Ke$ha Slams Spears For Miming
KE$HA has slammed Britney Spears for miming on her Circus tour, insisTIng the pop star cheated her fans by not singing live.
Spears was blasted for lip-synching on her global trek last year (09), with some disgruntled audience members in Australia reportedly walking out of the shows.
And now the TiK ToK hitmaker has joined the list of critics taking aim at Spears for her lacklustre vocal efforts.
She tells Showbiz Spy, “I think that’s bulls**t. I don’t think that’s fair at all for people who are going to see the show. I think if you are going to be a singer, you should sing. If you are going to be a dancer, you should dance. If you are going to do a combination of the two, you should make it very clear when you are singing and very clear when you are dancing. I would never do that to my fans.
“No offence to her specifically but people have asked me before to mime. I have been up at three in the morning for a television show with jet lag but I refuse to mime.
“It’s treating people as if they are too stupid to realise you are not actually singing. Sometimes it is hard to sing and dance at the same time but I would rather be off (key) and be real and genuine about it to my fans. I don’t want to treat my fans like they are stupid.
“That is my take on my fans and life in general. My whole record is super-honest. I am really honest. When I am singing I may sound s**t sometimes but at least you’ll know I’m singing.”
