Spears to open MTV awards
- 7 September 2007
Fallen pop princess Britney Spears will make her long-awaited comeback at the MTV Video Music Awards this weekend.
The singer will open the awards ceremony in Las Vegas, performing her new song Gimme More. The track is from her new album, which is due to be released on November 13.
A statement from MTV read: “After weeks of mind-blowing media speculation, MTV confirms today that Britney Spears will be opening the 2007 MTV Video Music Awards.”
The 25-year-old, who has two children, has made regular appearances in salacious tabloid gossip pages for her tumultuous lifestyle. Low points include an umbrella attack on a car, attending rehab and shaving her head.
MTV described the appearance in Sunday’s show as her “long awaited comeback”.
