Rumor: Britney in talks for Emmys appearance

While there were certainly more worthy headlines this past week, none were driven into the public eye like a steel spike more than Britney Spears' performance at Saturday's MTV Video Music Awards.

By now, everyone has heard the criticism of the singer's performance--which ranged from the obvious "she lacked focus" to just-plain-cruel "she looked fat"--that opened the awards show. But if the stars align just right, says Us magazine, she may be appearing at another awards show to make amends--this Sunday.

The online branch of the celebrity-gossip magazine is reporting that Fox higher-ups are "in negotiations" with Britney Spears to have the singer make a guest appearance at the 59th Primetime Emmy Awards this weekend. According to an inside source, "the idea is to have her come on and apologize for the VMAs."

It's important to reiterate that this is all rumor and speculation at the moment, as Us quotes another source close to Spears who says nothing is official. "All I can say is that the Emmy people aren't dealing with her record company, her manager, or her agents at William Morris," says the source, according to Us. "So if she is doing anything for the Emmys then it's not going through the official channels."

While an appearance by the 25-year-old would certainly boost ratings for the show, it also seems incredibly misplaced. Last time we checked, the Emmys were about television, not pop music. And no, we don't count Britney and Kevin: Chaotic as Emmy-worthy.

Give me a break! Britney is old news. No one cares to see her face anymore. For me I am tired of most of her kind.

Did I miss something, what is she apologizing for?

I mean other than the obvious. If people would just stop talking about her, maybe she would go away for good.

NO! Get that poor girl some medical help ASAP! Before she self-destructs like Anna-Nicole.

The picture of her bald on the front news page makes her look like Smeagol (Gollum).

I like the idea. I'll maybe forgive Fox for cancelled good shows. But Britney needs a little more time and she looks fat, a diet and gym will be good for her.

If they let Britney be seen at the Emmy's they are just using her to get publicity because they know how terriable her performance was at the VMA'S so why would they even try to let her mess up their show so I'm thinking the Emmy's aren't going to invite her.

Performance at VMA? When has anything she's done been good? Fox will give her a new TV show just so they can cancel it after three episodes. What do I care about award shows for anyway? I would rather spend my time watching an actual good show, then watching one get an award. I don't need anyone to tell me what good tv & movies are.

I really hope this is only a rumor. It doesn't make any sense to have her on the Emmy's.

I bet Fox cancels the Emmys before it airs. LOL

Britney will have the last laugh when her new cd sells 1.2 million copies in its first week.
