Despite the funny TV promos she did with this year's VMAs host Russell Brand, don't expect to see Britney Spears on the MTV Video Music Awards this year. Her manager, Larry Rudolph, told Ryan Seacrest that "Britney will not be performing at the VMAs... I'm telling you officially and unequivocally." The singer is "in the middle of recording her next album, which is going amazingly well, and was never supposed to perform at the show," according to Larry. Fans hoping to catch a glimpse of Brit on stage will just have to hit a Madonna concert, where she shows up in a video montage during the song "Human Nature."
