Britney Spears is displeased that critics have been harping on her vocal talent.
In a new interview, she addressess the ongoing accusations that she never sings live:
“I’m glad you’re addressing this question, because it’s really funny. A lot of people think that I don’t do live.
I 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.
It really pisses me off because I am busting my ass out there and singing at the same time and nobody ever really gives me credit for it.”
Of course, her comment left the door wide open for some good old-fashioned ribbing on Twitter:
Britney's Concert Coordinator : We're going to turn the playback off, so you can sing live, okay Brit?
