Even though this **** leaked literally five years ago, it’s just now making the rounds in the blogosphere thanks to Radar Online’s on-going smear campaign against Britney. It’s an alleged clip of Britney’s singing during her 2001 “Dream Within A Dream” concert in Vegas.
They’re doing their best to deter the general public to avoid buying tickets to Britney’s Vegas show, claiming she’ll be lip-synching the whole thing. Even though BreatheHeavy debunked this rumor a few weeks ago, it’s once again gaining momentum – the phone guide supposedly passed out to Planet Hollywood employees.
It directs them to answer questions people may have in regards to her singing live, which includes responses like: “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.”
“Britney does not sing. She is being paid a lot of money to lip-sync,” a source told the NY Daily News. “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,” continues their source.
“They aren’t going to be happy about you having this document,” said the source. “They don’t want fans knowing Britney is going to be calling this tour in.”
There’s nothing to be unhappy about.
BreatheHeavy.com also received the “cheat sheet,” but it’s completely FAKE and was NOT distributed to anyone at Planet Hollywood, a rep at Caesars Entertainment confirms to BH.
“While a reference guide was distributed to assist our sales agents with the vast number of questions they are expected to answer in relation to the show, any reports suggesting that agents were coached on how to address queries surrounding the show’s production and creative concept are completely inaccurate. Insinuations that an ‘inside source’ is providing such information are farfetched since no such documents exist.”
Larry Rudolph told Billboard last month, “She’s going to be singing live. She does choreography and vocal coaching every day. The vocal coaching is really just to strengthen her voice and get her to a point where she can go out there every night and do a full show.”
“It’s hard for the public to fully understand what goes on when you get on stage and you’re dancing full out during a song. No matter what anyone says, there’s not a single artist who goes out there and does full choreography and is singing without a vocal track underneath them at the same time. It’s physically impossible. We’re just trying to build up her stamina and get her to a point where she can do as much as humanly possible. The idea is to try to get her pretty close to 100%. There might be some numbers where she’s full out dancing with a (vocal) track underneath her, but there won’t be any lip-syncing across the board on anything.”
Looking forward to squashing their next story.
