We're still not sure where we stand on this whole Britney Spears auto-tune scandal.
Perhaps you don't know either?
Well, to help us decide, Alien's producer William Orbit, who already went to bat for Brit, is back with even MORE to say on the topic
"…With songwriting today, many of us do it in a studio recording environment. The autotune goes on, the monitors get turned up, the lights are turned down, and the hunt for great melodies and lyrics takes center stage. (Mess up) the intrinsic pitching. Who cares? Just a shame that someone put it out there. Like, as if they posted (bad) takes from a movie. Or scans of scrunched-up sheets from the wastepaper basket under a writer’s desk? Or photos of the rind-bits left over from a chef’s finest a bolognese."
That's a good point!
Why is it that Britney's poor take was shown to the world, whereas a first draft of a novel is tucked far away?
William went on to say, via Facebook:
"Regardless of the fun and games that we have with studio production, the main thing to keep in mind with Ms Spears is that tens of millions (hundreds of millions?) of people enjoy the music. That’s pretty much the be-all and end-all of it. And charisma is charisma. No software ever invented can manufacture that."
TRUTH. Britney does have a ton of loyal fans who love her music, even if it is auto-tuned.
But what do you think about the whole ordeal? Is Britney just the victim of someone leaking her bad takes, or is our Princess of Pop starting to show signs of her reign coming to and end? You tell us…

P.S. Can we also just point out how perfect it is that some dude with the last name Orbit wrote a song called Alien? Genius.
