You must know by now that Britney Spears has decided that Bald Is Beautiful--that or she was desperate to, at least momentarily, change the subject from her other hairless bits that most of us wouldn't normally think of flashing in public. (I'm trying not to be cynical enough to think that it was just to get back in the public eye after Anna Nicole Smith grabbed the headlines for the past couple of weeks. I think it's actually a sad and not-very-subtle plea for help. Where is her mother? Her manager?)
Whether stunt or plea, the photos are everywhere. So when you get tired of seeing Britney's oddly asexual bald head, Jess at Apropos of Something has a list--and photos!--of eight women who look better bald. (My votes go to Persis Khambatta, Kylie Minogue, and Natalie Portman.)
And if that doesn't get the image out of your mind, allow me to insert another, almost as unsettling: This weekend, Thomas removed a hairball from the shower drain that was about as big as the pile of hair Brit left lying on the salon floor.
