Britney Continues To Piss Off The Aussies!

| Filed under: Britney SpearsAustraliastic


Brit Brit reportedly hid out in her Perth hotel room on Saturday after she angered numerous fans at her concert on Friday night for lip-synching!

What did they expect?????

This is Britney we're talking about!

All of Australia rallied against Spears upon landing in Perth last week, criticizing her for charging top $$$$ for a concert she would be lip-synching her way through, and the Aussies were still pissed at Brit after her performance.

One fan who ditched Spears' show early on in the night lamented to reporters, "I want my money back or I want her to sing properly… The ticket cost me $200 and she lip-synched the whole thing."

Fans were also outraged by the lack of large monitors for the cheap seats, complaining, "You couldn't tell if it was Britney or not."

Geesh! This sounds like much ado about nothing to us!

    Seriously. What did they expect? Britney is still amazing tho.

  4. 4

    FIRST. duh we all know she cant sing so she needs to get a new career or get with it. Also dont buy a ticket if all your gonna do is complain, blame yourself for being an idiot!

  5. 5

    Of course it sounds like nothing much to you, you couldn't care less if an "artist" writes their own material or not. Or whether they're an actual musician, or just someone who lays down their voice over someone else's work and calls it theirs, choosing to concentrate on the way they look and the way they dance, and getting paid, over any artistic integrity. It's not surprising even a little that you wouldn't get what the Aussies are complaining about.

  6. 6

    you know what perez, the Aussies have it right! i cnat belive you support the crap brittnay calls a concert. its ridiculous that these poeple call them selves "singers" when you pay for a concert you wnat to see and hear LIVE singing thats called talent, not stomping around a stage in booty shorts while fireworks go off behind you, thats not talent. im behond the aussies all the way. look at PINK she does acrobactics while actually still singing and singing extremely well, take a note of tat brit and perez thats real talent

    You were at a Britney Spears show. Your show is one of the last shows in an extensive and well reported on concert tour. Like Kathy Griffin said the other night, Britney just doesn't get bogged down in the details of singing live for a concert. It should even be noted that she doesn't re-record the songs she dances to live and then lip synch to that recording but rather she lip synchs to the original "album" tracks. Really what did you expect you were getting yourself into?

  8. 8

    goo brit!

  9. 9

    She's a dumb, talentless hick. Definitely not news….

  10. 10


  11. 11

    She is Amazing…….:)

  12. 12

    of course we know that britney lip synchs… i think they main issue is the fact that she's not doing much to compensate for the fact tat she can't sing for shit… she blows off the fans, hides fromthe media and from what i've heard so far, her 'performance' have been pretty uninspired. compare that to someone like pink, who can sing pitch perfect while hanging upside down from a trapeze, interacts with the fans during the show and is seen out and about enjoying our country, you can see why us aussies are less than impressed.

  13. 13

    When has she not lip-synched?

  14. @v@ says – reply to this


    You're not a real performer or a real entertainer or a live singer if you lipsynch.
    You're someone who can move their lips. I'd want my money back too. Ripoff!

  15. 15

    'All of Australia rallied'??? Really, Perez? Why do you write in such a sensationalist way? I live in Australia and seriously it's not that much of a big deal AT ALL at the moment… stop blowing things out of proportion, it makes a mockery of you. Must be a slow news day in LALA Land

  16. 16

    well im from melbourne and in australia we all know that perth is like the worst place… so i can see y she did that… also its perth… theres not many ppl in perth compared to melb and sydney… sucks to be them….

  17. 17

    I went to the concert in Perth on the weekend and it was seriously fabulous. Britney looked fierce and put on an amazing show!! I don't know why people were unhappy, perhaps their expectations of her were too high? I feel sorry for her having to deal with all this scrutiny… People keep comparing her to Pink and Beyonce but when it comes down to it… She isn't either of those artists - She's Britney and thats why we all love her!

  18. 18

    Ps. Perez, you were fabulous at the beginning introducing Brit Brit!

  19. 19

    Wow! $200 for a ticket. I would expect her to sing as well.

  20. 20

    i don't buy that shit.. Everyone who knows Britney Spears KNOW that they wont hear a "live vocal" performance!the people who was complaining are the idiots!! not Britney! She prefer to do the show(wich is a Big show by the way) with Pre-recorded vocals , so what? it's Britney Bic*! when she feels comfortable she sing live(alanis morissette-You oughta know)
    so this story is just shit to talk about ,i know there's a looooooot of dumb people on earth but common! you bought tickets for the Britney's circus show and complain about the lips synching? mmm… how clever.

  21. 21

    ywlisi wmymtwci msmay Been want to tell you those things all day! Nite b. yn ym 46 ms

  22. 22

    she lip sung her entire circus tour before going to australia!!!… before the tickets for the aussie shows even went on sale!!! those idiots knew what to expect…

  23. 23

    Perez I agree with alicemic! I live in Australia and I love Brit and no one over here cares that she is lip syncying! It was one journalist in Perth so stop exagerating and write something about how Most of Australia actually loves Britney! I know i can't wait till I go to her concert in Brisbane!

  24. 24

    Britney is a manufactured performer, she is not a talented entertainer. Just because she was a child star doesn't mean she had any real talent, it just means she had a machine behind her to push her in the face of the public as she grew up. I wouldn't walk across the street to see her, but obviously many would, not only do that but pay a lot of money to see her lip-synch and follow dance steps. If someone feels cheated because of this, then they have just not been paying attention to what is the true talent of Britany and that is a lot of people doing a lot of work to make her look good and seem like she can sing.

  25. YUCK says – reply to this


    She's wonderful!

  26. 26

    first of all, everyone KNOWS ahead of time this concert is lip synced. i never even saw her and i know. if you dont like it DONT BUY HER TICKETS. and secondly, the screens are the venue, not spears. so blame you asshole aussies for that k bitches?

  27. 27

    Oh don't be silly Perez no one in Australia cares :P , 'all of Australia' is a bit wrong

    Its just a few stupid people having a whinge…Britney has never sung live did they really think she'd do it for a world first in Perth, Australia? I've seen her in London when I was on holiday there and its an awesome show…you can't really sing live when you spend the whole time in heavy dance moves like she does.
    People were also complaining that she had her back to them….umm its a 360° stage what did they expect?

    People know what they are paying for beforehand so they have no right to complain…britney rocks still!

  28. 28

    As long as those uncultured vulgarians get my Perezcious's opening video montage where Britney slays the Perezcious with a crossbow, then they have gotten more than their money's worth. What on earth do they expect - LIVE SINGING??

  29. 29

    I agree…its kinda old news that she lip-syncs…

  30. 30


  31. 31

    I'm from Perth in Australia. The issue we had was NOT that she's lip synching, everyone knew that before we bought the tickets! The problem was she just didn't look like she could even be bothered with the entire night and if you were sitting in the back seats she just appeared to be a tiny dot. Why were there no screens? Was it so nobody could see her stuff up even trying to lip synch??

  32. 32

    she should just be someone with real talent's back up dancer.

  33. 33

    I agree with them, who would wanna pay $200 to see someone basically just move their lips and wear skimpy clothes.

  34. 34

    I was at the concert in Perth and i thought Britney was awesome, all of Australia has not gone against her, it was one reporter and the media has never liked Britney, all her true fans loved and thought she put on a great show, i'm so embarrassed that Australia is treating Brits like this

  35. 35

    You are amazing Britney

  36. 36

    im from Perth and went to the concert on saturday.
    BRITNEY WAS GREAT. pretty sure the media only interviewed the people who didnt like her. WHAT ABOUT THE OTHER 18,000 PEOPLE WHO ATTENDED. pissed me off to see every1 saying she was crap when she was great!

  37. 37


  38. 38

    i understand being pissed with not having enough large monitors…but if they were really brit fans (and paid any attention to the media news) they would know shes NEVER sang live. ever. so i dont know what they were expecting. - excpet the fact that her dancing is shit now….i guess there not gettin much of a show.

  39. 39

    Nobody should be going to see Britney for live vocals. You go to see her for a huge spectacle performance and dance numbers.

    If you want vocals, go see Alanis.

  40. ganza says – reply to this


    "This sounds like much ado about nothing." Are you perceptively challenged?
    Perez, you're adoration of the 'star' is all forgiving. Wake up. When Kylie came to America she showed up with both guns blazing. It might be acceptable for Britney and her peeps to deliver American audiences pablum but it doesn't fly where standards are higher. You're part of the problem Perez.

  41. 41

    when you lipsync your whole concert..and people still pay $$$$$ to see it…QUEEN OF POP! go britney!!!

  42. 42

    What about the other 20 000 people there? LOL I call bullshit.

    Britney fans know what to expect, and respect her studio work. Perez, personally I think your reporting towards Britney is very backhanded and I hope people realize that.

    I don't believe this until I see an INTERVIEW with this ignorant concert go-er.

    Honestly, the King of Pop himself lipsynched, Madonna, Janet, Christina has, Beyonce has.

    If you're going to point fingers at one, point at them all.

  43. 43

    Also her body is beautiful.

  44. Laury says – reply to this


    This is stupid. The joke's on them if you ask me. If you're a Britney fan, or even if you're not, you KNOW that Britney never sings live. Yet they still paid to see her in concert. Idiots.

  45. 45


  46. 46

    NOT all of Australia rallied against her. i love britters woo

  47. 47

    UGHH this has all been blown way out of proportion.

    The Perth fans loved the show. Who cares what some stupid bitch thought, and oh how sad! You couldn't see Britney! Then maybe next time you won't buy the CHEAP seats.

    I have loveseats for Brisbanes show in two weeks.

    So effing excited!

    Australia loves Britney =D

  48. 48

    Britney is a hack. People were also scared of your oppening video for the show. You failed to mention that part.

  49. 49

    I love Britney but she's not a stage performer and she is clearly not raw talent. I agree with the Aussies but its clear and well known that she lip syncs so they can't be upset because their the ones that bought the tickets knowing this fact. Pink and Beyonce are the only female artists out there that I would pay money to go see live. I've heard Britney Spears sing live only twice, the first time was when she sang The Way You Make Me Feel with Michael Jackson and her vocals where SO weak (but I don't think anyone's voice is going to be that great when your singing with the King Of Pop and greatest entertainer to ever live who's been performing since he was 8) , and the second time I heard her sing live was at a concert from a few months ago where she did an Alanis Morissette song and her vocals were once again weak.

  50. 50

    you know there is a lot of singers who lip synched but lower your cost for the tickets. my father and I talked about this matter years ago about singers like Janet Jackson, N Sync and Britney Spears. he said "who cares if they lip sync or not I just want to see the artist" I like to see the artist too but sing at least a handful of songs. I understand that artists dance a lot and can't hold enough breath to sing but at least take your time and actually sing some of the slow songs. give us a reason to buy your tickets.

  51. Monza says – reply to this


    well you sure are one to complain about nothing, perez. (sarcam!)

  52. 52

    This has nothing to do with Britney. Have you read the net lately? Australians hate Americans.

  53. 53

    Its not news that she doesnt sing live, I saw her in concert and she is a performer and put on a fun show…If you dont like it dnt go see her, its kind of crazy they are bitching like they are shocked she lip sung..I didn't even notice nor cared but Im a fan I guess. At least she knows if she danced like that and attempted to sing it would sound like shit unlike some oter peformers like katy perry who did it anyways and sound horrible

  54. 54

    I live in Australia and the only reason a few people were pissed (and i literally mean a few) is because we're so spoilt with live talent in Australia (like Jet, Sia, Delta) that it's hard to accept that not all "artists" offer the same quality. Even the Veronicas perform live and they're pretty produced and poppy.

  55. Maryg says – reply to this


    maybe americans are used to paying top dollar for lip synching and below par performances but we expect to have a performer actually sing, what sort of justification are you making perez that it's britney what do you expect? well then she should have on her tickets stamped "totally lip synched" and charge accordingly, what a greedy bitch!

  56. 56

    agreed perez! That what concerts are about ppl! I paid $200 for my tickets and I could barely even see her…. they said I was in the 6th row but it turns out it was in the standing general admission section. BUT I still had a great time! Also besides Britney is not at her best still… that's obvious. So don't go if you were expecting to see the old britney. DUH

  57. 57

    Britney has always lip synced… the concert has been around for quite a while now…its all over youtube…its pretty obvious that this comeback wasn't any sort of reinvention…its just britney doing what she's always done. I'm not aruing that this tour is amazing, epic, revolutionary, good, bad, whatever…I'm just saying that whoever bought these tickets and thought that they were in some way short-changed, you really need to get a television/computer/radio because this really was a no brainer. Spend your money on another concert if you want live singing, aerial performances, crowd surfing…because its blatantly obvious that these will never be staples in a Britney Spears concert. PS… this woman has her life choreographed in all aspects, so don't expect her to go off script cuz we all know how that went

  58. 58

    why is this news?

  59. 59

    DUDE. it came out before the circus tour even started that britney would be lip syncing. they knew what they were buying, and they bought it anyway.

  60. mmmd says – reply to this


    Speaking as a person living in perth i do believe its understandable that people who went were upset. no one is disputing britney is an amazing performer but charging $200 for her first show which was sold prior to the statement from the USA confirming her show was not performed live. Her second show on the saturday night was then sold for a considerably reduced price of $50. So understandably ticket holders who did fork out the extra $150 would be pissed.
    Perth is the most isolated city in the world and its a shorter trip to fly overseas than to sydney or melbourne so most bands that have an australian tour generally miss perth out. this possibly exaccebated anger in concert goers as they were forced to fork out the same amount for a singer that wasnt live.

    anywhos. my friends went an saw it and said she was epic, and personally i would have gone for the show. after all we're in a economic crisis so all to their own. i was unfortunate to not go as i have exams!! eek

  61. 61

    Sorry, just can't see anything interesting about her. If people know she's lipsyncing and still wanna shell out dough to see her, well that's on them.

  62. 62

    If she is going to lip synch, then she should market her show, not as a concert, but as "Britney dancing to her soundtrack." Otherwise she is perpetrating a fraud on her customers. For that, it is entirely reasonable for them to be pissed at her.

  63. 63

    Re: bexxtter – agreed!!!

  64. 64

    I don't mind so much that she lip syncs because she is dancing quite a bit and sorry if you are really moving you lose your breath and can't sing at all. But I was very disappointed when I went to her concert and had nose bleed seats and couldn't see her whatsover. It could have been the ugly perez hilton on stage instead of her and no one could have known. Get some jumbotrons already brit.

  65. 65

    All of Austrailia? From what I have read.. It is ONE reporter trying to make a name for herself by making up a bunch of BS

  66. 66

    Don't bother trying the "Australians hate Americans so that's why Brit got panned". I'm from Perth and spoke to lots of people who went to the concert. If you were up close and were happy to settle for mediocrity, then BS rocked. If you were not, and weren't content to put up with screen shots of her dancers the whole night, and hearing her record play through the speakers, then most people thought that her intials, BS, were apt.

  67. 67

    I saw Britneys Circus Concert, met the tour manager, and it is a FABULOUS performance. She dances, changes costumes, flies in the air, interacts with props and acrobats–how could they expect her to be singing too? And actually, the manager told me that in one of the songs where Britney is actually seated, she does do her own singing and she sounded great. but the concert is a circus. you dont see circus performers doing their own singing. deal with it australia!

  68. 68

    I went to the concert, i thought it was good. Thing about Britney is she is a good performer but she has the potential to be a Great performer and its all over minor things such as Interacting with the crowd and possibly singing at least 3 songs live. As for people that say she 'Can't sing' I'm very critical and when she sang everytime live i thought it was beautiful. As for Dancing that woman can shake it and oh yeah shes way hotter in person then in pics!

  70. 70

    The reality is that most currently popular "singers" do not have the vocal chops to sound all that fabulous performing live so MANY of them lipsync.. There are even some performers with strong vocals that lipsync at their concerts because their concerts are more about dancing/extravaganzas and it's difficult to sing properly when you are huffing and puffing from dancing your butt off.
    I'm not saying I agree with lipsynching, personally - at the price of most tickets, I say go buy the artist's entire catalogue on cd - but if you like the whole performance aspect and just enjoy the vibe of being at a concert, then go and don't complain. It is more often than not that the singer is NOT singing live.

  71. 71

    Those Aussies need to chill. Putting on a performance is very exhausting and I'm sure they knew what to expect. If she just stood and sung and barely moved-they would still complain!

  72. 72

    Lets see here. She's been touring for almost a year doing lip sync stuff and they thought her concert there would be somehow different? oh lol-what a bunch of stupid aussies. Secondly, it's not up to her to pack extra television screens just for them. Sheesh. Whine, whine, whine. They are damn lucky she even included their stupid island.

  73. 73

    Y'all mate choose wrong concert. If you want to see some real live concert music then go & watch other musician like John Mayer or Green Day.

  74. 74

    These Aussies are right. A singer in concert should sing, simple as that.

  75. 75

    I agree… What did they expect? So stupid. They are making a big deal about something they could have known for almost 8 months!

  76. 76

    i love her and it doesn't matter what anyone says about her….she is awesome!!!! pop stars aren't supposed to be able to just sing. it's all about the performance. Can Madonna really sing?????

  77. 77

    Re: Olives – Sweetheart - EVERYONE hates Americans

  78. 78

    I don't care what people say, she is Awesome! Pop stars aren't just about singing. you have to be able to perform, too! Look at Madonna! could she REALLY sing?

  79. 79

    Hmmm… I dont remember going to any rallies… or rallying, or any rally-esque activities. But apparently I rallied against Britney. I dont remember even giving her a seconds thought.

    Curious. COuld it be that Perez is exaggerating/making shit up?

    Anywhoo looking at the media reports here (where perez is NOT) it would appear that she looked bored and didnt talk to the audience, and can barely dance. That appears to have annoyed some fans - everyone already knew she didnt/can't sing. It would annoy me too if I for some reason had a full frontal labotomy and turned into a Britney fan and went to her concert. Show a bit of appreciation for your fans BRitney!

    Then again she's probably heavily sedated with antipsychotics - has anyone thought of that?

  80. 80

    Re: JoliAvocat – Hilarious! yeah stupid Aussies for being fans of BRitney and going to her concert!

    Seriously there is NO accounting for taste is there.

    Not eve sure why she came here though - from what I read her concerts have failed to sell.

  81. 81

    Oh, this is bullshit. They knew that she is lip-synching all the time. They just want everything: go to the concert AND want they money back. So there's a possibility that the show won't cast them anything.

  82. 82

    britney's a joke…perez is an idiot…lip-syncing is the lowest form of performing, what ever happened to real musicians and singers and not these plastic fakes

  83. 83

    Im surprised the lyp synching passed here in the states. Its pretty shameful it did…I swear people here are a bunch of tools

  84. 84

    Re: rosie111 – Yeah, I was going to say.. "All of Australia" did not rally against her. I think most of Australia couldn't give a flying fuck.

  85. 85

    brit sucks

  86. 86

    Put another SHRIMP on the BRITNEY!

  87. 87

    This is Britney what did y'all expect, still im planning on seeing her and i can't wait, everyone knows she's always lip-syncing so do a lot of other famous people, and y'all love to hate her, she's finally back to her old self and im sure if she was singing live y'all would say she was a shit singer and what a waste of money it seems either way she can't win :)

  88. 88

    It's nothing because people like you plague this country and don't mind paying 1,500$ to see her lip sync an entire performance. Now I work hard for my money and even tho I like Britney, I would never give her my hard earned money to see her fake her way thru any show. I grew to like her for her singing abilities. She is a singer not an actress. I don't want to pay to see her dance allover the place, I can see anyone do that at a local club for free.

  89. 89

    Britney’s Australian fans love her and her concert, just because a few people walk out does not mean they represent the other 18,000 fans at her concert. The Australian press have bulled Britney from the moment she landed here. The truth is in the pudding her fans have spoken on her blog, and we love her. I've been and I loved it and yes she lip-synched but at least she is open and honest about it, unlike other artist.

  90. 90

    LMFAO ! HELLO !!! EARTH TO AUSSIES….This is britney we are talking about. What rock were they hiding under??????

  91. 91

    They aren't fans if they don't know Britney doesn't usually sing live at concerts. Idiots, what did they think?

  92. 92

    I went to the Perth show and it was bizarre! The one song she sang live was amazing I dont understand why she didnt sing more live?

    Angepana, go crawl up your own arse like the rest of East Coast Australia!

  93. 93

    i see both sides. I mean she is a singer… so why wouldn't she sing live? But i'd still pay to see her concert even if she was lip syncing as long as she preforms well.

    As far as moniters go, i definitely understand that.. i went to a jonas brothers concert with my younger cousin and some younger girls i babysit for… i bought "cheap tickets" ($50 each) but i knew that the pavillion has a bug jumbotron and the way there stage was set up our seats seemed to be in an amazing spots. Except Jonas brothers lighting was below the jumbotron(which was not on) and was eye level with us… so i spent over $100 plus to stare at lighting and a guy hanging to do spot light.. not cool and extremely unenjoyable

  94. 94

    I just want to reiterate seeing as everyone is defending the indefensible… Concert goers COULDN'T SEE BRITNEY. The big screens in the stadium never got her on camera. Ppl were so far back they didn't actually SEE her the entire night. Lip synching aside, how would you like to spend two hours watching her back up dancers on the screen? That's what people were most upset about. The whole thrill of going to a concert is to see your idol in the flesh. This didn't happen for A LOT of people.

  95. 95

    is a bad news of britney and perez said brit is bad bla bla…

  96. 96

    She is an entertainer. You pay for the whole experience and performance. Suck it the fuck up.

  97. 97

    Have to say, Britney's GOT NO TALENT! She's a cheerleader who had a pushy mother. Still a bit puzzled as to why they would have bought tickets in the first place. Or why anyone would.

  98. 98

    Damn that booty looks fat and juicy.

    Anyone that does not know Britney lip syncs by now, they are idiots.

  99. 99

    Re: Lysette

    I'm Australian and the majority of people knew she would be lip synching, so not all Australians have been "hiding under a rock" sweetheart. The media have completely blown this out of proportion, there was an extremely SMALL amount of people who walked out (that ended up being interviewed), and seriously, if anyone who has gone to any of her shows during this tour thought she wasn't going to be lip synching I don't know what they were expecting to see. Sure it would be nice if she could actually attempt to sing her own songs live (look at Pink, she is freaking phenomenal) but lets face it, you aren’t necessarily going to a Britney concert to see a singer: your going to see a performance. The lip synching “controversy” has followed her during her entire tour, not just here in Australia, I’m sure it will all blow over :)

  100. 100

    PEREZ can u stop catogorizing it as all aussies! fuck just cuz people in perth got the shits.. Im soo excited to see her in sydney!
