Britney Spears seems to think that illusion can cover up a lack of effort in her performance, preparation, and attitude. That might be how corporate executives get by, but that doesn’t make the grade when you’re a pop star. Here’s more:
Britney Spears didn’t end up working with Criss Angel on her VMA comeback performance, but her stage show was certainly full of illusions. Her lip-syncing was meant to give her the appearance of an actual singer, and her spray-on tan was supposed to make it look like she’d spent hours in the gym (as opposed to the bar).
â€œShe had an ab-defining spray tan preshow to create the illusion of more tone,â€ a source tells Us. Well, we know how that turned out.
I don’t know why no one suggested Britney use one of those six pack abs you get at the Halloween costume store. Plus a French maid outfit, an eye patch, and a plastic sword. She could have had a sword fight with all the dancers, and afterwards make them walk the plank. It was Las Vegas, and anything could happen, so you gotta think big.
Britney blew her chance to have a big comeback with the help of Justin Timberlake and Timbaland, when her ego grew too big. Timbaland says the collaboration with Britney would be:
"the best thing that ever happened" and would "help her out a whole lot." But he then dismissed the possibility, saying in so many words that Brit has become big-headed and had dissed him and Justin. "It’ll never happen. Nah. It could’ve, but it won’t."
Now Timbo has even more advice to give her about getting her career back on track. "She needs a story," he said. "She has no comeback story. That’s the problem. She has to have a team. She needs to come back with Justin doing records; [then we’d see headlines like,] ’She went back to her ex and she’s making smashes.’ [But instead she got] so big-headed and [was] like, ’Screw you, screw you, I don’t need nobody.’ "
So is there any chance for Spears to rectify the situation and possibly work with Timberlake and Timbaland? Yes, says the super-producer â€” if she apologizes.
"She should humble herself and make a phone call and say, ’I’m sorry.’ She knows what she’s sorry about," Tim said. "She needs to say, ’I was wrong,’ and it’ll definitely move forward. … That’s all she has to say."
More bad news for Britney. Her single Gimme More got on the Billboard Hot 100, but it is hanging at number 85. If this whole pop star thing doesn’t work for her anymore, Britney will probably start her own plus size fashion line. For women only.
