"The 25th annual MTV Video Music Awards were full of those kinds of first, but perhaps the one people were looking forward to the most was the first VMA appearance by Spears since last year's notorious onstage debacle. And, to the delight of her fans, Spears knocked it out of the park, opening the show by repeatedly turning down some not-so-slick advances from "Superbad" funnyman Jonah Hill. Showing off some of her "How I Met Your Mother" comedy chops, Spears then shimmied to the stage, looking amazing in a silver, shimmering flapper dress, and welcomed the crowd to the show."
"The pop star made a triumphant return to MTV's Video Music Awards, winning three Moonman, including the night's big honor, video of the year, for her hit "Piece Of Me..." She looked a little nervous at first, but proved to be in fighting form in a vintage silver Versace mini-dress."
"Britney Spears returned to the MTV Video Music Awards in a major way tonight (Sept. 7) in Los Angeles, getting the last laugh after a disastrous 2007 appearance by winning the first three awards of her career: female video, pop video and video of the year for "Piece of Me.." she was a picture of professionalism and poise this time around, as she introduced the show and appeared in a comedic pre-show sketch with actor Jonah Hill."
"The red carpet of the Video Music Awards was its own kind of eye-popping spectacle, but during the show I couldn't take my eyes off Britney Spears... She looked fab, kept it together and seems like she's getting her career back on the good foot."
"She kicked off the show with Superbad's Jonah Hill in a pre-taped skit, where he tried to teach her some relaxation techniques... After the segment, Spears, in sexy, sparkly halter dress, walked on stage as her hit "Baby One More Time" blared. The audience stood and applauded."
"Tonight was also the night for another Brit, the comeback queen herself, Britney Spears. The Britster went three for three, winning Female Video of the Year, Best Pop Video, and the big kahuna, Best Video of the Year."
"The pop singer, whose career has been overshadowed in recent years by a litany of personal woes, took home the awards for video of the year, best pop video and best female video, all for the tune "Piece of Me..." But the tabloid target seems to have avoided any calamities in recent months. While she puts her life back together, her ex-husband has full custody of their two sons, and her father and a lawyer have taken control of her business affairs. "
