Britney Spears
Britney Spears just chopped off her luscious locks for the summer.

In a new picture the "Baby One More TIme" singer uploaded to Instagram on Tuesday night, she's rocking an entirely new 'do. It's very short, and straight, and has plenty of bangs. "My new haircut!," Britney captioned the pic, seen below.

It's a far cry from how the former teen idol has looked recently. Before chopping it all off, Britney was sporting much longer, wavier locks. Originally, she cut it all off for a chic bob back in September, but since then, the star's been supplanting her 'do with some hair extensions (on...

The lead single off of NSYNC's third and final album Celebrity back in 2001 was called "Pop". From the start, it seemed like even the boy band's biggest star knew the era that had made NSYNC one of the biggest powerhouses in music was coming to an end.

"Sick and tired of hearing all these people talk about," sang lead singer Justin Timberlake, "What's the deal with this pop life and when's it gonna fade out?"

While the song itself used some wishful thinking in its response to that question, the real answer was: in about a year.
