You may think it's a pretty slow news day when the media starts paying attention to a celebrity's new hairdo, but it's not Britney Spears' haircut that we're in love with; rather, we love the way she chose to announce that she had chopped her locks.
Taking to Instagram to post a collage of pictures — which shows Spears dressed down in a simple leggings and T-shirt combo as she snaps silly photos in her bathroom mirror — Spears basically proved that when it comes to altering her appearance, she's just like the rest of us. I mean, raise your hand if you don't take a series of silly snaps and send them to your friends after you've got a new look.
Spears captioned the post with, "A very much needed haircut," and it's clear that (most) fans are loving how her personality shines through these pictures.
"I love your personality!" roberthawn wrote.
"She is so adorable omg," gsxrboy1103 commented. BearcatttI shared similar thoughts, writing, "Seriously love you so much omg you're the cutest."
"Britt I have always thought and still do your a very pretty lady and beautiful," axsomlove gushed.
But there are some people who really need to get a sense of humor, because instead of seeing Spears' pictures in the way they were intended, critics have blasted her for looking "old" and acting like a teenager. Um, what?
"I'm glad she is doing so well and living healthy, but these pics are just beneath her. She's better and more mature than doing teenage pics," spattyk wrote.
Georgephoenixg was even more harsh with his comments, writing, "Wow, you look so lonely and old."
Niyangxianshen took issue only with the first image, simply writing, "The first one is annoying ....."
