What Did You Do For Presidents' Weekend, Britney Spears?
In case you spent your entire weekend on an iced-in JetBlue plane, you may have missed the news that pop star-turned-single mom Britney Spears did something you thought no A-lister would be caught doing: She flew coach from Miami to L.A.! Oh, yeah, and when she got there she decided to shave her head and get two tattoos. But seriously, who flies coach anymore?
If you've been recently divorced and feel like you can't stay in, even in rehab, walk in Brit-Brit's footsteps with a one-way ticket from Miami to Los Angeles on American Airlines (seven non-stops daily). Spears went to Esther's Hair Cutting Studio in Tarzana (18360 Ventura Blvd.), which normally would charge $20 for the full monty but refused to actually do the cutting for her (though they did hand her the scissors and razor). The salon is now charging $200 for the Brit Buzz Special, but there's a Great Clips three miles away in Van Nuys (in Saticoy Plaza, 17276 Saticoy Street).
From there it's only a hop, skip and a jump to Body and Soul Tattoo and Piercing in Sherman Oaks (14522 1/2 Ventura Blvd.), open till 10 p.m. Monday through Thursday, till midnight Friday and Saturday and till 9 p.m. on Sunday. Spears' tattoos, a cross on her hip and lips on her wrist, set her back $80 -- not including the $7.30 bottle of Nyquil she reportedly had spilled on her purse. (We like the cherry flavor.) Just don't try to bring the bottle through airport security.
