Britney Tried to Give "More," Audience Wanted Less

9/10/2007 1:02 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Click to return to TMZ.comBritney Spears aimed to bring the house down when she opened the MTV Video Music Awards, but instead she just looked like a house. A little too early for the skimpy outfits, perhaps?

The former Mrs. Federline sleep-walked her way through a critical performance of her new single, "Gimme More," and camera pans to stars like Rihanna, 50 Cent and Diddy showed the crowd wasn't really feeling it. Britney herself didn't look too enthused by the ordeal ... even seeming to forget the lyrics to her own song!

And where was the much-hyped collaboration with Criss Angel? Apparently, that was a disappearing act.

Um, Brit? Your career called ...

That was really, really bad considering she's such a seasoned performer. If you aren't going to really sing, then at least dance your ass off! She did neither.

I think she looked pretty good body wise, but her face said she wanted to be else where andy any where. I think she did the show because of pressure to prove she's still matters.

What was up with the weave?? She kept grabbing it like she was afraid it was going to fall off. Her manager de jour should be fired for letting her get up there.

I just feel awful for her...it's hard as hell I guess to feel comfortable doing a show like that after all these years...she probably should have waited awhile before doing an award show...NO amount of rehearsing in front of an empty arena could prepare her for that.
