It's not even that she was out of shape, I could forgive her for that. The lip synching was forgiveable. But the dead eyes were a giveaway. This girl wasn't even going to try. So instead, I have here the UNCENSORED VMA performance. This had more life, seriously.
Britney in better days

I was still in the fantasy land wherein Britney and Justin would end up together and produce a progeny of popstar babies.

My god this girl WAS hot. Nude stocking has never been so nude.

Then she just took off her clothes and boy did she deserve to go naked.

So the kiss overshadowed the performance, but at least Britney had some confidence.
Damn girl, you're just plain crazy.
On the other hand, I thought Chris Brown and Rihanna tore up the floor with "Wall to Wall" and "Umbrella." And Timbaland's medley was so amazing to close the show. If only they had opened it instead, because Britney's performance was just terrible.
Move over old timers, Chris Brown + injured Rihanna beats y'all
It's amazing cause ALL these songs are OUT right NOW. Timbaland is prolific alright.
