Jeers For Britney Spears's VMA Performance

I wanted to love you, Brit. I really did.

Britney Spears took the stage at the MTV VMAs and performed her brand new single, "Gimme More." The performance was so hyped. "This is going to be the greatest comeback in music history," some said, as I hoped. Britney was said to be working with her new best pal, illusionist Criss Angel, to create a show stopping performance filled with tricks that would have us "ooohing" and "ahhhing" all the way to our computers, to download Brit's new album.

But there was no show stopping performance, there were no illusions, and there will be no comeback. Britney seemed like she was barely alive during her lackluster lip-synching debacle. As I was watching her, I felt that embarrassing feeling you get when you watch an R-rated movie with your parents. I wanted to hide my eyes -- or pretend like I wasn't actually seeing what was on the screen. I almost thought she was kidding.

Then it was over and I was left speechless and sad. It sucked. Plain and simple. I wanted to love it, Brit, but I really, really didn't.
