Britney Spears booed for lip-synching at Florida concert
10:00AM Tuesday May 22, 2007
Britney Spears was booed by fans after being caught out lip-synching during a 'live' performance.
The troubled singer was performing at the House of Blues in Florida on Saturday night when technical glitches saw her backing CD skip repeatedly, exposing her miming.
A source is quoted by gossip website TMZ.com: "It was an ugly scene. The crowd started jeering and heckling her. Britney looked absolutely devastated."
"When the CD started skipping during the song Do Somethin', Britney hid her face and turned her back. Then, when it resolved itself, she turned around with this look on her face like she was going to puke."
Hundreds of fans had queued for hours and some had spent hundreds on tickets to see the show.
The appearance was part of a series of 15-minute concerts which have seen Britney perform live for the first time in three years under the pseudonym M+Ms.
After the initial hitch, Britney suffered further technical problems, which left her "rolling around on the floor with her headset broken".
Britney is not the first star to suffer the embarrassment of being caught miming.
Ashlee Simpson was left stunned during a performance on US comedy show Saturday Night Live in 2004 when the wrong backing track was accidentally played, leaving her mouthing the wrong words.
Madonna was also famously blasted by Sir Elton John for lip-synching at her stage shows.
Hope she’s invested her earlier money wisely.
“It’s over Johnny.”
I am adding her to my prayer list which is mostly family and FRiends because she clearly is disturbed and needs our prayers immediately or she is going to end up in a real bad way. I normally don’t get into praying for celebrities, but I am going to make an exception for her because it is clear she is lost and needs major help.
What the hell is she wearing, a polar bear?
A fool and his money.....

Ashlee Simpson...Milli Vanilli
>>Simpson received widespread criticism when she used a pre-recorded vocal track for a performance on Saturday Night Live in October 2004.
>>In July 1989, during a live performance recorded by MTV at the Lake Compounce theme park in Connecticut, the recording of the song “Girl You Know It’s True” jammed and began to skip, repeating the partial line “Girl, you know it’s-” over and over. According to the premiere episode of VH1’s Behind the Music which profiled Milli Vanilli, fans attending the concert didn’t seem to care and the concert continued as if nothing had happened, but critics did notice and savaged Rob and Fab in their concert reviews.
I would boo her for her ongoing choice of clothing as well. And who are these people who actually pay to see this sideshow?
I have those white boots! Mine come up a tad closer to my knee, though.
They spent hundreds, waited in line and she was late because she was shopping.
First time I ever saw lip-synching was on American Bandstand, Van Morrison doing Brown Eyed Girl.
There is something about calf boots and short skirts that really gets my attention!!! :)
Her mother pushed her into that life from a young age. I actually feel sorry for her. I don’t like her garbage, but she never had a real childhood. She has no talent in my opinion.
Hair weave. The young lady beside her has already unbuttoned her pants.
Britney Spears downward spiral began when she got the “kiss of death” from the old whore Madonna. The rest is history.
RE: Milli Vanili
I think it looks acceptable today to lip-synch to your own music and your own voice. That is what Britney and Ashley do.
Milli Vanili was different... they lip-synch to someone else’s voice. I don’t think that is acceptable not even with today’s low musical appreciation standards.
Not saying that won’t happen in the future though.
I would actually consider dating her if I were certain she didn’t have any STDs.
Women like that need real men.
Seeing as it is Floriduh, I'd wager Gore voters.
