Michael Buble: Criticism of Britney's Lip-Synching Is 'Nasty'

Britney Spears might have made headlines with her recent lip-synching while on tour in Australia – but she has an unlikely ally coming to her defense – Canadian crooner Michael Buble.

“You’d think she killed someone,” Michael recently told Melbourne’s Herald Sun newspaper, referring to the controversy surrounding Brit’s use of pre-recorded vocals. “Okay, she lip-synchs her show, people know that, they make the decision if they want to go and see her do that.”

The crooner called out how the media has treated Britney during her “Circus” tour down under, saying, “Does she deserve the way she’s been completely bashed by the media here? No.”

Michael went to call the criticism of Britney “nasty,” but is also keeping his sense of humor about the situation.

“Mind you, I lip-synch all my concerts,” he said joking. “I’m the Milli Vanilli of jazz.”
