Britney Addresses Using Playback: “I am busting my *** out there and singing at the same time.”June 27, 2017
It’s time we give Britney the credit she deserves.
It’s time we give Britney Spears the credit she deserves.
Britney’s Piece Of Me show is one of the most high-intensity pop acts in the game. It requires her to use playback, meaning the performances aren’t 100% relying on singing live, due to the intricate and explosive choreography throughout the 90-minute show.
The subject of lip syncing is somewhat taboo, but in a new interview with an Israeli television show ahead of her performance in Tel Aviv on July 3, the pop star sets the record straight.
How much of your show is with playback, backed up with playback, how much of it is live?, a reporter asked the singer.
“I’m glad you’re addressing this question,” Britney said, “because it’s really funny – a lot of people think that I don’t sing live… 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 *** out there and singing at the same time and nobody ever really gives me credit for it.”
Hear that, haters?
