It's Just Bad Dance, Y'All

Pink India Ink made a very good point in her last post about the Brit disaster on the VMAs this past weekend.

I'm with her as far as the whole leave her body alone thing. I mean, the Momma has had two okay - she looks a helluva lot better than some of the soccer moms I've seen sporting too small and age inappropriate outfits.


I was a performer in another life and damn. If you have THAT venue and it's being toted as a COMEBACK...get your sh*t in a pile Brit. That was shameful! Doddering, uncommitted, tentative, half-hearted, unsure, lazy, faltering. If your routine was changed ala last minute and you felt you needed more rehearsal, then heft your starpower weight and call an all-nighter. Or get a GD video of the steps, kiss your kiddies goodnight, put on your track, and Work On It.

Here's what I think: She doesn't want to do this anymore.

And if so, then spare us all the hype and excuses and just hang up your Go-Go boots. Many a star has made many a graceful exit. Obviously it's too late for you, so just put your frozen Margarita down, say your sorry and bow out now.

Huh. I guess Tiffany lost the battles but, ultimately, won the war.

Coulda been so beautiful....

Amen, Lollie. That's what a normal body looks like Hollywood, so suck on it. But she did look a little like she'd just woken up from a nap. You may be right, and she should just get another line of work.

I've never,ever,ever thought what Britney Spears did could qualify as dancing.

She's so spastic it's scary.

I saw it and didn't once think about her body. I guess I thought she looked fine. I'm kind of appalled that so much fuss is being made over how "fat" she looked. If that's fat then I'm a manatee.
But the performance? Sheesh, Brit. Put a smidge of effort in or hang up your sparkly bikini.
That's what is called "phoning it in", my dear.
