Britney Spears
Britney Spears launched her Las Vegas residency on Friday, and music critics are pretty certain she lip-synched during the performance.

The pop star's manager previously stated that Spears would be singing live during her concerts, saying: "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."

However, many don't believe she was singing live at the Planet Hollywood Resort and Casino in Sin City over the weekend.

Rolling Stone reporter Caryn Ganz wrote: "While the show's producers claim Spears is...

The 10 Most Disappointing Albums of 2013

December 26th, 2013 11:00am EST
Britney Jean
Throughout 2013, I’ve had the opportunity to review lots of albums.  Some were extremely special (Vampire Weekend, Modern Vampires of the City among ‘em), while others were D-I-S-A-P-P-O-I-N-T-I-N-G. Not to be a negative noodle or kill anyone’s happy vibe, but sometimes artists lay an egg… a really rotten one.   Not every album here is just awful, but contextually, they didn’t quite live up to the hype.  Some were rotten eggs though!

Review: Britney Spears, 'Britney Jean' Is A Mixed Blessing Of Sorts

December 2nd, 2013 10:30pm EST
Britney Jean
Let’s just cut right to the chase people! Britney Jean is different from previous Britney Spears albums, period.  While Britney Jean still possesses some of the suggestiveness that typically characterizes Britney Spears (“Work B**ch” being a prime candidate), it also seeks a more mature script to convey her deepest emotions.  Is Britney Jean always exciting because of this departure? That’s a definite no; it’s no Britney (2001) where we were all shocked and captivated when Ms. Spears presented “I’m A Slave 4 U”.  Put into perspective, however, Spears is no longer that spunky teen singing “O...
