Earlier this week, audio leaked of poor Britney Spears singing her hit song “Alien” without auto-tune. Everyone’s listened to it and they’re having a big old laugh at her expense. Well, we’re here to say “Stop it.” Who cares if she sounds just like we do when we’re singing in the shower? The only difference is that she’s making hits and millions while we’re, you know, doing the same… in our dreams that is. OK, so it’s kind of sad that she’s making coin from just auto-tuning her voice, but maybe she just had an off day. Plus, there are a ton of other “musicians” who don’t sound good live and use auto-tune to the max.
Let’s have a listen:
Ke$ha singing “Your Love Is My Drug” is equivalent to how 20-somethings would sound if they were blasting the song on a road trip across Canada (bad):
Rihanna singing “Hero” is not too bad — until her voice starts to crack. We’re willing to cut Ri-Ri some slack since she was only 15, but have her vocals improved all that much?
Hearing Selena Gomez sing “Naturally” is cringe-worthy (song starts at 33 secs). She seems like such a sweet person, so we feel a little bad for her.
Maybe Drake had the mic too close to his mouth while singing at Cornell University in 2010. That was just terrible.
We all know that Miley Cyrus can sing live. Unfortunately, the video below is not an example of that.
T-Pain basically built his career on auto-tune. Enough said.
Remember Rebecca Black? Yeah, her hot mess of an auto-tuned song “Friday” hit over 69 million views on YouTube. Oy vey.
OK, so this video of One Direction singing might not be real, but the same could be said about the Britney audio…Right? Right??
