Britney Spears VMA Promo: A Tribute to Greatness

by at . Comments

Britney Spears will be honored, and appearing, at the 2011 MTV Video Music Awards. The network has released a special promo featuring the singer.

The 30-second spot melds the songs of Britney - looking happier and healthier than we've seen her in forever - with Janet Jackson's "Rhythm Nation" and Madonna's "Everybody" as dancers in vintage Spears attire around her.

There's also a nod to Michael Jackson, if you can spot it:

The VMAs air Sunday, August 28. What does this sexy, semi-cryptic Britney Spears preview mean? Follow the jump for a behind-the-scenes look:

Britneys' father proved that he is a good conservator and perfect guardian.I think it is also essential step for Britneys' further progress. http://bit.ly/pPPo3z

I'm not that big of a fan of her music (nothing personal), I do acknowledge that she is as big as they come in terms of what a pop star is supposed to be. She has the drive, the charisma, the energy and apparently the strength to pull through some not so great times and still make it big. For that I commend her, and I'm happy that she's being rightfully honored. Guessing she'll be around for at least another decade. Best Wishes!

Britney deserves nothing but success and praise. She makes the VMAs. Without her they suck. Nobody can deny that she is and always has been an amazing performer. Star to her core.

Britney Spears Quotes

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.

MTV has long played an important role in my career. How can I not be there to kick off their 25th VMAs?
