On May 22, "Billboard Magazine" held their 27th annual Billboard Music Awards, and oh boy, everyone pulled the stops out that evening. Making her first television debut since the untimely death of her husband, Rene Angelil and her brother Daniel, we all enjoyed a beautiful rendition of “The Show Must Go On” by Queen, sung by Celine Dion. We watched as her 15-year-old son, Rene-Charles, present her with the Billboard Icon award (and rightfully so!) and there wasn’t a dry eye in the house. We watched her thank everyone, including her husband and we mentally wished her the best. “I think at this moment in her life, the song has many meanings and it’s an amazing choice” says executive producer Mark Bracco.
Many other stars came out that night to present awards to various artists including The Weeknd, Rihanna, Walk The Moon, Wiz Khalifa, Drake, Adele and a whole slew of others, there was one performance that was worth watching the entire show. All praise the Holy Spearit. Yes, I said it. We can all thank Britney Spears for that. That’s right! Britney Spears brought the house down within the first five minutes of the show. Opening the show performing a melody of her hits including “Work B*tch,” “Slave for You,” “Toxic,” and “Breathe on me,” she killed it. I mean, Godney killed it. She slayed—HARD!
Designed by Mark Zunino, Britney’s costume consisted of a red top hat and a short drop dead sexy overcoat. After only one minute and sixteen seconds into the performance, Godney—I mean, Britney, tore off that overcoat to reveal—a small red bikini with crystals basically crisscrossing her entire, perfectly sculpted body. In my opinion, the show wasn’t her greatest. She looked stiff dancing and most of her performance was her flipping her blonde hair around and more concerned with how it fell after a dance sequence. But in Godney Spearit’s—I mean, Britney Spear’s defense, she had to lip sync because I’m sure there is absolutely no way to keep up with all those moves while trying to hit a high note—unless of course you just so happen to be Beyoncé, but that’s a different godly deity.
In case anyone is wondering, I love Britney Spears. I remember her when she was a Mousekeeter on The MMC (The Mickey Mouse Club) on Disney, along with her costars Ryan Gosling (Hey Girl –insert heart emoji), Christina Aguilera, JC Chaze and of course, how can we forget, Justin Timberlake (Jusney forever!!) I’ve stood by her side even though her fall from grace in 2007 and prayed for her to get her life together, and she did just that! But can we just take a moment to appreciate her beautiful abs that were on full display and that beautiful dance breakdown in the middle of “Womanizer.” It was better than seeing Mars on full display (ok that’s a lie. I just couldn’t come up with anything else).
But regardless of what people have said about the performance, all that matters is that Brit-Brit gave it her all and looked fierce doing so.
Now, do I want a hot body? Yes
Do I want a Bugatti? yes
Do I want a Maserati? Yes
Do I want a Lamborghini, sipping martinis, living fancy in a big mansion and partying in France? OF COURSE I DO!
Bless you Godney for bringing a little bit of “Piece of Me” to those that haven’t seen it in person yet.
May the holy Spearit be with you.
