Britney Spears – Lifetime Achievement Award! Seriously?
Allow me to start off with the customary, ARE YOU FUCKING KIDDING ME??? I feel like this should be part of Norm McDonald’s, “Wait, What?” bit. Britney Spears won a lifetime achievement award, wait… what? First and foremost, this has nothing to do with Britney Spears as a performer, though I’m no fan of her music this isn’t what I’m talking about. Britney Spears is TWENTY NINE years old!!!
Aren’t lifetime achievement awards something to give people like Madonna, or Michael Jackson (well, that was an easy one the award is actually named after him). But seriously, was there no one else that MTV could have given this award to? Britney is still very much an active artist, I mean fuck… she won Best Pop Video THIS YEAR!!! I think the old dog’s got some tricks left in her…
So maybe in like 20 years when Britney is “old” and her career is really over we can give her a double lifetime achievement award?
