Bringing Britney back: Britney Spears coming back to VMAs on Sunday

Note: An earlier version of this post described the below information about Britney Spears as coming from a press release. The information did not come from a press release, it was sent to me as an e-mail update about the VMAs.

I don’t think I have ever posted a word about Britney Spears, but this e-mail was simply too good to not give some digital ink to. I am mostly surprised that it came with talking points. It actually made me laugh out loud because I have never received mail about an artist with talking points before, let alone talking points about Britney Spears. But then again, I have never written a word about the pop culture empire/train wreck that is Britney. Here is the e-mail that showed up in my inbox earlier today:
