Brittany Spears Shaved her Head


Brittany Spears shaved her head. Did she show confidence by doing this? Did she show she was goofy by doing this? That is for you to decide.

I am sure there are a variety of opinions about why she shaved her head. Like wise there are a variety of opinions of how people think she looks with her head shaved.

I suppose it was a bold move to shave her head. I also suppose that confidence was involved somewhere in her decision. It also seems to me a whimsical move. Perhaps even one lacking thought.

This leads me to the question what is confidence?

On some level it is a personal choice. It is not actually an absolute thing. The culture and times you live in will affect the definition of confidence. For example back in the 1950’s women were “supposed to” get married, have a family and be a homemaker. The women that choose a different path were considered outcasts. Perhaps some viewed them as confident. Now in 2007 this has changed. There is not a “supposed to” anymore. There are now options. You have a greater choice in what you want to do.

Let me give you the 2007 definition of confidence. The 2007 definition of confidence is to do what you are comfortable doing. You need to make your own choices and decisions.

When people are asked what they would like in their lives it is easier for them to respond with what they do not like in their lives. So let’s make this easy. What do you want to be different in your life? Are you confident to change that? Will you be comfortable living your life if these things do not change? Addressing this will help you in defining confidence for yourself. It will allow you to see yourself in a new light. It will clarify what you want to work on. You will never get the right answer if you ask the wrong question. So ask yourself these questions.

Once you do you will see that you do have the confidence to create the life you want.

  3. I think she looks very bad. Before she shaved her head she looked half way decint but not anymore. I think she should have thought it through more. Next thing you kno she will be wearing a wig.

  4. haleigh she is wearing wigs. i guess you think she did not shave her head because she is confident. i guess you think she shaved her head on an impulse. when you act from impulse you can end up having to fix that act over and over.

  5. Actually believe it or not I happen to know Ms.Spears on a personal level and all this attention is really overboard! The truth is her hair was very damaged from over processing and bleaching. It was actually only about an inch long. What you saw were extensions. She just wanted a fresh start for her hair.THATS IT! All the scrutiny on why is just plain silly. No shes not crazy and dealing with what she deals with your buttons would be pushed to as any womans would. Im sure no one will really heed what I’m saying, but I could care less. I just stumbled upon this blog and had a minute to retort,

    Good day
