She practiced so hard for her ‘come-back’. MTV Awards gave Britney Spears the opening act slot, but she failed miserably. Producers convinced Spears to dump baby daddy, Kevin Federline- in exchange for a career re-boost. She lip-synced her way thru a disastrous performance, like a mime on crack. Fans were outraged!
US Magazine threw her under a bus: “She was also able to see video of herself throughout the auditorium.”
“She flipped out. She came running off the stage, yelling ‘Oh, my God, I looked like a fat pig! I looked like a fat pig!’ She was inconsolable.”
But it wasn’t the weight that stunned the crowd. It was Diddy’s competition defibrillator. Sean Combs apparently ‘partied’ with Brit- Brit until the wee hours of the morning, encouraging her to roll thru rehearsals, and sleep. Simon Cowell slammed the pop star.
“If I had been looking after Britney I’d have taken one look at her in rehearsals and I wouldn’t have allowed her on stage.
“It would have been worth pulling her off the bill – no matter what the cost – to save any chance she had of resurrecting her career.
He told The Sun: “She wasn’t ready for that show in every possible way.
“The song wasn’t right, the image wasn’t right and she just wasn’t rehearsed.
“If she had turned up and given that performance at the X Factor auditions then I wouldn’t have put her through to the next round.
“The problem she has now is that she could have killed her career. It’s difficult to come back from that performance, for a while at least.”
Spears hasn’t been back since. Nothing says “Has-Been” like People’s Choice voting you ‘Favorite Social Media Celebrity.’
And she didn’t even turn-up for that…
