rex_822870m.jpgBlimey. Britney knows how to reinvent herself doesn't she? How the devil did she go from being "slightly unhinged" bald lady, to brilliant fabulous pop starlet again? How did that happen?

I'm impressed. Really impressed. Her hair might be even shinier now than it was before. Shiny hair and new album? Who's the lady behind her PR?

Even other pop comeback queens didn't sink quite as low as Britney. (Remember Kylie and Confide In Me? That wasn't very good now, was it?) Madonna has reinvented herself every week for the whole of her career. But they never had the "incident" like Britney did. They just made occasionally shit music.

Twelve months ago, people were taking bets on when Britney would die. She was in that much of a downward spiral.

Now, she's got her own episode of the X-Factor (career highlight, no?) and her new album, Circus, is out next week (like you didn't know that already). But you know what else? She looks happy. She's got that healthy sparkly thing going on. And everyone is well on their way to forgetting about the crazy. Until I brought it up a second ago anyway.

Seriously, I've never been a huge Britney fan. But by golly she's turned herself around sharpish and that deserves shouting about. I might even watch the X-Factor this Saturday.

Are you just as impressed as I am? Tell me what you think in the comments!
