Britney Spears Gets Arty

Betsy Waldman / September 13, 2008

Britney Spears really wants folks to take her MTV VMAs-winning hit “Piece of Me” literally.

A 5-by-4 foot portrait of the back-on-track pop star is being auctioned on eBay to raise money for the Promises Foundation, which provides assistance for low-income mothers and their children.

Daniel Maltzman is the artist who did the oil painting. And Brit even autographed it!

The auction ends Saturday, September 20.
