Britney Spears will be performing the song “Make Me” off her new album “Glory” at the VMAs coming up on Sunday, August 28. It’s her first time performing on the show since 2007. MTV announced her return with a video of a snake making its way through a dressing room- a callback to her performance of “I’m a Slave 4 U” from 2001.

In the video, Spears can be heard saying “The VMAs don’t just give you a stage…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.”
Spears has a long history with the show. Her first performance was in 1999, when she shared the stage with *NSync. In 2000, she performed on her own, covering The Rolling Stones before breaking out into her hit “Oops, I Did it Again.”
In 2001, she strutted with a snake, and in 2003, she kissed Madonna and Christina Aguilera onstage at the same time. Her performances have never been dull, to say the least.
Spears has also had her fair share of troubles over the years. In 2007, she was meant to make a comeback but a bizarre and lackluster performances made us all wonder whether she was okay. She had a breakdown a few months afterward. Today, Spears seems to be doing well and lives under the conservatorship of her father. Currently, she has a residency out in Las Vegas. We can’t wait to see her.
