Please Britney, don’t hurt ’em

    Britney SpearsOK, anyone who missed Britney Spears’ certifiably “toxic” performance last night, har har, here is a still viable link. It’s Britney, bitch! Just for fun, here’s a highlight of quotable reviews of Britney’s comeback performance a la Metacritic:

    “It was obvious Spears just wasn’t into her performance. You can pretty much see her give up. So much for a comeback.”
    –San Jose Mercury News
    “Voyeurs around the world were ready to see a fallen star back onstage. She didn”’t disappoint: she was awful. Visibly nervous, she tottered around the stage, dancing tentatively and doing nothing that sounded or looked like real live singing.”
    The New York Times
    [more:]”The poor thing wobbled through her moves while looking sad and a bit confused in her chosen “outfit” — a glittery bra and panty set. The over all effect was that of an out-of-shape hooker with an inner ear infection.”
    –Seattle Post-Intelligencer
    “Dressed in sequined black underpants and bra, an out-of-shape Spears moved tentatively around the stage, getting totally outgrooved by her backup dancers and badly lip-syncing her way through the song whose main lyric was “Gimme, gimme, gimme, gimme.”
    Washington Post
    “She looked more like Edie Sedgwick in the post-lobotomy scenes of the underground movie “Ciao, Manhattan.”
    Los Angeles Times

    And because today is 50 Cent/ Kanye day here at Prefix, we should also mention that Mr. West wasn’t too happy with Britney’s performance, either.
