Britney's Aussie Lip-Syncing Trouble

Britney may soon be facing some trouble Down Under: The Australian government is investigating whether Spears will lip-sync during an upcoming concert there. If she won’t give an entirely live performance, Virginia Judge, the minister for Fair Trading for New South Wales, wants to warn fans before they buy pricey tickets to any of Brit’s concerts. “It is Britney’s ‘prerogative’ to lip-sync, and it is my job to make sure consumers know what they are paying for up front,” Judge said in a statement obtained by People magazine. Still, it appears her fans might not care whether or not portions of the show are pre-recorded: Spears has sold out a number of shows already, and some tickets are priced at over $1,300, the magazine reports. “Personally I would rather see a live set from a local artist," Judge added, "but I am sure Britney's fans will be treated to a spectacular show.”
