About a month ago I wrote a post called “Forecasting Britney”: signs to look for, now that she’s single again, that… you know. An astute reader wrote in immediately after positing that:

All that, plus if she goes brown, we are in trouble.


Here’s Britney at the Elton John Oscar party last night and she’s brown.

Some of you have written to say that she looks good. We are fighting here. That skin colour is not good. If anything she looks like her mother. That’s not to say it’s imminent but brown Britney, historically, has not been the most …predictable Britney, is the best way to say it.
