This Just In: Britney Spears Lip-Syncs!

by at . Comments

OMG! Britney Spears does not sing live! Australia is just now getting this memo issued in 2003, apparently. Do you even get the Internet down there, mates?

Britney just arrived down under Thursday, but already she's the subject of government scrutiny over the fact that she'll be lip-synching portions of her shows.

Government scrutiny. What a great country. If this is what their elected officials have to worry about, we're living in the wrong place. Sydney here we come!

No, seriously. This is a real story. Virginia Judge, Minister for Fair Trading for New South Wales, said she is considering options to make sure fans aren't misled.

Britney's Circus tour tickets are going for more than $1,300, and while "it is Britney's 'prerogative' to lip-sync, it is my job to make sure consumers know what they are paying for up front," Judge said in a statement released by the government.

OMG WHAT? Britney doesn't sing live? Devastating and shocking.

One idea is to require disclaimers indicating that portions will be pre-recorded. They should also warn about expletive-laden tirades and wardrobe malfunctions.

Seriously, does anyone not know or care about this? It's no secret that many artists, including Spears, lip-sync at times during their elaborate stage shows.

We can't imagine anyone goes to see Britney live for the well-sung lyrics. They go to watch a hot girl gyrate on a stripper pole and dry hump backup dancers.

This isn't to say $1,300 isn't a ripoff. They play Britney Spears' "3" at strip clubs, too, and you can actually pay for a private dance there. Not that we know.
