Perhaps there’s hope for Britney Spears yet. If Us Weekly is to be believed (which it should always be without question), while on stage at the VMAs Britney saw footage of herself dancing about on stage, throwing her porpoise like body around as she listlessly staggered about, trying to remember if she gave a shit what the lyrics were while thinking about the chocolate chip peanut butter cheesecake pie she had already started hoeing into using only her hands before the show, and had a moment of self realization.
The gossip rag reports that she was freaking out backstage saying:
“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!’
Which, of course, she did. No news there. There are plenty of excuses and spin racing about the airwaves at the moment regarding Britney’s chronic failure to operate properly at the VMAs. In fact, here’s a conspiracy theory that I found posted on dlisted.com that attempts to explain what went wrong (because it’s THAT crucial that we know for SURE):
That she could actually see her muffin top the whole time is one of the more likely explanations for her crap performance. Sure, she was drunk for three days prior to flopping on stage, sure she didn’t rehearse and sure – she’s out of her mind with some kind of probably pretty pedestrian form of delusion or depression but actually having to stare at herself while on stage and on TV would have been a shockingly telling experience. For her.
For everyone else, it really didn’t seem like it was anything short of day to day life in terms of what Britney gets up to. Why the hell doesn’t she just sell up and move to France until this whole thing blows over. And she works off that back fat. [source]
