Chatting with 92.3 AMP Radio cohosts Shoboy and Nina on Tuesday, August 30, Brit talked about the awkward moment (which one, the whole performance was totes awks) when she seemingly dodged a smooch from the 27-year-old rapper. “No, I don’t think so,” she said. “He has a girlfriend!”
Though they didn’t lock lips during the steamy number, the collaborators did have some awkward closeness. Brit writhed up against the hip-hop star in a very sex-less way and even placed her hand over his crotch, which was decidedly cringe-worthy. I think it was just some choreographer’s way of testing the limits of Britney’s un-sexiness, really. Their whole performance was so MEH and UGH.

Hours after Drake professed his love for Rihanna at the 2016 MTV Video Music Awards, the rumored couple hit up a star-studded afterparty in New York City, holding hands (with their 60-odd person crew) and partying till 3:30 am, and that wasn’t the only couple getting hot and heavy in the wake of the 2016 VMAS. US Weekly reports:
Inside the club, the pair celebrated near the DJ booth as Caribbean dancehall music played. Britney Spears‘ “Make Me…” collaborator, G-Eazy, also attended the afterparty, as did Tinashe, Halsey, Kevin Spacey and Hailey Baldwin. Rihanna and Drake left the nightclub shortly after 5 a.m.
Just a few blocks over (or a quick Uber ride), Ariana Grande and her new boyfriend, Mac Miller, arrived at Vandal restaurant for the Republic Records VMAs afterparty. The “Into You” singer, 23, who hit the VMAs stage earlier for a spin class-esque “Side to Side” performance with Nicki Minaj, looked adorable in a pair of overalls. Her rapper beau, 24, kept it casual in a beige crewneck sweatshirt, light blue jeans, black sneakers and a pink hat.
If there’s a night to get crazy, this would be it. I wonder how everyone’s hangover is today. Hydrate, people!
As you know, Kanye West got 4 minutes to do whatever he wanted with, and while it had some elements of Klassic Kanye, it was also still not as crazy as I expected (but still, mark my words, crazy). He walked on stage to his song “Famous,” and the now-famous line “I made that bitch famous.” Since Kanye is often his own worst enemy, I was SURE he was going to say a ton of stuff about Taylor Swift, but was surprised that he didn’t. He did eventually mention her but it seemed like an appropriate/funny point. He also shouted out to Amber Rose and his wife, Kim Kardashian, “who is a G.” And then…he talked about inspiration:
If you feel like you’re seeing people dying right next to you, you might feel like, what’s the point? Like life might be starting to feel worthless in a way. I know times for me, I sit down and talk to older rich people, you know, aka white. they tell me don’t compare yourself to Steve Jobs, don’t compare yourself to Walt Disney. My friend Zakaya told me, there’s three keys to keeping people impoverished, that’s taking away their esteem, taking away their resources, and taking away their role models. My role models are artists merchants, less than 10 that I can name in history: Truman, Ford, Hughes, Disney, Jobs, West.
Kanye then introduced his new music video for “Fade,” which is awesome. See? You can take a little crazy for Kanye-brand genius. The video features Teyana Taylor dancing Flashdance-style and it was sexy and awesome, and goes to show why I still love Kanye West. You can see the NSFW video here. Here’s the speech, though, in case you want to relieve it:
Last night was supposed to be Britney Spears’ big VMAs comeback. Sure, she’s BEEN to the VMAS (in 2011 she picked up the MJ Video Vanguard Award) but she hasn’t performed…until last night. But the question is- did it matter?
Britney performed “Make Me” and “Me, Myself and I” with G-Eazy, who already seems “bigger” (not just physically, but presence-wise) than Britney during this performance. And it was not good that they put her on after Beyonce. Britney didn’t have a chance! Her music seems so dated and flimsy next to Lemonade. Also, don’t EVER use the lyric “raise the roof” unless you want to sound like someone’s mom. Am I right? Anyhow, Here’s her performance:
I liked the shadowbox effect but there wasn’t much singing or dancing, and the chemistry between G-Easy and Britney was really, really hard to watch. Why even put them together if it’s going to be like a teenage dance where nobody wants to be there?
Anyhow, take a look and let us know what you thought of Brit-Brit’s comeback.
