Britney Spears’ manager Larry Rudolph spoke with Ryan Seacrest of KIIS FM, who relayed their conversation on his show Monday morning (August 25). “Britney Spears will not be performing at the VMAs this year. I’m telling you officially and unequivocally,” Ryan Seacrest quoted Rudolph as saying. Rudolph added that Spears “is in the middle of recording her next album, which is going amazingly well, and was never supposed to perform at that show.”
