I Want More

Did y'all watch the VMA's last night!?

Richard and I were out of town so we set the pre-show and the actual awards to record. I fast forwarded to the one little part I wanted to see... the Comeback of Britney Spears! I actually was interested in seeing if she even showed up! She's been scheduled for shows periodically in Vegas and has a terrible habit of being a no-show or performing horrendously. I had to see how this one went.

She showed, but obviously wasn't into it. It appeared as if she was scared.... stage fright almost. Maybe it was a bit overwhelming to her. Who knows. But the lip-synching was horrible and she even just stopped singing at one point... and then seemed to remember she was supposed to be singing. The choreography was like what a group of elementary school kids could do. Nothing fantastic. Nothing 'popping'. I also thought a few times that she seemed to stumble...

What happened to Chris Angel? Rumor had it they were going to perform together. Maybe at the last minute HE bailed and she was forced to throw together some performance?!?

Here's what I read this morning:

MTV Awards flourish despite Britney bomb
Today at 3:55 am

As in most train wrecks, it was hard to focus on just one thing as the Britney Spears disaster unfolded. There was just so much that went wrong.

Out-of-synch lip-synching. Lethargic movements that seemed choreographed by a dance instructor for a nursing home. The paunch in place of Spears' once-taut belly. At times she just stopped singing altogether, as if even she knew nothing could save her performance.

Designed to drum up excitement for her upcoming album, Spears' kickoff to the MTV Video Music Awards on Sunday night became another example of how far she has fallen. It would have been understandable if MTV's show had been crushed under the weight of the opening fiasco -- yet somehow it rebounded, and even flourished

It's too bad he can't make her disappear.

Her and all her troubles are getting old and on my nerves. You can take a skank out of the swamp... Oh wait.. That doesn't exactly make sense..

I actually feel sorry for her sometimes. I just want to say "Pick on someone else for awhile."

I did not see it...but you have certainly peaked my interest! I will have to go and check it out!

In a way I do feel sorry for her too. I read a comment online yesterday from a mother of four... she said that "you guys (the media) need to leave her alone. She's a young mother, just like I was and there isnt one mistake she's made that I havent made myself. All mom's do things that could be questionable because its a learning experience. Its just that she has people chasing her all day long and its publicized. You make her worse than she really is or ever thought of being. Let her live!!"

I thought it was pretty good. I've noticed that some celebrities do mean things or make terrible mistakes (Kim Basinger and Baldwin come to mind) and we spend all of 30 seconds talking about it. But Britney does one thing and they harp on it for weeks!

I hope she pulls it together. It will be kinda sad if she doesnt... those boys dont stand a chance without her. Their dad is a #1 loser!!!

TC said...

See, that's just it. When she tripped that one time and almost dropped the baby... ANYONE could do that, but because it was Britney, it was like that made her a horrible mother.

I donno.

She's done stupid stuff, the number one thing being those boys' Dad, but... I think sometimes all the media attention makes it worse and doesn't help her start to get her life together.

tc: Agree! Well said! They need to leave her alone...
