“Britney started yelling at Kevin that she didn’t want the boys to watch because she felt her nearly naked body and provocative dance moves would be too much for them to see,” said her friend.

“Kevin fired back: ‘But you walk around the house naked all the time! What’s the difference?’”

While getting last-minute touchups to her hair and makeup, Britney dropped a bombshell – telling producers she couldn’t perform.

“Britney knew that her rehearsal hadn’t gone well. But it was 10 minutes before she was supposed to go on stage – and the MTV bigwigs had a fit!” a source revealed.

“They told Britney that if she didn’t go one, they’d sue her. So she agreed to go ahead.”

Kanye: MTV Exploited Britney for Ratings

Kanye: MTV Exploited Britney for Ratings
Kanye West blames MTV for Britney Spears’ less than stellar performance at the Video Music Awards. “Man, they were just trying to get ratings, and they knew she wasn’t ready and they exploited her,”

You know, I’m not a huge Kanye fan and his comments normally make me sick, but he is dead on here. It was a ratings ploy and it was obvious, especially when MTV denied 2-3 weeks ago that Britney would be appearing, even though she was in rehearsals to do so.  They got what they wanted since I can’t believe they would get higher ratings than last year if they didn’t have Britney.

Also, kudos to Justin Timberlake for 2 swipes at MTV for not playing videos anymore. Kind of makes that award show a little useless, no?

“She went to her hotel room and ordered a bunch of food and some frozen margaritas,” the spy said. “She came down, like, an hour later with a frozen margarita in her hand.”

When Spears preformed on Sunday, she stumbled a couple times and couldn’t remember the words she was lip-syncing. She covered her mouth at one point but by the end of the song had simply given up any pretense of singing.

“The dance number was spectacular – without her,” said our spy at rehearsal. “When the stand-in was rehearsing with the dancers, in the hours they were all waiting for her, it was amazing. Then Britney showed up and refused to do anything. The dancers were supposed to lift and twirl her in the air a few times, and that just wasn’t going to happen. The more complicated dance moves had to be erased because she couldn’t do them.”

Meanwhile, Spears was agitated because she didn’t like the outfit MTV had selected for her.

“MTV wanted her to wear a corset outfit. It would have looked great and covered a lot of things up, but she hated it and didn’t think it was sexy enough.”

Instead, Spears changed into a spangly bra-and-underwear outfit she’d brought with her that emphasized her weight gain over the last year.
