Help For Britney Spears

  • B2B Marcom

  • As we all know, Britney Spears could use a little help. Here's what I am talking about:

    • In and out of rehab: I've got nothing to offer.
    • Stalkarazzi: I'm useless on this one. Even my own co-workers don't know where I am some of the time (and don't care).
    • Man trouble: Again, nothing. Though I have been happily married to the same wonderful woman for over 24 years!
    • Hasn't had a hit in years: I can play guitar and piano - both badly. Sorry.
    • Problems raising her kid: Getting warmer. I've raised two wonderful young men.
    • Shaved head: Aha! Now we're talking.

    Finally, a chance to lend Britney a hand. Even though my style is minimal care, minimal maintenance, I've got a few critical guides to keep everything - ahem - smooth. OK - here's what I've got for the girl:

    1) Determine exactly what look you're going for and stick with it. In my case, I am clean-shaven. That means no two-day stubble - ever. Once the commitment has been made, you've got to commit.

    2) ALWAYS use a very sharp razor. The duller the blade, the more likely you are to cut yourself. I imagine she may be tempted to use one razor for ALL her shaving (and I won't go there). That's a danger. Be sure to keep an eye on the blade sharpness and replace it frequently.

    3) Pay attention while shaving. A loss of focus, even for a second, could lead to the dreaded "head slice". This occurs when you take your eyes off the prize and become distracted. If that razor begins to slide sideways (even slightly) you could end up with a slice that even Tiger Woods can't correct.

    There you are - Rick Short's advice for Britney Spears. No, it's not B2B marcom, but it doesn't ALWAYS have to be about the Benjamins. Sometimes we just like to reach out and lend a helpful hand.
