Can Britney Spears possibly be as bad at singing as this video, allegedly from a 2001 Las Vegas concert but making the rounds this week, makes it seem?

If it's real, certain things really are better left unheard, and we should probably think twice before we start complaining that certain people lip-sync live ...

Yes, we know it's kind of unfair to point out how terrible she sounds, given that:

  1. We can't vouch for the authenticity of this viral video
  2. She's not even supposed to be singing, by design
  3. This is Britney Spears we're talking about ... it's not like this is some shocking reveal about someone previously believed to be a great vocal talent

Nevertheless, wow. This gives Farrah Abraham a run for her money.

NOTE: If you haven't heard Farrah "sing," you've got to. Just be forewarned that you can't un-hear it and glass objects around the house may suddenly crack:

Britney Spears was a guest on Alan Carr's UK program Alan Carr: Chatty Man last week and the pop superstar was asked to show off her skills with a whip.

If you've seen the Britney Spears "Work Bitch" music video, you know the singer doles out sexy punishment to backup dancers (and talks in a British accent).

Carr, naturally, told Spears that some of the people on his staff have been slacking off as of late, then asked Britney to whip them back into shape. Literally.

She obliged, cracking that thing left and right. Watch:

Of course, this being a TV interview with Britney Spears, it was a little hit or miss. She was more deer in the headlights than fierce dominatrix here.

There may not be even a slim chance of it happening, but Britney Spears votes for James Franco to fill the Fifty Shades of Grey void left by Charlie Hunnam.

She may not be alone in that assessment, either.

  • Work Bitch Singer

Asked about the Fifty Shades of Grey movie and who should play Christian Grey in a recent interview with London’s KIIS FM, the "Work Bitch" singer said:

“I love James Franco! I think he’s really cool.”

So does the girl who Franco helped get back at her ex with a cute Facebook photo. That was awesome. So Britney likely can count on her support.

As for why Spears is such a big fan of his?

Britney Spears is the mother of two adorable boys from her previous marriage to Kevin Federline, but she says she'd love to remarry and have more kids someday.

No pressure, David Lucado.

The "Work Bitch" songstress revealed on Germany's RTL network yesterday how much she would like to settle down and add to her little family.

"I'd like to have more kids, settle down... have kids, maybe twins, and get married," said Spears, who turns 32 in December. "That would be nice."

Earlier this year, in paying a visit to Mario Lopez on the Extra set, Britney shared a similar sentiment, and revealed that she would love a baby girl.

Britney Spears didn't have to dig too deep mentally to come up with the title for her eighth studio album. The star's latest effort will be called ... Britney Jean.

That's her middle name. So it totally makes sense.

"It's a personal album, and all my family, they always call me Britney Jean," she said. "It's like a term of endearment. I just wanted to share that with my fans."

Featuring "Work Bitch," Britney Jean drops December 3, one day after her 32nd birthday. It features collaborations with producers will.i.am and William Orbit.

Spears played coy when asked about any other notable guest appearances on the album. "You'll have to wait and see," she said, flashing her megawatt smile.

Britney Spears has long been championed as an icon within the gay community, and for a good reason. She's been an outspoken supporter of it, as well.

However, the "Work Bitch" singer ruffled feathers today with some of the comments she made during an interview on 99.7 NOW FM in San Francisco.

Speaking specifically about her gay following and whether or not she has a group of gay people that influences her work, Britney Spears responded:

"A lot of my hair stylists and my beauty team that I work with are gay so I hang out with gays a lot and I just think they're adorable and hilarious!"

Well intentioned as she may be, Spears recently came under fire for alleged "gay marketing" and angling to "exploit" her enormous LGBT fan base.

Comments like this are sure to raise some eyebrows and earn her some more criticism, but on the plus side, she didn't give her usual yes or no answers.

Contrary to recent reports, Britney Spears not only plans to sing live during her Las Vegas residency, she insists she has always has and will always do so.

Britney Spears spoke to Chicago's 103.5 KISS FM Friday about the forthcoming Planet Hollywood shows and rumors that she will lip-sync during them.

"I'm definitely going to be singing live," Spears said. "I always sing live."

"It doesn't sound so great all the time, but I always do. I do my best."

The report regarding the supposed lip-syncing was believed by many. In fact, Britney's live singing (or lack thereof) has been a hot topic throughout her career.

Britney Spears says a lot of sex goes into being Britney Spears, and her racy new music video for "Work Bitch" is certainly reflective of that admission.

It's hot. And provocative. And now banned in the United Kingdom ... partially.

Work, Bitch Photo

According to British media reports, the Britney Spears "Work Bitch" music video can only be viewed after 10 p.m. (really) due to its risque content.

No daytime airings on music channels, including MTV, will be allowed. Ironic, since Brit's now-ubiquitous Brit accent plays a big part in the video.

Channels are reportedly calling for Spears to release a "clean" edit of the music video to broadcast before 10 p.m. that is suitable for all audiences.

Britney Spears' dad and manager are responding to her comments about going farther than she wanted to, sexually, in her "Work Bitch" music video.

Jamie Spears, who is also Brit's legal conservator, and manager Larry Rudolph said in a joint statement that "Britney is never pressured into anything."

Britney: Work, Bitch!

"She reviews all creative material and for her 'Work Bitch' video she discussed toning down some parts in finding a balance of sexy and being a mom."

Conceding that there's a lot of sex involved in being Britney Spears, she said in a radio interview that felt she was being pushed too hard in this case.

Spears did not name names, but said she watched the "Work Bitch" music video, had the raciest scenes cut ... and is still uneasy about the finished product.

Britney Spears' "Work Bitch" music video is one wild ride. So much so that the 31-year-old mother of two herself admits she is a bit taken aback by it.

Speaking to The TJ Show on Thursday, she told radio hosts TJ and Loren that she actually had director Ben Mor edit the video to make it less provocative.

Yes, the Britney Spears "Work Bitch" music video could've been racier.

"Oh my god, we showed way more skin and did way more stuff for the video then what is actually there," Spears reveals. "Like, I cut out half the video."

"Because I am a mother and because, you know, I have children, and it's just hard to play sexy mom while you're being a pop star as well," Britney adds.

"I just have to be true to myself and feel it out when I do stuff."
