Britney Spears Is A Complete & Utter Trainwreck

// September 10th, 2007

…and yet, somehow I can’t look away!!!

Mama Spears made her “comeback” at the MTV VMAs last night & it was a total disaster. Not only did she sport a bit of a belly, but she basically walked around the stage - almost tripping a few times - didn’t really dance, and didn’t even try to sell her horrible lip-synching, which was more like lip-talking. She basically looked like a bored stripper who’s not looking for many tips.

As Reuters put it:

Britney Spears launched her highly anticipated comeback at the MTV Video Music Awards on Sunday, drawing ridicule by dressing up as a stripper and miming her new single.

Other music stars in attendance like Fitty Cent, Chris Brown, Diddy, etc. just stared in bewilderment at the trainwreck, while Rihanna & her friend were literally spotted laughing at the spectacle:

The sad thing is that some of Britney’s new songs (which are featured on Perez Hilton) are actually pretty good, but that brings us to the real problem of the icon that is Britney Spears: she’s a fabrication of the modern music industry. Her vocals are probably dubbed & the one thing she was actually good at - performing on stage - she’s no longer putting any effort into. After tonight, this comeback of hers is going to get even more interesting as the reality & image of Britney collide at full force.

…and yet, somehow I can’t look away!!!

The VMAs were not all bad though. Justin Timberlake called out MTV on 2 separate occasions, demanding that they play more music videos instead of the reality TV garbage (some of which, like The Hills, which I love!) that litters the network today. The Fantasy Suite parties & performances were a nice touch, although really just if you were there in Vegas partying it up, instead of catching little moments of them on TV.

Here are my personal highlights from the show:


Chris Brown & Rihanna: Wall to Wall / Billie Jean / Umbrella / Kiss Kiss

Soulja Boy: Crank Dat

Foo Fighters & Cee-Lo: Darling Nikki

Kanye West & T-Pain: The Good Life

Alicia Keys: No One / Freedom
