Britney Spears performance wasn’t her original plan

Britney Spears train wreck performance at the VMAs was thrown together at the last-minute. MTV apparently nixed Britney’s original idea that would’ve included the highly-publicized magic of Criss Angel. Britney was unmotivated about the performance and it showed. E! Online has the details:

“Britney wanted an elaborate magic act on stage,” an insider reveals. “But it got to be so over-the-top, it was just too complicated to pull off. So, she had to modify her act at the last minute, and she wasn’t happy.”
The 25-year-old pop tart reportedly wanted to stage a series of Criss Angel-inspired illusions that would have had her disappearing and reappearing throughout the act.

Britney decided to honor her commitment to MTV, but her lack of enthusiasm became evident.

“She went out all night and then came in for rehearsals entirely not into what she was doing,” our source said. “It was obvious she didn’t want to be there.”
Though people around Spears tried to reassure her the act was strong even without the magic stunts – even Justin Timberlake, who reportedly sent his ex a good luck note – the singer visibly lost her motivation to perform.
“Brit no longer seemed to care. She’d roll her eyes in response or not say anything. It was hard to watch,” our source said.

Britney also blamed a broken stiletto heel, advance knowledge of Sarah Silverman’s cracks and allergy drops for the lackluster performance. All interesting theories, but I know who’s really to blame: Scott Baio. I may not have one single shred of evidence to back that up. I might also have just seen a commercial for his reality show and named him out of sheer hate. But I know it was him. And I’ll prove it. Even if I have to die trying.

UPDATE: I gave up after five minutes and made a sandwich. Suddenly I realized I care way more about mustard than anything I was just talking about. I don’t even remember. But this is some good mustard. Spicy brown.

    uh-huh……

    .

  2. Blah blah blah. Does anyone care or is surprised???

  3. Criss Angel couldn’t pull off a magic stunt to revive Brits career.

  4. notintomusic

    Britney should be forced to write a song entitled “Personal Responsibility” and put it on her next “I Suck” album.

  5. ChubbyHasBeen

    Too bad they wouldn’t let Criss Angel just make her disappear.

  6. miajudakenishot

    she sucked

  7. LadyJane

    I like sammiches.

  8. jrzmommy

    Her outfit was inappropriate. But not as inappropriate as the decision to open an International House of Pancakes at the WTC memorial site.

  9. crash bang

    isnt spicy brown a latin rapper?

  10. I am sure she didn’t plan to suck!

  11. hhy

    haha britney blames everyone for her perfomance, typical response of a person with addictions

  12. Binky

    Her stomach made more moves that she did.

  13. veggi

    hahahaha Blinky!!!!!!

  14. Spicy Brown is a cayanne-infused Steamer. I enjoyed one last night.

  15. lambman

    well, to be honest I’d feel the same way. When Brit used to do the VMAs they had proper hosts like Chris Rock and had an actual stage…remember her last few performances? One involeved snakes, tigers and a huge set, another had Madonna, Christina and MIssy Elliot with an elaborate stage and costumes.

    All they had this year was a crappy little stage not big enough for dancers, so people ahd to stand on tables.

    Also Sarah Silverman isn’t funny at all, she’s just mean spirited. If she were funnier it would justify being as cruel as she is, but her jokes all suck more than Paris on a friday

  16. LF

    Is that why she looked like she didn’t know the words to her own song? It all makes sense now.

  17. bob

    god, she’s got more excuses than Papa Joe when Ashley got caught lip syncing.

  18. Lindsay

    How hard is it for her to ensure that her mop is washed, her outfit *fits*, and walk around the stage for 3 minutes? If that is all I had to do to make big $$$ – I would be laughing all the way to the bank each week. I hope someone has her on suicide watch…

  19. Hemlock Queen

    Dirty whore never learns. She flashed her smelly fish taco right afterwards to hop to the next Vegas nightclub. Niiiice.

    Totally true @11.

  20. LF

    I think the reason people don’t like Sarah Silverman is because she says that things that everyone is thinking but never actually wants to say out loud for fear of being judged by it. She doesn’t care, and that’s what makes her great. Besides, not everyone is supposed to like the same comedian. That’s why there are so many in the first place.

  21. Ooba Gooba

    Let’s see, some more excuses……

    Acid reflux
    The CD skipped
    Outfit was too tight
    The lights were in her eyes
    Her band played the wrong song

    And on and on and on……….she seriously needs to go away.

  22. LadyJane

    spicy brown is Paris’s asshole.

  23. jrzmommy

    Whatever JrzTroll….
    Now this is a new one……….an “I-Sucked-Because-I-CHOSE-to-Suck ” excuse. That actually may be the most creative thing I’ve ever heard of.

  24. @15 Good morning troll. Who gave you the steamer last night? Did it bring back fond memories of your brother giving you a big hot steamer?

  25. Nikk

    Yeah, what, huh? Spin it some more.

  27. IWONKY

    She is showing us how well she can suck. Now she should just flood the internet with images of her sucking the big one. And hopefully, she can do that better.

  28. clete

    Justin Timberlake…eat your heart out? Who is sorry now?
    stomp…stomp…gimme…gimme…duh
    Of course her stilleto heel broke – that ham-footed fool.
    stomp…stomp…gimme…gimme…duh
    Sarah Silverman…bravo!

  29. Ted from LA

    It wasn’t a very good magic act… I could see her career disappear the whole time.

  30. snood

    Sarah Silverman’s act is entirely about herself and her annoying style of delivery. She is wack.

  31. Riotboy

    Riiiight.

    /shenanigans!

  32. Mick

    She’s only saying it was last minute to make up for the fact that she sucked! All she did was walk around (not even dancing) on stage. Plus, she’s trying to cover up why shes really spending time with chris angel!

  33. JennyO

    No excuses. You suck it up and perform if you’re a professional which obviously she is not.
    These excuses might be better accepted if the rehearsal had been bad too but that was way better.

  35. p0nk

    i was kind of figuring ‘terrorist plot’ from the get go, so her claiming it wasn’t her idea doesn’t surprise me.

  36. Doppelganger

    Um, MTV has NEVER EVER LIMITED ARTISTIC FREEDOM. They let her bring a live fucking snake last time. They have let Justin come out of a gigantic mechanical boom box. They let Eminem have 1,000 look alikes follow him in from the street.

    MTV LOVES OVER THE TOP, EXTRAVAGENT PERFORMANCES. They don’t limit people. Britney’s act turned out like shit because she’s a piece of trailer trash shit. She didn’t deserve the opportunity. KANYE WEST SHOULD OF OPENED THE SHOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    SARAH SILVERMAN IS FREAKIN’ HILARIOUS!!!!!!! LOVE LOVE LOVE HER!!!

  37. Trina

    Keep an empty stomach. There are some brand new crotch shots of Britney making their way around. So pathetic. And her career is totally over now, according to this expert. Good riddance!

  38. zombie hat

    Suddenly, after reading this, I have a really sudden urge to take a crap.

  39. mabbo

    If she was dealing with a broken heel, then why did she wear those boots? Why didn’t she have spare boots handy just in case? This is what happens when a celebrity fires everyone and decides to *handle* their career all by her lonesome. And of course Silverman was going to go after Britney, that is obvious. I also agree with the person above me who said she should have sucked it up and performed like a professional. So what, you didn’t get your magic show. Boo Hoo. Take the performance you did have and give it your all. Believe me, the audience would have appreciated it. Excuses, excuses.

  40. Taine

    Britney needs to be humanely euthanized.

  41. Bobby Ewing

    Oops she did it again – thats right. She probably felt that if she showed her Swamp Hog Crotch/Vagina (probably the only thing more horrible to look at other than her VMA performance) it might make people forget about the thing. Don’t believe it see http://www.jlaforums.com/viewtopic.php?p=9844139#9844139 but don’t get mad if your retinas are burned out…..

  42. More proof that money is the best insulation from reality.

    She’s obviously so fucking gone at this point it doesn’t even matter. I’m hoping for either a speedy suicide or a quiet fade into obscurity.

    And just for the record, fuck Sarah Silverman. She’s famous because she’s a foul-mouthed Jew who doesn’t care about being repulsive. No talent. Just an obnoxious pile of feces.

    Amy Sedaris > Sarah Silverman

  43. Anexio

    Making fun of Britney is like making fun of the retarded kid in school.

    The ‘tard is still a ‘tard but you look like an idiot too.

    It’s all BS…too late for the spin, that is what she did on stage isn’t it? She was obviously either very hungover or drunk or stoned. She had the opportunity to do this up right and chose to hit Vegas prior to her performance. She is not serious about her career at all…or her kids! If she overdosed tomorrow this would be her legacy…glad I’m not her!

  46. It gets worse – check out the latest spin she’s using!

  47. Boston Red

    I got a fever. The only prescription is more cowbell.

    This song could have used the BELL!

    What a FAT joke she has become..

    Good for her. I hope she enjoys some more lolly-pops. I’m sure they have MORE than just suger in them..

  48. THE ONE WHO KNOWS

    Sara Silverman is a bitch. She is mad because her nose is stuck up Jimmy Kimbles ass, and the only one who will have sex with her is Andy Dick. Someone shove a bucket of shit down her mouth and gag her !!!
