Who will accompany Britney Spears to this year’s MTV Video Music Awards, now that she’s split with Justin Timberlake? The answer seems to be that Saturday Night Live’s Jimmy Fallon will be doing double duty as host of the VMA’s and as Britney’s escort. Word from Britney’s camp is that Fallon has been smitten with the songbird for quite some time, ever since her first solo appearance on SNL back in 2000. But Jimmy bided his time and when Britney split from Justin, he made his move, and the two have been phoning and e-mailing like crazy. Everyone associated with Britney says that Jimmy “makes her laugh,” something she’s been needing lately after a rough year.
