Britney Spears’ manager admits she can’t sing live

I don’t know whether it’s comforting or sad (or a little bit of both) that Britney Spears‘ longtime manager, Adam Leber, has admitted that there’s no way Britney can sing live during her Las Vegas shows. His explanation is due to all the dancing she does – and admittedly, she does bust her ass on the floor, 100% – not because she is actually incapable of singing well.

From Medium:

“To put on the show that she puts on, it’s virtually impossible to sing the entire time and do what she does,” Adam Leber told me. “She’s singing on every song, basically, when she has the ability to sing. There’s no way you can dance for 90 minutes straight and sing the entire time.”

Of course, this is completely against what he said before the show started, which was…

“Britney Spears will be singing live during her show (and) she will not be ‘lip-synching.”

Oh, dear. Even BritBrit herself promised to bring the live vocals, even if they’re “not so great”. All that being said, I don’t think anyone is at all surprised to learn that Britney doesn’t sing live during her shows. She never has sang live, and on the few occasions when she tried to, things… did not go well. Britney is an entertainer, a show-woman. We’re wrapped up in the Britney popstar persona, not in her singing talent – and thank God for that, or she wouldn’t be a star.

Should she sing live? Sure, but she should also be a good vocalist and she just isn’t. We’ve accepted that, so we should probably just accept that homegirl is going to move her mouth on top of a backing track and get over it, eh? Given the high ticket sales, I’d say most people have.

Britney Spears gained 30 pounds in Las Vegas

Britney Spears has been doing really well with her Las Vegas residency – in fact, it’s the city’s best-selling show of all time, which is awesome. But of course, we can’t just celebrate her accomplishments, we have to talk about her “faults”. This time, it’s about how she apparently got “fat” and gained 30 lbs throughout the course of doing the show.

From The National Enquirer (via Showbiz Spy):

“Britney has gained close to 30 pounds, and she’s got a lot of cellulite on her legs and stomach,” an insider said.

“To disguise her belly onstage, she wears a one-piece leotard made out of a shaping material for a slimming effect. Skin-colored tights cover her legs during her act, and she also likes to use tanning beds and spray tans to hide her cellulite, but it looks ridiculous.

“Britney isn’t using her home gym, and she’s gorging on junk food.

“She loves McDonald’s and Taco Bell, and she’s eating tacos, corn bread and fried chicken. She also drinks Cokes and fatty frappuccinos from Starbucks.”

But Britney apparently has a plan to drop her extra weight.

“She’s going to have prepackaged meals delivered to her house about two weeks before her show starts again,” said the source. “However, that plan didn’t work during her hiatus last year, and it’s not likely to work this time around either.”

Damn, can we not let this girl live? Who DOESN’T like McDonald’s and fried chicken? She doesn’t look “fat” or anything near it – and even if she did, why does it matter to anyone else?

Back Up Dancer Claims Britney Broke Her Nose During “Work Bitch” Video Shoot


Britney Spears is being accused by back up dancer Dawn Noel of hitting her in the face, breaking her nose, and not caring about it. Noel says that Ms. Spears showed up to shoot the “Work Bitch” video in a completely “disheveled” state and accidentally hit her across the face while working, bitch, and barely apologized. TMZ has the juicy story:

Dawn says on August 19, she showed up at the rehearsal studio in Woodland Hills, CA.  She and the other dancers perfected their moves for several hours, and then Britney arrived.

Dawn says Brit showed up “in a disheveled and confused state,” and had considerable difficulty executing even basic moves.

Dawn claims she was standing off to Britney’s side, when the singer twirled while unbalanced, extending her hands and SMACKING Dawn in the face.

Dawn says the impact was so forceful, everyone in the room heard a cracking sound. Dawn says she was in excruciating pain, but all Britney said was, “I’m sorry,” and then continued the rehearsal.

Dawn claims after a half hour she couldn’t take the pain and went to a doctor, who told her she had a nasal bone fracture and needed surgery.

Dawn claims Britney’s people promised to pay the med bills, but after months of waiting she was told to pound sand.  So Dawn’s lawyer Sark Ohanian from Carpenter, Zuckerman & Rowley will file a lawsuit Monday against Britney.

TMZ called Britney’s people but so far there’s no comment on the story. Gotta say, I can totally picture this whole thing happening, right down to Britney’s dazed and confused, “Sorry” without realizing WTF happened.

The whole production sounds like such a mess, with Britney being photoshopped and now this. It’s not even that good a video or song, sorry to say.
