Britney Spears lipsyncs to Sia singing her song.
Oh Britney, it was all going so well.
Night two of Brit Brit’s big return from her summer of Fraps and an unfortunate video has appeared on Instagram of Brit Brit lip-syncing. ‘Britney, lip-syncing?! Quelle Surprise!’ I hear you cry, but this was a particularly embarrassing incident.
When it was time to perform Brit’s latest ballad ‘Perfume’ her sound engineer appears to have pushed up the wrong fader resulting in Britney’s ‘vocals’ being barely audible, drowned out by backing vocals from the unmistakable Sia Furler.
Someone is going to get a firm turn of Team Britney’s backhand tonight for this mess and Daddy Spears is going to create a “No Cheese Grits For You” list from here on in. Brit Brit probably walked off stage afterwards and was like “Did y’all hear mah voice, oh mah god y’all I sounded AMAZEENG! I didn’t even feel like ah was singing, isn’t that crazay?”
It’s one thing to lip sync to your own vocals on a song. It’s quite another to lip sync to your backing vocalist’s. Probably not super wise given that there are already questions over how much singing on your own songs you actually do these days. Le sigh, team Britney is always so close to a slam dunk and then they snatch it back away.
Anyway, Brit Brit looked great and lip-synced that shit power hard, but let’s get down to the REAL question of the night, what the hell was on her head?
After Brit Brit launched the show yesterday with a wig which looked like the dumpster baby of Kim Zolciak and a bag of wire hangers, I half expected her to sashay onto the stage with a special from the Michelle Williams’ Destiny’s Salon of Elegant Wigs on her head.
Brit Brit instead wore the exotic nylon sea-creature that was living on her head from last night squished back into a tight headband to give her a 60’s look which im sure she thinks is fun, cool and smells like vanilla candles.
You gotta give the girl credit, despite the atrocious wig situation that unfolds on her head every passing night of her #PieceofMe residency, she looks amazing and is giving it some welly. It’s only a matter of time before someone leaves a bag of cheetos around backstage though, and then we’ll be back to square one.
