What else do we have to do to stop making talentless hacks like Britney Spears famous celebrities? I mean, the girl has been caught lip-syncing on many occasions, yet people continue to buy her CDs and concert tickets. She's ugly, she crazy and she has no talent whatsoever! Wake up, people!
The 32-year-old talentless pop star was recently busted again for lip-syncing her way through her over-hyped Vegas residency. Okay, I understand that with all of the dancing she does on stage, it might be best to sing to a track so you don't sound to out of breath, but to lip-sync the entire show is cheating your fans. That's no better than going to a Disney show. Then again, she is a former Mousketeer! Maybe old habits die hard!
Anyway, it was revealed back in September that the pop star was planning on lip-syncing during her "Britney: Piece of Me" shows, but her management denied any such claims. Britney began her Planet Hollywood residency this past Friday night to a full house at the Axis Theater, but fans were left disappointed. According to one witness, "The singer appeared to be lip-syncing for the majority of her performance that went for high energy dance numbers such as 'Womanizer' as well as slower-paced ballads like 'Perfume,' for which Spears took a seat on stage."
Britney was being paid in the ballpark of $15 million a year for a total of 96 concerts and according to sources, ticket sales have been atrocious. Fans even took to Twitter to vent about their annoyance of having forked out hundreds of dollars for the show. Well, not for nothing, but it serves these people right for even spending a dime on this lip-syncing psycho. She was cooler when she shaved her head and started beating cars with an umbrella. One fan tweeted: "Britney Spears may be the only 'live' performer with the chutzpah to lip-sync to a song where she used AutoTune." He's right! Who the hell does that live? Another fan Tweeted: "I just watched Britney's show and her lip-sync was off by like 5 seconds."
Back in September after Britney's lip-syncing revelations, Team Britney went into meltdown mode and ordered up a cheat sheet to be used by Planet Hollywood staff when answering questions on the subject with statements like: "Yes, she will be singing live! Certainly, she will be singing live!" It never pays to lie because the truth always comes out in the end! Those behind the show are now concerned about ticket sales for the rest of the residency. They say, "What everyone here is worried about is, once fans wake up to the fact they are being cheated, they won't come to the show." No kidding! Who likes to be cheated? If I wanted to hear lip-syncing, I would just buy the CD or download the song. What am I paying for the dancing and the visuals? I can pay less to go to a strip club!
Can this be the end for the girl that I met 15 years ago in the Z100 conference room? She came in wearing a sundress, her face full of pimples, and she seemed so innocent. I remember her coming in with lunch for our staff to promote her song "Hit Me Baby One More Time." That seems like eons ago! 15 years later, Britney's latest CD Britney Jean, which was released back in November, opened with the lowest sales of her career. Sounds to me like her fans have finally outgrown Britney or it might be time for her to pull a Bieber and retire from music.
