Britney "Upset" By Australian Fans

| Filed under: Britney SpearsAustraliastic

wenn2459926brit__opt1.jpg

Britney Spears' first tour in Australia continues to feel the heat and it's upsetting the pop princess!

After being criticized by the Australian media for lip-syncing (duh!) and reports of fans walking out of Brit Brit's show, her tour promoter quickly came to her defense saying:

"Britney is aware of all this and she’s extremely upset by it. She’s a human being. I’m embarrassed, with such a big international entourage here with Britney, to be part of the Australian media when I see that kind of totally inaccurate reporting.”

We really don't understand all of the fuss. Britney has ALWAYS lipsynched her performances and everyone knows this — and doesn't care! It's about the dancing and the "incredible spectacle" of the show!

Keep it up Australia or you can be sure Britney won't be going down under on her next tour!

    I'm Australian and dont care! its only like 10 people in the whole country who care, and its reflecting bad on everyone which is really annoying!! We dont care, we just want a show, which is what she brings, so i think everyone needs to settle down because we DONT CARE!!!



  2. 2

    Yeah, I don't get the outcry, either. You go to see someone who can really sing, like Mariah Carey or Whitney Houston, and you expect her real voice. They don't put on the *show* that Britney does. Britney is strictly an entertainer. She does not have a good voice. It has to be manipulated electronically to sound decent. If they don't like that she lip-syncs, then I guess they shouldn't have purchased tickets.



  3. 3

    OMG! you called her Princess of Pop! yay



  4. 4

    i'm glad people are finally speaking up about this. she needs to start singing live. concerts are supposed to be the place where you prove that you can sing, that the person people hear on the album is you. i can't believe the u.s. and so many other countries have let her get away with this for so long. madonna puts a big show on just like she does and she still manages to sing live. yeah she may not have the greatest voice but it's hers. same goes for beyonce, shakira, and so many others. they sing live at their concerts. those who say that it's not about the singing are ridilous, the singing is part of the show. you people are stupid paying $200 to go watch her mime, i can do that in front of the mirror thank you!



  5. 5

    Honestly, Perez, Britney's lipsyncing was mentioned by one journalist who interviewed a few stupid and self righteous fans. 'Australia' doesn't actually care. YOU are making this a problem and YOU are why Britney is upset, because your website has become a valid form of journalism. Just because Perez writes it, doesn't mean it's true. Find something new to write about. This is all bullshit.



  6. 6

    Old news! You are so behind (T)(M)(Z)!!!!!



  7. 7

    Everyone on the planet knew about this except Australians???

    MAYBE THEY SHOULD GET SLIMMY TO DO THE REST OF THE SHOWS? hOW'S THAT LABEL GOING SWEETY? HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HAHA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HAH A HA HA HAHAHAHAHH HAHAHAH H AHAHA HA HA HA HA HA HA

    This isn't the last of Britney going "down under," if you catch my meaning…



  12. 12

    this fucking aussies r gonna break brits spirit and she is never gonna tour in south america =(



  13. 13

    Way to MISREPORT!!!! Fans were also upset that there were no large monitors, so most people couldn't even SEE her. If you had bothered to read the entire 'fan' quote you posted earlier you would know that, fat fuck.

    Also, everyone in the world deserves a refund from that moron- even the ones who had better sense than to go to her concert.



  14. 14

    WHO WANTS TO PAY TO SEE BRITANEY LIPSYNCH!???? LAME LAME LAME
    Australians have standards for the performers they pay to see, obviously American's dont! BIG FAT LAME OOOOOOOOOOOOO Britney FAT Spears!



  15. 15

    I'm from Australia and a Britney fan but would have to agree…she should be singing live! I totally understand that when doing hard dance choreography she would need to mime…however i saw her in London and 1, she didnt even sing her ballads, 2 she doesnt even dance as full out as she used to, 3 she walks around alot, and 4 she hardly spoketo the audience…even one part of the 'speaking' was pre recorded. as a professional dancer and singer it is a little shocking that she just doesnt seem to care and the tour seems like a chore to her…shame.

    i wasnt a beyonce fan but i must say she gives it her all…

    its time britney cut the strings, started to sing live and wrote some of her own tracks.



  16. 16

    STFU Perez!
    I'm Australian and I, for one, don't care that she lipsynchs!
    Theres like maybe 2 people who are upset, and idiot 'journalists' like you blow it up.

    YOU are the problem here.
    NOT Australia.
    NOT the Fans.
    NOT Britney.

    YOU and other shitty, bored 'journalists'

    I have to agree with you on this one. Australian fans are really stupid. Britney has always lip-synched, it's not like this is news to anyone. Yet they still paid to see her in concert, what did they expect? That she was suddenly going to start singing live just for them? If you can't stand the idea of her lip-synching, then just don't go see her in concert, simple as that. Although, this could be a good wake-up call for Britney, maybe she's finally gonna start focusing on practicing her vocals instead of just the choreographies. After all, she's supposed to be a singer. That's what singers do, they practice their vocals.



  18. 18

    1) the concert is not about dancing. Britney does not do a whole lot of dancing anymore. Something I've noted in my blog.

    2) the show is pretty shitty. I was disappointed but not because of the LS

    3) anyone who expects britney to sing live every night for almost a year is out of the fucking mind..



  19. 19

    Well at least we know you still call her the Princess Of Pop! Lol. But there can only be one Queen and that's Madonna. Seriously, everyone is a princess of pop as long as Madonna is still fighting the good fight.



  20. 20

    I don't understand why Britney can get away with lipsyncing while other performers cannot. She isn't any better then anyone else she just came out at the right time. She would be over if she didn't have her little mental breakdown to revitilize her career.



  21. 21

    Here's a quaint little Aussie saying for the pair of you - "Get a dead dog upya, ya fuckin carnt"



  22. 22

    Seems like a few people with taste and knowledge about what real music and entertaining means finally spoke out. All people's "duh's" are not gonna cover the fact that she sucks. You can put any pretty girl - and I haven't seen a pretty Britney in a while - with dance moves and a little personality up on the stage and you'll have a slightly different looking version of the same thing. She's interchangeable. And I feel very sorry for people who say "I don't care that she doesn't sing live". If you claim to be a singer and mutlitask, get a different job! Other singers can handle it, too, so it's not impossible. And charging $200 for a playback concert is just absurd. Her show is not that spectacular!



  23. 23

    I'm sorry but the stupid bitch should be singing - for all the money she earns I am sure she can manage it. People deserve to be upset by this - and your assertion that 'everybody knows' she lip-synches is total crap because I didn't know and I would be majorly pissed if I turned up to see any performer who couldn't be bothered to actually sing when I've spent $200 on a friggin ticket to their show.

    Its two-bit talentless hacks like this bimbo that make the music industry the lame dog it is today…

    im from aus and this is embarressing. I love Brit and am going to her concert. Its just a few idiots here wreck it for all of us. Dont listen to them.



  25. 25

    As and Australian…I am HIGHLY embarrassed!!!
    I was at the first Perth show - the FIRST Australian Britney Spears Show… I never witnessed anyone "storming out" nor did I hear a single complaint. I saw MANY and I mean MANY screaming fans, people getting out of their seats and dancing, people singing along…people loving Britney Spears.

    I am completely revolted by the Perth/ Western Australia media.
    No one EVER plays here because we are so far away from the rest of Australia..and when we do get a performer to come to play for us, our stupid pathetic media abuse them and give horrible reviews… eg Robbie Williams, Kylie Minogue, Elton John… I cant believe I still live in this pathetic, boring, useless city!!!

    On behalf of the REAL Britney & Music Fans of Perth…

    Miss Spears, I apologize. I thought your concert was amazing.. I was jumping outta my seat with every song! Your dancers were out of this world, the effects and of course you were truly brilliant. Please know that the Australian Media is bored of reporting on sport, daylight savings and the boat people..so they grab onto anything they can to make themselves feel better. I am embarrassed to be called an Australian because of these people.

    Well, if she is upset by this then maybe she should go take some of that money and see a singing coach so that she can start to sing "LIVE" for once, then maybe her fans won't walk out. DUH!!!! You wouldn't understand the fuss because you are an idiot!!!! Who cares if you think her shows are spectacular, other celebs bring the spectacular to there concerts and they still manage to sing live!!! So stop using that as an excuse because it is wearing slim, very, very slim!!! And the dancing isn't so great, if you call strutting around and a little arm movements and a little booty shaking. ;-( I wouldn't call that dancing. Sorry! Her manager is a moron and he is the one who should be embarrassed for defending her. I am sure Australia could give a shit if she leaves and never returns.



  27. 27

    If that's all it takes to get Britney to stay out of your country, then maybe we Americans should do the same to get her out of here, too. She is a complete fraud!



  28. 28

    it seems like it's the media always making a fuss about her lip-synching, not the fans. The fans don't care.

    They ALL had to know by NOW that Brit Brit LIPsynchs at her shows!!!! AH HELLO!!!!!!!!!! Don't buy a ticket IF you don't like it “`Dumbasses “` than complain! I was just as happy You tubing Brit's show “` for free.. :)



  30. 30

    I think all the media attention is a joke. I mean come on there has to be something more important to report on. I went to see Britney in Perth and thought it was a great show. I like a lot of people, was aware that she would be lip synching and didn't care. I was there to see Britney perform and it was worth every cent!!! If I was her, I wouldn't want to come back here. Its time for the Australian media to leave her alone, and find something interesting to write about. Go Brit!!!!!



  31. 31

    I love you Britney. I've been a fan since I was 10. You were my first concert and you were great!!!



  32. 32

    Im from PHILIPPINES & if i would have a chance to see BRITNEY SPEARS in a
    Concert , i'd be definitely so EXCITED to Go WATCH Her Concert…!!!
    I DONT CARE if she lip-syncing , here in PHILIPPINES we all LOVE BRITNEY SPEARS…!! she still an INCREDIBLE AMAZING ENTERTAINER & PERFORMER!!
    She's an INTERNATIONAL MEGA SUPER STAR..!!

    33

    Re: onceinawhile – Sorry to disappoint you but other celebs who great voices are also consider entertainers. I would like to mention a few names, Celine, Cher, Christina, Beyonce and the one and only (rip) Michael Jackson. They all have great voices and also have had spectacular shows. I mean Michael is and will always be known has the best entertainer who had a great voice. So I think people should stop using the excuse that it's Ok for Britney to lip-synch because she is a entertainer… pshhhhhhhhh!!!!



  34. 34

    but she cant even dance anymore…so if its about the dancing…she dont got shit goin for her anymore



  35. 35

    Those who thought she was going to sing live should have their head examined. She has always lipsync its a well known fact what would piss me off is the lack of work put into her song she hardly dances anymore. At least if you're not going to sing DANCE! These entertainers today are unoriginal and lazy.



  36. 36

    oi stupid aussies stop giving us other aussies that dont care a bad name… its britney bitch wat do u expect… i mean i may not like her as much but still ur giving us other aussies that dont care a bad name and I DONT LIKE THAT… LEAVE BRITNEY ALONE!!! who cares if she lip syncs… get over it… u want britney u get britney… u get what u paid for, to see britney that dont mean she has to be live or anything… besides we all know she doesnt sing live u should have know that as if shed change for us…

    Well, if they're WALKING OUT now, I'm pretty sure they'd care less if she came back on her next tour!

    She looks like a prize heffer in that outfit! EW EW EW EW EW! Cheetos anyone?



  41. 41

    I'm Australian and trust me, we've always known Britney has lip-synched all the way through her career. I know so many people who're dying to see her in concert and would never walk out on her. But seriously, no one can deny that Britney is no way near the entertainer she used to be, and obviously can't carry off the shows she used to, lip-synching and all. She's just not as good at it as she used to be, and people are noticing.



  42. 42

    She looks like a umpa lumpa



  43. 43

    that's the problem with music these days, it comes from a can, it's all
    protools magic…people want to see the artist perform live, to hear the sigh,
    the subtle changes the singer voice makes as they reach that note…it can be all auto tuned! might as well just buy the CD than go to the concert!



  44. 44

    shame on you australia.. shame on you. she did NOT have to go to australia she could have finished up in america, but she did this for YOU, the fans, and all you do is tear her apart, you scum should all be ashamed of yourselves !!!! i can guarantee you if she sat on a seat all night and sung all her songs accapella, you would still complain !! "oh, she never moved, she didn't dance", there is no winning with you scum!



  45. 45

    What a duche she is!! Quit fucking lip synching and charging for that shit! Just put a warning at the venues..DANCE review..no singing. Make up your mind whether youre a SINGER( not!!) or a dancer (YES).



  46. 46

    2 words MILLI VANILLI



  47. 47

    Perez u fool! You really need to get your facts sorted out. It is not the Australian fans who have a problem with Britney, it's the Australian MEDIA. Now learn to differntiate between those 2 words please. The media here are just pissed because Britney refused to do interviews and let them take pictures of her and because the media here has nothing better to do or say, they are constructing this whole fiasco for international attention. So now everyone thinks her fans are upset with her. this is completley untrue.

    I thought you were smarter than that Mario. In actual fact, i attended the Britney concert in Perth Australia and me and all my friends had the best night and not a single person stormed out. This was a fabrication made up and sensationalised by our bored, local media. Are you really that stupid that you can't see this? This is what the media does you damn idiot.



  48. 48

    I'm Australian. WE DONT REALLY GIVE A SHIT IF BRITNEY SINGS OR LIP SYNCS OR ANYTHING. Britney is a show woman, woop de doo. Don't care. I wish everyone would shut the hell up because the majority of us Australian's really do not give a fuck whether Britney is singing… we care almost as much as we care about what our prime minister just had for breakfast. Just keep the shit off our tvs, newspapers blah blah. We don't care.



  49. 49

    Fuck the Aussies WE LOVE YOU BRITNEY!



  50. 50

    When I go to a concert, I go to hear live music. I would rather see less dance then compromise on live music.

    There is a website that will let you listen to what Britney is singing in concert. It is pathetic.

    I can't believe Perez is saying "everyone knows". It's not ok.



  51. 51

    I just think if shes' going to lipsynch she should be a lot better at it by now, as she's a proffessional and been doing this such along time now.. haha



  52. 52

    I'm from Australia and honestly we have the right frame of mind when it comes to her lip-syncing, I for one wouldn't pay $200 just to see her prance around the stage faking it. We have class here, we want to see the REAL thing. Not the fake stuff, which everyone on here thinks is perfect. Who cares if Australia upsets her? It was one news article. Pfft, get over it lovey and start singing the real bloody thing!



  53. 53

    Re: LucianaRavioli – Spot on Luciana!!! I agree with everything you said and i am also from Perth. Perth is such a lame hole.

  54. who says – reply to this


    54

    Umm… Seems that international media is running with the whole "lip syncing" issue.
    Most reports actually here in Australia are talking about how it was a bad show. We all knew she was going to be faking it, as it was in the media before she arrived. But people are upset because she is half arsed dancing as well. You would except a massive performance if she wasn't going to be singing. A little flick of hair there and a flick there, doesn't make for a good show. Also, there were no live images of her on the big screen, which we all know is essential if you are performing to a big arena.
    I think she is an amazing strong girl. But some idiots have pushed her in to performing and working, when maybe she isn't ready too. Poor girl should be enjoying her self and her boys…

    Ship her back to plastic land. Yet another train wreak from the US slummin' it down under. If it's appreciated in the US, this kind of soulless crap where it's ok to be paid a fortune and only provide a half arsed effort then by all means fly her home where you can bathe in her unprofessional talentless aura.



  57. 57

    When I pay for a Britney ticket, I am paying for an EXPERIENCE! I would rather see her dance and perform than watch her sit on a stool and sing.



  58. 58

    Re: PAH Hate to break it to you, but Michael often lipsynched during his performances. Many do and not everyone realizes. The ones that don't - AREN'T MOVING. You don't see 15 costume changes in 90 minutes, billions of dance moves and the like. Celine Dion in Vegas lipsynced several of her performances that required "big" voices like the Titanic song while singing others live. One of the last, very last performers that doesn't was Bette Midler. Ballads are for a breather, you can't get that singing. Beyonce did it at the VMA's. A lot reason that it's the physicality of their shows, others reason that it's better to lipsync and put on a good show rather than to worry about coughing, burping, hacking whatever, etc. randomness that could come up during a show and ruining it. There are subtle hand signals even for performers to use to have the sound guys waiting to put on tapes if they need.



  59. 59

    The people who are complaining are just being ignorant brats.
    If britney came to my city, i would have paid alll the money in the world just to see her sit on stage and do nothing!



  60. 60

    Honestly if people here are SUCH FUCKING HYPOCRITES. Some of the artists you adore lipsynch, I'm talking Beyonce, MJ, Christina, Celene Dion, Mariah, Jennifer Hudson.

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

    Fine, diss her vocal ability if you don't like it, but don't act like she's the only one who does it. She does do it a lot, however she does sing Everytime and You Oughta Know.

    No artist, accept the ones who genuinely do sing 100% live ALL THE TIME. Don't be hypocrites, just because you don't like Britney.

    And Perez, you are a fucking backhanded douchebag to the max, you stretched this story out for 3 days, one all this information was out during one day.

    FUCK YOU.



  61. 61

    Re: _Revolver _ – I do not appreciate being referred to as scum; there are over 20 million of us Australians, and you are making us all seem like awful people. There have been plenty of Americans who have said and done stupid things in the past, yet I don't label your whole country as scum. It was only a few people who even commented on the concert here in Australia, and then stupid Perez Hilton turned everything around and made it seem like this massive issue.

    Re: omggchristie – ME TO!



  63. 63

    Shit. I hope they keep her and she NEVURR comes back to the states. By the size of the Michelin Woman, she enjoys eating at least as much as touring. Glad to know the stress is not affecting her appetite.



  64. 64

    Well you know, the can ask for quality as much as they want.

    Re: MikeMike

    Oh yer it's the whole of freaking Australia against her. Ignorant Idiot. That goes for you 2 perez.

    It's one media outlet who has completely blown this out of proportion that's all, and perez, stop with the "keep it up Australia" there aren't 23 million of us going on about this! Seriously, britney has had people slandering her over the lip synching for her ENTIRE tour, not just the shows in Australia. She's a big girl, once she gets to the other major cities within Australia I'm sure she will see that all her fans really do love her and as she has had the media completely rule her life previously, I'm sure she realises it's just all publicity, and she knows better than to believe every piece of media gossip. Perez stop reporting it then maybe everyone else can move on, it's old news!

    BRITNEY SPEARS: QUEEN OF PLAYBACK she has 0 TALENT!



  68. 68

    Love it, finally people are fessing up to her lip synching, I don't even know how you call that a show. Stick a britney clone out there and you would still be impressed even if it wasn't the real thing? This is why fans of britney stay losing forever, I couldn't ever say to anyone in the world that I would go to a britney show without losing some self-respect first.



  69. 69

    The fact that anyone is still paying to see Britney Spears frankly stuns me. So if they are stupid enough to buy tickets they don't get to complain.



  70. 70

    "Keep it up Australia or you can be sure Britney won't be going down under on her next tour!"

    GOOD! We have enough talented musical acts here that are capable of singing live, and singing well to care in the slightest if Britney never brings her over-priced and poorly-performed concert here EVER again.

    "Britney has ALWAYS lipsynched her performances and everyone knows this — and doesn't care! It's about the dancing and the "incredible spectacle" of the show!"

    When Britney's performance (aka "incredible spectacle") is brilliant (or "spectacular") enough to overshadow the fact she's lyp-synching instead of giving a "live" performance (as concerts are supposed to be), then we can talk about allowing her back on our shores. Until then, you can keep her there.



  71. 71

    Some people are actually naive enough to believe that a concert means that you are paying to see a live performance. We can watch Palladium or rent DVDs to see a "show", but a live performance means ACTUAL performng LIVE. Too bad perforers these days can't deiver the goods. Britney and her contemporaries would never have made in in the 1970s or earlier because the techology to fake thier performance didn't exist.



  72. 72

    the only thing unfitney is good at is being a trashy hobag. she cant sing live because she just does not possess that kind of talent, and really i dont blame ppl for being pissed that she lip syncs. and to charge hundreds of dollars to watch her fat ass dance around is bullshit!!



  73. 73

    Re: The Dahlia Post – -
    -
    what are you kidding me??? she's supposed to be a performer fer cryin' out loud - old Babs out in Vegas was beltin' them out AT LEAST two hundred nights a year and she's just one of hundreds of TRUE artists who understand that it's hard fucking work - which is a comcept that old Brit, true to her white trash roots, struggles with

    74

    I agree with perez! It's not about her singing at all….she puts on one hell of a show. If they don't like it then she shouldn't tour there again period.

    Sorry Australia…next time don't complain!



  75. 75

    I think that Britney should sing live she has a spectacular voice and it's not like her movements prevent her from using her voice, I think she was great in her early days but is getting lazy, you have to remember we have just had PINK out here not that long ago and PINK blew everyone away with her voice and show. Aussie expect more and so they should, Britney is getting lazy.



  76. 76

    Re: PAH – No, I know what you are saying, and you are right. I do think that the other people are entertainers, AND they have amazing voices. In my opinion, Britney has a terrible voice. So I was trying to say that she is ONLY an entertainer. I have never thought she sounded good, but understand why someone would want to be entertained by her at a concert…it's a show. But you are right that people certainly do, and can have both. I just don't think she is one of them, and that's probably not going to change.



  77. 77

    Britney should sing live, I think it's generally bad form, but people that were expecting her to sing live should have looked on youtube recently to find she hasn't sung live since 2003 with Madonna.

    But Lip-syncing is bad form and lazy, she is not the princess of pop and you need to consider Aussies just had PINK out here for over 2 months not that long ago and she blew people away with everything she does.

    Britney needs to step up her game her performances are good enough to say she has to lip-sync.



  78. 78

    Why would anyone think she really sings?



  79. 79

    Good for Australia ! It looks like unlike us, they have the balls to call Britney for what she is, a fraud. Sorry Perez, but I have a feeling you, your blog, and a lot of the bullshit fake fraudy celebrities of this decade will fall soon.



  80. 80

    You Americans should follow Australian's steps. 51 year old MADONNA can pull a two hour concert dancing like there's no tomorrow and singing live. So can Lady Gaga, Kylie Minogue, Beyoncé, and other divas.

    There is absolutely NO EXSUCE for Britney to lipsynch. She doesn't even dance that hard anymore. Her Circus tour is pretty bland. She used to be so good. It's a shame that her manager and Perez are outraged by this. If anything, you should be outraged at her lipsynching even when she's not dancing. Bullshit.



  81. 81

    Geezus you sure know how to dribble bullcrap Perez!!…
    FIRSTLY i attended the Perth concert in AUS, and yes people walked out.. i myself was one of them.. SECONDLY i don't give a shit if Britney Lip-Sync's as far as i'm concerned she's Britney.. i personally don't think the world will ever see her peform again after this tour!… THIRDLY the reason i walked out had nothing to do with the lip syncing.. Brit barely ecknowledged the crowd, had her back turned to us the whole time.. her moves were no where near like the clips from other shows in which i'd seen.. If you sat in general admission seats you couldn't see a thing as the big screens played images of circus animals and filmclips.. I'm disapointed that she made no effort at all to interact with the crowd, the show setup its self was a rip off (and i'm partly blaming that on the organisers and not britney herself) People left because it was simply just one of the worst put together concerts i've ever seen and even our small time non-signed bands like Birds of Tokyo are more interactive with fans than britney was.. To be honest for 17,000 people.. cheapest tickets being 200 bucks.. Brit's made a packet of us.. She can lip sync all she wants. Other ppl do it.. they just don't admit it.. BUT PLZ Britney.. just be nicer to your fans.. we're making you rich.. all u have to do is smile, talk, sign a few autographs, touch a few hands.. and we'll be happy!!

    AUSTRALIAN FANS ARE RIGHT!!! CHECK BRIT BRIT OLD PERFORMANCES AROUND 2001 AND EARLIER ON YOUTUBE. SHE SANG LIVE THEN!!!!!!!!!! WTF HAPPENED SPEARS??? TOO MANY SMOKES, DRUGS, ALCOHOL??? PRETTY MUCH THE STORY…



  83. 83

    FAT, talentless, has-been, over-the-hill, mentally retarded hillbilly trash. As an American, I'm ashamed to say she's one of "ours". She looks like a brainless two-bit hooker who should have retired years ago.

    Why doesn't she stay home and take a few courses on how to be a decent parent to her two sons instead of parading her enormous body all over the world attempting to entertain? While she's at it, she might want to learn how to read and do simple mathematics…

    I'm sorry, Australia…WE ARE NOT AMUSED by this worthless piece of white trailer trash.



  84. 84

    YOU GUYS ARE MOSTLY IDIOTS!!! BRITNEY HAS BEEN RECEIVING SHITTY REVIEWS THE WORLD OVER FOR HER LIPSYNCING AND UNINSPIRED LIP DANCING ACT. JUST CAUSE PEOPLE KNOW BRIT LIP SYNCS IN VARIOUS COUNTRIES DOESNT MEAN THE CRITICS OR FANS APPRECIATE IT AS A CLASS ACT. LMAO.



  85. 85

    people should consider this - britney is unstable and is probably sedated etc so she cant dance like she used to. cant sing cos she never could.
    -
    apparently though she totally ignores her crowd and doesnt even talk to them beyond one hello. that would annoy me - not that i would ever go to a britney concert. went to an RHCP concert years ago and they ignored the crowd and acted all bothered to be out there - that turned me off them big time!



  86. 86

    ok for the 5 yr olds on this site RHCP = red hot chili peppers.



  87. 87

    i just wanna' know… what the fuck is she wearing…? she doesn't even have nice costumes!?



  88. 88

    I think that maybe britney should go on a long hiatus…she can afford it. Some people I know have been to the concert and are disappointed with it. She seems a little dead on stage.



  89. 89

    Britney is paid well to SING. She's a SINGER. She sells SONGS.
    Time to grow-up Brit, hire a good voice coach, and SING.
    You're paid to SING.
    I don't want to hear how she's a "performer" .. then join the circus or get a magic act in Vegas.



  90. 90

    Oh, god, who gives a crap? If you don't want to hear lypsincing, then don't buy tickets to a Britney Spears show.



  91. 91

    i am aussie too
    i understand that people will be upset if she doesn't come back but jeez what does she expect if this is her first tour here in god knows how long she has been around
    australians do however love LIVE music which she is not but it is a widely known fact that she does not sing live. so how the hell can all the people that bought tickets complain when they surely knew she would not be singing live
    its their own stupidity for spending stupid amounts of money on her ticket



  92. 92

    Spoke to someone who's girlfriend shelled out $200 to go to the Perth concert, only to see 1 1/2 hrs of BS on stage. Costume changes took 10 mins during which video clips of her songs were played on screen. She didn't interact with the crowd and people complained you couldn't see her unless you had close seats. Lip synching isn't the issue, it's the undewhelming pace and content of the show that bothered a lot of fans. Sure some ppl liked the concert but more than a few were pissed off about it. Beyonce was 1000 times better!



  93. 93

    YUCK! Shitney needs to understand she's NOT sexy. She's a HAG.

    People who waste their money on Shitney need to be found and shot.



  94. 94

    Perez you are a fucking retard.



  95. 95

    Re: pusspuss – damn straight she should have been singing
    and one of the best things about seeing a live act is when they screw up. it is all part of the fact that not everyone is perfect and can hit the note perfectly every time. that just adds to the show.
    bitch should try singing. if she wants to milk everyone for their hard earned money she can put in a lot more effort than she has been putting in



  96. 96

    I saw her in montreal a couple of month ago and that was my first time.. i did expect that she was about to lypsinc some of the song but never i would have though that she was about to lypsinc the entire show… i would definitly not go to another show…. gaga would never ever do that!! right perez?



  97. 97

    Who cares! Her talent outweighs all the other..



  98. 98

    I'm Unsure if this has already been said but her first show's were in the Burswood Dome, Western Australia. There were 75,000 people at her show, i think the people who walked out are idiots, because you dont walk out of something that you payed $200 for. Everyone is saying it was the lip-syncing but i think most of it was the fact that she was not shown on the big screen at all, making it that only the people who where standing the ones able to see her. The Burswood Dome is not the best place to hold a concert and most West Aussies know this, but if you do have a big concert like Brit's in it you need to have camera's on them and the TV's showing that for the people who are sitting or standing at the back.



  99. 99

    OMG perez..I am australian and lets just clarify this story - it was one reporter who made up this story and then all the other media outlets jumped on board as its a slow news day. Dont make out that ALL australians are upset that britney didnt sing live as this wasnt the case at all. I guess your having a slow news day also to keep running this story.



  100. 100

    I don’t give a s*** and I am Australian, the problem that was raised in the media is that she advertised her show here as a "See Britney live" maybe we are a bit naive here and think when a SINGER says "live" it means they sing and dance live which makes up the live performance. 99.9% of Australian's didnt go to the concerts and wont care what is written in the media nor pay any attention to it.

    It is just a reflection of the whole pop industry… FAKE.. You dont need to be able to sing just have the money to put on an "incredible spectacle" and a teen audience to eat it up. If you wanna see a real "live" show check out a band, no lip-syncing just real music. That’s why I will see Pearl Jam when they arrive in Australia in a couple of weeks.
