Britney Lip Syncing
This is taken from a radio station
"Apparently, fans from her last concert were mad because they argued that Britney Spears lip-synched through most of her show. I'm not surprised because if I sang as bad as her, I'd lip-synch my way to $15 million dollars, too. Anyway, Channel 7 - Action News did a report on it and this is their quote, 'Teen singing sensation Britney Spears is getting some heat tonight for allegedly not giving her fans what they paid for. Birmingham news (Alabama) is reporting that the 18 year old pop star was lip-synching through most of her concert thursday night. Many complained that Spears' lips did not always fit the vocals and lyrics at the sold out concert. Her publicist would not comment nor would the concert's promoters.'"

Britney Changing Album Name and New Single
It looks like "Sunflower" and "Britney..." will not be the title of Britney's new album. This one, however, is even worse.. Teen pop queen Britney Spears is courting an older generation of music fans with her upcoming album, Oops! ... I Did It Again.
On the LP, due May 16, Spears — who recently turned 18 — will cover the classic "(I Can't Get No) Satisfaction" by the Rolling Stones, rockers old enough to be her grandfathers.. "[It] was my idea [to record the song]," Spears said on Monday. "I was just like, 'I like this song,' and I think it will be a really cool combination working with [hip-hop producer] Rodney [Jerkins] and doing a really funky song like that. We're going in to work on it after the Grammys, so I don't have a clue how it's going to sound."
