As has been making rounds across the net, producer/casting director John “Woody” Woodbeck has set the Twitterverse ablaze with mention of music icons Madonna and Janet Jackson honoring pop princess Britney Spears at the 2011 MTV Video Music Awards. The producer said:
If this lineup is legit (which I’m told it is) the tribute to Britney at the VMAs is gonna be insanely EPIC!! Wow! Wow! Wow!
See the ‘line-up’ after the jump:
We agree Bey. Hmm…this sounds more like a stan fantasy than a legit line-up. While Lady Gaga, Ke$ha, and Nicki Minaj will all be in attendance, their connections with Britney are well-documented (writing, tourmate, etc) – thusly, making their involvement more believable. But, for pop Queens Madonna and Janet Jackson to tribute Spears, that seems a bit…much. However, even with no official confirmation from MTV, the news has been making headlines all over magazine and blog sites alike (and MTV has yet to dispel the rumors).
Alas, we will all have to tune into the show on August 28th to find out the real lineup. Until then, fans can whet their appetites by seeing Spears’ MTV promo spot here (which interestingly features music from both Madge and Miss Jackson).
