Lohan Branded a Lip-Syncer After TV Performance
Lindsay Lohan has been accused of lip-syncing during a supposedly live TV 
performance of two debut album tracks, just weeks after Ashlee Simpson's 
controversial Saturday Night Live embarrassment. The actress-turned-singer 
appeared on popular American show Good Morning America on Monday to preview 
her eagerly-anticipated LP Speak, but phone lines were subsequently jammed 
by viewers complaining she'd mimed the words and blatantly missed her cues. 
One said she did "a woeful job of lip-syncing her way through two 
mind-numbingly generic Britney Spears/Ashlee cast-offs", adding, "She looked 
like she hadn't even bothered to learn the songs properly." But 
representatives for Lohan insist she sung every word of the tunes "Rumors" 
and "Over" with the aid of a "backing track". Good Morning America 
spokeswoman Bridgette Maney says, "All musical artists that perform on Good 
Morning America are required to perform live. On occasion, artists will have 
a backing track to support their live vocals." In October Ashlee Simpson 
dashed from the Saturday Night Live stage when a guide track she was using 
started before she was expecting it to.
