Britney Spears would like to remind you that there’s another Queen B in pop music, and she knows how to get people buzzing on social media too. The star’s been strategically leaking behind-the-scenes images from her upcoming Britney Jean special on E!, including a sexy two-piece shot and a personal photo that made us go (record scratch) about her hair.

That’s because in the photo, which shows Spears pensively sitting down to write, her hair looks different than we’ve seen it in a while. Ordinarily she sports a spun-gold hue with dark roots and butterscotch highlights, but in the still from the documentary, her hair is all one color: a light, bright platinum, from roots to topknot.

We don’t know if this was a temporary fix for a photoshoot, a hair phase we somehow missed or just the magic of digital editing, but we love the lighter hue on her. We can’t wait to check out the documentary to find out why she was rocking the new look, but in the meantime, let’s discuss. Should she keep her hair this color, or do you like your Spears style a little more ombré?
