We were less than pleased to see that Britney was hanging out with Criss Angel the other day well into the wee hours of the morning. However, the Mindfreak is claiming that he and Brit are not together and that he's working with her on her rumored performance at the MTV Video Music Awards. We're not even sure we believe that Britney will make an appearance, but she's definitely wowed us at the VMAs plenty of times in the past. What do you think - can a big VMA performance bring back Britney?
