A Piece Of Britney
As 2007 comes to a close, I wanted to share with you this painting Mouseketeer Britney Spears With Ears by a great new artist Annie Kevans. It's a little exclusive for you all, as I believe this is the first time this picture has been published!
Love her or hate her, Britney was literally everywhere in 2007... including the walls of my living room! I collect art by a number of female artists and was invited in July to visit Annie's studio in London. I'd fallen in love with Annie's recent series of paintings known as the 'Swans', taking inspiration from the bizarre reality TV show The Swan where women were made over thanks to plastic surgery.
But my favourite of all Kevans' paintings are portraits of child stars such as Jodie Foster, Shirley Temple, Christina Aguilera, the Olsen Twins and of course Britney in her Mickey Mouse Club ears. They're just really powerful images, somehow summing up exactly how I feel about the state Britney is in right now...
See more paintings by Annie Kevans after the jump!

'Shirley Temple' by Annie Kevans (2006)
'The Olsen Twins' by Annie Kevans (2006)
Visit: www.anniekevans.com and her page at Wikipedia for more info. Britney Spears' new single 'Piece of Me' is out on 14th January 2008. The brand new 'International Version' of her music video is out now on iTunes or YouTube (where Britney seems noticeably happier than the original edit screened a few weeks ago).
Thanks Rob! I just visited the link, her work is amazing! I like the piece 'Absolute Democracy', even though they are young presidents, they kind of look like 'The Little Rascals'! ^_^

Random thought... when I was in New York last September, a friend of mine emailed me a blog entry by Perez about Tori Amos singing a song for Britney.
I actually found the lyrics to that song really moving and sweet!
I think you can hear it on YouTube still and read the lyrics under the 'About This Video' section in the top right corner: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YAr7fRgMtZ8
