Fallen pop princess Britney Spears has been called many things this year as she has bounced in and out of rehab, attacked paparazzi with an umbrella and shaken her stuff on MTV's Video Music Awards.

No doubt, Spears has been a real piece of work. Now, she is more than 50 pieces of art at a Hollywood gallery.

Fenton Bailey and Randy Barbatos – makers of the documentary "The Eyes of Tammy Faye" about former televangelist Tammy Faye Bakker Messner as well as other films exploring fame – gathered paintings, sculpture and other work for "Just Britney," which opened at their gallery on Friday.

"We reached out to a number of artists and found Britney is such a polarising character these days," said Steven Corfe, a co-curator of the show with Thairin Smothers.
