Oh, Britney Spears. Where Have Your Dance Moves Gone?

Remember When Britney Spears

We had to wait a few days until our tears dried before showing you this heartbreaking video of old Britney Spears vs. new Britney Spears.  Gone are the fresh POPs and hip shakes that leave you glitter-dizzy.  In their place are molasses-covered moves and early signs of osteoporosis.  Brit Brit-We understand what you’ve been through and we were right there beside your magazine pictures as you injured your knee, met that vagabond, shaved your head, tooks liberties with an umbrella, and had your freedom stripped from you.  We get it.  But to pretend that you’re still as sharp on stage as you once were would be an insult to both of us.

PHOTOS: Give Me Back My Old Britney Spears, Please

With that said, Pop Dust has gone ahead and put together a video comparing the old to the new, and it’s not pretty.  If you’ve been a fan of Britney’s since “Hit Me Baby…One More Time,” then this will be difficult for you as well.  Together, we can watch and acknowledge, then hopefully move on.  Damn it, spunky Brit.  Why did you abandon us?

Check out the video after the jump. And use the page-loading time to prepare yourself.  Grab a box of tissues, too.

    If you listen to the old vs. the new it sounds like she’s atleast singing live now (over a backing track mind you). So perhaps they slowed down her routine to let her breathe a little easier, and sing. There’s almost no one who can sing and dance that hard at the same time. Gaga manages, and some other people record live sounding tapes to by played while they lip sync. *cough cough*beyonce*cough.

    she should just stop the dancing – it makes her look foolish now

    She doesn’t seem that interested anymore either. Maybe she’s on some meds that affect her ability to be as on point as she used to be.
    I agree with plonk! that she was definitely sacrificing singing live in order to dance hard earlier in her career… maybe the priorities have switched roles now.

    if Brit is taking meds for Bipolar Disorder, its not outside the realm of possibility that her wooden moves and lack of interest are side effects of those meds. ive seen it happen to people.
    no one ever went to a britney concert or bought her cd’s because she could sing…cuz she cant. if thats the refocus, she’ll fall hard.
    i love britney. but not for the songwritting, or her voice. it was the incredible dancing and entertaining she was so good at. and so sadly…that girl is gone.

    Give her a break, shes on serious meds. At least she is still out there and making music.

    Wow… how the mighty have fallen… Just painful to watch!

    it looks like she’s unable to bend much at the waist or back. maybe she’s dealing with something more then just bi-polar medication problems? if she’s got back/joint/disc problems – she’s not going to be able to do much other than a few basic arm and leg moves. watching her now – reminds me of me trying to get around when my lower back pain flares up. it looks stiff, difficult and almost like shes trying to avoid too much movement with her torso.
