We just received a press release from MTV announcing that Britney Spears will be opening the 2008 VMAs, and that it is an opening not to be missed. However, it will not be a performance. (A sign that she's finally making some good decisions.) Brit is nominated for three awards this year, which brings her up to a total of 19 VMA nominations in her career, with no wins so far. So what do you think the big opening will entail? She's already appeared with two broke creeps (Kevin Federline, Michael Jackson), and writhed around with two leathery creatures (that snake, Madonna). What more could there be?
