Is Britney too cool for school?
Today’s is TRL’s grand finale taping in New York City, and includes some of the biggest artists of our generation. Britney has yet to be confirmed.
Several weeks ago, a source revealed to BreatheHeavy.com that Britney was in talks to appear or perform on the finale, but due to scheduling conflicts it may never happen. “Britney and her management have been in talks for her to perform on TRL’s finale on November 16th,” the source revealed. “MTV and their casting directors have picked the date in November specifically for Britney so she could appear, and co-inside with the album release a few weeks later.”
In addition to this, a Los Angeles based ad agency company, who are funding part of the TRL grand finale, also claims Britney IS performing at the finale special on November 16th in an exclusive statement to BH:
“MTV came into our offices and presented upcoming programming and indeed, confirmed from the MTV Representatives themselves that Britney will not only be appearing, but performing on the Finale,” says the source to BreatheHeavy. “Essentially, the information was divulged to us to get us Advertisers to sponsor the show.”
MTV still claims there is a big surprise announcement in store saying: “And stay tuned for a very big TRL announcement.”
Unless she takes a direct flight from Kentwood to New York City right now (which is very possible), it’s not happening. Cross your fingers!
UPDATE: “We actually do have something with Britney, but I can’t exactly say what it is,” he said.
An MTV rep tells TVGuide.com that Spears is “not going to be there” live at the New York studio in Times Square for the closing ceremony. But how about a pre-taped segment?
“That’s not confirmed, but it has been discussed,” Melissa Barreto said.
UPDATE 2: Justin Timberlake was the final square. No Britney so far…
