The Shock Over Britney Spears’ Lip-Syncing Is Ludicrous

It’s not often that I agree with John Mayer, but even I have to admit he had a point when he tweeted: “If you’re shocked that Britney was lip-syncing at her concert and want your money back, life may continue to be hard for you.” You see, Britney Spears is on the Australia-leg of her “Circus” tour, and some fans and Australian government officials are upset that she lip-syncs during the performances. “It was so impersonal. She did not interact with her audience,” says dissatisfied fan Wendy Di Renzo, who told People she paid $148 for her ticket. “There were no big TV screens projecting the action, so if you didn’t know Britney, you might have even doubted it was her.” Australian press reported that fans walked out of her shows after a few songs, saying it was boring, mimed, and stiff. The Fair Trade Minister of New South Wales even suggested that concert tickets carry a disclaimer about whether artists lip-sync or prerecord parts of their concerts. But anyone who is a true Britney fan should know that she very rarely sings live during her performances. Her voice isn’t strong enough for her to sing while dancing and performing acrobatics, so fans have to decide whether they want to be visually entertained while hearing her music. And what fun is a pop music concert if the artist sits in a chair while singing the whole time? [Reuters, People]
