Hilary Duff who is accused of lip-synching while performing in Mexico said that her mic was set in mute accidentally.
Hilary Duff has slammed back the false reports that said she did a lip-synch while serving a concert in Mexico last weekend. A rep admitted it was a technical fault but denied that Duff was merely mouthing her lyrics.
"She was not lip-synching," the rep explained. "It was faulty equipment. There was no sound coming out, but she was singing." The rep further explained that Duff was using the local sound equipment on that day rather than relying on her own gear.
The microphone was explained as "accidentally set on mute" when Duff was seen leaning to her microphone but generating no sound. The incident that only occured in the first few minutes had triggered speculations that she was lip-synching.
The concert is part of Duff's 'Dignity Live' tour to promote her latest album 'Dignity' (2007) which will be re-released this year. However, rumor has it that she will release a new album instead, with 'Reach Out (And Touch Me)' as the first single.
