MTV.com: No snakes. No same-*** kisses. No magic tricks. No skimpy outfits. OK, plenty of skimpy outfits. After all, it’s Britney, *****, right? With one of the most anticipated openings in VMA history, Britney Spears got the party started Sunday night (September 9) with a James Bond-meets-underground S&M club slither through her new single, “Gimme More.”
Opening with a close-up of the back of her head, Spears stared into the camera with the opening lines to “Trouble,” made famous by the ultimate Las Vegas legend, Elvis: “If you’re lookin’ for trouble, you came to the right place/ If you’re lookin’ for trouble, look right in my face.”
The camera panned out to reveal Spears decked out in acres of bling, including a black, jewel-encrusted bra and hot pants, black boots and nothing else. Sashaying in and out of dancers in skin-tight leather, Spears sang the refrain “Gimme, gimme more” as she literally stepped over the back of a male dancer and got intimate with another.
With images of chandeliers floating on the screen behind her mixed with silhouettes of women befitting the intro reel to a James Bond flick, Spears walked across the stage as her scantily clad dancers worked a series of stripper poles scattered throughout the room.
At least one VIP, 50 Cent, appeared to be enjoying the multimedia experience. And then, after all that hype, a relieved-looking Brit gave a shy smile, whispered “thank you” and exited.
