RE: The VMA's/Britney Spears
The note that follows is my strongly worded email to MTV.
You really faked us all out didn't you? As I turned on my television last night in anticipation of seeing Britney's comeback performance I was impressed with you all for giving her a second chance. Little did I know that it was all a big fat farce!
As you know, Britney did not perform and for those of us expecting a song, a glimmer something we (I) were sorely disappointed. I know that you never said she was going to sing but you led us to believe (and you know that you did) while touting her as the artist that was opening the show; that she would be on stage dancing and singing.
As for the rest of the show, there is no easy way to say this; it sucked! The performances were lackluster and the host (my God where did you find him?) was crass, without being funny, and just looked dirty. After about half the show I had had enough and changed the channel back to Sunday Night Football.
In conclusion just note that if you screw with your viewership we get mad and retaliate. I will not watch the VMA's again and see no reason to participate in the farce that once was Music Television. As for Britney, she deserved a second chance to show what she could or could not do and you all failed.
