Rarely has a live performance been as universally panned and ridiculed as when Britney Spears took the stage at last night's MTV Music Video Awards.
Spears is reportedly reeling after her first major public appearance in four years, in which she donned silver and black sparkly underwear and knee-high black boots to mail in her new single "Gimme More."
Fans were in hysterics, critics claimed she looked disinterested and unfit, and her fellow celebrities seemed to agree.
Speaking backstage after the event, the great Akon said, "That could have been better. She needed to focus more. She looked nervous and I think the pressure got to her."
Common added, "I think it didn't seem like she wanted to be there. There wasn't any spark, it didn't feel like life was there."
Kanye West said, "I have no words."
As if that weren't enough, Britney also had to endure withering remarks from comedian Sarah Silverman during the ceremony.
She sarcastically remarked, "Was that incredible? Britney Spears. Wow. She is amazing. She is 25 years old and she's already accomplished everything she's going to accomplish in her life. It's mind-blowing."
Silverman also called Brit's sons, Sean Preston and Jayden James, "the most adorable mistakes," and brought up the fun topic of Britney's shaved crotch.
The New York Post may have summed it up best: "[Britney Spears] jiggled like Jell-O and didn't seem to care that she danced like she had a load in her pants."
