Britney Rocks a Bikini on Shape Mag and Sets the Clock Back to 2001Sarah Bernard
It hasn’t been the easiest year for Brit. She split with fiancé Jason Trawick. She was maybe/maybe not fired from “The X Factor.” She flashed a few photographers at her son’s soccer game the other day. We were wondering if the pink wig was about to appear.
But as the June cover of Shape magazine proves, Britney is looking pretty well, thank you. And a lot like the Britney we know and love from her ‘Slave 4 You’ days which were more than 10 years ago, by the way.
On the cover she is wearing a white bikini. White! Who looks good in that? A 31-year-old mother of two, that’s who. Detractors can say all they want. Add they will. But I am rooting for her. She has a new boyfriend. A “regular” guy, the tabloids say. Not a former agent or creepy photographer. She’s on Nutrisystem and working out like a fiend with an intense cardio and yoga regimen.
The workouts are likely in preparation for her new Vegas gig. Just like Cher, Celine and Bette (!) she’s going to start a Vegas residency this Fall. After a few months of rehearsals, she’ll reportedly be headlining shows at Planet Hollywood in November. If they’re smart, they’ll start ticket sales right about now.
What do you think of Britney’s cover look? I’d love to know. @SarahNBernard
