Britney's Performance Two Ways

Britney's Performance Two Ways

Molly: Britney, I never counted myself among your loyal fans, but sitting next to one of your most devoted every day, I've waited patiently for your comeback this year. On stage last night you looked both terrified and over it. Both wanting the public's approval and wishing you never had to ask for it again. Plus, you're still hot and all - but come on now? Underwear? Even back with your snake you wore pants. It was hard to watch, and as you ran off the stage at the end it was obvious that you weren't entirely proud either. As I said, I love me some Toxic, but I'm not jamming out like Katie to your new single. Pop, on the other hand...

Pop: Oh Britney. Where do we go from here? I have been a fan that has been holding out for 2 years for your big comeback. I have been waiting patiently as you raised your kids, got married and divorced twice, watched you spend time promoting perfume instead of dancing and singing and then finally your time came tonight...and well, let's just say, it went. I don't want to think you peaked before 25 but how much longer can I hold out for what was one of the most entertaining pop stars to return?

Pop: Clearly you need some new people you can trust. You should have been told you could not wear your underwear on stage. It was not sexy. It's not that a mother of two can't show off her body but when you are known for your signature abs you better hide them until they are back before parading around half naked. Maybe if you dressed the part and danced with confidence then this post would be totally different. We expected more and you knew it by the way you ran off that stage. No one actually thought you would sing but you could have at least acted like you were. You looked like you were somewhere else the entire performance. We have no idea what is going on in your mind but we're begging you - Please blow us away with this album and some videos - Stop partying and get your ass back in shape like the girl on the treadmill in Chaotic - Show us that confident woman you used to be so we can still support you because if you keep falling flat like you did last night then there's no more desire to see what you will do next and life would be so different with no Britney Spears phenomenon to follow.

Molly: See Brit? People are still waiting, even after last night. We all know you lip sync, but at least you used to pretend and the world played along. Whether it was Sarah Silverman's cowardly jabs just after you exited stage left or the Palms curbing your stunts, you just weren't there last night. Lucky for you, your fans haven't given up hope yet. Just get it together (as if you haven't heard that one) and give us more, way more than that.

Good song, terrible performance, way bad choice of costume. I would kill to have the "fat" body she's walking around in. Why is it okay for male singers to be hefty? While the women get replaced in videos by models, hidden behind enormous candelabra or are called "fat" for having a little tummy? And for the record Sarah Silverman is a skank. Yes, Britney has been an amusing train wreck for the last year - and there are many many jokes to be made, but leave her effing kids out of it.

well then you're just waiting around for someone to pull the wool over your eyes....again. guess what. she has no talent. the reason she "had it" to begin with is because she had people making something out of nothing. and now, all those people are gone...and her old tricks just don't cut it. it's a little sad to see a 25 year old, twice divorced, mentally unstable, unintelligent, "mother" of 2 that we know just parties and casts off everyone close to her, up on stage trying to pull off the same pop dance moves that she was attempting to do when she was 17....its sad, it's pathetic, and the only thing that is worse is that people are so easily ammused that they actually buy into it. do you think that WWE wrestling is real too? seriously? guess what else is equally as entertaining...staring a blank wall.

Sorry girls, but I'm not waiting around anymore. Enough already. Seriously, enough Britney Spears.

Britney just looks extremely insecure here. She should really just take some time out, find herself, and then try for a comeback. You can see her eyes darting around like she's worried about what everyone thinks, right from the beginning. She looks like she has stage fright. After all the crazy things she's done, there's so much pressure on her to make her comeback, and she shouldn't put that on herself. It's just way too soon. She really needs some good selfless people to get through to her and support her. Her Mom allowed her daughter to trash herself because she got big houses, cars and money out of the deal. Her Mom didn't support Britney's relationship with Kevin, but now she's apparently siding with him in the custody battle. Her mom is disgusting. Britney just really needs to find Britney, and do her own thing. She's been through so much in a short time, I think mainly due to trying to live up to other people's expectations. Why does she need a big comeback? It's perfectly OK if she decides to be a full-time mom, or pursue other careers. I've never been one to defend her, but I really feel sorry for her now.

She was horrible...she was so nervous, so uncoordinated, so stiff...and I actually wanted to see her do well. What an opportunity to show the world...I'mmmmm backkkk. But no happs! On another note, Sarah Silverman is an AZZ and they need to NEVER invite her back. Britney should have come out and beat her like she stole something for calling her children "mistakes" on national television. She is the mistake.

i'm sadden about britney's inability to pick herself up, too. I was really routing for her.

It wasn't that bad, but it wasn't that great either. She needed a better stylist for sure! Maybe they changed shit up on her last minute. Anyway, most of the other performances weren't that great either!

All I will say is she is damn lucky she had all those other dancers up there with her who worked hard and learned their routines otherwise that would have been a complete and total disaster.

It wasn't one of her best performances but I do like the song. I can't imagine that 90% of the things that we hear about Miss Britney are true so my support lies solely in the listen-ability of her next album. I do agree that she, perhaps, should have selected a more flattering outfit. This one was not a good choice, two things- cardio, stylist.

Sad, Sad, Sad. Silverman made it even MORE sad. You could tell everyone in the audience was totally uncomfortable!

I'm both, molly and for actually giving way to "blame everybody but britney"..and the other for being a fan... and for all those fans and idolator...BRITNEY SPEAR SCREWED UP BY HERSELF.... it was not sarah silverman... it was not mtv... it was not criss angel... it was not k-fed....MY GOD for sure it wasn't K-FED!!! the woman has made HORRIBLE HORRIBLE choices in her life and SHE needs to pay for the consequences...with respects to Sarah's jokes...they were funny! Britney doesn't even take care of her boo boos why do you think she's such a target??? If she wanted no media attention...she has the money ($700,000 a month) to DISSAPEAR and really "comeback" kick ass! SHAME ON HER AN HER ENABLERS...POP..YOU'RE ONE OF THEM!!!

First of all, if you are not in your "best shape" don't wear that for a big fat show. Then she looked down all the time, she looked insecure, and afraid, like as if she knew everyyyyyyyyone was waiting for her performance ajd she was screwing it up too bad
PP-RAW PP-RAW 10 years
she needs people to tell her not to do anything that she thinks she should do. she makes nothing but bad decisions and bad choices.

People are saying she looked fat because she made a bad wardrobe choice. It's about dressing to put the spotlight on your assets, not on body parts which have seen fitter days. Her wardrobe also highlighted the fact that she was not in perfect physical condition (which, you need to be in order to wear that). The outfit made her body parts that need the most toning (love handles, thighs, backside) just jump out - it made her look fatter than she probably is. Being called fat is the consequence of choosing to wear that on stage. If I'd wear that in public and people would tell me I look fat, they'd be right! Ergo, I wouldn't choose to wear that in public. She should have chosen better as well.

Tiabia: I wasn't defending her performance at all. I think even if she'd shown up in a better outfit and dancing awesome moves, it could've been good. Although... I guess if she'd been dancing like mad the past few months, it would be hard to keep any body fat at all. So, maybe more practice would have been the prescription for this ailing performance (all the way around). I know that she's living with the consequences of her own actions, but the girl needs a major intervention or this is going to end very unhappily.
tiabia tiabia 10 years general speaking terms, her body was fine...but as a performer, she was NOT in the shape that is required of her JOB!!! The least should could have done was step on stage with a banging body :oy:...SHE BLOWS

Okay, I am not going to defend her performance here, because the poor girl looked dazed and confused. It was too embarrassing to watch the whole thing. HOWEVER, for anyone saying that she's fat and that her abs look bad, that is ridiculous. Just because she doesn't look like she did when she was 15... wanting her to have some kind of pre-pubescent body only encourages pedophilia in our society. She looks like a woman... and besides the god-awful hair extensions and stupid outfit, I thought she looked good.
