People are still looking for excuses as to why Britney Spears’ MTV Video Music Awards performance was so bad, and now they’re blaming her hair. Apparently Britney and her hair dresser Ken Paves (also Jessica Simpson’s hair dresser) had “creative differences” backstage right before Britney was scheduled to perform and Paves ended up walking out on her. Us reports:

Spears, 25, ended up doing her own hair after abruptly dismissing Pavés (Jessica Simpson’s go-to glam guy) just 30 minutes before she took the stage. “Ken was in the middle of doing her hair, and she just said, “You’re really annoying me! Get out,” says the source.

Pavés gave Us a more polite version: “I did go to Las Vegas to work with Britney. However, once there, I made the professional decision not to do her hair for the VMAs.

But a second backstage staffer gives a different account. “There were creative differences with the hair guy and he left. That was stressful.”

Not only that, Vegas Confidential claims Britney wanted to have brown hair but her managers forced her to wear blonde extensions from Jessica Simpson’s Hair-u-Wear line. Britney even paid her own stylist $10,000 to make the trip to Vegas so she could go brown, but her handlers said “no way.” So there you have it. If it wasn’t Sarah Silverman’s jokes or Britney’s broken heel, it was her hair. God, what’s next? Tomorrow she’ll claim she performed so poorly because she saw a picture of a scary dog.
