Lindsay Lohan’s current troubles and Britney Spears’ infamous breakdown are so eerily similar, it’s a wonder Lilo hasn’t shaved her head. Fox News lists seven reasons La Lohan is the new Brit:

  1. The ick factor: Britney started sporting ratty hair during her time of trouble; Lindsay's once-gorgeous locks are in similar need of shampoo.
  2. Weird photo ops: Britney was often photographed crying or stripping…now Lindsay is snapped falling, or with white powder puffing from her feet.

  1. Soda mania: Brit was often seen carrying an orange soda; for LiLo, it’s Coca-Cola.
  2. Shopping overload: Before her eventual comeback, Britney spent almost a year doing nothing but shopping. Now, Lindsay is doing the same thing—and maybe hoarding, too.
  3. Quick change artists: Britney often walked into a store and exited wearing an entirely different outfit; these days, ditto for LiLo.
