    I'm not sure how many times this has happened to you, but when you're in the middle of recording voice-overs during the Video Music Awards and all of a sudden you get an email from the assistant of your bosses' boss telling you that you have to interview Britney Spears in her dressing room in 10 minutes -- man, that's weird.

    Because it's Britney Spears. One of the hugest pop stars on the planet, constant target of the tabloids, decided enigma. She's not exactly forthcoming with the press (for reasons that are certainly understandable) and not particularly interested in sitting down for a chat -- especially when said chat is supposed to take place in her dressing room, surrounded by her team of publicists, makeup artists and friends. Needless to say, the odds of the whole thing going down in a ball of flames are pretty high.

    And yet, there I was on Sunday night, winding my way through the backstage corridors of the Nokia Theatre, the VMAs literally happening all around me, on my way to meet Britney. Armed only with an email (and a rather paltry level of security clearance), I talked my way past the stone-faced security guards -- who, it should be noted, didn't seem to believe that I was about to interview Britney Spears either -- found my way to her dressing-room door and awaited further instructions. As I stood there, my mind raced: What, exactly, was I going to ask her, anyway? And, perhaps more importantly, what is she really like?
    After a few minutes, the door swung open, one of her publicists poked his head out and told me, quite matter-of-factly, "Britney's ready." I entered the tiny dressing room, scanned the faces lining the walls (publicist one, publicist two, manager Larry Rudolph, makeup artist, sister Jamie Lynn) and suddenly came face to face with Britney herself, eyes wide and sparkling, head cocked slightly, big smile on her face. I noticed the tiny pair of red dice she has tattooed on her left wrist, the hem of her black dress, the way she crossed her ankles. And then, I noticed she was looking right at me.

    "Hi, I'm Britney," she said.

    No kidding.

    I am happy to report that Britney Spears is a very nice person; she is funny and carries herself with a relaxed grace that belies her superstardom. We spoke about her VMA tribute -- during which she spent much of the time praising others -- and how, even after winning a boatload of awards, she's still blown away each and every time her name is called. Shoot, we even laughed about Lady Gaga's alter ego, Jo Calderone ("She's definitely in character," Brit laughed). In fact, the thing that struck me the most about her was her quick wit: She cracks jokes like they're going out of style.

    And while I guess you could say that I learned an awful lot about Britney on Sunday night, the biggest lesson was probably this: Basically everything you think you know about her is wrong. It's sort of a shame she doesn't do more interviews, because, really, I think most folks would leave feeling the same way I do. Then again, I can understand why she doesn't. It's sort of an uphill battle at this point.

    Regardless, interviewing her was definitely a highlight, and not just because she's press-shy. It most certainly ranks as my greatest VMA moment, even ahead of the pre-show I hosted live Sunday night. So the next time you get a panicked email and an invite to sit down with Britney, I highly recommend you respond immediately. It will definitely be worth your time.

    I agree about Beyonce. Why did she use the stage? Thats very attention-whore-like....

    And I agree about Lady Gaga. I know what I hate her... its not about her songs anymore, its all about her costumes....and Katy Perry is driving on the same line. She used to be good, but she is just like Gaga... and where the hell was Rihanna? She is like on every award show performing, but she didnt perform this time....

    Finally caught a rerun of this on MTV. I love Britney, she is so cute. And this whole Gaga thing was the last straw, I was a fan, but this role-playing had nothing to do with art. Move over for Britney B*tch and stop stealing her moment. I loved how Britney honestly was honored with the award, and that it was the day before Michael Jackson's birthday and that meant something to her.

    I wish more artists were like Britney. I had it with these costumes...

    It seems like everyone has gimmick now for everything. It's so stupid. When did it come to this? like we didn't have this back in 00, seriously? MTV music awards was all about the music not the gimmicks and stuff as well as the outrageous performance. the last good show was 03. The award shows have become a joke to be honest. When Christina, Britney, Nsync, TLC and so on never had outrageous outfit like Katy Perry or Gaga.

    I also need to say, Jersey shore or whatever it is called is stupid too. I know its off topic but i needed to get it off my chest






    To all my friends here..I love each and every one of you

    Wow just watched the tribute and that was completely awful! They could have made it so much better. I can't believe that Britney had to give up her speech to introduce Beyonce. Lady Gaga was so annoying as well.

    Thanks so much Dave!!!!
