The singer made a triumphant return to the stage Sunday night during her first VMAs performance since 2007
There’s no doubt about it – that’s Britney, bitch!
The pop princess – joined by rapper G-Eazy – hit the MTV Video Music Awards stage Sunday night for her first performance at the annual show since 2007.
“We watched her strip out of a tuxedo and set the stage on fire, we watched her tame a snake and be very untamed with the one and only Madonna,” Kim Kardashian-West said in her introduction. “Tonight we have the pleasure of seeing what she’ll do next. Ladies and gentlemen, making her triumphant return to the VMAs stage, it’s Britney, bitch!”
Wearing a yellow bedazzled one-piece with matching thigh-high boots, the star slithered across the floor before being joined on stage by G-Eazy. The duo also sang the rapper’s hit “Me, Myself & I” and shared a quick kiss and hug before leaving the stage together.
“We wanted to do something different, something I’ve never done before, so that was probably the coolest thing we could come up with,” Spears told Elvis Duran prior to her performance.
Before the show kicked off, the singer, 34, gave her fans a peek at her first skin-baring ensemble for the evening.

She also called G-Eazy “so sweet,” and added that the rapper has “a lot of swag. He’s got the whole cool thing going on.”
Spears, who released her new album Glory on Friday, made her VMAs debut in 1999 when she performed her smash hit “Baby One More Time.” In 2001, the star cemented herself as a VMAs icon when she danced sexily on stage with a yellow python draped across her shoulder.
