Jessica Simpson’s Hair Burner Dumped Britney

September 12th, 2007 // 21 Comments

Ken Paves is Jessica Simpson’s hair Yoda. Yeah, it’s his fault. Anyway, he was brought in to try to make Britney look somewhat presentable. She was difficult and didn’t trust a hair queen to do her right. Another sign of dementia. Anyway, he split. You’re shut off, Brit!

Weeks before the awards show, “Britney had requested his two female assistants [to do her extensions] since she prefers women around her,” and was disappointed when Paves himself arrived, says a Spears source. The stylist soon left, taking his hair with him.

“He bailed,” says the source. Says Paves’s rep: “Ken made the professional decision not to do her hair for the VMAs.”

God, weavemasters have reps! She made a bad, bad decision. Once the head weavemaster puts you on the list, the rest follow suit. She’s going to have to trot her crazy ass down to Fantastic Sam’s! Brit didn’t think much of her look. Keep reading.

“She was also able to see video of herself throughout the auditorium,” a backstage source tells Us Weekly. “She flipped out. She came running off the stage, yelling ‘Oh, my God, I looked like a fat pig! I looked like a fat pig!’ She was inconsolable.”

Well, take the corset advice next time! Or hold back on the Mint Three Musketeers. God, I can’t wait to try those.

    A waist IS a terrible thing to mind.

    Ride Lo

    I don’t think she looks fat; just stupid, in a daze, and with really bad hair.

  3. Not a Spears Fan

    Let’s get one thing straight. Spears looked indifferent to her whole disposition and possibly drugged, but SHE DID NOT LOOK FAT.

    I cannot believe people are calling her fat. Ridiculous.

  4. Britney Said

    I told y’all I only let Truvy give me good hayer!

    we’re country

    I definitely saw something wrong with Britney’s performance (and the outfit she chose to wear), but what the hell was wrong with her hair and her body? I thought she looked cute and healthy. Could she drop 5 pounds? Sure. But who couldn’t stand to lose 5 to 10??? At least she’s human.

  6. HELL YES!!!

    T-bone, right on. She wasn’t fat, just not into her gig. Hope she gets her shit together, for herself & her boys.

    phew! it’s good to see people agreeing that she isn’t fat. i was beginning to wonder if my eyes were deceiving me when i heard so many people call her a whale!

    She’s far from fat–actually looks pretty damn good considering she had two kids in two years–but the outfit was tacky and was too small for her. There’s a difference between sexy and sleazy. She has dreadful taste in clothes. Men, too, but that’s another story.

    That being said, she needs to get her act together–big time. She needs all kinds of help. I hope she gets it.

    oh yes she did look fat. look at pics of her from past vma’s. she was slim, toned and energetic.
    now she just looks sloppy, chubby and miserable.

    i blame k-fed. he ruined my idol.

  10. Sara

    the girl isnt fat but she just looked way out of shape she needs to work on her condition,new hair stylist and needs to get rid of her clothes and the people who are behind the scenes they tell this girl crap !!!!

  11. *Sigh*

    MardiGras, I totally agree. She’s not fat, but the outfit made her look fat. Who’s to blame for that? No, it’s not Sarah Silverman or whoever else homegirl is blaming. I wish I was as small as her (but I wouldn’t be stupid enough to leave the house with that mess she was wearing). She just really needs to understand that it’s not 1997 anymore and dress appropriately. She would have looked great if she had worn clothes that fit. She’s still pretty in the face. Hopefully she can find another career, but her performing days are definitely over (and not a minute too soon, all this girl has ever been is dancing eye candy and she can’t even dance anymore, so she’s pretty much screwed). She should leave the bad off-key singing and sex kitten image to Rihanna and call it a day.

    And nobody better challenge my Rihanna comment, you know that girl can’t sing to save her life!

    She isn’t fat but the outfit she chose did not flatter her at all. I’m glad her hair was addressed here, because i was wondering why she was wearing what looks like the same hair extensions she’s had in for months. I think she should lose the fake hair and rock a pixie cut, and stop trying to cover up what we all know is underneath there.

  13. Right on, MardiGras. She hardly looked fat. She squeezed a healthy looking body into itty-bitty clothes that were intensely unflattering.

  14. Slim

    She Did Not Look Fat. Her Stomach Looked Normal. Its All You Fucking Bloggers Blowing Up The Pictures To Make Her Look Bigger. She’s A Human Being. Leave Her Alone.

    Fat? No.

    For a woman who recently had two babies, she looks great. But she wasn’t onstage trying to be a great looking momma. She was onstage trying to revitalize a career that has been rocked with rumors and innuendos and even photos that suggest she ain’t what she used to be. She was onstage to prove all those rumors wrong.

    OH BOY! OH LORDY! OMG!

    Britney is likely 40 pounds heavier than her fighting weight she started at when she sang “Baby Baby” and at least 30 pounds heavier than in the prime of her career. Is this the comeback performance she wanted? I doubt it. She would have been better off had she just canceled at the last minute.

    To paraphrase Dean Werner from Animal House, “Fat, drunk and lazy is no way to perform on the VMAs.”

    I’m curious — did Britney call this her big “COMEBACK” performance, or did MTV market it as such, and we all went along with it? All of the hype wasn’t actually Britney-made. It was MTV-made and gossip-tabloid-made.
    It’s not like this is HER LAST opportunity to prove herself. Plain and simple, people are interested in her, for better or for worse. So she’ll be back.

    slim for having 2 kids??
    oh god. that is no excuse.
    i have a child and when he was 4 months old i was in a size smaller than i was pre-pregnancy.
    Quit making excuses for her and just face the fact that she needs to lose 50 lbs if she wants to make a comeback.

    Gina
    Just because you’re an anorexic beeeyotch doesn’t mean everyone else wants to be. Quit tooting your own eating disorder horn idiot. if Britney lost 50 pounds she’d be in the hospital, you dumb anorexia promoting ho!

    right on to everyone who agrees that she is NOT fat! she may have been heavier than before, but she still looks very good. her clothes were just toooo tight! even the smallest person looks bad in too-tight clothes. but her hair was shit. ew ew shit-tastic. i could’ve done better myself. and you could tell she just didnt have the energy that the old britt had. im sure the jokes that sarah silverman made did effect her. as a mother myself, i would have never performed that night, i would have whooped sara’s ASS! i have never considered myself a “fan”, of britt but i did like some of her old songs. and gimme more is pretty addictive. people need to just leave her alone and let her live her life. these poor celebrities cant even take a shit without someone snapping photos. i would be wayyyy more fucked up than britt if i had to live her life.

    Ken Paves is the greatest — an amazing stylist. Truly, truly amazing. I don’t know if you heard, but he has a new hair care line out … Healthy Hair. It’s at HSN (I know, weird) … that’s where he sells all those hair extensions with Jessica. Anyhow, here’s where to check his new hair care line.
