Britney Spears returned to the show that made her an icon on Sunday night, performing “Make Me…” with an assist from rapper G-Eazy on the MTV Video Music Awards.
Following an introduction from Kim Kardashian, Britney emerged from behind a silk screen in a sheer bodysuit, showing off her enviable assets just barely hidden by a few well-placed yellow crystals. No doubt about it: the pop princess looked absolutely flawless, giving us all the best “Oops!… I Did It Again” fashion vibes from her unforgettable showing in 2000.
The 34-year-old added yet another delightfully sultry performance to her VMAs resume, grinding with G-Eazy — even going in for a full-on crotch grab! The pair ran through her Glory hit, “Make Me…,” before launching into the rapper’s “Me, Myself & I,” with Brit filling in on Bebe Rexha’s chorus.
There was definitely some face-touching towards the end there, and just when we thought the duo might go in for the kiss — Britney flashed that megawatt smile to the audience and offered up a sweet peck on the cheek.

The performance comes just two days after Brit dropped her ninth studio album, Glory, and an unbelievable 15 years after she danced with that gigantic snake while performing “I’m a Slave 4 U” at the 2001 VMAs.
Fittingly, Britney reminisced about the memorable moment while teasing her latest performance.
“The VMAs don’t give you a stage,” she said in the video announcement, “They give you a story. Some way of taking a fraction of a second and making it live forever. Before you know it – it’s history. Before you know it… it’s Britney b*tch.”
Through good times and bad, Britney has always known how to deliver a talked-about VMA moment. Walk with us down memory line and we re-live five of her most major VMA performances over the years.
