Natalie Cole criticized the organizers of the MTV Video Music Awards for letting an ill-prepared Britney Spears open the show.
The soul singer said that MTV bosses should have pulled Britney Spearâ€™s part beforehand, as it was already known that it was going to end in a disaster.
She revealed, “I don’t think she should have performed. She wasn’t ready, and she shouldn’t have been pushed to perform. I’ve been at big affairs where things happen – the director and the producer got together and said you know what, ‘Maybe we should find someone else.â€™â€
She added, â€œThat should have happened here. They put her out there to get the viewers in. And then she didn’t deliver and it’s not her fault. I think they put way too much pressure and stress on her.”
She also revealed that Kanye West should have opened the Las Vegas event.
