A variety of oversized spectacles are the latest fashion pop star Britney Spears, the Daily Mail reports.
She was seen in metal frames during a recent gig in Australia and has also been spotted wearing oversized black-framed lenses, along with a trilby hat and checked shirt.
The news provider likened her to Brains - the exceedingly clever scientist from TV show Thunderbirds.
Spears finished her Circus tour last month - which MTV has nominated her as woman of the year for - and she has since been taking some down time.
Earlier in the week she was criticised for miming by fellow singer Pink who spoke to Women"s Health.
She said: "I"m not taking anything away from Britney because I really like her a lot, but I would never go to a show where the person was lip-synching."
Former X Factor contestant, JLS"s Oritse recently told the Sun about how he used to get teased at school for wearing glasses.
