Timbaland doen't seem to thrilled that Britney Spears is opening up the MTV VMAs this Sunday. Timbaland is one of the executive producers. He spoke to Ryan Seacrest on KIIS-FM this morning about it.
He seems to think Britney's opening is basically just Red Bull. Yeah, that sums it up. He said, "Just to get the crowd moving. Like you got "Bartender," you got "Shawty," all these hyped songs. I call them crunk songs. I think when they [the audience] show up, you got to give them Red Bull. It's what you hear at the club that gets you going."
When asked about her single "Gimme More" he said, "It's okay...it's kinda dull, kinda flatline."
Jay-Z on the other hand said he would love to work with Brit. He told Extra , "Well, she’s a talent…if it was natural and organic. I wouldn’t want to just do it for the sake of just putting out a single. If the song was incredible, if she was serious about the project, then absolutely.”
The thing is so many people are going to watch the VMAs just for Britney. You either want the wig to fall off or you want her to do amazing. I want both, because if the wig falls off that would be amazing.
Jay-Z is also just being nice, because there's nothing natural or organic about that chick.
