Source says Britney Spears will lip-sync at Vegas shows

Planning to see Britney Spears during her two-year Las Vegas residency? Well, according to a source, you won't be hearing her sing live.

"Britney does not sing. She is being paid a lot of money to lip-sync," a source tells the New York Daily News. "She hasn't sung live for a couple of years." Indeed, Spears has been accused of faking it in the past; in 2009, outraged fans walked out of concerts in Australia over her lip-syncing.

"Her fans are none the wiser," the source continues, "but it is disingenuous of her to take their cash [tickets cost between $59 and $179] and not deliver a proper performance." A rep for Spears insists, "Britney will be singing. As stated before, she is in vocal training -- has been for months, and she is and has been working with a choreographer for her Vegas 'Britney: Piece of Me' show. Her new album, which is out on Dec. 3, will also represent this. Any source to the contrary holds zero truth."

On Friday, Spears talked about the Vegas gigs and her new album, out in December, with Ryan Seacrest. "It's the most personal album I've ever done," she says. "After having a huge breakup this year [with ex-fiance Jason Trawick], I had a lot to say in the studio, so it was nice to have a therapy like that and to be able to share that with my fans."
