To post this clip or not post IS the question!
Pure disappointment but can she bounce back or simply give her musical career a rest.
Late '90s pop starlet Britney Spears appeared out of sync and listless as she performed her comeback single, "Gimme More" at the MTV Video Music Awards for many reasons.
“”She didn’t even get to Las Vegas until 4:30 p.m. It was ridiculous . . . The production people at MTV were freaking out . . . Nobody can tell Britney what to do anymore. No one can control her. She is a mess,” a source tells Page Six.
Brit found out about Sarah Silverman’s crappy line about Britney’s babies just moments before she took the stage to perform “Gimme More.” Needless to say, Britney was PISSED! [via X17 Online]
COMMON: “It was very disappointing. I feel like she didn’t want to be there. I have great compassion for her, and I don’t think it’s necessarily over for her. If she comes back with something potent and vibrant, she could bounce back.”
KANYE WEST: “I have no words.” Then he wondered aloud, “Do you think they’ll give her another chance?"He then turned to a friend and loudly changed the subject by asking, “So, how do you think the Chicago Bears are going to do in the new season?”
ASHANTI: When asked what she thought, laughed, rolled her eyes and walked away, then her publicist stepped in and said, “No comment.”
50 CENT: He called Brit's performance a "highlight," saying "I told you outside, she was gonna be the hottest thing, and she did it, she worked it out. Yeah, she had a big production, things started coming out of the sky." But then he changed the subject to another performer: "Chris brown was hot too, he jumped from table to table."
NICOLE SCHERZINGER: "It's hard because being an artist like myself, I don't like it when I'm not in front of the house and I can't hear the monitors properly. ... I dunno, it was cool, I was just sending her good vibes the whole time."
BRITNEY ON BRITNEY: She was seen in a hallway, was smiling and very casual. She had on a white T-shirt and Fedora and was just saying, “Thank you” to people. When Will asked how she thought the performance went, she answered: “Good. Thank you.” [SOURCE]
Flashback performance of what I think are her best VMA performances:
"Slave 4 U"
Bottom line: Britney got what she was aiming for--she's the talk of this year's VMAs. Oh and she flashed the paparazzi yet again. Britney, things that make me go hmmm....
