DNA Testing – The Secrets of Celebrity


Is DNA testing able to reveal the secret of success? Ever since Britney Spears shaved her head, the internet has gone slightly crazy with websites being set up to sell the locks of hair online. Of course, only DNA testing would reveal if the hair really came from Brittney or not. But the notion that people could place value in celebrity hair shows how much enthral society is to fame and celebrity.

DNA Testing – Is Britney’s Hair Real

DNA testing can be used to confirm if the hair is real, but to carry out a DNA test can be an expensive process. Many dozens of auctions have gone online with offers also posted on the EBay auction site for the hair, all of them claiming to be genuine – which would suggest Britney had a heck of a lot of hair. Of course, the majority of theses are scams as there was only so much hair that could have been salvaged from Esther Tognozzi’s hairdressing salon in LA where Brittney shaved off all her hair in a mad moment.

DNA Testing On $1 Million Hair

One American news channel reported that one of the online sellers had offered DNA testing on the hair that they were selling – but the buyer had to pay for the DNA test to be carried out.  Amazingly one seller had received several bids, one of which was over the $1million mark. Even the alleged clippers she used to cut her hair off were for sale. One website dedicated to selling her hair stated: “This is an opportunity of a lifetime. You can be the proud owner of Britney Spears’ hair…”

Celebrity DNA

The idea that celebrity hair may be so valuable may seem peculiar, but fans of celebrities throughout the decades have gone to extreme lengths to see, touch or grab something of their favoured celebrity. DNA testing is able to confirm a person’s genetic make-up, reveal their ancestry or be used in by paternity tests to establish parenthood. But the notion that a bit of celebrity hair can unlock the secrets of celebrity seems to have bewitched many of Britney’s fans. One of the dedicated Britney websites that were selling her locks said: “Britney's DNA could be priceless - if you want a messed up crazy kid that can sing and dance.

DNA Testing Illegal in UK

But if you are one of those scammers hoping to make some easy money from celebrity DNA, it is actually illegal in the UK to take a sample of someone’s DNA for DNA testing or analysis without their absolute consent. The Human Tissues Act has been designed to regulate the use of human body parts, tissues or organs. Everyone from those trying to cash in on making money from celebrity DNA to medical scientists working on diseased tissues must have consent to take a sample of someone’s DNA for analysis testing.
