Whether it's the way they styled her hair (wig?) or a bad Photoshop job, Brit Brit just doesn't look quite like herself. We actually had to do a double take to make sure it was her.
Which is a shame because in the accompanying interview we actually learned a lot of interesting things about the real Britney Spears. Like for instance, how she feels about socks.
"I never wear socks. I hate socks."
And asked what sets her fiance Jason Trawick apart from former flames, Spears says, "He was sweet. He says he doesn’t mind that I sit around in sweats all the time." True romance!

Update: Lucky has responded to readers, erm, mixed reviews of their Britney cover.
"Thank you all for sharing your thoughts on our cover! As always, we will share with our team and we're sorry to have let some of you down."
