What the Hell Has Happened to Britney Spears


I must start off by saying that I adore Britney Spears, I was devastated to see her fall and celebrated when she finally bounced back but, the question I keep asking myself is, "Did she really bounce back, or is it just our (the fans) wishful thinking?"
The other night at the Billboard Awards I watched aimlessly as her first performance with Rihanna was nothing short of mediocre.  Spears came on stage about 2 minutes into Rihanna's performance of "S&M", she slithered around a pole for a second, then returned to the stage for a pillow fight in which it seemed as though the pillow Britney was toting was far to heavy for her to lift since she barely raised it above her waist.  I was not impressed.

The rest of the 3 hour show was nonstop hype of Britney's next performance with one of my favorite gals out right now, Nikki Minaj.  So, I like everyone else in the world, stayed up way past my bedtime with high hopes that Britney circa 2001 would bust out with some fantastic dance moves, high energy, and deliver a super sexy duet.  But, no.  Instead Britney came out in full costume, looking very svelte I might add, and sang around 30 to 40 seconds of her latest song, "Till the World Ends."  Or should I say, lip synced.  And, I was a little disappointed with my girl Nikki Minaj, not very entertaining.

As for Britney, she will be in Vegas on June 25th at the MGM Garden Arena for her Femme Fatale Tour with Nikki Minaj but, I must ask, with the outrageous ticket price is it worth paying to see a robotic type performance, even if it is by one of pops greatest icons?  I would love to hear your thoughts on the Billboard performance...
