Britney looks like she was a daze. She looked unbalanced like she was about to topple over and her body was not in the right shape for that rhinestone-encrusted bikini. She hardly danced and when she did her beer-gut showed and her lip-syncing was awful. It was difficult to watch. But, a positive, her hair and makeup looked better than it has in a long time.

At this point, I honestly, in my heart, feel bad for the girl.

I saw a clip of the performance...she wasn't even trying.

Posted by: Anonymous | September 10, 2007 8:55 AM | Report abuse

Britney spent a lot of time with her back to the camera, possible because those parts were harder to lip synch, and just looked tired and like she didn't know what she was doing.

As a former dance it reminded me of someone who had missed a few practices and was trying to catch or was half dancing to get the muscle movement, but not over stress the body.

The whole performance was completely without energy.

-Sorry Anonimis, Britney's weave looked a little ratty in the back.

-Sarah Silverman's comment about Britney's kids was uncalled for. When Brit is sobers up, she should kick her a@#.

-MTV should have had the Kid Rock and Tommy Lee throw-down as the opening.

Liz, I wish you were having a chat about the VMAs today because I have so much to talk about:

1. John Norris. I don't even know where to begin. It was like the reanimated corpse, dressed up in drag, of a John Norris I knew 20 years ago. Two scarves: one bedazzled, one from my grandmother's closet.

2. Britney has no business jumping around in a sparkley bikini.

3. How drunk was Jamie Foxx at the end? I felt a little sorry for Jennifer Garner until she announced the award, "And the winner is ... Gym Class Fall Out."

That show was such a train wreck. I wish I could be a fly on the wall in the MTV board room today.

"MTV should have had the Kid Rock and Tommy Lee throw-down as the opening."

They looked like a bunch of sissies being held back. I mean really, they must not have moved very fast on each other to be able to be grabbed by security that quick.

Nonetheless, it was funny. Who thinks Kid Rock would beat Tommy down?

Posted by: Irish girl | September 10, 2007 9:15 AM | Report abuse

I was wondering why Jennifer Gardner was there? I don't blame Jamie Fox for being drunk it was the only way to watch Britney's performance. I loved the look of shock on 50 cents face.

I too felt bad for Jennifer Garner and her awkwardness next to Jamie Foxx. He totally took over their bit and he was f-u-n-n-y! But her little awkward what-the-heck-should-I-do-when-my-copresenter-is-beat-boxing dance was wierd and she came off looking like a amateur. Poor girl. Improv is certainly not her strong suit. They should always send Jamie out by himself or with someone who is good at improv.

oh Britney...I have to admit I only tuned in to the VMA's to see the performance of Britney and stayed awhile so in that regard I see why MTV had her do it. But man. Sad. The rest of the show was so ADD I had to stop watching it though. I know they were trying to reconnect to the internet no-attention span youth but seriously hard to follow.

I couldn't have put it better than KG. I kept watching John Norris wondering when it all went wrong.

Also, who is Lil Mama and what was she wearing?

It's a draw as to who would win in a Tommy vs. Kid throw down. Neither one was fighting the security to break free. However, for keeping the cigar in his mouth I'll back Kid.

OMG. Britney's performance was horrible for words. She looked like she was hungover from her 3 am partying or possibly drunk again! She stumbled through her routine, lacked energy, enthusiasm. While her body looks WAY better than mine - she makes her money off of her looks - and she looked BAD. All the jiggly when she would step down.... oh. Just bad.

Whatever happened Brit and the whole magic act/Criss Angel thing that was supposed to have happened? I just felt so sorry for her. She looked so uncomfortable and sad. Sarah Silverman has to go. Her opening monologue was just about as cringe-worthy as Brit's performance. I never understood the whole fascination with Sarah Silverman anyway...

Enough about Brit.

I thought Sarah Silverman was mean, but my first instinct was to laugh. So, I guess she did her job. I think she's funny because she talks about these people to their faces, unlike Kathy Griffin, who is also hilarious, by the way. Love them both.

And, enough with Brit, Chris Brown, that boy is THE TRUTH. He made me smile, and applaud even though nobody could hear me.

Posted by: Anonimis | September 10, 2007 10:05 AM | Report abuse

Kathy Griffin is okay, but when I look at Sarah I get the feeling that if someone would have followed her act with an act about how she is not cute, not funny and not talented, I think she would have rolled into a ball on the floor and cried.

Now that would be funny.

Oh, lay off Britney's body. Yeah, she didn't do a great performance, but the woman has had 2 kids basically back-to-back. I had one and would kill for her stomach. Being pregnant is hell on your body and it never looks the same afterward, no matter how much you work out. Even Gwen Stefani's figure looks different and she's back in shape.

Interesting. I thought Silverman was the best part of the night. The whole, "And then he said the weirdest thing, 'I'm Kanye West'" was hilarious.

She's very mean and awkward but that's her schtick and she's great at it.

Yes Mazarin - there are good reasons Brit's body is not in top shape but then she should realize NOT to wear a bikini! If you are a performer like her you can have semi-revealing yet more flatering performance clothes.

Brit's body looks a hell of a lot better than mine and I've never had children, but, she should have worn something more appropriate to cover that pooch.

It looks as if MTV got what it wanted...more viewers and since they will not be rerunning it 50 more times, from all the comments, there will be a lot more traffic to their website.

The Junkies this morning were saying how she wanted to do the Criss Angel thing and it got pulled last minute by the Palms and MTV for lack of insurance, and also that Britney heard what Sarah Silverman planned to say and so was just pissed off. Why that inspired her to continue with a career-ruining performance, I don't know, but it's maybe a clue-in. Also, her body looks stellar given her situation, but even a good body can look bad in the wrong clothing. Also, staying out till 3 does NOT help. It's just so ridiculous, it all seems like it has to be a big joke. The celeb response and polite applause was hilarious though. Also, I thought the whole show seemed like her, bloated, frentic and trying too hard. Glad I managed to make it back to football at some point in that mess.

Brit was awful, it was so so sad. My guess what that the pulled the Cris Angel magic because Brit wouldn't have been able to be slick enough to pull it all off, she was pretty clumsy as it is. There was no energy or enthusiasm at all in her routine, she was totally outdone by her backup dancers. There was one part in the very very beginning when I thought it looked like she almost slipped on stage. Her hair was distgusting, she needs to take the extensions out and wash her head!!

Brit would have looked amazing (besides the ratty hair) if she had word a corset type outfit instead of a bare all bikini. Yeah, none of us look great in a bikini, but at least we're not dancing around on live TV! She could have been much sexier if she had covered up.

"It's just so weird to be privy to someone's complete breakdown, all while that person seems to have no idea." - Sigh, I think that sums up the fascination. It's just that she's so disastrous and seems to not notice what everyone else can see. Do you think she'll go on someone's talk show to explain it in the next week or two? Or is she past that point?

And just to second the other comments - I'm not criticizing Britney's body, which is fine, but her wardrobe choice, which is NOT FINE.

Posted by: h3 | September 10, 2007 10:51 AM | Report abuse

To anon @ 10:49 AM

I couldn't agree more about her outfit.

My husband and I watched it online and both thought that her body looked great for someone who popped out two kids in two years. But her current obvious lack of her former discipline meant that her outfit - which would only be comparison to former MTV VA outfits - was just a bad choice.

Covering up and emphasizing what the "breast fairy" brought her post pregnancy would have been the wiser move. Hell, a great outfit and simple staging would have served her better, as well.

As for her dancing - I was wondering if those heinous boots had something to do with it. As much as I could bear it this morning, I went back and looked at old performances. Her most energetic dance routines had her in flatter shoes.

And - most tellingly - in the Madonna/Britney/Xtina thing - watch Madonna come down the stairs in her tottering S&M boots - she's watching every step she takes. And none of the dancing was terribly exotic - spirited perhaps, but not exactly kick-butt. Those shoes simply ain't made for dancing.

Talk about wardrobe malfunction.

Britney did not make any effort in her performance or getting her self into shape and last night it showed.

-Gwen Stefani, who makes no secret of how hard it was for her after her pregnancy, hired a personal trainer.

-Janet Jackson, who is 16 years older than Brit and is a yo-yo dieter, hires a personal trainer, personal chef and a choreographer before a her new singles or CDs are released.

- Madonna does yoga, pilates, runs and weight-trains for her tours, and she pushing 50.

-Mel B just had a baby a few months ago and she looks better than Brit.

Posted by: Lisa1 | September 10, 2007 11:42 AM | Report abuse

Mostly, I feel compassion for Britney Spears, since what I saw in last night's disastrous performance was someone suffering from, at the very least, severe clinical depression. She behaves like someone on the mood regulator Lithium, which tends to flatline the personality. She's quite capable of ambition, discipline, and bringing fire to a performance -- she's done it all her life, until she fell apart. The fact that she can't muster the effort anywhere speaks to some serious emotional or psychological issues. As the LA TIMES reviewer said about her performance: "Sexy has never looked so sad...."

And BTW, enough about the poor girl's weight. Sure, she was a litlte jiggly here and there, but on the whole, she's in better shape than the vast majority of Americans.

Jennifer Ouellette, the weight comments are less about the shape Brit's body was in and more about her choice of wardrobe. No one can deny that she looks good for having had two kids so recently and that she is not fat at all, but her outfit was rather unflattering. Like someone else suggest, a corsetted number would have been sexier and more figure flattering. That is all.

Poor Poor Britney!

I just saw the performance - all of the other posted criticisms are on the mark. While she is not fat and a better costuming choice could have saved her embarrassment, she is certainly out of shape for the superstar she's supposed to be. Getting back into shape should be a top professional priority for her right now.

I'll tell you why I feel sad for Britney, and in general it is very difficult for me to feel sorry for young, healthy people with nine figure net worths. She has a lot of life left to live in a world where no one wants to take her seriously. A world where little people like me are not just laughing at her but actually feeling *sorry* for her must certainly be difficult to bear, even with all the beach houses and luxury cars money can buy.

Britney needs to make one serious comeback and go out with a bang before moving on to other pursuits perhaps more fitting to her new station in life as a mother. She has the money, time and star power to still do a lot of good for the world - just maybe not as a pop superstar.

ConSpiraCy Theory:
MTV wants us all to be talkign about the VMA's, despite the fact they are phoney Reality TV 24/7.

They hired Spears, and set her up to fail. If she was at her best it would've been off the radar, a yawner. But a horrible showing was expected and Silverman was hired to twist the knife to add to the controversy and Spears misert. MTV, Viacom, and many many others have a vested interest in profiting from her troubles.
Like brokers they make money on her ascent and descent until no one cares anymore.

Used to be Hollywood could make stars, and get rid of them and make new ones on command. Now, cruelly, they make stars, ruin their souls, drag the wreckage of their lives through the mud for fun, profit, and the feeding of the voracious global media machine. They've had her way with her career for sure.
