Madonna Sure Knows How To Craft An Anticlimax

Dan Gibson / November 7, 2008

Yes, Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake both appeared at last night’s Madonna show at Dodger Stadium. No, they weren’t on stage together. Yes, Ryan Seacrest used his massive power to sell a few more tickets to the show by implying something big was in the works. Instead, the people who ponied up for tickets got Britney half-heartedly dancing around with her microphone possibly not even on during “Human Nature” and Justin performing live on “4 Minutes.” Not exactly the sort of thing that’s exciting enough to lure me away from the Oprah episode of 30 Rock. As Maura put it via IM, “2008: all gossip-blog hype, no follow-through.” [YouTube]
