The contrived and lingering kisses Madonna enjoyed with Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera at the MTV Video Music Awards demonstrate that the veteran pop singer is desperate to revive our waning interest in her, so says Sam Leith of the Telegraph.
He says, “In snogging them both, she confuses matters. Britney and Christina, when they were on the way up seven or eight years ago, were rivals. Now they have both been superseded by Beyonce Knowles. So they are vulnerable to getting involved in this sort of silliness – but too foolish to hold out for exclusivity. Madonna got her headlines.”
