Almost one year after this hot mess, Britney Spears and MTV have reunited.

“Russell joked about there being sexual tension, and Britney shot back, ‘I don’t feel the tension.’ The other joke was about no one knowing who Russell was so she called him by the wrong name. LL called him Russell Bland and Britney called him Russell Brown.”
The shoot also included a 9,000 pound elephant…because, “The joke of the whole thing is ‘there is an elephant in the room.’”
