Britney Spears’ new video for ‘Gimme More’ is not officially scheduled to debut until Monday—but here’s your chance to get it out of the way now.
After you finish watching the clip, ask yourself these questions:
- Was the sense of nausea you felt a result of the shaky editing or something else?
- Did her hair remind you of Demi Moore, Cher or Morticia Addams?
- Is it even possible to dance with shorts lodged so far up your rear?
- Did you find yourself laughing more than voyeur Britney did in the video?
- Was there even a point to the whole thing?
Though the headlines were pushed farther down the page in the wake of Britney’s jaw-dropping performance at the MTV VMAs, the battle royale between Tommy Lee and Kid Rock did get some of the attention it deserved. Any time aging rockers start to duke it out over a fading, bleach-blonde actress, it’s just good entertainment. So…why not put Rock and Lee in a ring and let them duke it out for real? At least, that’s the idea that has tickled the fancy of Las Vegas showman Jeff Beacher, who is offering the rockers $1 million to fight at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino. To winner go the spoils, and the odds-on favorite is already Rock. Beacher has promised that if the rockers agree, he’ll even have Mini Britney open the show. Mini Britney is the nickname of 26-year-old performer Terra Jole, who is known for her Britney impersonation.

If you’ve somehow missed the disparaging comments about Britney Spears on stage at the VMAs, you’re a better person than me – because I’ve found it’s totally unavoidable. The first day, the comments centered on Brit’s off-beat performance, her lethargic dance moves, and her completely lackluster stage presence. The second day, the news was filled with remarks about Brit’s body. The songstress has never been afraid to show off what she’s got, but critics are saying the mother of two should be covering it up instead. Video of Brit’s performance is absolutely everywhere for those that missed the MTV broadcast, and for those who just want to have a good laugh a second time around. Several reporters claim to have “the real story” behind the big B-bomb that landed on stage during award night. But does anyone, other than Spears herself, really know what went wrong?

Dear Video Music Awards viewers:
We’re probably all tired of talking about Ms. Spears and her disastrous performance by now…but I’d been thinking about The Biggest Loser premiere last night and I just had to get this off my chest: Britney isn’t fat.
Yes, she’s bigger now than we she last appeared on the VMAs.
Yes, she would have looked better in the corset.
Yes, I’m sick of this alter-stripper persona that she has taken on.
But dang—I thought she looked pretty good for someone who’d drinking frozen margaritas non-stop. And heck, I’m just happy she didn’t wear those ugly brown boots onstage!
You can call her a train wreck, bad mother, lost child all you want….but let’s lay off the weight.
Yeah, you heard me right. I’m actually defending Britney. But make no mistake—I’m only defending her on this one issue. For those of you who read my first open letter to Britney, I still stand behind everything I said then.
For those that missed the black bikini-clad Britney Spears at the VMAs last night, there are videos all over the Web and clips all over the TV. Immediately after the broadcast, the E! network started running a ticker bashing Brit’s performance. MTV’s broadcast might have been a comeback chance for Britney Spears, but her performance is getting headlines for different reasons. As stars like Sean “Diddy” Combs looked on in confusion, Spears lip-synched her way through a performance that wasn’t on beat, contained less-than-thrilling dance moves, and fell completely flat with fans. Between Brit’s bomb and the fist fight between Kid Rock and Tommy Lee, the artists who won awards were treated more like afterthoughts amid the electric-blue tables that crowded the main room, and the chaotic suites that hosted live performances. Despite encouraging words from fans and other artists, Spears still seems more like a slow-motion train wreck than pop superstar.

Before this evening’s festivities begin, the producers of the 2007 MTV Video Music Awards should really thank the scandal-plagued artists who’ve unintentionally thrown publicity their way. Tonight, we’ll be thinking about those performers who’ve canceled because they need to be in rehab (Amy Winehouse) and closely watching those who should probably go back (Britney Spears).
We’d been warning you for weeks that this would be a one-time only telecast, but in case you forgot—we hope this helps. And for those who live on the West Coast (like me), you can play along and read our coverage as if it were in real-time:
I’ve admittedly not kept up with dusty MySpace account, and now I’m not sure if I’m hip enough to return.
MTV—once again proving they’re the place to turn to for quality programming—will be introducing another dating/reality show this fall. The ingenious twist? This time around male and female contestants will be competing to date the same person: Tila Tequila. For those oblivious (like I was) to this internet celebrity, the bisexual beauty is apparently ‘the most popular girl in the history of MySpace’. Should I now feel sad that she’s not one of my ‘friends’?
Once her show A Shot at Love With Tila Tequila debuts on October 9th, Tila will work on becoming the most popular girl on MTV as well. Take note, Lauren Conrad!

Justin Timberlake brought SexyBack, but can Brit bring herself back from the tabloid nightmare she has fallen into? Britney Spears has released a new single called Gimme More - a catchy tune that’s burning up radio waves. The song opens with Britney’s voice, rife with attitude: “It’s Britney, bitch” – but don’t worry, it does get a little better from there. Spears will also be performing at the MTV VMAs this year, a stage she once made famous when she exchanged a sultry, mid-song kiss with pop Queen Madonna (whose crown will never truly be taken, all kisses and pop princesses aside).

Unlike recent years when you could catch a rerun of the MTV Video Music Awards for weeks on end (usually following an episode of Sweet Sixteen), the cable channel has finally smartened up and made it a more exclusive event. Why cheapen a show by milking it to death? Then again, this is coming from a network that has already cheapened it’s image thanks to the mere presence of Next and (insert the name of any other MTV show here
So in hopes of bringing back the audience that has disappeared during the show’s premiere time slot, the channel will air 2007’s telecast one time only. In other words, they are basically following the lead of every other high-profile awards program (e.g. The Oscars, Emmys, Golden Globes) that forces people to gather in large numbers at one time. Additionally, the network is promising to revamp the telecast overall and has even brought on uber-producer Timbaland to be the evening’s musical director. Now if they can promise me that Britney Spears will make the rumored surprise appearance (and does a trash-tastic performance at that)—I’ll be there. Better yet, I hope she cancels unexpectedly.
Take note: The Moon Men will be handed out on September 9th from the Palms Casino in Las Vegas.
