Britney's Disastrous

Photo Shoot

7/23/2007 8:56 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0723_britney_ok_01_ex-1TMZ has learned that Britney's self-arranged photo shoot and interview with OK! Magazine was a complete disaster. We're told that the photos are so bad, execs at the magazine are, at this moment, trying to decide whether to report what actually happened -- or sanitize the truth to protect the pop train wreck.

According to multiple sources, Britney's behavior during the interview was "nothing less than a meltdown." She was, according to our sources, "completely out of it" during the shoot. The photos are "so bad" we've learned, that to publish them could "kill her career."

Apparently, Brit Brit's eyes rolled back in her head at one point, causing her to look half dead. Her mood, we're told, was extremely erratic. She took frequent bathroom breaks our source says, and each time she returned her mood would change. She was also completely paranoid during the entire interview, fearing at one point the ceiling was about to cave in on her. Out of control y'all!

We've also learned that Brit had some issues with hygiene on the set as well. At one point, Britney ordered up some fried chicken to munch on. We're told after she chowed down, she wiped her hands on a several thousand dollar dress that she was wearing for the shoot, staining it with grease. Yuck! One of her dogs also needed some assistance in the housebreaking department. Our on-set spy says that the dog pooped all over the floor, and Brit used (what else?) -- a dress to clean it up! How trashtastic!

As for how Brit looked for the photos, another nightmare. We've learned that OK! hired two of the best hair and makeup artists in L.A. to transform the once-bald beauty into something more presentable, but she wasn't havin' none of that. She refused to let the hired help touch her, opting instead for her "skanky friends" to do her hair and makeup. No wonder she always looks so fantastic!

And if you're wondering where her mom/publicist/lawyer/friend/ANYONE was to help her out, we're told that even her cousin Alli (who until recently was working as her personal assistant) couldn't deal, and is "done" with Miss Spears.

We'll see when OK! hits the stands this week -- if they actually have the balls to print the truth about what happened. We're guessing they don't!

A call to Brit's rep was not immediately returned. A rep for OK! would not discuss the upcoming issue.

Most Celebs prefer to bring their own people for hair & makeup or request certain people they like and have worked with in the past this is not so rare and would have been discussed prior.

Brit has surrounded herself with yes people and eliminated those who don't agree with everything she does. The girl has some issues I agree, But some of TMZ's article goes a little to far over the line of fairness.

I just want to hear Brit's reasoning in her words, I don't care what she wears. I'm sure OK will give us that!. The rest, her photo shoot, her Gucci gown I could care less. Why should OK Mag put all that in? if true at all.

Get out of the public eye already. You create your own trouble. Move out of town!! If it bothers you what people think...why give it to them?? You need shock treatment or a labotomey. You fried your brain on something, girl. You are never going to be that skinny, firm, young, cutie with the squeeky clean reputation again. You blew it....or did you snort it???

You got it right. 100%
Bipolar, Manic depressive, same diagnosis. She needs immediate attention. I just do NOT understand how this has not been taken care of by her family. I really feel so sorry for her. It is not drugs, people. She needs medical attention, like yesterday.

I truly think drugs (including alcohol) are her main problems. She has stated that she is not an addict. If she isn't, heaven help her, because she sounds like she is bi-polor or worse. Her mother could have her committed to a good hospital that could , hopefully, help her. She is crying out for help...I hope she gets it.

If TMZ has made any part of this up just to sell magazines, I hope she sues the hell out of them.

Brit's filthy rich. She doesn't have to behave like the rest of us. She has credibility from her earlier music career. So what if she doesn't perform anymore. She doesn't have to. She's got $100 million. She can wipe up dog poo with a fancy dress if she wants to. How does that hurt anyone? She can rub herself in public all she wants. How does that hurt anyone? She can act eccentrically, she can hire her friends to dress her like crap, she can shave her head, she can get a tattoo, she can shave her pubes and show it off, she can buy an unhousebroken puppy, whatever, as long as she's not breaking the law, she can do whatever she wants. She's already set for life. She doesn't need to please the media or the public or anyone. I love her for that.

Anyone ever hear of an actress from the 1940's by the name of Frances Farmer? Well, Spears is heading in that direction. Mental illness is a horrible thing. And I think that is exactly what is wrong with her. Drugs is too easy an answer. This behavior is telling. It's not even fun to gawk at her anymore. This is looking to be a tragic.

This sounds so bizarre that you couldn't make it up, and so much so that I probably think it is actually true (or a good chunk of it is).

Britney contacted OK, so they should print everything. The fact is she seriously needs some help and if they don't print it, she will just get worse. Her fans are pathetic -- defending her over and over is basically just enabling her to get away with her behavior. She really needs some help and unless people stop protecting her, she will never be forced into getting better. Her mood swings as of late seem really bad -- not sure if her situation is getting worse or maybe the gossip is true that she is pregnant, and her hormones are all out of sync and making her act strangely.

I see where you are coming from but there is nothing much her folks can do. She is no longer a child and they have no control over that situation. The only one with any control is probably (and surprisingly) Kevin. He is the daddy of those children and perhaps the only one that might force some sense into this girls head even if only legally. I only hope anyway for alls sake!

Honestly, who cares? Just stop paying attention to her and it will go away! How can she afford all those drugs? Because OK! magazine paid her a ton of money for the photo shoot. If you don't buy into this crap, then magazines will not pay her to take photos of her and we won't have to read that she has "yet again" fallen off the wagon. Don't buy her CDs, don't watch her videos, and don't buy magazines with her on the cover or anywhere inside. I don't care about her now, I don't care that she will be going back to rehab in a few months, I don't care that she will take a "vacation" and then launch a comback tour after she finds Jesus. The only story I want to read about her is how her children were taken away from her and placed in a safe, positive environment. People, there are other semi-attractive blonde girls out there. Why do we have to focus on this one?
