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
they were being generous.

sarah silvermen straight up trashed her....and just about everyone else. god that was awkward. not single person laughing in the audience.

She did terrible, just terrible, with her lip syncing attempt. She looks uncomfortable on stage.
I think she needs to reinvent herself. That virginal vixen she was is gone forever.
i would have died laughing if she'd have followed through with that attempted face plant at the beginning of the show.


and then sarah silverman blew her up immediately afterward. god that was awful. (though the joke about the pot calling the kettle whore was pretty good)

Chris Brown killed it. And even though Kanye threw tantrums, I think his performances in the Playboy suite were crazy, just imagine a hotel party having some drinks with a great artist performing right there shaking hands with you instead of listening to a DJ spin it. Out on the pool balcony singing "The Good Life" - "Got my card back activated/Now I'm back to Vegas..." - Damn, I wish I was there.

she's not like fat-fat, but she's comparably fat for someone who used to be like a total sex kitten, especially wearing those clothes.

not that she should be dressing like a mennonite school marm, but she doesn't have the body anymore for what she was trying to pull off.

I can't believe she turned down Timberlake's offer to write a come-back song for her.

She probably figures she can get somebody else to rip off Michael Jackson just as well as he does.

While she's definitely not in as good a shape as she used to be, it's no wonder girls these days are starving themselves when people are calling Britney Spears fat. I'll bet few here would have a problem with their woman if she had Britney's body.

she has a nice body, but it's not the way it used to be which was nicer. i don't think the beaded bikini and fishnet stockings she was wearing really complimented her figure.

i was actually routing for her. i hoped she would do well since so many eyes were on her. i've also read that she'd been partying it up hard with P. Diddy and Paris all weekend, (dancing on tables, etc.) and that may be part of the reason she couldn't keep up with her dancers on stage.

I have said it before but I will say it again.

The saddest part is that this girl is a MOTHER of two children!

She is an attention whore who cannot bare the fact that she now sucks...bad! And she will do anything, including going on stage high to give a fvcked up performance, to get the attention she wants. Look at it, everyone is talking about her today. That is what she wants.

Meanwhile, she's probably back at home, getting stoned and drunk in front of her babies...if they are even around...probably being driven around by some unlicensed nanny who doesn't know how to operate car seats or seat belts. In other words, now that the spotlight is off her for being preggors, she wants nothing to do with the kids anymore. What will they grow up to be? What example is she setting?

She needs to go away. MTV needs to go away. The RIAA and its quest to promote pretty bodies needs to go away. What the world needs is grassroots music. People, be they fat and ugly or not but have a passion for music, need to write, need to sing, and need to somehow get their music out there. Industrialized music, where the lyrics are written by a marketing team that thinks it knows what teens want, needs to go away. Forever.

People always talk about how such and such celebrity is such a great mom.....because they hire the best nanny money can buy while they continue to hit the clubs and drink themselves unconscious after loading up on prescription pills every night.

Really? I thought people were always harping on celebrities for being bad parents. I don't think I've ever heard Britney Spears accused of being a good mom, for example.

the rest was typical mtv. flashes of celebrities. fast cut scenes to "VIP parties" which were little rooms where people were performing.


and it was only 2 hours rather than 3.

anyway, this thing has to stop soon. how can you even give video awards if you dont air videos?

mtv is dead. it had a good run though. about 20 years

I didn't understand these cuts...

there are a couple celebrities who are touted as being great parents (well, comparably great, for celebrities), but they're generally not the same people who are hitting the party circuit.
