(Newser) – Britney Spears won’t be doing it again, after all. The singer, whose erratic performance at last year’s MTV Video Music Awards had her critics buzzing, won’t be staging a comeback for this year’s ceremony. Instead, Spears, a nominee for video of the year, will focus on her next album, “which is going amazingly well,” said her manager.
