Britney Spears apparently isn’t feeling any ill will toward MTV after her disastrous performance at last year’s Video Music Awards.

The well-on-her-way-to-a-comeback pop princess will appear in a television promo for this year’s VMAs.

She shot the spot on Tuesday at the Paramount lot in Hollywood (the site of this year’s show) with first-time host, British bad-boy comedian and Forgetting Sarah Marshall star Russell Brand.

“It was mostly ad-libbed, with Russell asking her for advice about hosting the show,” a source tells me. “There’s also a 9,000-pound elephant in it, as in ‘the elephant in the room.’ “

So, does this mean Ms. Spears, who is up for two VMAs this year, will be performing on the big night when it airs live on Sept. 7?

A rep for MTV declined to comment on the possibility.
