I am a freaking kiddy school girl right now. This story just made my day. MTV has just announced that the following people will be performing in the 2011 VMA Britney Spears Tribute: Madonna, Lady Gaga, Katy Perry, Nicki Minaj and Janet Jackson . Demi Lovato & Selena Gomez are apparently in this tribute, but they clearly are not of the star caliber of the aforementioned women.
This is the most epic (gay) tribute of my lifetime. I haven’t been as excited for the VMA’s since Britney’s “Gimme More” trainwreck performance, and before that, the Madonna tribute with Christina, Britney & Missy Elliot. Speaking of which, Gomez & Lovato are included over Spears’ former Mickey Mouse club rival, Christina Aguilera? Ouch. I wonder if they asked her and she declined or if Xtina was just completely Xcluded.
Katy Perry will be singing “Oops! I Did It Again“, LadyGaga will fittingly take on “Circus“, while Ke$ha and Nicki Minaj will take on “Gimme More“. Janet Jackson will be taking, “I’m A Slave For You,” Selena Gomez will be singing “Baby One More Time,” and Demi Lovato will be singing “Toxic“. Britney is said to be wrapping things up with “Hold It Against Me & “I Wanna Go“. So what about Madonna? The 53 year old will be presenting Britney with a “Lifetime Achievement Award”. I hope she ends up actually performing as well.
I’m sure there’s more to it. VMA performances are always full of surprises.
