Brtiney needs to grow up and stop acting out like a spoiled child. She is a mother now and chose to be such, so she needs to get a grip and start thinking about her children instead of herself! So her marriage fell apart! So what. We all knew it would but the world goes on. It's time for her to get a little sense slapped into her and I just wish her mother or someone close to her would just do it! Grow up Britney!!!

What are we ALL trying to do to this poor out of control kid??? push her over the edge? It's so sad to see that we can't even let this poor person think clearly. BACK OFF and let her deal with her problems, after all I think most of have gone through our early twenties in some form of similarity. I'm sure it hurts her to hear the terrible things that are being said about her (most by jealousy)....are we not all humans??? I'm sure some of you are thinking "she put herself in the business so she has to deal with what comes with that" I too felt that. I think we all forget that these people are human as we are, and have feelings like we do, so don't you all think that we are REALLY pushing this human being to break????? it won't be pretty! PLEASE PLEASE back off!!!!!

Everybody should just leave her alone!! She is hotter bald than all you hater bitches out there writing shit about her. You have nothing to do but sit on your computers and talk trash about someone who obviously has more talent then you could ever dream of having,seeing as though she made it. She is going through alot now and all your doing is adding to it. Didnt everybody learn their lesson with Anna Nichole Smith? These are real people with real feelings...leave her alone! YOU LOOK HOT BRITNEY! THEY ARE ALL JUST HATING CAUSE YOU HAVE WAY MORE THAN THEY WILL EVER HAVE.

Honestly who gives a fuck about Britney Spears? She doesn't know any of you and you all try to defend her stupid actions as if she is your best friend. The only ones you should be concerned about are her two babies...they didn't ask to be born and are the innocent victims here of a sick, neglectful, wacko mother. Someone needs to rescue those babies and get them into a loving environment. If Britney wants to make a shambles of herself and her life she is an adult and can make choices. The children are the ones you should all be addressing here with your concerns not their idiotic mother!

Give her a break. She is trying to prove a point...that she doesn't care what people think. Demi Moore did it for a movie role and that was okay. She was probably fed up with everything and made an impulsive decision (to prove a point) which I'm sure she will be regretting later. LET HER BE!!!

Poor girl, she is obviously having a hard time. Her family needs to get real with her and stop being nice. I don't care how old she is and how much money she has. SHE NEEDS HELP... so family step up or you will be sorry. I feel for her and hope someone steps up.

BRITNEY.....I hope you read these comments! K-Fed entered your life and f***ed you twice over. Running around and partying is not the way to get over him. Go back and make music and the world will give you back the respect you crave! Get ready to hand him the kids and your pin number. I think the reason she shaved her head is because she was losing her hair, from wearing too much weave. Shaving the head will grow the hair back a little fuller, but not guaranteed. BRITNEY I WILL PRAY FOR YOU> YOU NEED JESUS IN YOUR LIFE. Get your sh*t together if you really want to see your boys grow old.

My heart goes out to Britney and I hope she gets the help she needs, but nobody can say her kids should be taken away. We dont know what kind of mother she is. Yes, she parties, so do alot of mom's. The only difference is their not being followed by cameras 24/7. What would your life look like to the rest of the world if every little thing you did was put out there for everyone to see? Give her a break! Do we really have to kick her when she is down?

Brittney really shouldn't be a mother. Apparently she is not a good role model for her children.

You must be a member of Britney's family---after reading your comments.

Do you really think she has made it? Is she really an example of success? Does she have any of the qualities and talent that won our hearts over 7 years ago?? NO, it was a fake front by her to make us think she is something that she is not.

Is she recieving awards of any kind in the last 4 years for her TALENT?

No, we continuously read about her being an uneducated, drunk, cigarette smoking, puking, nasty crotch showing, deadbeat mother.

If she is you IDOL, that means YOU must be a real prize too.

Ignorant Britney fan in denial---

WTF.....are you telling me that no one, no one can save this girl until she reaches rock bottom. Guess what folks someone needs to do something NOW. Where in the hell are her mother, sister, aunts, uncles? What the hell are these people waiting for? A funeral? I find this so sad.
