Did Britney Spears shave her head torebel against her overprotective mother — or just to give her overtreated tresses some tough love?
The pop star’s bizarre buzz cut this weekend sparked talk that Britney was going through a very public meltdown. But the troubled diva (who has been sporting a blond wig on her newly bald head) may just have been acting out. A source told Web site X17 that after arguing with her mother over her sudden departure from rehab (Britney spent less than 24 hours at the Crossroads treatment facility before ditching), the 25-year-old singer shaved her head as an act of defiance.
After shearing her locks, Britney reportedly exclaimed, "Oh, my God, I shaved it all off. My mom is going to be upset with me."
But according to another account, Britney was just practicing mane maintenance. One online report claims that after years of bleaching, coloring and extensions, her hair was badly fried — and bald patches were beginning to appear. So Britney decided to start over with a clean slate, so to speak.
Sounds plausible … but we’re not exactly ruling out the "cry for help" theory.

Oscar-nominated actor Ralph Fiennes can add another honor to his résumé: He’s a confirmed member of the Mile High Club, according to a kiss-and-tell stewardess.
Although flight attendant Lisa Robertson originally denied making a high-altitude love connection with the "The English Patient" hottie, she has now fessed to friends that she and Ralph did the deed in the restroom of an airplane en route to India, reports the New York Post.
And that brief bathroom break wasn’t their only sexy encounter. Lisa also says the couple shared a follow-up rendezvous in a Mumbai hotel room.
Initially, the stewardess, who worked for Qantas, had maintained to her employers that she was the subject of Ralph’s unwelcome advances. But the paper says she told friends a different version of the tale, bragging, "I’ve always fancied him. I just stood up, reached down for his hand and told him to follow me."
Now that’s in-flight service.

Look out, Hollywood: Lindsay Lohan is loose! The, ahem, recovered party girl checked out of L.A.’s swanky Wonderland rehab facility Friday, having completed her 30-day revolving-door stint at the residence. (Her rep says she’ll continue treatment on an outpatient basis.) And in true LiLo fashion, she celebrated by — wait for it — going clubbing.
That very night, La Linds was seen at nightclubs Les Deux and Winston before capping off the night at an after-hours house party. And she wasn’t exactly keeping a low profile: The "Bobby" star raised eyebrows by chatting with hottie singer Justin Timberlake in the Les Deux parking lot.
You’ve got to give the lady credit: With one ruthlessly efficient stroke, she managed to make both her "frenemy" Britney Spears and her arch-nemesis Scarlett Johansson jealous.
That’s our Lindsay! Good to have you back, girlfriend.

Lindsay Lohan wasn’t the only A-lister making time with Justin Timberlake on Friday night. The "SexyBack" singer, who has recently been linked with Jessica Biel as well as Scarlett Johansson, had a warm reunion with his ex-girlfriend Cameron Diaz.
Friday night at the Whiskey Bar in West Hollywood, J.T. was hanging at director Martin Scorsese’s table when, People reports, Cam arrived.
"Cameron never joined their table. She just showed up and Justin got up and started talking to her," a source recalls. They were being very discreet. They weren’t kissing or holding hands or anything, but they were being very friendly."
And yes, the couple left together half an hour later.
Is a reconciliation in the works? Maybe. But somehow, we don’t think Justin is ready to go back to being a one-woman man just yet.
