It's Britney, bitch! Sure, Vegas might've swallowed her up and turned her into a highly-controlled commodity, shined up and ready for mainstream (-ish?) public consumption, but when you think about it, this particular pop star's always been a Vegas girl at heart.
It's fitting, then, that Britney will be performing a medley of her greatest hits at tonight's Billboard Music Awards in Sin City — and for the occasion, she turned up in a long-sleeved lingerie bodysuit, fishnet-esque lace-up boots, and a train. A freakin' train! Forget the Juicy sweats, the bedazzled Sidekick, and the greasy bag of drive-thru burgers — Britney's back, and looking better than ever.
