The singer will perform “Make Me” for the first time.
It’s Britney, bitch … and she’s back.
After nine long years, Britney Spears will return to the VMAs stage, where she’ll perform “Make Me,” off her new album “Glory,” alongside rapper G-Eazy. Also performing at this year’s award show is Rihanna, who is set to receive the Video Vanguard award.
MTV announced the news on Tuesday with a video of an albino Burmese python slithering through Spears’ dressing room.
“The VMAs don’t just give you a stage, they give you a story. Some way of taking a fraction of a second and making it live forever,” Spears is heard saying in a voice-over. “Before you know it, it’s history. Before you know it, it’s Britney, bitch.”
The snake cameo is, of course, a throwback to Spears’ iconic 2001 “I’m a Slave 4 U” performance, where she seductively danced with a python named Banana.
