon. It doesn’t show the actual cutting of the hair, just Brit sitting in the salon chair. You know, I was explaining all this to my father tonight (in addition to the death of Anna Nicole, which he just heard of today — “I was wondering why the news was showing so many pictures of a nobody,” he said), and he made a rather astute observation when I told him that Britney had ended up shearing her own head: “Couldn’t she just have stayed home and done that?” And it’s very true. For as much as she claims to despise the paps, she really could have just stayed home and done it, rather than making it a media field day. I’m telling you guys, this had something to do with Saturday being Paris Hilton’s birthday. She wanted to prove that she could still be the media queen. Anyway, most horrifying of all, at the end of the video, Britney drives away. Like, she is behind the wheel. Ugh.
This video begins with Brit telling a paparazzo, “Go fuck yourself” when he asked her why she shaved her head. It follows her into a tattoo parlor, where you can actually see the tattoo artist getting to work. She squeezes her bodyguard’s hand to deal with the pain. You’d think she’d be drugged enough already …
This last video is more from the tattoo parlor. She finally pulls off the gray sweatshirt and gives the photogs a good shot of her head. The funniest part of this is all the voices in the background like “Oh my God, she’s bald!” The paparazzi and passers-by are freaking out. The bodyguard pays, and Brit gives the tattoo artist a hug. You can hear a young girl in the background, probably on her cell phone, saying “Dad, I can see her perfectly!” By the time she leaves the tattoo place, the police are there to deal with the crowds.

In a creepy twist to the Britney Spears saga, L.A.’s ABC 7 reports that Body and Soul Tattoo — which did Britney’s two post-shave tattoos — has inked Anna Nicole Smith in the past. Is Britney actually trying to set herself on the same path to disaster? It sure looks like it …
In other news, a lock of Britney’s hair from the shaving is now available on eBay. Bidding is up over one million dollars (but shipping is free!!!) with six days to go still. Know why? Drug testing, people. Drug testing. There’s a lot of money in that story. I’m actually really surprised that Brit’s people didn’t make sure to collect every strand of that damn hair immediately. And no one’s mentioned drug testing as a possible reason for Brit’s shave-a-thon. It’s not uncommon for drug addicts to shave their heads so they can’t be tested for drugs that way. Maybe her record label has been threatening to keep her on a shorter leash.
There were reports earlier that someone was selling her lighter and half-finished Red Bull from that night as well, but it looks like that listing has been removed. There are also a ton of other people trying to sell the lock of Britney’s hair, but it looks like those are all shams.
