Look at this most recent picture of her.

She's how old... 31? 32? She looks late 40s here!

What other celebrities do you think are not ageing well?

I don't agree that she looks late 40's. I think it's because she started out so young that the way we perceive her to look now is not what she would like in reality. I think she looks her age.

I don't think that's true. By that logic, you should feel the same about your parents and everyone else you've known for a substantial amount of years.

Look at artists like Kylie and Mariah Carey... They still look very good for their age, despite being known to us before they even hit 20. Not everyone ages well, it's not Britney's fault. It's a combination of lifestyle and genes.

She looks iffy because she's trying to look young.
I'm sure she'd be more attractive with the right [toned down] make up.

So what? People age (including you OP). Get over it.

Perhaps we should be judging people on their character and accomplishments rather than what creams/surgery they happen to be able to afford to buy.

Ridiculous and nasty thread.

I hope people judge the OP in the same shallow way when meeting her/him. Let's see your face then.....

I think sometimes, celebs are damned if they do - and damned if they don't. Britney still looks unwell to me - generally, I mean - there's a coldness behind the eyes. She's been through a helluva lot at a young age. At least she hasn't had stacks of surgery.

Its probably not the most flattering of photos, and she does have way too much makeup on, but we all get older, sadly. Since I hit my forties piled on the weight and lines are appearing and I have always been size 10, but hey we are who we are I guess!

Oh calm down, it's not like I'm laughing incessantly at her and her bad looks, I was just making an observation. If anything it's because I think she looks ill. I think she looks unwell whenever I watch US X Factor or see her in press photos, she looks tired and worn. And Britney, a well known performer, will always be judged partly on her appearance. She's a superstar, it's just the natural order of things.

I think Kylie looks really strange. She's clearly had loads of work done. If her eyebrow gets any higher she'll be tying it up with her hair scrunchie.

Britney I agree doesn't look great in that pic but she's far more natural.

Which should we champion, really?

On X Factor she looks her age - early 30s I think, I think her styling ages her - too blonde and plastered with make up that looks a bit aging.
But I think its a bit harsh to judge her appearance - shes had mental health problems and for some people severe mental illness can take a toll on their appearance, especially if you havent been looking after yourself properly for a long time - aspects like stress, lack of sleep etc can have an impact on well-being both mentally and physically.

This basically.

Britney is quite clearly not back to full health and I'd question the morals of Simon and co who thought it was a good idea to wheel her out a star turn on X Factor USA.

I agree that Britney's not quite right still. I don't think that makes her look a certain age or anything, I think she just looks like she's had a hard time and I don't think she's really recovered. She doesn't seem quite all there when she's talking. On the clips I've seen from X Factor US she tends to just say something positive and bland and she looks a bit rabbit-in-the-headlights or as if she's just not sure what to say but has a stock response.

In terms of people who look older... to be honest, I think it's hard to pinpoint celebs. Most of them have had work done, and/or have people making them look beautiful and keeping them fit etc. Most of them look younger.

Perez Hilton has some ideas but I don't really agree with them:

Actually there are loads of young kids who look older than they are. Like teenagers who look like they are about 25, probably due to how they are dressed and made up.

Many mood stabilisers have been shown to accelerate aging - lithium, antidepressants etc all take their toll, add to that her years of 'self medicating' and the result ain't pretty.

the cast of TOWIE are the prime offenders at this. They're all early 20's but look mid 30's with the slap, botox and sunbed abuse

I think so. If the crystal meth rumours are true, then that is very ageing.

I agree. I don't think she looks in her late 40s!! Britney either looks really good, or really bad. Depends what day you catch her on lol

Britney looks absolutely shattered. She looks like she could do with a months worth of sleep which, I'd imagine, is pretty hard as she's a mother of two young boys.

She's a multi-millionaire, she can afford a couple of nannies.

Problem is, I don't think she is normal anymore, she's dead in the eyes. Yes, she needs rest, lots of it.

Is it just me or does she have a look of Sly Stallone in the photo in the OP?

Exactly what I was going to say. If anything, it says more about the 'observer'.

And then there would be a thread saying she doesn't want to look after her own Children. It's a circle.
