Buzz has slowly been building in recent weeks suggesting Britney Spears may perform an encore to her trainwreck performance at the 2007 Video Music Awards this year.
Why would she do such a thing, you may ask? Both parties could benefit from the gig. While it could offer Britney the comeback performance she so desperately needs, MTV would rake in killer ratings whether or not she shines or crumbles. (Brit’s performance at the Vegas show last year was one of the most-talked about moments of 2007 and helped draw 7.1 million viewers.)
Adding fuel to the fiery gossip? In a phone interview with the AP today, Van Toffler, president of MTV Networks Music Group, said: “Everyone deserves a second or third chance, right?”
This year’s MTV Video Music Awards will air live on September 7 from L.A.
