Weary of her wig and longing for her blond locks, Britney Spears had a playful request for her four blond dancers during her four-city mini-tour.
“Would y’all cut your hair?” she said, according to Criscilla Crossland, one of the dancers.
Spears showed the dancers her buzz cut, but no one took her up on the invitation.
Almost three months after shaving her own head, Spears has gone from cue-ball bald to a 2-inch crop of hair.
It’s a stunning look, Crossland said: “She looks so good she should model.”
Prediction: Look for Brit to sell her Annie Lennox look for a magazine cover any day now.
Spears wore her brown wig during Sunday’s 14-minute lip-synching performance at the House of Blues in Las Vegas.
The mini-tour was a success, Crossland said.
“It was just to create a buzz, and it worked,” said Crossland, who has spent most of the past 10 months as a dancer on tours with Tyrese and rapper Snoop Dogg.
Crossland said Spears has been rehearsing two of her songs from her upcoming album. “They’re amazing,” the dancer said.
THE SCENE AND HEARD
David Hasselhoff had visitation rights to his children suspended Monday by a Los Angeles County Superior Court judge. It’s the latest fallout from the videotape of an intoxicated Hasselhoff barely able to talk while his 16-year-old daughter filmed him. Hasselhoff is allowed to have telephone contact only, according to the celebrity Web site tmz.com. A May 21 hearing has been set to determine his long-term visitation rights after the judge reviews the video.
