That's what is happening to the incomparable Britney Spears, who just can't seem to get a grip these days - on her romantic life, motherhood, or her own appearance (Brit, along with fellow commando queen Paris Hilton, topped Mr. Blackwell's annual worst-dressed list).
According to In Touch Weekly, a former stylist for the pop princess claims that Britney Spears is beyond help, at least when it comes to her looks.
"Don't blame me, okay? I make her up and she just takes everything off and does her own thing," said Britt Bardo, who lists Jennifer Lopez and Kate Hudson as her clients, among others.
Britney's recent fashion disasters have included cavorting around town in a pink bikini beneath a see-through top, painting two out of five nails, and a continuing predilection for leaving the house in no pants.
At least it's not standing in her way of having a good time.
The mother of one-year-old Sean Preston and infant Jayden James seemed to be enjoying herself during a recent boating excursion with a Kevin Federline-esque mystery man with whom she shared several intimate moments.
The man has been identified as 25-year-old Isaac Cohen, an actor and model.
His modeling agent, Brandi Lord, has confirmed the romance to People, with the information that the couple's relationship began "recently... within the last month. He's got a great heart and a good family. He was raised well. He's a gentleman."
Lord insists Isaac Cohen isn't after the singer for her fame adding:
"(He) is not a player. (He) is not out to get a name for himself."
A THG source, who claims to have met Isaac Cohen several years ago, says he was a "smart, sensitive guy who just happens to have a fantastic look. He takes care of himself (absent social smoking) and has great friends."
If Isaac is, in fact, a secure person who could be a steady influence on her life, Britney would - as our source says - be very lucky to be dating him.
Hopefully this is true... but let's remember her track record, in no particular order:
Exactly. We refuse to get our hopes up for Mr. Cohen.
