A day after the shocking news of Britney Spears shaving her head, everyone started weighing in.
It’s only natural, then, that the media would seek comment from the studly pop superstar who took Britney’s V-card, Justin Timberlake.
But unlike last week, when he jokingly remarked that his ex seek help – and that OK! Magazine was going to start saying bad things about her – the man who’s bringing SexyBack looked sad and maybe even a little depressed when asked about Britney’s shaved head.
As he was walking away from the paparazzi, there was only silence. But after about two minutes of being hounded, he spoke up.
“It was a smart choice, she is starting over, cleaning herself up. It was the kind of thing you wouldn’t expect most people to do. So she is taking a chance,” he said of his bald former babe.
That may be, but regardless, Justin wasn’t about to give the press any good sound bites. In fact, he was quick to heap praise upon Britney’s (dubious) hot new look.
“She looks amazing, very GI Jane. She can pull off anything.”
Demi Moore? Rolling in her grave.
Britney can take comfort in Justin’s kidness. But we’re guessing Timberlake would concur that his (possible) current flame, Scarlett Johansson, gets the edge in hotness these days.
