    Post You know, Britney Spears could sing live if she really wanted to

    Unpopular opinion, but I do think she can sing. She seems to prefer doing that irritating 'baby' voice though.

    I think the voice is like any instrument, use it or lose it. I don't think she's used it in years. She probably figures why bother, it ain't her voice that her career is based on, it was her t&a (back in the day), and now it's her trainwrecky tabloid appeal.

    ^^^You just nailed it, Bee.

    She switched over to that cartoonish sex-kitten baby voice, and hasn't sounded like those clips in any of her popular songs.

    eta: that last clip is kind of cute, but I don't think they're singing live. They're dancing a lot, and you can't hear any fluctuation in their voices at all.

    eta: something else, that 3rd clip where she's playing the piano, she's talking and singing in a low, husky voice. Then at then end, the voice over is the baby voice. It's like someone was turning her into a Marilyn Monroe, & convinced her to completely change how she sounds. Like Michael Jackson. He didn't talk like that normally.

    Yeah, as a matter of fact, the strongest I've ever heard her voice be was in those clips where she was on Star Search and in county fairs. When she was about 5-8 years old.

    *my bad, she was 10 in the star search clips. But the point still stands.

    That's my impression, too.

    That always confused me too. She COULD sing as a youngster. But voices change, and she might have even worn out her vocal chords from over-singing too young (it happens.)

    I remember when she made her debut, she performed Baby One More Time on the Grammy's - she looked gorgeous and sang live and the vocals were abysmal. But no one cared. Her fans couldn't care less if she sings or not.

    She had a voice once but it's ruined now. She could sing live, but it would sound like shit.

    The Mickey Mouse Club clip is not live singing I know, I just wanted to post it because she looks so cute there. She already had a lot of charisma.

    I think she also needs better control of her voice too. When she used to sing Baby One More Time live early in her career, she used to sing too loudly over the music. Or maybe its the microphone.

    This is the 'baby voice' singing I'm talking about, awful.

    Not just t&a, but her dancing/performances. Now she doesn't even do that. I've seen clips from the Circus tour, all she does is walk around the stage and maybe move her arms a little bit. I don't think I've ever seen her do any of the dance routines, and if she does, its half assed.

    Ok. I have to say the MTV thing with Brit Brit and Christina singing with Madonna. Christina blew Brit away.

    I forgot how random Missy Elliott being there was, lol. My friend turned to me and said 'God I hope she doesn't kiss her too!'
