"It's Britney, bitch..." - BS

We have all heard the public coronation of Britney Spear's performance on the 2007 MTV Video Music Awards as "career ending," "horrible" and "disgusting."

Well, you know what, I kind of liked it.

Obviously not at first. And probably not the second time. But during about the third or fourth time I watched it on YouTube, it began to eerily grow on me. Like a lot.

Maybe it's the song. It is pretty catchy. Produced by Danjahandz (more commonly known as Danja) who is actually Timbaland's protege. Hes helped Timbo with such hits as Justin's
"Sexy Back," "My Love," and "What Goes Around...", Nelly Furtado's "Promiscuous," and Timbo's own "Give It To Me," and "The Way I Are." He has also solely produced DJ Khalid's "We Takin Over."

Anyway, the point is Danja is really good, as is this song. But it is more than that for why I like Brit's performance.

Maybe it's the way she so averagely walks around the stage. No real movement except for dance steps circa middle school prepubescent Bar Mitsvah moves. There is something there I like (no pedorass). I just don't think its that bad. It really fits the song.

And Britney's not fat. She's not thin but she's not that fat. I mean I would've worn something else, but for the most part, she's ok. She just reminds me of girls I have hooked up with and that is not something Britney Spears is supposed to do.

Anyway, as much of a trainwreck that this performance is supposed to be, I can't give it that title. Sorry.

It definitely is not a bad performance the way people have been clamoring since the VMAs.

She's not the Britney she was before:
young, far below her natural weight, and happy-go-lucky. She has clearly had her confidence shaken since all that nonsense she went through. She wasn't all there in that performance. That being said, it was as good a performance as your AVERAGE VMAs performance.

P.S. DAT... She reminds of girls you've hooked up with? Really? Were they at least GOOD people? Funny? Smart?

No. They weren't. They were kind of like Britney.

the video doesn't work. and neither does the 3rd michael jackson video. Mike is the best though. I realized how hard it must be as a perfomer to not emulate him. He's the gold standard.
