WHY BRITNEY? It's official- Britney Spears has lost it- her head hair that is. broke the news Saturday when they reported that Spears committed the deed at Esther's Hair Salon in Tarzana, California Friday night followed by a tattoo on her lower lip and another on her wrist.

The article reads: Esther Tognozzi, owner of the salon, tells Us that after Britney shaved off all her hair, She just looked in the mirror and said with tears in her eyes, "Oh, my God, I shaved it all off. My mom is going to be so upset with me.'" Tognozzi says that prior to shaving Britney complained that her extensions were "very tight and uncomfortable."

As most of her fans and ex's everywhere are asking why is she doing this, so are we. And we think we might have an idea...

On top of a marriage gone wrong, having two children right after another and not having made a hit in years- who wouldn't be having a tough time? But as we pretend to be psychologists for the moment, predicts that it was the "bonding" between former boyfriend Justin Timberlake and ex hubby Kevin Federline before the Grammy's that triggered Spear's insanity. Perhaps she should've traded the MeatPacking District for Cali last week and joined her colleagues in the West Coast.

She was once an ambitious artist with lots to offer- we still have hope. We wish her well, and as my mother would say, You can do it, Britney! *ms
