MTV VMA Recap: Britney, Britney, Britney

I'm not ashamed to admit it (anymore, that is) — I was looking forward to Britney's VMA comeback. Was there ever anyone better positioned to shut the skeptics up for good? Well, unfortunately that didn't happen and most of us were sorely let down.

Now I'm no A&R music exec, so I'm really not in a position to critique her performance. Yes, as a fan and viewer it was lacking, but hey. I can (and will), however, speak on the presentation. Granted Ms. Spears has never been known for her fashion-forwardness, but really Britney? I mean, did she even try to hide the clip-in of her hair extension?

In the spirit of sisterhood, though, we are not going to rip Britney apart (in spite of her many, many blunders). Instead, let her mistakes be learning material for all of us as we review a few suggestions for a more polished look the next time.

#1. Hair is an investment. If you're going to rock extensions, they have to be good. The whole point is for them to look like your natural hair, so you're not doing yourself any favors if we can see where your mane ends and the addition begins. There's really no way around — get them done by a professional.

#2. Body shapers are your friend. We all need a little help sometimes and that's the beauty of Spanx — just slide into one (or a few) and voila, a smooth, sexy physique. Don't get me wrong, Britney is nowhere near overweight. She just wasn't bringing sexy back squeezed into those hot pants. 

So now I have to ask: What did you think of Britney's performance? Did she bomb as badly as everyone is saying, or were you just too distracted by the horrific hair extensions to pay attention? I will say, I think I kind of like the song, but the fishnets and the weave were too much for me.
