Britney Spears during a performance in Salt Lake City in 2001. Spears is not scheduled for this year's MTV awards.

Britney Spears won't perform on this year's MTV Video Music Awards, according to her manager.

"Contrary to media reports, Britney was never slated to perform on this year's VMAs," Larry Rudolph, Spears' manager at Jive Records, said in a statement.

Spears' "Gimme More" comeback performance during last year's VMAs was one of the most-talked-about moments of 2007.

The rebounding pop queen is nominated for video of the year for "Piece of Me." This VMAs will air live Sept. 7.
