Ding Dang -- Brit's Cover Up Exposed!

9/8/2008 8:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Britney Spears opened the VMAs last night with the telltale sign of a notorious lip syncher -- completely covering her moving lips the entire time she opened the show.

That said, TMZ eats crow for declaring her career dead after last year's girthy performance. She ain't dead at all after bizarrely winning three awards and looking awfully hot -- minus the spaghetti weave.

It doesn't say she WAS lip-synching, it said holding the mic in front of her mouth was the sign of a notorious lip-syncher. In other words, she is so used to lip-synching, she holds the mic like she is, even when she isn't. It's a HABIT.

Wow did Britney ever lay an egg??? Britney should have quit when she was at her peak. Hurts me to watch her struggle. She needs to wrote a book or do charity work. Show Biz is long past for her.

Brit's wig stylist, the person who made-up her face and entire body, chose her dress and heels and medicated her deserve the awards.

Why does the world feel sorry for her?!?! Oh poor britney,she had such a bad year...
Ok first of all she brought every last bit of it on herself.All of it.
Yes,feel so sorry for her when she flashes her vaj every time she gets a chance or when she decides not to wear a bra when she CLEARLY needs it,or when she shaves her legs in a motel swimming pool,or when she shaves her head because she hears that Kevin is gonna ask her to give a hair sample to find out about all the DRUGS she's using,or when someone takes a pic under her dress that shows she has on no underware(yet again) and that she has more hair on her ass than effin bigfoot,or when she makes those nasty bathroom runs at gas stations wearing no shoes... yes feel very bad for her because she has it so bad.

She was not lip-synching! I thought she looked fabulous! She did great, though you could tell she was nervous. However, I was very disappointed that she didn't perform...but I was disapointed in the VMAs, period. They don't showcase any type of variety in music. They focus on pop, hip-hop and rap...not alternative, metal, etc. They did performances between commercial breaks or whatever. I think Britney and Kayne were the highlights this year. MTV really needs to revamp the VMAs, and stop using the possibility of Britney Spears showing up as a way to lure in viewers, because that's not going to sustain the show for much longer either.

Liek seriously TMZ.... wtf? She did amazing last night, and I was so proud she took home all 3 VMA's that she was nominated for. For the love of god, do not trash her anymore. She didn't lip sinc her WORDS. And the pre-show skit was really funny.

I really hate your website.. you used to be good, but this past year it has just gotten bad.

Jon, OMG, I went to that site.... her singing is just like always....non-existent. For her to be a famous singer is nonsense. America made her famous...how embarrassing for us....

18. Did no one else but me notice that she tried to say "25th anniversary" and she said "25th AnniverSITY"? That wasn't lip synching.

So, you'rte saying that this superstar can't even get one or two lines out without messing it up? What a joke! I agree with the idea that it's time for her to find a new career!
