Could it be? Will Britney Spears take time out from fighting for her kids to perform the coveted opening number at the MTV Video Music Awards? E!Online's gossip guru, Marc Malkin, says that a liitle birdie told him that Brit may just be the show's kick-off performance. It wouldn't be a new gig for Britney (remember the Britney/Madonna/Christina Aguilera kiss? I know you do), but, if done right, it could certainly give Britney the credibility she needs to get back into the good graces of the music biz. A rep for MTV would not confirm or deny the Britney rumors, but just the thought makes me giddy. maybe she can use Sean and Jayden as backup dancers? That would be sooooo cute, y'all!
