Britney Spears, who made an in-person appearance last Wednesday night to host a Southern Style dinner party in Beverly Hills, CA to help the St. Bernard Project raise funds for Hurricane Katrina relief made another in-person appearance here in LA last night to support and co-host KIIS FM’s annual Wango Tango concert festival. Altho Britney did not perform, she did walk the red carpet and briefly appear on stage … looking absolutely fabulous all the while. Check out some photos and deets below.
Britney Spears makes headlines at concerts, even when she’s not performing. That’s probably why Los Angeles radio station KIIS FM tapped the pop princess to guest-host their annual Wango Tango music festival along with Ryan Seacrest on Saturday night at the Staples Center. The bill was a balance of pop and hip-hop, with acts like Ke$ha, Jennifer Lopez, Pitbull, Ne-Yo, Selena Gomez, “Glee” ‘s Matthew Morrison, Lupe Fiasco, T-Pain, Jason Derülo, Far East Movement, New Boyz, Cobra Starship and newcomer Cody Simpson. Backstage, the media room went into a frenzy when Spears arrived in a red, geometric-print dress and a beaming smile. Owning her “femme fatale” moniker, Spears worked the carpet for a few moments while all of the cameras in the room were pointing at her … While Joe Jonas wasn’t performing at the show, he took a break from recording his solo debut to catch up with almost everyone backstage. “I didn’t see Britney backstage, just said ‘hello’ to a couple of my friends,” Jonas said. “Backstage is always [full of] people, especially having it at the Staples Center this time, I think compared to all the way out in the desert, it changes everything.”
Man, Britney is lookin’ GOOD these days! She is just weeks away from kicking off her Femme Fatale Summer tour and it looks like she is prime shape to rock the stage. While I am not a fan of festival concerts like this, I would’ve prolly made my way down to the Staples Center if our dear Britney had performed. That being said, I don’t mind waiting the few weeks left until I get to see her on stage at Staples fronting her own show. Keep up the good work, Britney. Your time is now!
