R.I.P. Britney Spears' Career (1999-2007)

by at . Comments

It was a hell of a run, one that began with an adorable Catholic school girl teasing her way into our hearts in the "Baby, One More Time..." video.

But Britney Spears' career officially came to an end this evening.

There's nothing left in the tank. Leading off tonight's MTV Video Music Awards, Britney Spears "sang" her new single, "Gimme More." She lip-synched it (badly), which would have been okay had there been any semblance of dance moves or theatrics. Not so.

All we saw tonight was a limp, uninterested, uninspired Britney Spears, lacking the pizzazz, energy, choreography and all-out hotness that made her famous.

It's a sad day when a performer as dynamic as Spears can no longer dance or even pretend to sing her own songs. But that day is this day. So weak.

Even that body is reduced to a shell of its former self, clearly showing signs of two births. Host Sarah Silverman even joked, "Have you seen Britney's kids? They're so cute! Almost as cute as that hairless vagina they popped out of!"

Not to worry, though. With that outfit she sported tonight, Spears served notice that she's ready for the next phase of her career... Cinemax. Late night.

I miss it here so much! I love it so much! It makes me it's kinda like bittersweet coming here because I used to live here for two years. And when I come here, it's like, man, I wish I had my apartment here still.
