Britney Spears has something to say to those who have spent years calling the pop star out for allegedly lip-syncing her way through live performances.

When asked in an interview “How much of your show is live?”

“I’m glad you’re addressing this question because it’s really funny. A lot of people think that I don’t sing live,” she continued. “I usually, because I’m dancing so much, I do have a little bit of playback but there’s a mixture of my voice and the playback.”

She added, “It really pisses me off because I am busting my ass out there and singing at the same time and nobody ever really gives me credit for it, you know?”

Spears said in an interview with an Israeli television station prior to her July 3 concert in Tel Aviv.

At the beginning of June, accusations that the singer lip-syncs during live performances started up again when a video from a Tokyo concert surfaced.

The video shows the singer accidentally getting her microphone caught in her hair. While she tries to untangle the microphone, her vocals remained audible.

Spears admitted in her recent interview that she does use a playback track to keep things running smoothly during her dance routines on stage.

In a profile of Spears’ Piece of Me show on Medium’s Matter, Adam Lebera member of the Toxic singer’s management team said, “To put on the show that she puts on, it’s virtually impossible to sing the entire time and do what she does. She’s singing on every song, basically, when she has the ability to sing. There’s no way you can dance for 90 minutes straight and sing the entire time.”

Spears has upcoming concerts scheduled in Hong Kong and Singapore before she begins the final run of her Las Vegas residency on Aug. 9 at the Axis at Planet Hollywood.
