Britney Spears’ new single “Gimme More” isn’t such a bad song. The remix with TI is even better. Britney’s performance of “Gimme More” at MTV’s Video Music Awards, on the other hand, was really just… depressing.
In fact, the word “performance” is such a vast overstatement of what Britney did, I don’t even know what word I could put in its place to adequately describe what really happened. Is there a verb for “show up and look incredibly unenthused while lip-synching badly and occasionally walking to another part of the stage?”
Wearing practically nothing and throwing in the occasional bump & grind, Britney should, in theory, come off as a mesmerizing vixen. Instead, she just seems tired and almost resentful to be there, as if to say, “Sure, you can wake me up from my nap and make me do lame choreography, but you can’t make me like it.”
The last minute is particularly painful; at that point, the only thing Britney could do to make things more morosely lethargic would be to lie down and finish the song while chain-smoking and eating Cheetos.
Sexy Britney was fun. Crazy Britney was fun, for a while, at least. Sad, limp Britney? Not fun. Kind of a downer. Somebody get this girl a Red Bull and some love, STAT
