Britney Spears a Complete Disaster on MTV VMAs
September 9, 2007 by Kath Skerry
OH. MY. GOD. Britney Spears may never come back from this. I just watched her MUCH-hyped opening number of tonight’s MTV VMAs, and the girl has lost it. Yes, of course she’s lost her mind (we knew this when she married her first husband), but sadly Britney has lost the much needed IT that made her the mega-star she once was (back before cheating on Timberlake, marrying K-Fed, the babies, the booze…well you know the story.)
Where to being? Well, first off, she looked nervous as all hell. Nervous like I’ve never seen somebody of her experience and caliber look ever before. Her eyes showed nothing but fear from the opening notes of the song. Once known for her fierce dancing, Britney struggled through her dance routine looking like she was going to forget the choreography at any moment. Her eyes darted around to her backup dancers for help like a little girl in her first dance recital who was afraid she was going to forget all the steps. She looked absolutely lost on the stage. And even in the parts where she was more confident in the choreography, she gave nothing to the dance moves. Britney may have never had the best voice (can she even sing?), but she always knew how to work the dance floor as a distraction, and now it seems that she’s also lost that.
You know the other thing Britney forgot? How to lip synch to her own music. Again, Brit always had a talent for the lip synching, but tonight she was all over the place. Missing words, coming in late to the chorus. What a disaster.
I was talking with some friends earlier in the week about her performance tonight, and I said that she was too much of a mess to stage a comeback at this point in time. I honestly felt that a bad performance now could have a detrimental effect on Britney really restarting her career – and I fear that I’m right. Britney has alway been nothing if not a performer, and if she can’t pull it together on one of the most important nights of her entire career I think she may be done. Maybe she shouldn’t have stayed out partying until 3am this morning and maybe rehearsed a bit (or a lot) more. I don’t know what I was expecting, but I wasn’t expecting what I just saw. I think was her last shot and she blew it. Britney – best of luck to you…may I some day have to eat my words.
And yeah, I didn’t really comment on the outfit, because it was just so wrong.
