As exclusively reported first (yeah I shamelessly just plugged myself... what of it), Britney will not be performing at the VMAs. It's OK Kim Vo we all make mistakes, just usually not quite as big.
Larry previously told Ryan Seacrest via email on his kIIs fm show: "Britney Spears will not be performing at the VMAs this year. I am telling you officially and unequivocally that BS will not be there." But in his second statement released, manager Larry Rudolph continues to deny allegations that Britney is taking the stage at the 2008 VMAs, but this time doesn't mention she will not attend as he had previously stated in the email to Seacrest:
"Contrary to media reports, Britney was never slated to perform on this year's VMAs," Larry said in his statement. "She's in the middle of recording her next album, which is going amazingly well, and her focus remains on the studio."
Britney has appeared in several promotional ads featuring host Russell Brand, and has been nominated 3 times for "Piece Of Me" including "Best Pop Video," "Best Female Video," and "Video Of The Year."
So she won't perform, but I'd love to see Britney announce the first set of nominees! The crowd would go nuts!
