Britney’s Worst Year Ever: February

by

You were there through the bad driving, the head-shaving, and the Criss Angel thing. It’s been a tough year for our girl. No one could have imagined a mere 12 months ago that she’d create such glorious new nonsense every week. Some of the craziness escapes you? Come back every day: We’re counting down the events that made up the Year in Britney.

year_in_britney_2.jpg February 13Beach Blanket Britney – Britney was spotted at a Manhattan nightclub (in the dead of winter, mind you), rocking what the New York Post described as a “bikini and white busboy coat.” Whatever, can’t fault a girl for taking advantage of global warming, right? Anyway, what seemed like one in a growing number of quirks actually was an ominous sign of things to come, for within days, Britney had her first round with…

February 14Rehab, Take 1 – Britney checked in to Eric Clapton’s Crossroads in Antigua, California, and then checked out within 24 hours. It’s not that she didn’t want help, it’s just that she has, like, a really short attention span. [TMZ.com]

February 16A Woman Shorn – That evening, Britney entered a Los Angeles hair salon and asked a beautician to shave her head. When the hairdresser wouldn’t comply, she took matters into her own hands and buzzed herself down to stubble. When asked later what prompted her to do this, she told a paparazzo it was “because of you.” The photogs who undoubtedly made a mint off of shots of the freshly shaved Brit were all, “You shouldn’t have!” [Sky News]

February 20Rehab 2, Electric Boogaloo - If the title of this entry suggests that I’m not taking Brit’s second stint that month in rehab (this time at Promises in Malibu) seriously, it’s becuase, well, I’m not. For you see…[National Enquirer]

February 21Rehab Aborted, Again – …she wasn’t serious about it, again ditching rehab after being there for fewer than 24 hours. It was as though she got dieting and rehabbing confused and decided that yo-yoing was the best method. [FOXNews.com]

February 21 - You Can Stand Under My…Rage – As if a 24-hour turnaround time in rehab wasn’t enough to entertain us, Britney trumped the head shaving of last time by kicking the ass of a photog’s SUV parked outside Kevin Federline’s house. She was reportedly enraged that she couldn’t get inside the pad to see her kids. Undoubtedly, the money made from the shots could have bought about 10 of those vehicles. For all of her hardship and messiness, Britney’s touch is Midas. [X17]

February 22Rehab: Yes, Yes, Yes - Third time turned out to be a charm for Britney, who checked into Promises and would eventually complete the facility’s 30-day in-patient program. Over the course of the time, she learned to sit and stay. So, you know, it just goes to show that she’s still trainable. All is not lost! [TMZ.com]
