When Britney Spears talks of Miley Cyrus, pop star of the VEVO era, she lists highlights as if reading from a script. At least, that’s how Spears initially sounded when she introduced Cyrus and her latest, props-filled (by now, as usual) live rendition of “We Can’t Stop.”
“This next performer is everywhere,” Spears says. “I enjoyed collaborating with her on Bangerz. She is so cool, and she’s about to perform her No. 1 hit ‘Wrecking Ball’ for the first time ever.” But then she flashes a grin, as if excited for “Wrecking Ball” but also about to break from script.work, bitch.” Of course she’d say that. Ah well. At least she’s still kind of a goof.
