While wowing on Star Search at age 10, appearing on Disney’s The Mickey Mouse Club at age 11, and bursting onto the pop scene with “Baby One More Time” in 1998 at age 16, fans witnessed Britney Spears transform from an adorable teenage girl into a beautiful woman. Yet now the pop princess claims she hasn’t felt so good since her childhood.
She revealed in an Instagram post on May 18 that she was so insecure that she couldn’t pull off wearing her hair without hair, and that her teeth made her look like an “ugly duckling.” Brit also said that a modeling agency said she “wasn’t pretty enough” to operate for them in her grade years.
The 38-year-old posted a selfie on Instagram with her blonde hair pulled up in a high ponytail, as fine hair wisps float down over her forehead. “I know I need bangs!!!!! Who would have thought bangs could make you look waaaaay younger?!?!” Britney stated in the caption.
“I stopped having bangs in the 3rd grade and I remember like it was yesterday….it was such a big deal to expose my forehead….only pretty people in the south could do that and I never felt pretty enough to pull it off. All the beauty pageant girls did it but I never felt beauty pageants were my thing,” she added.
“I had bad teeth and felt like an ugly duckling. I met with a modeling agency but I wasn’t pretty enough so I went home and said, ‘maybe I can be like the older girls and show my forehead!!!!’ I did and it looked sooooo bad but I thought I was gorgeous!!!! I think I knew it didn’t look good but I did it because I thought it made me cool….and I’ve pretty much had it like that ever since!!!!” Britney expressed.
She appears to be being a bit hard on herself because Britney did not have “bad” teeth from her childhood results videos. And her pearly white smile has been filmed star quality ever since Britney became world-famous as a youngster.
“People choose different ways to protect themselves….when I pull my bangs in front of my head I feel like I’m protected…almost like I’m in 3rd grade again!!!”, Brit concluded.
Fortunately, her fans were there to remind the singing sensation that no matter how she wears her makeup, she’s a knockout. her fans pour in with positive comments after this and filled her comment section with positivity. Also, Britney should see good in herself and flaunt her flaws, as nothing is perfect in the world.
