Britney Spears: 2011 MTV VMAs Tribute!

Britney Spears laughs as she watches her tribute live at the 2011 MTV VMAs on Sunday (August 28) at the Nokia Theatre L.A. Live in Los Angeles.

The 29-year-old pop princess was honored with the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award and viewed a dance tribute to her most famous songs including “Baby One More Time,” “Oops!… I Did it Again,” “Crazy,” “Toxic,” “Circus,” “Me Against the Music,” and “Hold it Against Me.”

While introducing her, Lady Gaga, dressed as Jo Calderone, said, “She taught us all how to be fearless, and the industry wouldn’t be the same without her.”

    That was no tribute. It lasted only 2 minutes. Why not more time. It sucked.

    This was a tribute that looked like it was thought up of at the last minute. Not fair. Hopefully she will get a proper tribute somewhere else down the line.

    She reminds me of a robot. Someone who does whatever is asked for her. Why does she deserve a tribute because of that? Her music is trendy, nothing original. Maybe it was fun when I was 12 years old, but not any more.

    @camillus: Mtv did the same thing to madonna it was so short. they really should have people who worked with her or close to talk a lil about the artist something like billboard did for beyonce. Maybe have other celebs perform. it was way to short.

    it was supposed to be britney’s moment, not gaga, she ruined it ¬¬ I think somebody else should’ve spoken, like madonna or someone closer to her

    That was a VERY SHORT “tribute” & y didn’t they allow her to have a proper speech then cut to commercial instead of turning it into a Beyonce a thing. SUCKED BIGTIME!

    That tribute sucked! Britney is an awesome performer and she deserved more! Mtv failed trying to do this tribute! The only great part was her acceptance speech with Gaga

    DBfan93 Says:

    The tribute was not that good but Britney looked stunning! I’m so happy for her!

    That tribute was disappointing. Not only was it too short and not special at all, but Lady Gaga had to hog the spotlight. LEAVE THE REAL PRINCESS ALONE.

    Anyone who does not understand why Britney got the award probably did see MTV when they actually played videos. I’m not a Brit fan but I know that MTV owes their success to MJ to start and ended off the backs of Britney Spears, NSYCN, Backstreet Boys, and Christina Aguilera. All of them deserve awards from MTV. This is not the Grammys, it’s MTV who milked these kids so much that Carson thinks Britney actually owes him.
    I liked the tribute. Tributes now and day are so sort and honestly unless you’re a legend I say keep it that way. Also, we all know Brit is not into this mess anymore…they are lucky she showed up lol.

    #MTVFAIL i like to call it. First off Lady Gaga “performance” was horrible they should have had Katy Perry or Rihanna open, Adele -made me cry, Britney tribute?!!! WHAT ” Britney Tribute ” for a person who is the VMAs deserved better than that rubbish!!! SO MANY things were bad just to name a few..You gave her a MOON MAN that was supposed to be a “Vanguard award” you MADE HER, not Gaga BRITNEY present the next performer?!!! REALLY! I LOOOOOOVE BEYONCE, but that is a SHAME and very shady on MTvs part to do that! PERIOD., Pitbull was great, Chris Brown was unique, Beyonce (aw Baby Beh) and Bruno to sing a song Amy covered not one of her own songs-REALY?! they couldnt get Adele or Xtina to perform I dunno REHAB or BACK TO BLACK? This years MTV VMAs were ALL hype no substance. My annoyance for lady gaga has gone from 70% to a full blown 100% she didnt let Britney have her moment or even talk for her own award!!!

    it looked like “britney tribute” was an opening for Beyonce performance. that is a shame and i feel really bad for britney because not only did gaga not let her talk but the mtv scripted to where she is presenting and saying all these nice things what i thought was for britney turned out to be for beyonce. thats a shame
