Will Britney Spears be making her musical comeback on the stage of the MTV Music Video Awards? According to a comment made today by magician Criss Angel, it's looking more and more likely!
Reports have suggested that Britney will not only be performing at the show on September 9, but that she will be the opening act.
Angel, who has been rumored to be Britney's new flame, told People today that their "relationship" is strictly business...of the "performing" sort.
"It's amazing what people think," Angel said. "We're not together. Her manager is my manager, and I'm helping with one of her shows. I'm helping with her appearance on MTV."
As for Britney's Wednesday hotel stay and dinner with Angel, all may not be as it seemed.
"We went to that restaurant with 10 people," he said of their dinner at Cravings in West Hollywood.
"We were talking about how she wants to do something more with the [awards] show," he explained, "and about me helping out and hoping to work with her on doing something to make her MTV appearance more innovative."
But for VMA Music Director Timbaland, Britney's rumored involvement in the show is news to him.
"I'm the maestro," he told Access Hollywood. "If I don't know nothing about it...could be, hope not. I don't know, I don't know nothing about it."
"Wooh, that would be a headache," he added.
A rep for MTV declined to comment when contacted by Access.
Britney last opened the VMA's four years ago, when she, Christina Aguilera and Madonna shocked the world with a combined performance...and some infamous kisses.
This year's show will be broadcast from the Palms Hotel Casino in Las Vegas.
