Pop star Britney Spears is busted — in more ways than one. Someone uploaded an audio to YouTube that showcases Britney’s raw, naked vocals without auto-tune to mask her deplorable lack of talent.
Britney’s son “Alien” is off last year’s flop Britney Jean album, according to Page Six.
Producer William Orbit defended the leaked version — he claimed it was recorded as Spears was “warming up” and that whoever posted it was being “unkind.”
Orbit’s impressive pop resumé includes Madonna’s “Ray of Light” album and All Saints’ “Pure Shores.”
“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,” Orbit wrote on Facebook after being made aware of the leaked version of “Alien.”
“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.
“A generous singer will put something down the mic to help the engineer get their systems warmed up and at the right level, maybe whilst having a cup of herb tea and checking through lyrics before the session really kicks off. It’s not expected to be a ‘take’.”
