Britney Spears breaks her silence and this time she shouts loud. The troubled and much-publicized singer has, through her lawyers, asked Florida radio station Clear Channel's WFLZ/Tampa to take down billboards promoting its MJ Morning Show, showing her baldhead as part of it.

The billboards, featured three identical paparazzi photo of bald and bothered-looking Britney next to radio station WFLZ's logo and a picture of talk show host Todd Schnitt, first appeared in May. Along the top of each picture run the logos: "Total Nut Jobs", "Shock Therapy" and "Certifiable".

A spokeswoman for Clear Channel Communications, which owns WFLZ, said it had received a letter from law firm Lavely & Singer dated June 14th. It is said in the letter, "Clear Channel was already exposed to substantial liability for its offensive, unauthorized commercial exploitation of my client's photograph on the billboards. Once again, we demand the immediate removal of the billboards, confirmed by documentary evidence and verified under penalty of perjury".

And while Schnitt is "not happy" with Clear Channel pulling down the billboards, Britney also demands "an inventory of all Clear Channel billboards in any location containing [Spears'] photo... If Clear Channel continues to ignore the reasonable demands being made on [Spears'] behalf... it does so at its peril."

In other Britney news, the singer is working on her musical comeback, reportedly working on a fifth album.
