Kim Kardashian may have been preparing to introduce Britney Spears ahead of Britney’s performance with rapper G-Eazy. The social media queen took to Snapchat to share a video with Britney, and exclaimed “it’s Britney, bitch” as the pair both pouted at the camera.
Kim Kardashian introduced Britney, whom she confessed she was “obsessed with” on Twitter. “And I see you guys guessing on who I am presenting….A little hint, it’s someone i am obsessed with!!!! LIKE OBSESSED!!!!! #VMAs”
Britney quickly responded, saying: “Can’t wait to see how hot you’re gonna look tonight! See you 10 seconds after!”
The pop icon returned to the MTV VMA stage for the first time in a decade to perform her new single “Make Me” last night. Dressed in a sparkly yellow leotard, Britney danced with a fair amount of the feline energy that made her the original VMAs phenom back in the early 2000s. She was joined halfway through the performance by collaborator G-Eazy.
The last time Britney performed at the MTV Video Music Awards was in 2007, when she famously flopped her performance of “Gimme More.” So, nine years later, it was good to see Spears back on the VMAs stage again, looking happy, healthy, and confident.
