Ladies and gentlemen, we have pop cultural situation that needs to be addressed! Britney Spears is addicted to short sleeve turtlenecks and it’s time for an intervention.
Here in the MTV Newsroom, we’re a bunch of Britney stans; we organize entire birthday-related tournaments in her honor, contact experts to tell us about her boyfriend’s abs and gave her latest album nothing but love. But even we have limits and a line in the sand has to be drawn somewhere and we’re pretty sure we’ve figured out where that threshold is.
We first noticed Britney’s interest in keeping it wintery up top and summery on her stems when she posted a picture of her engagement ring to Twitter earlier this month. One of our colleagues pointed out that Spears “always wears short sleeve turtlenecks” and we were baffled; we’d never noticed that it was a thing she was known for. That stuck with us though, and in just about every picture of the Femme Fatale diva to surface since, we’ve noticed she is sporting one.
It’s not that she looks bad or anything … but, you know, it’s maybe not the most fashionable choice for one of the biggest pop stars in the world to be sporting in her off time. Just sayin’!
