Britney Performs ‘Big Fat Bass’ Live (Previously Unseen)

Published: Wednesday 25th May 2011 by Sam

For years now, the words ‘Britney Spears‘ and ‘performing’ either provoke fits of laughter or quiet reflection on a talent who once ‘had it all’. Yet to her credit, the 29 year old continues to try, bless her. Case, point, example, her performance of ‘Big Fat Bass’ on the Jimmy Kimmel Live show.

Shot in March, during her promotional run for her ‘Femme Fatale’ LP, the performance had been vaulted since then, only seeing the light of day this morning.

After watching it, we most certainly know why. See the shocking showing after the jump…

Spears spent so much time on her back during that performance she may has well have been in bed. Lord knows, she almost put me to sleep. Absolutely tragic.

Britney’s sad fall from grace has been quite the spectacle; one, which solely from a performance standpoint, isn’t far removed from Judy Garland’s deterioration before her death. It’s like watching a car get hit multiple times in slow motion – bam, bam, bam. Sad.

One can only hope that after the inevitable shambles of her forthcoming tour is over, she takes time to work on ‘self’. Because be it confidence or a lack of drive, she is taking multiple dumps on herself by putting herself out there like this. I mean she’s not even 30 and is performing like a pensioner. I can’t…

    The amount of mood stabilisers she’s on I am surprised she can remember to lip sync.

    This b**** is has-been.

  6. KD May 25, 2011

    This is a testament to the stupidity of stans, I could not believe that people were cheering and jumping up and down during that performance…Why is she still doing this???? It can’t be for the money and she sure as hell does not seem to enjoy doing it???? So why does she still do it???

  7. KD May 25, 2011

    @ mariela; we’ve seen the video thanks…now could you get a life instead of making it your personal mission to destroy someone who is untouchable.

    She obviously doesnt want to do it anymore.. im sure she just wants to become a full time mom.. i dont see the drive in her anymore..

  10. Tr May 25, 2011

    Now watch Kyle’s dumb ass come here and say It was the greatest thing EVER….ignorant troll!!! The extent that she utterly embarrassed herself on the Billboard awards, further more her continuing on this ‘trainwreck’ of a career is incredible!!!

  11. Tr May 25, 2011

    I agree with the above sentiments, her heart is just not in this any longer, and she just doesn’t know how to quit, forI dunno: Fear of disappointing her fans, or due to contractual obligations hse is entitled to fufuill by her record co…but she’s just going thru the motions!! Sad actually,,,

  12. Part Of The Blanco Family May 25, 2011

    it would be a different story if she actually was TRYING TO GO HARD… but shes not even trying to give us CHOREO… shes just sitting there chest popping.. she seriously cannot be doing THAT the whole tour.. i think she should pull out.. shes not giving me the incentive to see her concert

  13. Geronimo Deuces-Champion May 25, 2011

    dont like the song…….. sorry i love britney but this was bad…. gaga has taken over

  14. Mari (RIP Dwayne McDuffie) May 25, 2011

    I think this would have been better as a Peas song, cause I like Will I Am’s verse, and I think Fergie would’ve killed this.

  15. yaaaasss May 25, 2011

    The only thing I think when I see this performance is ‘Damn, Kim Zolciak is doing a s*** Britney Spears impersonation’! So sad.

  16. Ayon Voxx May 25, 2011

    I wish I could b**** slap her she is f****** tired now, she dance like she singing live. I mean at least dance if your going to lip sync I cant with Britney now geesh.

  17. bey’knight brutal May 25, 2011

    with every performance this era, she hammers a nail into the coffin of her legacy. what’s worse is her psyvchotic fanbase and handlers cant be honest with her. at least hordes of beyonce fans made it crystal clear they dont like RTW. gaga says she watches her tv performances back, maybe if britney did that to, she’d spare herself further ridicule

    as for her tour, well anyone paying money to watch her for 2 hours in the state deserves a STAN TROPHY, must be the peak loyalty and …. endurance

  18. redskin339 May 25, 2011

    Where is KYLE, her only stan shud be here complimenting her extremely tragic performance

  19. CA2 May 25, 2011


    It actually came up on my Twitter feed, Sam said it was awful, so i looked to see how bad.

    Pretty damn awful.

  20. CA2 May 25, 2011

  26. The Naked Truth May 25, 2011

    Big Fat FLOP….

    Oh Britney….Hang it up….

  27. The Naked Truth May 25, 2011

    Notice @ Kyle’s Avatar is from Circa 2001….When Britney could actually MOVE.

    Deep down he KNOWS she is a S***** MESS these days and needs a much needed break to find that drive she once had.


  28. Aryo May 25, 2011

    she KILLED IT ! ur fave could never

  29. queenbey will always s*** on ur fave and leave them no option but 2 pout May 25, 2011

    @KYLE- LMAOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!! U call walkin up and down dancing alot??? Pill Poppin Britney and her knees are embarassing herself!!!!

  30. Bobby May 25, 2011

    LOOOOOOOL @ the dance breakdown where they hella dim the lights to hide the fact that she can’t keep up with the choreography, if you look closely she just waves her arms around and does god knows what, i love britney but her delusion is embarassing

  31. queenbey will always s*** on ur fave and leave them no option but 2 pout May 25, 2011

    I have NEVER ever, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever seen a performance where PPB sung live…… EVER!!!!!! *smokey voice from the movie Friday*

  32. Christian May 25, 2011

    @ KYLE – You are “ONE OF A KIND”, That’s all I can say. LOL!!!!

  33. Christian May 25, 2011

    Thank God that performance was back in March

    But does ANYONE know what choreographers she working with for her tour since Brian is no longer her choreographer.

  34. Michael May 25, 2011

    I’m gonna’ stick up for her cause I think she’s amazing, and I don’t get why people want to constantly put her down, she’s a great performance, and her dancing was pretty good at the kick-drum. Plus, she was amazing at the Billboard Awards, I know haters gon’ hate, but you can’t deny it, even the media loved her at the BBA. I’ve seen her live, and it was the best concert i’ve ever been to, and can’t wait till she hits the UK again. But, everyone has their own opinion, if they didn’t, the world would be boring.


  35. Michael May 25, 2011

    Just to add, I understand loads of y’all like Beyonce, but that song she’s brought out is one of the worst song’s I’ve ever heard, I’d rather listen to Rebecca Black on repeat.

  36. Randy May 25, 2011

    for the first 2 seconds of the breakdown i thought something was actually going to be good but it went dark to hide her fail

  37. Onyx May 25, 2011

    oh britney!, she’s trying, she’s beautiful as always, she’s a great entertaiment, haters stay away from her. I love you britney

  38. Christian May 25, 2011

    I’m gonna just say this. Once this Era is over – I hope Britney take atleast a year or two off and get herself together. Whether it’s in regards to the conservatorship, her health, etc Because this is not the Britney us fans fell in love with years ago.

    I just hope when I see her in July she blows me away because every concert of hers that I attended I had an AMAZING time.

  39. well well well May 25, 2011

    She might as well have sat !

  40. K.Deshawn May 25, 2011

    ROTF!!!!!!!!! WTF? Is this what you call a comeback? Let’s be real, Britney Spears is one untalented overrated pop artist. She can’t sing (live or in studio) & she can’t dance. What the hell does she have to offer at a concert? I can’t see how people pay to watch her lip sync and dance stiff on stage. It’s not worth it. She really needs to put more effort into her performances. I don’t think she’s taking this seriously, if she was, she wouldn’t be embarrassing herself like this.

  41. BitchIcantevenspellwelfare May 25, 2011

    po thang…

  42. Bey’knight May 25, 2011

    I literally laughed reading kyle’s comment. I bet he spent ages tryna come up with a comment to save face. Gotta admire his resilience tho lol

  43. aisha May 25, 2011

    lol sam! “shocking show”! otherwise it hurts me nowadays to see Spears perform. she used to b good! she just mostly sat down while the dancers did all the performing.

  44. Bassmann May 25, 2011

    @ KD

    She made $750,000 in product endorsements alone for the Hold it Against Me video. Clearly she doesn’t have the drive that she use to have, but if you were making that kind of money you’d have a hard time quitting your job too.

  45. KoreanDream May 25, 2011

    This is really sad. She’s deteriorated beyond belief over the past 10 years as a performer. To think I bought tickets to see this b**** live in a month.

  46. nice_girl May 25, 2011

    I think she should not be performing!! She’s got lots of money now and needs to spend time with her family.

  47. loves1embrace May 25, 2011

    Lol, at them turning down the lights just when the dance break began! LMAO! This was not a performance & if u want lip-syncing tune in to RuPauls Drag Race.

  48. Darren May 25, 2011

    That was just laughable. They probably chain that poor girl up and whip her until she sings and dances and makes them money.

  49. hot ice May 26, 2011

    without you the pop don’t exist

  50. Ur mom May 26, 2011

    I could understand if you don’t sing during a performance to save your breath for the dance routine but shes not even singing.
