    Britney Spears Makes a Return to MTV's Big Night

    Britney Spears apparently isn't feeling any ill will toward MTV after her disastrous performance at last year's Video Music Awards.

    The well-on-her-way-to-a-comeback pop princess will appear in a television promo for this year's VMAs.

    Read on for all the deets...

    She shot the spot on Tuesday at the Paramount lot in Hollywood (the site of this year's show) with first-time host, British bad-boy comedian and Forgetting Sarah Marshall star Russell Brand.

    "It was mostly ad-libbed, with Russell asking her for advice about hosting the show," a source tells me. "There's also a 9,000-pound elephant in it, as in 'the elephant in the room.' "

    So, does this mean Ms. Spears, who is up for two VMAs this year, will be performing on the big night when it airs live on Sept. 7?

    A rep for MTV declined to comment on the possibility.
