Britney Spears is planning on lip synching her way through her Las Vegas residency. How pissed would you be if you paid (what is sure to be a huge chunk of change) just to watch her lip sync? We all know she doesn’t sing live – but c’mon.
She’s planning on lip-synching, and according to NYDN, there’s a memo going around, a “cheat sheet” if you will….for curious fans.
“Britney does not sing. She is being paid a lot of money to lip-sync,” our source told us at the time. Team Britney went into meltdown after we broke that story and ordered up the “phone guide” sheet, to be used by staffers at Planet Hollywood if they’re quizzed about the show, according to our source.
Our source, who is connected to Planet Hollywood, provided the purported cheat sheet. It begins with responses to anyone who asks if Britney will be singing live.
“Yes! She will be singing live!” “Certainly she will be singing live!” “Yes, all vocals will be live!” “No lip syncing will happen at the show,” the sheet states.
The economical-with-the-truth document also include an answer to anyone who dares ask if the show will include live music. “Yes of course! There will be a special live band at ALL DATES,” it says. But a “special notes” section of the sheet seems to indicate otherwise.
“All vocals will be prerecorded,” it says. It admits that the “live band” “will be prerecorded also.”
The sheet instructs staffers to “try and stay in the margins of the provided answers and refrain from elaborating replies.”
Britney’s residency will begin on December 27, and she’ll perform 96 concerts over two years. She’s reportedly banking $15 million total.
So the question is – would you care if Britney were “phoning in” her performance?
