Britney Spears: Faking Abs in Las Vegas Show as Well as Vocals?

by at .  Updated at . Comments

Following a deluge of accusations regarding Britney Spears lip syncing in Vegas, the star is now being criticized for faking her abs as well. Yes, her abs.

Photos from opening night of Spears' "Piece of Me" gig at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino show her in some skimpy outfits. No surprise there.

The getups were so revealing, however, that fans got a long, hard look at Britney Spears, and some questioned if the singer's abs were the real thing.

Exhibit A: This photo posted by Brit herself on Instagram:

Britney Spears: Fake Abs?

Some critics were quick to wonder if (or just leave snarky comments stating as fact) her rock hard abs had been painted on. Which it does kinda look like.

Defenders noted that performers often use heavier body makeup specifically for the stage, where the bright lights tend to have a wash-out effect.

Hayley Hoover of beauty blog The Gloss cites Kim Kardashian as an example of a celebrity who uses contouring, shading, and makeup magic.

While Britney Spears "is naturally gorgeous and super fit," she observes. "You can’t expect her to wake up looking as rock-hard as a Twilight vampire."

Makeup or no makeup, fake abs or real abs, and vocals or lip-syncing, there's zero doubt Britney looks amazing and is working hard on that stage.

Her trainer, Tony Martinez, said that Spears has been doing "hardcore" Olympic-style training in preparation for the dance-heavy 90-minute shows.

Katy Perry was not impressed, but Miley Cyrus and Selena Gomez were, and she sold out her opening night at least ... so looks like it's paying off?

You be the judge, THGers. Check out some videos from her "Piece of Me" Las Vegas extravaganza and see the real/fake abs/vocals for yourself:

I don't see what the big deal is. Critics making something out of the nothing. Who cares if she paints on fake abs. Who cares if she lip-syncs.

She needs to sing for real not lip sync. People pay good money to go see her sing not use a CD.
