Britney Spears had an interesting Friday night... No, the popstar wasn't photographed for her lack of clothes - rather, it was her lack of hair that caught the paparazzi's eye. Spears paid a visit to a San Fernando Valley hair salon and emerged with a decidedly unusual new look. "Britney came in and said she wanted them to shave her head," a source at the salon told Us mag, who said that when the stylist refused, "Britney grabbed the hair clipper and started doing it herself." After leaving the salon, Spears made her way to a tattoo parlor in Sherman Oaks for two new tattoos. An employee at the parlor revealed that Spears said, "I don't want anyone touching me. I'm tired of everybody touching me," when asked why she shaved her head. "She wasn't making sense at all and you could tell she's not in a good place at all, and that she is totally freaking out," said the tattoo store worker of the popstar's state of mind. "She was a nightmare to deal with. She was screaming and flipping out from the pain and wiggling her body all around." Spears's new tattoos were a black, white and pink cross on her lower hip and red and pink lips on her wrist. "After she left the shop we all just looked around and said to each other, 'We just saw a huge celebrity on the verge of a nervous breakdown,'" said the insider. However, according to a report on a Canadian news website, another employee of the tattoo parlour had a different take on the popstar, saying, "She seemed fine. I didn't really notice [her bald head] at first, she had a hood on when she showed up." X17, which has more photos of Spears shaving her head, reports that Spears called someone from the hair salon to open up the store for her, and an agency photog claims the popstar was crying in her car for ten minutes before venturing inside. Let's hope the poor girl gets whatever help she needs. She's clearly going through something very serious.
