Britney Spears, who’s been a fixture at the VMAs for much of the last 12 years (!!!) — and will enjoy a must-see tribute at Sunday’s VMAs — has served the VMA viewers and Britney fans countless memorable moments, from her first0ever performance of “Baby (One More Time)” with *NSYNC at the ’99 VMAs all the way through 2009 when she took home the award for Best Pop Video. The VMAs and Britney Spears go together like, well… MTV and Britney Spears. And also like Britney Spears and adorable cats.
But one major VMA moment that sticks out in our minds here at Buzzworthy was Britney’s EPIC, INSANE, INCREDIBLE performance of “I’m A Slave 4 U” at the 2001 VMAs. From her buff body adorned in practically nothing (seriously, I squatted for weeks on end after I saw this performance) to the SIX-FOOT BOA AROUND HER NECK, it was a stand-out VMA performance not only that year, but for the entire history of the VMAs.
So with all this talk of A Britney Spears tribute taking place at this year’s VMAs, we came up with own way to pay homage to the VMA queen — WITH AN ADORABLE KITTEN REENACTING HER FAMOUS 2001 VMA PERFORMANCE! The ideas don’t stop here, guys. Try us!
Mazzy the kitten plays Britney Spears in the MOST ADORBZ TRIBUTE EVER. The video, which stays true to the original 2001 performance, starts out with Mazzy in a cage about to unleash her fury (read: HUGE ADORABLE BLUE EYES OMG) on the audience in front of her. She writhes around (read: sits there like SUCH A GOOD KITTY KITTY, KITTY KITTY) through the song and handles that snake like a pro (read: sits there adorably). The end product? Yet another memorable performance from (Kitty) Britney Spears!
