    You can say you don't think it is a big deal without acting as if there were 5 vocalists in a studio harmonizing with Britney and Paula to create their choruses/ pre choruses/ high notes. I just find it very hypocritical and unfair that JLO is vilified universally for that while others do it just as much, while never even attempting to sing the songs live.
    JLO was even singing completely live back in 2001 and didn't miss a note.



    I just do not like the double standards.

      I just do not like the double standards.
      The problem people see with J.Lo (and probably the main difference with Britney) is that J.Lo has done that with nearly every song of her career (“If You Had My Love”, “Waiting For Tonight”, “Let’s Get Loud”, “Love Don’t Cost A Thing”, “Play”, “Ain’t It Funny”, “I’m Real”, “Jenny From The Block”, “Get Right”, “Ain’t Your Mama” , etc, etc) ... all of her hits basically, she even has #1 songs that she didn’t even sing a note like “Ain’t It Funny” or “I’m Real” who are sung from start to finish by Ashanti.

      Britney is no saint, and “Britney Jean” was a mess but she has dozens of singles and songs where she sang everything like: “Baby One More Time”, “Sometimes”, “You Drive Me Crazy”, “Oops I Did It Again”, “Lucky”, “Stronger”, “I’m A Slave 4 U”, “Overprotected”, “I’m Not A Girl Not Yet A Woman”, “Everytime”, “My Prerogative”, “Gimme More”, etc, etc ... Britney very rarely did what J.Lo did.

      As for demos being given .. that’s how the pop industry has been working in the 21st century. Toxic wasn’t even a Britney demo to begin with, it was a Kylie Minogue demo. Every popstar receives demos constantly and then they record the ones they pick.

        It''s not just a couple of songs, but literally her first three albums. This is NOT the case with Britney whatsoever.

          Exactly ... everyone knows Britney recorded until the last whisper and minimal background spoken word on “I’m A slave 4 U” for example.

          Most of her songs are that way, “Everytime” from start to finish Britney.

          J.Lo just abused the industry and none of the singles she did were even sung by her .. one could understand that happening with two songs or a few here and there but basically ALL of them?

              JLO is still singing lead on those songs.Those other singers just do the backgrounds, they are not singing the lead. And Britney has the same on her albums. I can easily pull the credits and post a list of background singers from her albums not to mention the one she barely sang on at all.

                  Has Mariah, Whitney, Xtina, Celine or Beyonce ever had a case of someone singing for them, or someone dominating their song (in terms of voice)?

                                Gurl at least my rise has been organique. I started off with a modest Gold placing and gradually picked up stream collecting sales and certificates as my singles smashed. I am waiting on a hot collab coming soon to push me to Diamond.

                                • My sister asked a class of 14 year olds about their favorite music. Some of the answers were: "No idea" and "I don't listen to music"...

                                  With all those different genres, with all music to listen to online, you would think everyone listens to music.

                                    It's the absolute same for me. As a teacher... I am in contact with all age groups. And a lot of 7 to 9 graders have 0 interest in music. Well, you'll always find the one odd outsider kid who listens to music... and a bunch of rap fans... however nobody we discuss on Ukmix is actually popular outside of stan culture.
