Britney's Disastrous Photo Shoot

7/24/2007 12:34 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Britney SpearsTMZ 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 Gucci 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 Chanel dress to clean it up! How trashtastic!

UPDATE (8:33 AM PT): In a surprising move, OK! Magazine says they're going to show Britney as she really was on the day of her disastrous photo shoot -- the good, the bad and the unbelievably ugly!

In an exclusive statement to TMZ, OK! Editor-in-Chief Sarah Ivens said, "OK! Magazine spent a heartbreaking day with Britney Spears and witnessed first-hand an emotional cry for help that will leave you shocked and sad. This week, on newsstands Friday, the truth will be told."

Why does anyone care about Britney or Lindsay Lohan. These are two usle individuals who cannot survive on their own in the real world. It is amazing to me how much time is wasted on reporting about these two. Come on people! Get a life!

I don't know why she's even in the news to begin with. She never had any talent.
Another fine example of the media spoon-feeding crap to a gullible public.

Should be pretty funny hearing the excuses that are sure to come out of Britney's camp after this latest fiasco

She will be dead, soon. By her own hand, directly---or by her own hand, through her behavior. Unfortunately, she will be no loss.

I don't know what's more sad - the relentless scrutiny these wild things face or their out-of-control behavior. Here's the thing, though: first, let's admit that celebrities aren't going to be role models, they're going to be "celebrities," warts at all. Then maybe let's look at whether these people even ought to be in the spotlight. Lindsey Lohan has talent: I say get her help and get her better career advice so she can, god willing, perfedt her craft. As for Britney, who has absolutely no discernable talent: get her help and then get her job training. PS - don't worry about Paris - she doesn't need talent - she's got money and savvy; she'll be just fine.

She's been having this meltdown since her Mickey Mouse years. A-Typical child star syndrome. We've seen it happen so many times. I really feel sorry for her, Lindsay and the like. They can't help themselves, but they ARE still responsible for thier behavior. She's got to know she's off the wagon again and should get some help. Maybe the help should include staying away from the limelight. She can't handle the stress.

I can't help feeling sorry for her. She is so young. She needs to be held in loving arms and rocked.

Get ready, set, the crack head is about to crash and burn!!!....Need to put her in rehad, tie her down for six months and leave her alone so she can work it out or burn our altogether before she gets on one of these TRIPS and screws up and kills somebody else!! Money doesnt mean anything when u are fooling with a coke or crack head!

I think she is beginning to reliaze that being famous is a hard work to come back when you first fall. She probably got so nervous so bad at the photoshoot and worrying that the photos might end up to be another trainwreck story. Unfortunately, it happened. I think she needs to suck it up and own it. She has to pick herself up again but that road to recovery is not easy. She needs to stop behaving like she is right now. Time for her to stop doing dumb things and focus on better things. I thought she was inspired by Madonna? Not.

Madonna knows how to stay afloat through her difficult times... Note to Britney... go for Madge's advice, again!

What britney needs to do:

Back off Redbulls.
Back off clubs.
Back off smoking.
Back off junk food.
Back off alcohol/drugs.
Back off negative people (aka negative influences).
Back off wigs.

Then Britney wouldn't be a trainwreck!

My heart just breaks for her. I know a lot of people want to diss her for her behavior, but honestly it seems to be such a cry for help. I would love to have her as a client, here in the refuge of the mountains, away from L.A. for a week or so. I feel for her and her children.

Everyone in that business has extreme highs and lows ...... there is so much pressure..... and every waking moment, every second ..there is someone .....anyone just like you and me .... with more and less talent , that are willing to do anything to "make it ",and are willing to take youre place ..... for nothing ..... thats just the nature of that business, its high profile ,high stakes ...with way more people than necessary , the ceo's ,the advertising execs, the marketing ,the producing firms ,;profitting from someone else's fame , so many of them ......and most of the time the price is way higher then what they ...the actual "stars" get get paid ...... they become" whores" to the system but ......uhm it seems to me ..that ..well ,its like the less talent they have ..the harder they fall..and this Britiany and Lohan stuff is no more than evidence of that ..they need to go work at Mccdonalds or something they are they'd even trash that job ..... they need to go back to school or something ,neither one of them ... have that "star"-like quality or true talent to back them up when times it hard ..obviously ...... what a train wreck !
