My high school years consisted of trying to imitate her dances with my friends and being in line at the now extinct Sam Goody to buy her CD the moment in came out. However, in recent years I have become disgusted with the antic of Britney Spears. Her all night partying despite her responsibilities at home, and her rumored drinking and drugs, along with the clothes she wears that bares way to much even for a mother of her young age.
Last night I was hoping to see Britney come back. Sure, her new song is terrible, repeating the words (and title of the song) “Gimme More” over and over again to a decent beat, but I was hoping her performance would outweigh the horrendous sound of the song.
I was EXTREMELY disappointed. Britney looked as though she was drugged. She barely moved and whether that be because she was actually drugged or simply because she was wearing shoes that she probably couldn’t dance in, it didn’t even matter. She was obviously lip syncing, missing some of the words and not moving her mouth to bits and pieces. Only somebody really observing would have caught that. I still can’t get over the fact that she barely moved. Her performance was far from those energentic performances that she has put on in the past: singing “Slave 4 U” while writhing around on stage with a massive python, working with Madonna and Christina Aguilera to perform “Like a Virgin” 20 years after the original performance by Madonna. Not to mention, her outfit was way to small for the out of shape body she is currently sporting.
Articles have been posted left and right regarding the performance, as well as Sarah Silverman who did the opening monologue at the show. One online rag magazine is reporting that Britney went on stage upset after finding out what Ms. Silverman was planning on saying about Spears and her sons. While she laid of Paris Hilton this time around (sort of) she said the following about Spears:
“Was that amazing? I mean, it’s incredible. She’s 25 years old and already has accomplished everything she will accomplish in her life.”
Silverman continues, “It’s weird to think that just a few years ago on this very show, she was this, like, innocent little girl in slutty clothes writing around on stage with a python. That’s not nice…calling Madonna a python.”
She went even further, commenting on Spears’ kids with ex-husband Kevin Federline: Have you seen Britney’s kids? Oh my god, they are the most adorable mistakes you will ever see! They are as cute as the hairless vagina they came out of.” She then turned her head to the side and made her lips look like a vagina.
Oh! And where did Chris Angel come into the performance? Rumor has it that he helped her with some illusions using mirrors during the show. Did I miss something? I must have because I saw nothing magical about this performance.
