Britney Spears Slams Lip Sync Accusations in New Interview

Britney Spears is not happy that people accuse her of lip syncing during her live concerts and she’s slamming the accusations in a new interview.

The 35-year-old entertainer was asked how much of her Piece of Me concert is sung live.

“I’m glad you’re addressing this question because it’s really funny,” Britney said in an interview for an Israeli outlet. “A lot of people think that I don’t sing live. I usually, because I’m dancing so much, I do have a little bit of playback, but there’s a mixture of my voice and the playback. It really pisses me off because I am busting my ass out there and singing at the same time and nobody ever really gives me credit for it, you know?”

Britney will be performing in Israel for the first time on July 3.

    What’s funny is that after all these years she still doesn’t even lip-sync well. Maybe it’s time for Britney to retire? She was more entertaining in 2008 than she is in any of her “performances” these days.

  • Cool Boots

    She puts on an amazing show. And yes she does sing live a lot during her show.

  • Sarai123

    LMAO girl. The whole world knows you’re lipping everything now. Even the ballads. How delusional is she.

  • rosaryblue

    I’ve seen her live a few times, most recently in Vegas and she is definitely singing live.

  • Shell

    It’s a national sport to slate Britney. What is funny is many ppl use help when singing on stage and no one says anything but Britney does it and she is dragged. She has proved many times over the years she can sing but it’s still not good enough for some.

  • Just Saying

    LMAO Britney barely moves her mouth to the full song playing in the background while she flaps her arms and legs around like a drunk person at the club, now THAT’S funny. Other artists might “use help” while performing but they do at least dance and sing properly, be real, man.

    So sorry you were scammed the first time, but dude, fool you twice shame on you.

    Britney can do whatever she wants!! She is an icon!!!

  • Cool Boots

    This is so true.

    Ariana Grande has playback all the time and she is treated like the second coming of Jesus as a vocalist. Britney is not the greatest singer in the world but when she sings some songs like “Everytime” or covers “You Outta Know” she clearly sings live and usually well.

    Ariana might have playback but you can hear every word she is singing live through her mic. And she doesn’t, in fact no one other than Britney, uses playback during a ballad. If you can sing you wouldn’t need to. You can’t claim I’m up here dancing my a** off during a ballad so I need the playback. At least most of the world is woke and see’s this. lmao

    ”I do have a little bit of playback, but there’s a mixture of my voice and the playback.”
    Look
    at it from her point of view, that headset mic is just there for show
    (though she doesn’t know that) so when she *ahem* ”sings” she is hearing ”a mixture of my voice and the playback”.
    Mind you the chumps, err, audiences can’t hear her unamplified voice from that far away and drowned out by playback, but she can, and that’s all that matters to her right?
    After
    all the suckers ain’t ponying up their money to hear her *ahem* voice
    anyway they’re paying to hear a piece of software called Autotune.

    Uh… I’ve heard her try to sing “Everytime” and it was shockingly bad. Like she had never even tried to really sing it before, let alone rehearse it.
    Hell, even the most generic boyband out there manage to sound at least half-way decent live when they sing their own songs but Britney is just too lazy to even try.

  • jh7058622

    I feel like she just sang happy birthday live and sounded pretty decent for Britney Spears at least.
