Britney Spears Has No Recollection of Her First VMAs Performance

Britney Spears made her triumphant return to the VMAs this past Sunday with an amazing performance of “Make Me…,” but it turns out Spears doesn’t have a great memory when it comes to her other iconic performances.

During an interview with Elvis Duran and the Z Morning Zoo on Monday morning (Aug. 29, 2016), Spears admitted she has no real memory of her very first VMA performance in 1999.

“I think I was with *NSYNC when I performed for the first time,” she said, trying to remember the performance. “I think the whole setup was a classroom, and my four main dancers were in the front at their desk and I came out of my locker. But, you know what, I don’t remember at all. I have no recollection. I couldn’t tell you anything about it.”

Even though Spears claims to have no recollection, her memory is pretty spot on. The 1999 performance with *NSYNC was a mashup of  “… Baby One More Time” and “Tearin’ Up My Heart.” It was, in fact, a classroom setup, and while Spears didn’t come out of a locker, there were lockers on the stage. While it was a performance her fans will never forget, is has been 17 years, so we can cut the pop princess some slack.
