Britney Spears Fumbles The Ball

Mary Huhn of the New York Post blasted Britney Spears’ performance for the NFL Kickoff Live event on Thursday. Huhn writes, “Sure, she wants to distance herself from *NSYNC’s Justin Timberlake, her ex-beau, but to be completely out of sync is going too far. Spears, sporting shoulder-length blond hair and encumbered by a useless handheld microphone, couldn’t even make her dance steps shine during the mini-concert at the National Mall in Washington, D.C.”

    I was pretty disappointed by that performance. It didn’t seem very rehearsed.

    I hope Britney listens to at least some of these criticisms…that performance was really bad…i wish she would sing live more too…she didn’t put any effort into her dance moves…she performed like she was tired and didn’t want to be there… hit the dance studio and work on making your voice stronger (if you don’t have confidence to sing live).

    yeah Britney’s performance was kinda bad. She didn’t seem to embrace her own “dance moves” and even her own song, which seemed to repeat on and on and on about dancing on the floor and stuff. Her background dancers had more energy than her, that’s kinda sad. I don’t know why she thinks that taking off her pants and revealing cutesy panties (or whatever that thing was) is a substitute to being the ‘talent’ of her whole performance. I wish she can stop doing that. I don’t mind her doing it sometimes, but the more she always has to do another strip tease act to awe her audience, the more it makes me wonder how much confidence she has for herself and her own ‘dancing’. I know she’s loves Madonna, and might be continuously expressing her sexuality in reflecting Madonna’s past ambitions, but Madonna herself didn’t do many of the controversial stuff in the past to just be a sideline of shock and awe without showing any real talent. Madonna shaped and reshaped her music and music videos with a passion, a message, and a meaning, revealing some things to the world that we haven’t seen before. She made sexuality mysterious, artistic, beautiful, heartbreaking, melancholy, sophisticated, dangerous, and breathtaking. So if Britney wants to be like Madonna (which I heard her say herself many times on MTV), she just needs to be more creative with herself. And if she wants to take off her pants all the time on stage, at least make a message out of it. Maybe then people would see that she’s not only sexy, but is very talented and creative too.

    I think her dance moves weren’t their best because she hurt her foot. I was disappointed in the performance too… I was hoping she wouldn’t lip-sync and actually show the world that she is talented.

    Jeez have a little faith people. maybe she wants to save all her energy for something better. I did I recall the the NFL wanted Britney to perform and not some other artist. why are you people so negative. Aretha Franklin lip singed and she doesn’t get bombarded.

    When are you idiots going to wake up and smell the coffee? Jesus Christ, how many times must Britney make you lot look like fools before you start to see through her. Disappointed she lip synched? WTF did you expect? she can’t sing. her voice is awful. it always has been. she is awful. just like she was two years ago. get it through your thick skulls. I can’t believe you continue to make lame excuses for someone who continually mimes on stage. have some self respect.

    How do you know Aretha Frankling lip singed? Out of all the artists in the world I think she would be the LAST to lip sync any song. Even if she did, SHE IS ARETHA FRANKLIN. That’s why she doesn’t get bombarded, she’s a legend, and usually no matter what legends do, they are still the legend they are and always will. Just her being there is enough of an honor to see. I have faith in Britney, I hope that she will show the world that she’s something more than what people think. But if she wanted to save all the energy for something better, why didn’t she show something better? How much energy does it have to take to do simple choreography? Plus, if she didn’t have energy for it, she shouldn’t have performed in the first place? And other artists were also there too..(Aerosmith), so it’s not like she was the ONLY artist they wanted. Anyways, I know I’m being kinda negative, but at least it’s honest and clean, I don’t curse and crap to get my point out without an explanation. Britney will probably get stronger through all the criticism, so therefore, she will do alright, I hope.

    Somehow that doesn’t make any sense to me…. How much better can it get when millions of people are watching you live on TV? Isn’t that “better” enough? Aretha Franklin didn’t get bombarded because she doesn’t make a history of lipping! I’m mean hell, how old is she? She’s not necessarily young ya know… Holla!

    Her performance flat out sucked. Her dancing sucked, her dancers sucked, she didn’t sing(not that she ever does), and she brought her personal life with Justin in to it. How dare she disrespect and treat Justin like that, I don’t like Justin but that is so wrong. She must’ve never really ever loved him. She should stop telling the media to keep her private life out of the tabloids, because she’s the one that brings it up. Anyways I hope this is the end of Britney, judging by the performance and the new single she is so gone. If she manages to make another CD after the next one it will be a miracle. Becky

    When are you going to wake up and smell the coffee? it’s so obvious that your jealous of Britney and that your still bitter.. I won’t mention her name cause she isn’t worthy of being talked about.
