Is performing while “alive” the same as performing “live”? Pop diva Britney Spears seems to think so as she recently took to press to clap back at ongoing rumors of playback.
As her tour of Asia continues to rake in the big bucks, the Grammy-winner sat down with TV interviewers in Tel Aviv to address murmurs of lip syncing. Yes, the topic is nothing new for the songstress as it has plagued most of her nearly two-decade long career, but it appears she has had it with detractors slamming her with the accusation she’s branded as “simply untrue.”

“…because it’s really funny – a lot of people think that I don’t sing live… Because I’m dancing so much I do have a little bit of playback, but there’s a mixture of my voice and the playback. It really pisses me off because I am busting my ass out there and singing at the same time and nobody ever really gives me credit for it.”
The quote above comes less than a month after the ‘Toxic’ hitmaker was caught up in a lip-syncing scandal during a recent stop in Japan. See that by clicking here if you missed it.
