Britney Spears Performed With Nicki Minaj and Rihanna Last Night

Perhaps fearing what would happen if she had to carry an entire performance, Britney Spears piggy backed on gigs by Nicki Minaj (above) and Rihanna (below) last night at the Billboard Music Awards. It worked, too, and put into full relief just how much Britney is the foremother of RiRi and Nicki’s brand of pop girliness, the celebrity femininity that blends skankiness with innocent “Who Me?” smiles and winks. But if it’s obvious from last night’s performance that Rihanna and Nicki learned a thing or two from Britney, will older Britney take the time to heed lessons from her own thick-skinned cultural offspring?

    I object to the use of the word “skankiness” in this article. Anyway, if her last tour, the Femme Fatale promotions & behind the scenes rehearsal videos, and last night’s performances are any indication then Britney isn’t going to take lessons from anyone. This is what she does now. This is a “Britney” performance. It’s just cruel to pretend otherwise.

    Both of these performances were mediocre at best. It says a lot that Rihanna, Nicki and Britney are dominating the charts with lackluster material with liver performances to match.

    They should all take a cue from Beyonce who did an amazing job with a pretty disposable song.
