Eve Isn't the First Celeb to Insinuate That Britney Doesn't Sing Her Own Songs


(Getty Images)Rapper Eve is trying to pretend she wasn't baiting controversy when, earlier this week, she insinuated that Britney Spears did not Brit-speak on will.i.am's single "Scream & Shout" on Bravo's Watch What Happens Live.

"I heard it might not be Britney," Eve stated, sporting a Mona Lisa smile as she added, "That's what I heard, but you know, I don't know... It could be Britney. But I heard it wasn't."

After Britney's publicist slammed the speculation and called Eve jealous — with the catty aside, "I didn't even know she still sings" — Eve tried to back away from her earlier statements via Twitter:
But Eve is actually not the first celebrity to suggest that Britney does not sing Britney. Henry Rollins told Sun Media in 2008 that the voice we all know and love is only half Britney:
They have the black chick come in and sing, and Britney sings over it . . . [She] gets her phrasing basically from this older R&B woman. I found that out talking to an engineer . . . Britney apparently isn't actually the worst singer, she just has no feel. So they bring in this older black woman who sings the song, then Britney sings to it, and they kind of make a mix of the two voices, and that's what you hear on the records.
Very interesting.
