As Britney wiggled awkwardly on the stage for ‘GMA,’ all I could think about was the old Britney’s killer moves! Will she ever come back?
Don’t get me wrong, I love Britney Spears! I’d dance on my bed for hours in middle school practicing my “Hit Me Baby” moves. But how in the world has Britney lost her amazing choreography? A Britney concert used to be the ultimate experience with pyrotechnics, intricate costumes and Britney’s enviable dancing skills. But during her GMA Spring Concert Series performance on March 29 I was incredibly disappointed.
Britney started with “Hold It Against Me” which I have been known to recently play on repeat. But watching Britney climb down those stairs so unsteadily brought a flood of memories that made me sad. This was Britney’s chance to shown the world she was back.
But watching her stumble through three songs at the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium in San Francisco looked more like a rehearsal! And clearly Enrique Iglesias felt the same way — he dropped out of touring with her this summer after the performance aired!
I absolutely love all of Britney’s songs off her new Femme Fatale album, which drops today. But is she just not taking these concerts seriously anymore? She might just be over it. Maybe she’s been on stage too long?
Britney was cast in the Mickey Mouse Club when she was just 10 and reached mega-fame at 16. She’s definitely come a long way since her public meltdown in 2007! Now she’s a mom-of-two we always see at her son’s Little League games.
Whatever — Britney appears to have lost that extra spark that set her apart. I will always love her music but I don’t know if she’ll ever be able to give performances as jaw-dropping as her early days.
