Britney Spears All Cleaned Up, Really?

It's not that I'm not a Britney Spears fan, but I'll never believe that the 27-year-old queen of the lowriders would clean up so well - even for the cover of December's Glamour magazine. There is something about the songstress of Oops I Did it Again fame that is inherently trashy. You know, kind of like Lil Kim, or Foxy Brown or even Amy Winehouse. This clean angelic I'm no longer on drugs and look, I let my hair grow back image, is not flying with me. What do you think? Are you looking forward to Britney's new album? Is this new look authentic? Would you even want the Spears look? Will she ever be good at being good in your eyes?

It's not that I'm not a Britney Spears fan, but I'll never believe that the 27-year-old queen of the lowriders would clean up so well - even for the cover of December's Glamour magazine.  There is something about the songstress of Oops I Did it Again fame that is inherently trashy.

About this blog

I’m a Libra so I’m all about pretty things. We of the scales sign know what we like, and our standards are high.

So I can’t help but love fashion – one day I will get that Diane von Furstenberg wrap and those Christian Louboutin shoes.

And fragrances? My favorite right now is Chanel Mademoiselle. As for makeup, can we say MAC?

So let’s thank the Greek goddess of beauty, Aphrodite, that a true fashionista can find everything she needs right here in Philly.

I’ve covered fashion here for six years, and I have traveled to New York, Los Angeles and Paris to write about local and national designers. Let me tell you, there is no place where people wear midnight Eagles green or Phillies red with such wild abandon as they do on the west side of the Ben Franklin Bridge.

Sound familiar? This blog is for you.
