Wait: Britney Spears Didn’t Sing on Her Last Album? Then Who Did?

If you’re a Britney Spears fan (and if you are, I can’t imagine why you’re on this site), you probably have a little aneurysm each time the name Myah Marie is mentioned. Myah is one of Britney’s back-up singers, hired (allegedly) because she sounds just like Brit.  EXACTLY like Brit.

In fact, allegations are swirling that she’s so Britney-esque that she ended up doing much of the vocals on the last album, Britney Jean.  I quote from LA-Deli:

Britney fans feel like Myah Marie is the unpoppable hemmaroid on their angry asses because it is alleged that Myah Marie contributed in near equal measure to Britney Jean as Britney herself. The irony of a popstar calling an album her most personal yet and not realizing that plenty of the leading vocals may not even hers is not lost on me.When Brit Brit wants to go for frapuccinos and buy a toy dog, producers – they say, will yes her out of the door and instead ask Myah Marie to imitate Brit Brit and lay down the track.The scandal deepened when Myah’s own father came forward and claimed Brit-wasn’t-really-Brit on half of ‘Femme Fatale’ .  Marie disputed this publicly. Somehow, despite what should have been a Milli Vanilli sized scandal – Britney has come out of the other side of the accusation without any statement from her label or her management. Marie went on to become a featured background vocalist onBritney Jean where she also co-wrote the track Body Ache.

And it gets better.  And there’s more evidence. Go here.
