Spears cried after performance

Britney Spears September 12 2007Britney Spears was so upset after her performance at the MTV Awards on Sunday night that she began crying. Wearing a sequined bikini, she lip synched to her new song “Gimme More,” but was thrown off when she caught sight of herself on a video monitor. A backstage source told Us Weekly, “She was able to see video of herself throughout the auditorium. She flipped out. She came running off the stage, yelling, ‘Oh, my God, I looked like a fat pig! I looked like a fat pig!’ She was inconsolable.”

    Its true… she does look like a fat pig. And apparently she picked out her own piggy uniform too.

    she wasnt fat she is just delusional and has this crazy image of herself, yes she looked bad but that was because she didnt even believe in the performance herself.

    I am in awe at how critical all of you are about a person you don’t know and who’s life you can’t even imagine living. And how can you call her fat? Comments like that are the reason so many young girls become anorexic as they try to live in the image of their idols.

    You’re right, she didn’t have the abs that you could bounce dimes off of, but she was hardly fat. If she’s fat then 80% of all of us, including those of you here who are so critical of her appearance, are clearly obese! This is a woman who’s had two children, after all. If she was guilty of anything, it was an extremely poor choice of outfits and having not properly prepared for her routine.

    Yes, it’s not her body shape I was concerned with – back in days of old, as long as you could bump and grind in vaudville you were a hit! I just found her performance lacking energy (almost walking through the whole thing), no smiles, it was like she wasn’t even trying to have fun – something I’ve come to expect from her. After all the bad press, and choices she’s made, you would think she would want to make a good impression at this event. However the song was “Gimme More” and we certainly wanted more – maybe the next time she’ll shine, if given the opportunity.

    Give the girl a chance ppl jeeze just went through hell n trying to come back from it.I dont think it was her time yet though to make her comeback as she clearly wasnt in it.Take your time Brit!!!

  10. Charmaine • September 14, 2007 @ 9:44 AM

    Kick people when they’re down…..this seems to be the natural response for many people. I’ve never been a fan but, “She’s obviously still down folks….Give her a chance to come back with some dignity”

  11. Jane Smith • September 14, 2007 @ 9:47 AM

    Holy smokes what a pack of wolves you are…
    Give her some space…She made an error in judgement about her time for coming back into a high stressed and completely false reality.

    So reality check here:
    Brit remember one thing only:
    “one day at a time”
    Change the things you can and forget the rest of the bull from egotistical big mouthes that say your fat. Take the time to recover and stick to the program and don’t let any harpie male or female stop you.

  12. Betty • September 14, 2007 @ 10:28 AM

    Come on! She’s had two kids, she deserves her little belly and she doesn’t have to look perfect all the time to sing and dance.I know she speaks and acts stupid but don’t be so mean. Can you actually imagine the stress of being in the public eye like that with constant criticism on your every move. Be nice.

  13. Cowgirl • September 14, 2007 @ 11:25 AM

    Gee, until I got to the last few comments I was ready to give up on humanity. Thank God there are still people out there with feelings for others. I’m a C/W fan and didn’t even know what happened until now but I feel sorry for Britney and I wish her luck in the future.

  14. Cheryl • September 14, 2007 @ 11:26 AM

    People need to look in their own mirrors. Everyone that is so critical should take a good look at their own lives and see how many faults they have. The one big difference is your not in the public eye having someone point out every small imperfection to the whole world. Give her a break!

  15. Monique • September 14, 2007 @ 11:32 AM

    Personally, I thought her body looked terrific. Her dancing wasn’t great and she looked like a deer staring into headlights.
    I really feel bad for the girl, and was hoping that this would help her break out of her depression.

  16. maria • September 14, 2007 @ 11:56 AM

    She’ll get over it.

    I like those glasses 🙂

  17. Meggars • September 14, 2007 @ 12:35 PM

    Whew, Jane Smith, have I ever learnt my lesson! And when Britney reads your advice all will be well for her. She does read this, right?

  18. Mel:) • September 14, 2007 @ 2:11 PM

    Wow… I can’t believe how we become conditioned as adults to be so judgemental and ignorant. I have 3 teen boys, and I’m in great shape, Brits’ are still young, she’ll bounce back I’m sure… In the meantime, I think she needs to be reminded that beauty remains within. No matter who you are, how old, or how many children you have.

  19. quinn • September 14, 2007 @ 3:02 PM

    People this is not the girl next door. This is Britney “freakin'” Spears. This is her life and ultimately her death. She has to do right by her children. Priority number one. Everything else will fall into place if it is meant to be. And it’s not like she’s going on Welfare anytime soon. Another piece of advise, learn to sing. That’s where the longevity is.

  20. Mary • September 14, 2007 @ 3:08 PM

    All her problems started when she made a bad choice in her love life. What kind of jerk leaves his pregnant girlfriend? The only good thing that came from that mariage were the two beautiful baby boys. I’m not a fan of hers but I hope she gets it altogether and tries again, as for being fat far from it. She still has a lot of growing up to do and hasn’t really had the support she really needs. Bad Judgment in most cases.

  21. Wendy • September 14, 2007 @ 4:02 PM

    Best of luck to you Brittany. You were great once and I have every confidence that you will be again. As for all the mouths on here…… I’m glad that God is my judge not you vultures.

    The really sad part about the comments at the top are that they are so quick to judge. What is wrong with you people, you like to make others feel pain!! Its dispicable.

  24. Anonymous • September 14, 2007 @ 5:30 PM

    Britney needs a new management team AND she needs to get the hell away from that whole “use them and abuse them”, “party hard” Hollywood crowd. The whole lot of them are going to suck the life right out of her and they don’t give a flying fig because there will be somebody else waiting in the wings for them to do the same thing all over again.

    There is a giant moral vacuum in that business and every day it seems that another “entertainer” gets sucked down into it. The worst part about it? There is that whole segment of the population who relishes watching these people fall. How does that make you any better than the leeches that suck the life out Britney and the rest of them? Get off your high horses; even the mighty fall – sometimes falling like Humpty Dumpty – leaving too many fragments to pick up again.

  25. Gremikin • September 14, 2007 @ 5:51 PM

    She wasn’t FAT but why the hell did she decide to do her huge ‘comeback’ in a stripper’s outfit?! If you want to win back some respect, that ain’t how you do it!

  26. sk8tergirl • September 14, 2007 @ 8:24 PM

    Why do some celebraties freak out like that?

  27. gravelgertie • September 14, 2007 @ 9:01 PM

    the only thing wrong with britney,is that she never had a chanch to grow up and be a teenager .she just needs proper guidance.
    you go girl .

  28. xray • September 14, 2007 @ 10:37 PM

    she’s not fat she’s just big-boned………but seriously, since she played her image and made a lot of bucks off of it, i think it amusing that she twists now on the rope for looking and acting and squealing like such a sow.

    guidance? she never wanted any – except as directed by trash like pdiddy or whatever that retard calls himself nowadays.

    the bigger they are, the harder they fall. (no pun intended)

  29. Lynne • September 14, 2007 @ 11:47 PM

    I am not a huge Britney fan but I do like some of her music & videos. I watched the show & felt bad/embarassed for her. She looked uncomfortable, unsure & really nervous. I did however think she looked great. People are being very critical considering that North Americans(primarily the U.S.) have the highest obese population in the world!!!!!Granted she did not look like the Britney of 4 years ago but there was nothing wrong with her body. I do not know many women who have had 2 children that look half as good as she did. Leave her alone. She will find her way.

  30. Dave • September 15, 2007 @ 12:16 AM

    I don’t care what her body looked like…she is not fat anyway. The simple truth is that she has never had any talent. She can’t sing (proven by all the lip synching), she can’t dance, and never contributes to any songwriting. It takes a team of producers and writers just to make her sound good. She, and other pop tarts like her should just go away and maybe, just maybe there can be room for some acts with true talent. Big boobs, perfect weight, hair and teeth do not make up talent. Brains and hard work does.

  31. Peter • September 15, 2007 @ 1:42 AM

    wow, Britney gets more press being lousy than anyone else got being good. Why so much attention? Next…

  32. Anonymous • September 15, 2007 @ 6:18 AM

    She is not fat, but needs to start acting her age and the fact that she is a mother of 2 children. She should also stop dressing like she is 15.

  33. Ron • September 16, 2007 @ 9:15 AM

    I think it was way too soon to make a come back with all her personal problems.
    she needs to take time off get her life in order and then she can work on her music and figure… and stand up for her self..

  34. Anonymous • September 16, 2007 @ 10:08 AM

    if I was in the audience i would cry too.I would sue Brittany for cruel and unusal performance.

  35. Cesar • September 16, 2007 @ 8:21 PM

    I’ve heard that the reason we judge people, is because we see things in them that we wish we could have the courage to do, or because we fear that we’re so similar to them that when we see them being judged we’re afarid, so the best thing to do, to make oneself feel better, is to bring those who arn’t afarid of be themselves down…

    Love! People don’t be hating, because in the end all we have is eachother!
