Can Britney Make A Comeback?

Uhh, judging by her weak performance opening for the VMA tonight, I'm going to have to go with a big fat no.

I cannot even believe that I stopped what I was doing at 9pm to check out her big promoted opening act. It was disappointing. This is the same chick who has been known to totally steal the show with duets with Madonna, slinking around with a snake on her neck, stripping down to a close to nude ensemble showcasing a rock hard body and just really giving her all. Tonight, however, it was obvious she was not really giving us what she used to.

1) She lip synced. Sure she's done it before, but this time, I don't even think she had a real headset on. She didn't even attempt a live note.

2) I applaud her for getting her body in shape after 2 babies, but I honestly think it it wasn't toned enough to be as half naked as she was. We're used to seeing Britney's defined abs. I found it kinda embarrassing for her to be in such a revealing outfit and looking a lot less cut. Her dancers looked better. Poor wardrobe choice.

3) The hair looked awful. We know her hair is very short due to her shaving it but those extensions were horrid and too obvious. This chick is banking $750K a month and the best her stylist could come up with were these yellow blond tracks and stripper gear. She could have paid me $1000 and I'd have done a better weave. She should talk to Beyonce's people.

4) What happened to the choreography. I'm not a fan of her music but Britney has always been a great dance in my book, normally hitting all her dance steps but there were several times she seemed unbalanced in her high heel boots and overall lacked the prowess she usually has dancing. It was like she wasn't really into and and had missed some rehearsals.

5) The music, I'm sorry, it sucked. I can't even remember the hook but it was lame. In fact, I hated it. I don't know who produced it but its weak. And its opening line "Its Britney, bitch." What is wrong with her? This is a mother of 2 babies. Why try so hard to be this sex-crazed, bad ass? Why would you even present yourself in a way there would be inappropriate to your children? It's time to get past that, really.

Overall, all I saw was a stage full of dancers on poles looking like strippers and a confused Britney Spears faking vocals and trying to keep up with what dance moves she remembered over the lamest techno-dance track. It was poor.

And I'm disappointed. A comeback? She would seriously have to step it up a whole helluva lot better than that. Either that or focus on raising her boys.

Pick one.

I don't think she's ready for a comeback just yet. She needs to take some time out of the limelight to REALLY get herself together before she tries to stage a comeback. Give the public some time to forgive her for her craziness. Clearly, she has not put all of her Hot Ass Mess ways behind her.

Girl I can't even express how mad I was about that atrociousness on her head! I did however find the reaction of the audience members to be pretty hilarious, particularly Chris Brown's.

I knew that it was going to be bad, but damn. I was waiting for her to literally fall flat on her face. She should have never, never, ever thought about getting on that stage. What a waste!!!
