Britney Hits a Sour Note

In search of a comeback, a seemingly nervous and lethargic Britney Spears gave what many in the entertainment industry are saying was a less than stellar, lip-synced performance Sunday night at the MTV Video Music Awards.

The “Oops… I Did It Again” singer looked out of shape and out of touch while performing her new single “Gimme More.” Her dancing appeared uninspired and her choice of outfits, a bikini top and skimpy bottom, did not flatter her new shape. According to the Associated Press, she looked “bleary and unprepared,” adding that she “walked through her dance moves with little enthusiasm” and “appeared she had forgotten the entire art of lip-synching.” . . .

Shots of the star-studded audience showed celebrities, such as Rihanna, 50 Cent and Diddy, with bewildered and confused expressions on their faces.

Ironically, one of Britney’s old flames, Justin Timberlake, was the night’s big winner snagging four of the “moon man” awards.
