Britney Spears to Return to the VMAs?

Britney Spears

Unless you were under self-imposed media exile last year, you saw the avalanche of coverage following the appearance at the VMAs. Spears poorly performed “Gimme More” to seven million home viewers last year, though many more would witness her antics thanks to the streaming videos which cropped up everywhere. Will MTV really give her the chance to do it again?

President Van Toffler (MTV Networks Music Group) gave a somewhat tongue-in-cheek comment to the Associated Press that “everyone deserves a second or third chance, right?” But don’t take his comment too lightly. In a world where any press is good press, the mere promise of Spears at this year’s could create a whirlwind of media coverage. MTV likes press.

The Video Music Awards will air live on September 7, with performances being given from sound stages and rooftops. Right now, it isn’t certain whether Brit will actually perform - but it is certain will want her there for the sake of ratings alone.

I love Britney Spears, she was an amazing singer and well, I still listen to a lot of her songs. I remember last year when she performed, I was so hyped up about it but then, I was quite disappointed. As for Britney Spears returning this year for the VMAs…um, I really think a lot of people will doubt it, but I guess we’ll just wait and see. I think for the ratings though, it’ll be hard to say how the VMAs will do this year even without Britney Spears present!
