Britney Spears

Former toxic singer Britney Spears' lip-synced shows are causing huge controversy in Australia. One of the country's leading politicians is urging ticket agencies to warn fans when artists plan to fake it. Spears is currently performing there as part of her "Circus" world tour, but Aussie. critics are slamming the singer for failing to perform live during the shows. Now the New South Wales Minister for Fair Trading, Virginia Judge, has waded into the debate, and is insisting ticket agencies should publish a disclaimer to stop gig-goers feeling cheated when an artist fails to provide any live vocals. Judge has branded Spears' shows a "Mickey Mouse performance," adding: "Let's be clear - live means live. If you are spending up to $200, I think you deserve better than a film clip. The NSW Government would be happy to look at options, such as a disclaimer on a ticket which would warn consumers a performance is pre-recorded."
