Britney Spears is a little offended over Australian officials accusing her of lip synching before she even played a single show down under!
Brit arrived to the country on Friday to play 14 shows in Australia, and the Minister for Fair Trading for New South Wales immediately addressed her lip-synching. They even threatened to put disclaimers on tickets to let fans know what they were in for.
And the Australian media hasn’t been very gracious to Britney either. It was reported over the weekend that fans walked out of her first show, calling it "boring, stiff, mimed and lacking interaction with the audience.”
But the promoter of Spears' Australian "Circus" tour, her manager, and fans have come to her defense, saying it has left her traumatized.
"Britney is aware of all this and she's extremely upset by it," Paul Dainty, Spears' tour promoter, told an Australian newspaper on Monday.
"She's a human being. I'm embarrassed, with such a big international entourage here with Britney, to be part of the Australian media when I see that kind of totally inaccurate reporting."
Dainty also said that it’s a well-known fact that part of Spears’ concert was lip-synched. "It's been all over the Internet for nine months," Dainty said. "This show is about an incredible spectacle, which it is."
Poor Brit! Do you think Australian media is being too hard on her?
