Well she’s gone and done it, and now it can’t be undone. Britney’s premature comeback at the MTV Video Music Awards in Las Vegas was lacklustre at best, and showcased none of charisma or star quality that we know she has (or used to have).
Britney looked nervous as she performed her new single Gimme More surrounded by scantily-clad female dancers writhing on stripper poles, and she got up close and personal with about a dozen leather-clad male dancers in the raunchy routine. Her dance moves weren’t sharp, her lip-synching was seriously out of time and her blonde hair extensions seemed to be bothering her – Britney kept dropping the dance moves to run her fingers nervously through her hair. I wouldn’t go as far as saying she embarrassed herself – it could have been far worse, after all – but it wasn’t the triumphant comeback it should have been. Watch Britney’s performance
Reviews of the performance have been brutal – many reports have even claimed Britney was out of shape and looked chubby in her jewel-encrusted bikini. I thought the mum-of-two looked great – I just wish she’d have taken her time and prepared a comeback that had knocked all our socks off. I’m not sure how Britney’s going to live this one down.
What do you think – has Britney blown it? Or does what happens in Vegas, stay in Vegas? Leave a comment below.
