Britney Spears Dodged a Kiss From G-Eazy on National Television at 2016 MTV VMAs, and Fans Lost It

Hey, take it eazy! Britney Spears dodged a kiss from G-Eazy at the 2016 MTV Video Music Awards during the duo’s performance of “Make Me…” and fans took to social media to sound off on the awkward moment (which you can see in the video above).

When the pop princess, 34, and the rapper, 27, hit the stage at NYC’s Madison Square Garden on Sunday, August 28, the collaborators had undeniable chemistry. During their titillating number, the pair grinded against one another and Spears even placed her hand over the hip-hop star’s crotch at one point. Earlier in the night, they turned heads as they walked the red carpet holding hands and embraced while posing for photos.

Regardless of their flirty interactions, Spears was not about to lock lips with G-Eazy after he attempted to go in for a kiss moments before they took a bow. As viewers witnessed during Sunday night’s telecast, the chart-topping diva clearly pushed her partner away and shook her head no when he made his advance.

Spears’ not-so-subtle turndown prompted the Britney Army to light up social media with hilarious reactions. See the best below.

This was the first VMAs performance for the music magnate — who recently dropped her ninth studio album, Glory — since she attempted to make a comeback with a lackluster rendition of her hit “Gimme More” at 2007’s ceremony. However, she made a triumphant return to the awards show on Sunday night when she wowed the crowd by putting her insanely fit physique on display in a barely there bodysuit, all while slaying some killer choreography.

“We wanted to do something different, something I’ve never done before,” Spears told Z100’s Elvis Duran during a Monday, August 29, interview, “so that was probably the coolest thing we could come up with.”

Though she was not down to get a smooch from G-Eazy, the Grammy winner is still a big fan. “Oh, he’s so sweet!” she raved to Duran. “He’s got a lot of swag, he’s got the whole cool thing going on.”
