So, the devastating repercussions of Britney Spears’ VMAs performance are being felt daily in the celebrity world, with new details emerging all the time.
We’re piecing together the events leading up to Britters’ dodgy comeback – which hasn’t been so hard, as it seems she left a trail of destruction in her wake. One source said the singer arrived in Las Vegas for rehearsals three and a half hours late, causing MTV’s production team to “freak out”.
If that wasn’t bad enough, instead of getting straight down to business, Britters went to her hotel room and ordered “a bunch of food and some frozen margaritas”. When rehearsals finally did go ahead, said the source, Britney kept forgetting the words, couldn’t pull the off the more challenging dance moves (some had to be dropped) and rejected MTV’s costume suggestion, settling for her own choice – the unflattering bra and knickers combo. Apparently the dancers were so worried, “they were texting pals, asking them to pray for them”.
The next day, before she was due to go onstage, La Spears went into a crazed tantrum because she didn’t like her hairdo. An MTV insider said: “The scene in the dressing room before the show was one of absolute blind panic. She knew she hadn’t rehearsed enough and was going to mess up the whole show and possibly her career - then she saw her hairdo and it was the final straw. She went into a wild rage and started lashing out at everyone - including her stylist.”
What to do? Call the doctor, of course, for some prescription drugs. “Britney took enough to floor an elephant,” the source continued. “They calmed her down - but were clearly too effective.”
Everyone, it seems, has had something to say about the troubled popstar’s performance. Tori Amos, however, went as far to sing a song about Britney’s plight, during a concert in Australia on Tuesday:
“Britney, they set you up,
But you drank from their cup.
Britney, they set you up,
Oh, but this is what it looks like, love,
This is what is looks like
When a star falls down.”
