Spears has a complicated history with bangs, she revealed on Instagram on May 18. "I stopped having bangs in the 3rd grade and I remember like it was yesterday," the singer wrote at the time. "It was such a big deal to expose my forehead …. only pretty people in the south could do that and I never felt pretty enough to pull it off."

She added that she felt only "beauty pageant girls" could go without bangs, and with "bad teeth" and the feeling she was "an ugly duckling," that didn't feel like somewhere she belonged. "I met with a modeling agency but I wasn’t pretty enough so I went home and said, ‘maybe I can be like the older girls and show my forehead!!!!’ I did and it looked sooooo bad but I thought I was gorgeous !!!!" she recalled.

Spears continued that even though she knew she "didn't look good," she felt like it made her cool, and that moment sparked the look she has had for most of her life. "People choose different ways to protect themselves …. when I pull my bangs in front of my head I feel like I’m protected … almost like I’m in 3rd grade again!!!" she concluded.
