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.
