Britney-Bot Gets First Public Appearance

Ok, so who saw last week’s Billboard Music Awards from Las Vegas?

If you were one of the lucky ones, you will have seen the 7-minute opening to the show by the Princess of Pop. In a mega-mash-up of her greatest hits, Britney took to the stage but like me, you may have noticed that all wasn’t as it seemed.

Have a look at the performance here first:

So, what did you notice? The overly used robotic movements? No! Are you CRAAAAA-ZY?

Britney-Bot as I am going to refer to her for the duration of this article seemed a little em, stiff! Although many of her diehard fans have said she was ‘back to her old self’, whatever that means, there are a minority questioning whether it was even her. Can your body really move like that?

Apart from Britney-Bot trying to hide her lips at every opportunity she could find (behind a pole, in her hair, with her hand and even with a larger than life microphone strapped to her face), she was not the same fluid, relaxed and confident performer from the 90’s that we all fell in love with.

At first I thought it was my TV jumping, then I thought it may have been the effect they were going for and then I realised, nope she is just like a pre-programmed pop star. It kind of reminded me of the N*Sync video for Bye,Bye,Bye where they are controlled by strings and trapped inside toy boxes.

After reading this, re-watch the performance and try to enjoy it without jittering along with Britney-Bot. The performance around her was amazing when I got my eyes refocused from her barely-there costume, body and the constant thought of ‘she is a robot, this cannot be a real person’.

The Princess of Pop is currently playing a sell-out run of shows in Las Vegas and if you fancy sitting through a 2-hour mime act who is outshone by her dancers and set, get yourself there now. And hitting us one more time, we have a brand new album coming soon from her, she has certainly got to work (b*tch).

We can still give her credit where it is due though, she certainly knows how to put on a show and ride on top of a giant sized guitar! Good work Britney-Bot.

  1. I’ve been browsing online more than 2 hours today, yet
    I never found any interesting article like yours.
    It’s pretty worth enough for me. In my view, if all website owners and bloggers made good content as you
    did, the net will be a lot more useful than ever before.
