A vocal clip of Britney Spears has been leaked where she sings her latest song Alien without any editing. Her performance is far from her best as she sound ragged and about as far from a pop star as you could imagine. The clip has caused quite a stir online with many fans expressing shock and horror at just how how out of key she sounds.
Alien features on her latest album Britney Jean and the clip only showcases Spears' vocals without any of the effects that the magical Autotune tool provides. The singer misses a few high notes completely and is well out of key in many parts of the song.
Producer of the song William Orbit has defended the singer and suggested that Spears was engaging in some warm up exercises to get her vocal chords ready for action and it was a clip that was not meant to be shared with the world.
In a statement Orbit said "Warming up is essential if you’re a pro, as it is with a runner doing stretches, and it takes a while to do properly. I’ve heard all manner of sounds emitted during warmups. The point is that it is not supposed to be shared with millions of listeners."
Britney is no stranger to headlines, both good and bad so this little storm in a teacup is bound to blow over pretty soon. The American singer is currently nearing the end of a 2 year residency in Las Vegas at the Planet Hollywood Resort and Casino.
