First of all, I’ve scrounged up a bunch of pics of Brit strolling around Australia with no bra on. As always, you’re welcome. If there was ever a question as to the importance of proper support, let these pictures be your forewarning.
Enough of that; here’s why I’m moving to Australia: the Minister for Fair Trade of New South Wales wants to create some sort of disclaimer that informs patrons paying up to $1,300 a ticket to see Britney in concert that she’ll be, um, lip-synching. You just know that B is all excited — “I’m gettin’ my own law y’all!”
“It is Britney’s ‘prerogative’ to lip-sync, and 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.
One idea is to require disclaimers on promotional materials and tickets indicating that portions of a show will be pre-recorded.
It’s no secret that many artists, including Spears, lip-sync at times during their elaborate stage shows. And this Australian initiative may not have much effect on interest in Spears tickets, given that many of the shows Down Under are already sold out.
“Personally I would rather see a live set from a local artist,” Judge said, “but I am sure Britney’s fans will be treated to a spectacular show.”
I’m a huge fan of Brit’s music and I’ll always be her cheerleader. I think she’s made amazing strides to get her life back on track and once she starts wearing an underwire, I’ll be even more impressed with her accomplishments. Putting that aside, she’s a singer. I wouldn’t pay a thousand dollars for any concert ticket, but I wouldn’t pay twenty dollars for mime.
