Bad hair day? Britney Spears hides her lank locks under a shawl

Britney Spears appeared unusually camera shy as she arrived at LAX airport yesterday.

Looking pale and tired, the 26-year-old singer left the airport with a white shawl draped over her long blonde locks. Perhaps was trying to cover her rather greasy-looking hair.

It was a far cry from how she had looked just the night before when she went to dinner at Soho House in New York, looking fantastic in an electric blue dress.

But if she was hoping the new shawl, by New York label Minnie Rose, would prevent her from being recognised she was sadly mistaken as she was greeted by a wall of photographers as she left the terminal. (We assume the shawl was new as the label is still on.)

It's no surprise really that Britney's looking a little bit pooped. She's been staying in New York since Sunday where she has been promoting her new single Womanizer.

While in the Big Apple, she also saw a Broadway show called The Heights, visited several stores and dropped into a school in The Bronx where she donated a $10,000 (£5,000) cheque to its music programme and signed autographs for delighted pupils.

Over the last few days, the mum-of-two looked healthy and groomed, especially on Wednesday night when she dined out at Soho House in a stunning blue dress.

But it all must have taken its toll because when she arrived at JFK on Thursday to catch her flight back home to LA she looked worn out.

No wonder she wanted to go undercover when she touched down at LAX.
