Sure, Britney may have told USA Today that she thought her performance on the VMAs was “good,” but any living creature with eyes who saw the thing knows better - including Brit. Which is why shortly after her crapalicious appearance, the excuses started rolling. Sarah Silverman’s comments upset Brit right before she went on! The heel on her stiletto boot was busted! She fired her hairdresser right before the show started!
We’ve come up with a few more excuse for Brit to use – after all, with a performance that bad, you need someone or something to blame:
Have any other good excuses that Britney could use? Post ‘em for the starlet below!

Boo hoo hoo. Gwen Stefani apparently let the tears flow backstage at her most recent fashion show in NYC this week. A source revealed:
“Before Gwen went out on stage at her L.A.M.B. fashion show, she was sobbing uncontrollably backstage. When asked what was wrong, she just said she was so overwhelmed. She talked about how she used to sew with her mother, and now [that] she has a baby, fashion is what matters to her.”
Funny, we were busy crying that day too – over how many stupid celebrities think they can design clothes just because they’re famous. Now that seems a little bit more sob-worthy. [NYDN. Image: Getty]
Quite a few episodes of Rock of Love have passed since we got to revel in the inherent entertainment of trashed girls on film.
And for that reason, this episode feels like home!
Little Miss Modesty Avril Lavigne is giving Kanye West a run for his money. With bombast that’s usually found inthe hip-hop world, Avril’s telling the world how giving she is. In a recent interview with Q Magazine, she refers to Hurricane Katrina, (which devastated an entire metropolis and left thousands homeless) as “the hurricane thing [that] happened.” To evidence her charitable nature, Avril filled six whole boxes of things from her closet and told her assistant to “take it to Katrina!” Let’s put aside the grammatical error that would prevent her assistant from taking anything to a ruinous natural disaster and concentrate on this question — what the hell are the brave survivors of Hurricane Katrina going to do with studded belts and Manic Panic hair dye? Avril also evoked the “I’m Rubber, You’re Glue” line of reasoning when she called everyone who dislikes her “losers.”

Here’s your first look at the men who will compete for the affection of Miss New York, come Oct. 8, when I Love New York 2 premieres on VH1. We’ll be unveiling individual shots of all the guys in their respective groups (the Mama’s Boys, the Online Casting and the Regular Casting) all week, but for now you can feast your eyes on the group shot (click to enlarge) and some outtakes below.
And yes, that’s a little person standing at New York’s side. He’s one of her potential suitors and he goes by the name Midget Mac. Seriously. No, really.

It all started with some ratty extensions…
…and it only got worse from there. Is this the VMAs or a Rob Zombie movie?
Still too hard to tell.
Britney’s trainwreck more or less set the tone for the rest of last night’s show, which was supposed to be a new-and-improved version of the Video Music Awards. Mostly, it just felt schizophrenic, with its performers scattered through a series of “parties” at the Palms Hotel in Las Vegas. Though less ceremonious in general (gone away, for the most part, were performer introductions, thankfully) and about as short as you could possibly expect an awards show to be (just over two hours, double thankfully), this year’s VMAs was a series of quick cuts and excerpted performances. It felt like a parody of MTV and the short-attention-span generation the network supposedly spawned. The awards show is what would happen if ADHD got ADHD. (And what’s worse — they gypped us out of what was undoubtedly the best part of the night: the Kid Rock-Tommy Lee tussle.)
After the jump, we recount some highlights. And by “highlights,” more times than not, we mean “lowlights.”
Britney wasn’t the only one bombing this weekend. On Saturday Foxy Brown received a year-long prison sentence for violating her probation a bunch of times. The rapper – who is allegedly three months pregnant – apparently burst after hearing her latest sentence. “I’m willing to do whatever I need to do to change,” she pleaded with the judge. “I realize that’s not where I want to be. It’s humbled me in ways I never imagined.”
Well, jail will probably humble you further Foxy! Even the judge didn’t buy her tears, calling the rapper “a great actress” for her court performance. She should seriously look into doing a couple movies when she gets out of the slammer – in 363 days. [E Online. Image: Getty]
