The secret behind Britney Spears new dark-haired look has been revealed - her mother was bored of her being blonde.

The sexy singer stunned fans after being snapped by photographers last month (APR03) sporting a new brunette bob hairstyle.

And the pop princess' mum LYNNE confesses she encouraged Britney to revamp her look - to give her some "extra spunk".

She says, "We love it! Some of you must wonder why - it's simple. She was tired of the same look. Actually, I was the one complaining about having the same look.

"A new look seems to give you extra spunk and energy."
