Britney confirmed for VMAs

Britney Spears has confirmed that she will be performing at this year's MTV Video Music Awards.

The troubled singer, who was slated for her badly mimed and poorly choreographed version of her hit single, Gimme More last year, said that she couldn't miss out on the big event, which takes place on Sunday 7th September in Los Angeles.

In a statement published on MTV's website, the singer says, 'How can I not be there to kick off their 25th VMAs? I'm excited to open the entire show, to say hi to my fans and to be nominated'.

If you missed her performance last year, here it is again for your ahem... 'viewing pleasure'.
