Are YOU ready Britney Army??!?!
It is going to be a very Spearitual Sunday! Executive producer Jesse Ignjatovic speaks to EW on Britney’s upcoming Video Music Award performance and reveals that Britney’s upcoming performance is something you’ve not seen her done before! Check out the interview below :
Britney Spears’ new album Glory is shaping up to be completely different from anything she’s ever released. Expect similar surprises when it comes to her performance at the MTV Video Music Awards this Sunday, where she’s slated to sing the lead single off Glory, “Make Me…” with G-Eazy.
“She’s not one to do the same thing she’s done in the past,” executive producer Jesse Ignjatovic tells EW. “It’s going to be something you’ve not seen her do before. It’s going to separate her from other performances.”
That’s no small feat considering the other stars slated to appear: this year’s VMAs will also feature a career-spanning medley from Rihanna as she accepts the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award. (Spears accepted the award in 2011.)
Spears, of course, has a long history with the VMAs, from her iconic costume change in 2000 to the snake dance in 2001 to the infamous Madonna kiss in 2003. “She grew up on MTV,” Ignjatovic says. “She’s so connected to the network, and I know back when I worked on the channel in the ‘90s she was the darling of MTV.”
The last time Spears actually performed at the VMAs, however, was in 2007, and, well, we all know how that went. Ignjatovic says fans have nothing to worry about this year: “It’s amazing [to have her back],” he says. “To have her in such great form with a huge hit, she’s super relevant and current—I think the young people watching MTV now are as connected to her as they were back in the TRL days.”
A PERFORMANCE BRITNEY HAS NEVER DONE BEFORE!??!?!?!?! Britney is really coming for blood this era and we are SO here for it! The Britney army is READY for Britney to take the VMA stage this Sunday, August 28th! Are you ready Britney Army??!?!
