Britney Spears to open MTV’s VMAs

Britney SpearsFollowing last year’s embarrassing performance at MTV’s Video Music Awards, no one expected Britney Spears to come back for retribution—but that’s exactly what she’s doing. The pop princess has confirmed that she will be part of an opening segment that will not feature a musical performance (and we thank her for that). In a statement released to People magazine, Spears said she was looking forward to the show. “MTV has long played an important role in my career. How can I not be there to kick off their 25th VMAs? I’m excited to open the entire show, to say hi to my fans and to be nominated.” With 16 previous nominations, Spears has yet to take home an award from the show, but this might just be her year. Spears is up for Best Female Video, Best Pop Video and Video of the Year for “Piece of Me.”

    “Hopefully Britney can get it together this time and begin to put her life on the right path”……..yes, she has been doing that for the last 6 months!! Her life has improved quite a bit since her father took over her estate.

    just because she’s stayed out of the spotlight, doesn’t mean her life has improved

    Well Anonymous, I didn’t make my previous comment because Britney has “stayed out of the spotlight”. I made the comment because Britney has made a few improvements in her life…such as, staying out of the spotlight, getting more (no, not all…but MORE nonetheless) time with her kids…which would also mean that her drug tests are coming out clean, feeling better about herself and excercising more to lose her pregnancy weight, etc., and now she is getting back into the swing of things by opening the VMA’s this year. I’d say she has been doing quite well in the last 6 months or so and although I’m not a member of the Britney fan club, I really think it is great for her and her two little boys that she moves up in the world.

    I just can’t believe that she’s still alive, after everything she’s gone through. Yes, she does seem to have made huge improvements in her life, and I hope it continues, not only for her sake, but for those two dear little boys.
