Ke$ha Calls Out Britney Spears in the Battle of Whatever

Ke$ha Calls Out Britney Spears in the Battle of Whatever-photo

Is that a songbird showdown we smell a-brewing?

In an apparent effort to cure the headline deficiency she's suffered over the last couple of days, "Tik Tok" chanteuse Ke$ha is lashing out at Britney Spears for allegedly using prerecorded vocal tracks during her concerts. Says Ke$ha, who loaned her vocal pipes to Spears' "Lace and Leather,"

"I think that’s bullsh*t. I don’t think that’s fair at all for people who are going to see the show. I think if you are going to be a singer, you should sing. If you are going to be a dancer, you should dance...If you are going to do a combination of the two, you should make it very clear when you are singing and very clear when you are dancing."

And just to make things very clear, the singer—born Kesha Sebert—asserts that she would never, ever lip-synch, no way, no how, so don't even think about it:

“No offense to her specifically but people have asked me before to mime. I have been up at three in the morning for a television show with jet lag but I refuse to mime...It’s treating people as if they are too stupid to realize you are not actually singing. Sometimes it is hard to sing and dance at the same time but I would rather be off and be real and genuine about it to my fans. I don’t want to treat my fans like they are stupid."

Wait, so...Ke$ha thinks that lip-synching is insulting to fans, because they're smart enough to know the difference between real singing and fake singing, but she also thinks singers who lip-synch need to make it more explicit when they're doing so? Clearly, consistency isn't among her vocal talents.

Where do you stand on the lip-synching issue? Sound off in the comments section!

    okay it is apparent that Britney spears lip synchs in most of her performances, but its partly due that she is dancing . But that is not the point, i think Britney fans know that already!!! I mean KESH WELCOME TO HOLLYWOOD, By the way Kesha you are not that great of a singer yourself. Also Britney fans dnt freakout and say "Well Britney is a legend" NO SHE IS NOT. Britney is a teen queen it takes a whole lot to become a legend. If you are looking for REAL legend, research these people: Prince, Janis Joplin, Jimi Hendrix, Michael and Janet Jackson, Madonna and Marvin Gaye (these r just a few of the music titans/ legends that i have selected). These people are legends bcuz they had legendry work ethic and they were good ...i mean great at what they do. So yeah until Britney comes out with some real sh*t that everyone and i mean EVERYONE will groove to and not some twelve year old girl.Then i will except. And Kesha is not exempt from this either. The difference between Britney and Kesha is that Britney was a party gurl but she stopped due to her destructive ways but Kesha keeps goin as if she doesnt know that it wil probably backfire on her. Besides cleaned up her act and featured on Glee. I will give her credit for that, i am also happy that she is raiding her kids. But kesha ughhh... P.S, I am neither a fan of Britney or Kesha, in fact i dislike there musical styles .But Britney is looking alot better in this situation.

    But these words to you Ke$ha. YOU'RE NOT THAT GREAT OF A DANCER AND I'D WOULDN'T CALL AUTO-TUNE SINGING! So what you said was a little hypocritical, but true not counting it came out of your mouth.

  • simplydiffer

    I agree with what Ke$ha is saying, but not neccarcerily about Britney Spears. If somone "dances", they need to dance. Some say they do and all they do is twist and bounce their shoulder to the beat. If you "sing", sing. Let the words come through your mouth and not studio edit. If you "sing and dance", that's nearly impossible. Either do smooth dance moves (Ex: Ne-Yo, Michael Jackson) or don't sing while you are dancing. This goes for singers everywhere these days. We wanna see and hear the real you dancing ya ass off or singing your best or both, not some barely dancing "routines" or lip-sync shows or both.

    Kesha rocks

    Kesha is right..she does NOT auto tune her voice..it's only effects to the voice..the rest is her singing..Britney is fake as f*ck and people should learn that..i don't even know why shes still famous..KE$HA ROCKS!!!!!!

    Bullet to the head>Kesha

    Kesha is terrible. I heard her on the radio today and not only did it offend my ears but for some reason my eyes too. Yeah lip syncing is bad, fake whatever. But please Kesha just take the money you have now and invest it before you're on the street singing songs about mis-spelled words. No disrespect.

    Neither one of these girls can sing in the first place and they are both hot messes. I will say however that she has no place to say anything about anyone and their singin abilities because she is absolutly talentless. At least B is sowhat tolerable to watch (when shes not high on some drug). Kesha is riding out her 15 min of fame and then she will go down with all the other talentless, drug addicted losers. What happened to people singing that can actually sing??!!

    It's funny how Kesha talks about lip syncing when she gets her voice enhanced with modern technology.... so isn't she ripping off the fans too??? I'm certainly "smart enough" to know when someone's voice is enhanced. =P

    Britney Spears can't sing, true and that is why she lipsynches. Kesha can't sing, and has her vocalsl enhanced with auto tune.Britney Spears, however, has been entertaining people with her dancing and lipsynching for eleven years. From what I have heard of Kesha's singing, Britney wins hands down.

    I can't stand britney, she's worthless but kesha's just as useless and on top of it she's a britney wannabe. If she has to dethrone the queen of the special olympics to be a big deal I feel sorry for her.

  • SUCKA

    Who does she thnk she is bashing the one and only Britney? No matter if Britney lip-syncs or not people are going to see her everytime! Its called PERFORMING! people are gonna be board if she just stands there and sings, she is known for her awesome PERFORMACES, so get over your self Kesha because wannabe2 ia right, your 15 min of fame is almost over you one hit wonder! BYE-BYE

    [quote=Alex Timmons]She's not saying "if you're lip synching, admit it" - what she's saying is ACTUALLY sing, then ACTUALLY dance- if you're gonna do both, DON'T lip synch. Either sound like sh*t or don't sing during the parts that you're dancing. I didn't want to love Kesha, but I'm accidentally obse$$ed. Irony there is Ke$ha is auto tuned to sh*t. You stupid f*ck, as if be obsessed with a hypocrite.

    Ke$ha is right. If someone is going to lip synch, they need to let people know. Just as people who are Queens of Autotune needs to let people know that they need help with their pitch. When is she going to make that statement?

    What Ke$ha does can't really be called singing anyway, so her argument is null and void.

    I think Ke$ha is right. Why not just sing your own song?

    Ke$ha is a wannabe. Her 15 min of fame is almost over, and needs something to try to keep herself in the limelight. I have heard her sing live, and it was horrible. She should go to rehab so that she may leave the fantasy world she lives in. She will realize that she cannot sing, and stop taking herself serious. Please stop trying to sound like a black person, its insulting.
