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."

Just another example of the media spoon-feeding mindless junk as "news" while the government tramples on our freedoms and liberties. How many of you have heard about President Bush's new executive order (signed into effect July 17) that will effect your free speech? How about the Real ID where you will have to show your "papers" as you travel through the country that will be mandatory by the end of 2009?(Nazi Germany anyone?) Please people wake up and investigate what the real news in this world should be and not what Brit, Lindsey and Paris are smoking, drinking and inhaling. At least they can say they were "out of it" while America and the world are falling apart. Can you say that?

Somebody please get this child some help...before she hurts herself, her children or someone else. It breaks my heart to see her self destructing before our very eyes. Instead of everyone trying to make a buck on her breakdowns, why don't they help her? Because it makes a good story and lots of money for them...that's why! Let's remember, she had no "normal" childhood, two babies very young, and went through a very messy, very public divorce from a man she loved very much months after the birth of her second child! Any one of those things would send someone into a depression which can cripple you emotionally. Especially after having babies. Postpartum depression is horrible. I know. Many, many women know....Then to go through a divorce months after?? How many of us could go through that and come out unscathed?? She had to do it with the whole world watching! I was never a Brit fan in the past but I just feel so badly for her suffering so much...and the world seems to love watching her suffer. I don't understand that at all. Would we feel that way if it was one of our own children? I doubt it. Why then do we love reading about Britney's problems?? Yes, she's spoiled, yes, she has drug problems...but why are people enjoying watching her suffering like this??? She's a little girl with very big problems. Let's show a little compassion....and understanding for her. Someone get this little girl the help she needs....before it's too late.

with all the money these young girls have, someone, probably drug dealers, may have given these girls some very nasty drugs, and they will be lucky to ever, EVER,( even with all the money in the world ) the same again. I have seen it happen to some of the smartest, most beautiful women. words of wisdom to all you girls, this can , and will happen to you too, if you do drugs.. I WISH THEM ALL THE LUCK, AND ANYONE WHO GETS HOOKED.

Who Cares    

The magazine had to buy the film, pay for the electrcity, pay for water, hire the photog's, pay for assistants, pay attorney fees, pay rent, pay the caterers, pay for the clothes that were runied. I feel they should publish the photos and recoup their losses. She knew what was going on, she could have stopped the photo shoot at any time and chose not to. Why should a magazine be out the money when the "star" is out of control. If she doesn't want the photos published she should reimburse the magazine for the full amount that would be lost by not publishing the photos.

It's Over... Let it be. She should wait a few years and try again. Perhaps by then she can get herself straight

Another waste of skin and bones. She should just be ignored, no singing dates, no recording sessions, no photo ops, just an unemployed second rate singer, with two small children. They should be taken away from her before she tries to sell them.

To Brit's "People,"
Are you all thinking life is like the movie "Groundhog Day" and Brit is Bill Murray, and she'll just keep reliving each day - pulling all these pathetic "oops!-I-did-it-again" antics - until she eventually gets it right, and then all will be well in her world and yours, too? Hellooooo!!! Life is not a movie! She is NOT suddenly going to "get it right" without proper intervention; and by that I don't mean a one-week stay at some posh rehab center. Hey Mom - Brit may be [legally] an adult, but she is still your baby. YOU need to step up [whether she wants you to or not] rather than make commercials, regardless of the cause. That's what we moms do! All these "train wrecks" she has been semi surviving, will eventually catch up with her! Get her off the train, Mom! Get her completely out of the limelight for a few years, and find a professional to teach her how to become a good mother to her children, and a good person to herself [because you can't do it yourself]...& Lohan's Mom, Lindsey needs to get off her "train" as well, BEFORE ITS TOO LATE!...

why does she carry those dumb dogs around everywhere and not spend any time with her kids anymore? I guess the whole Blessed Mother act got old quickly.
True she had/has very little talent beyond her body and mediocre-sounding voice, but what worries me is that some girls still look up to her. There are people who still scream "LEAVE BRIT ALONE ITS NOT HER FAULT SHE IS AN ALCOHOLIC AND "FORGOT" PANTIES AND ALMOST KILLED HER KIDS AND LIED AND WAS ON DRUGS!", well folks, she is a grown woman now with two children of her own and the time has come for her to be responsible for her own actions, rather than blaming everyone else.
Britney you have no class and I would not trade places with you even if you gave me all your money and trinkets, because you live a sad life and the older you get the worse it will become. I fear for you and your poor children who will come to despise their mother.
To the rest of you - whether or not you hate her or love her, you gotta admit there is little chance that she can ever turn herself around. She refuses to admit she has or had a problem in the first place. I'd pray for her but I don't think even that will help her anymore.

Tess, she is not a child, she's a grown woman. You can't force Brit to change. You can't even help her, she has to want to change and want to be helped which she clearly does not :(

Britney need to have me as her friend. I can set her straight. She need to stay away from bad influrance people and intoxicated life style.
She needs to improve her selfworth. She needs to divert her focus to raising her two son instead of going out clubing or find attention at the wrong places. Her friend need to put thier foot down and not go along with what she wants to do. If she has no one to do anything with then eventually she will stop. She need to find a true friends. Someone who can be honest with her.
I think that her career is done. She doesn't has it to begin with. She needs to just enjoy the money that she made and make good out of what she can do to the sociaty and do it right by her children. They are the one that have to pay for her behavior.
good luck Britney...

I don't know if she's gonna make it or not. I know we've all had just about enough of her, and Lindsay for that matter. If they want out of show business, just leave already and spare us the madness. There are plenty of young talented [and sober] performers, ready to take their place.
