ritney Spears and the media have a dynamic relationship...to put it lightly.
Whether critics are chastising her for lip syncing, perpetually throwing her 2007 meltdown right back in her face, or chronicling her ever-evolving relationship status, when it comes to Brit, the media's mantra feels like it's all gimme gimme more, gimme more, gimme gimme more.
Recently, Britney pulled an incredible stunt that has jaws all over the Internet dropping.
Fans thankfully caught the moment on video. We are a slave for this performance.
Britney Spears certainly knows how to work a crowd.
Ever since she first lit up small screens across the country as a Mouseketeer, Britney’s been dazzling fans with her sick dance moves and expert vocal stylings.
Over the years, though, the media hasn’t always been kind to our famed Princess of Pop.
Britney's been pushed to her breaking point for a variety of different reasons. One constant, though, has been criticism over whether or not she lip syncs during her performances.
Britney dances a lot during her act, and it’s seriously hard to sing and dance at the same time.
So, sure. She uses a little bit of playback.
Back in June, Britney elaborated on exactly how she uses playback during her performances during this interview with Israeli TV...
“Usually 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,” she told the publication. “It really p***es me off because I am busting my a** out there and singing at the same time and nobody ever really gives me any credit for it, you know?”
See! It’s a mix guys.
Can she live?
In any case, Britney's been around the whole media frenzy block a few too many times.
So, once she felt this whole lip syncing controversy surfacing again, she decided to take bold action.
Britney showed the world once and for all that while she does indeed regularly blend her voice with a track on stage, this gal certainly does not need a track to shine her brightest.
During one of her Vegas performances, America's favorite pop star silenced her music, grabbed a hand-held mic, and did what she's always done best — she sang....live.
This performance is everything we were hoping it would be and then some.
It’s fierce. It’s ballsy. It’s Britney, b*tch…
