After her "Good Morning America" concert was aired to celebrate the U.S. release of her new album "Femme Fatale", Britney Spears got slammed by music critics. She was criticized for delivering lip-sync performances and not dancing well enough.

Associate Director of Charts, Billboard Keith Caulfield said, "You expect her to dance ferociously because one can say, well you're lip syncing and when you're lip syncing, we expect you to dance. But now if she's not dancing that vigorously and she's also lip syncing, you can't do both of the same time. Give us one of the others."

Britney performed three songs during the March 29 airing. She performed the first single "Hold It Against Me", the second one "Till the World Ends" and will.i.am-produced "Big Fat Bass". After the performances, she told audience that she's going to tour with Enrique Iglesias, only to get denied by the "Hero" hitmaker's camp later on.

In related news to Britney, Carson Daly blasted her management for requesting him to hand over his pre-taped interview with the singer to them to get edited. "F THAT," he wrote on Twitter. "Even when I interview Michael Jackson, it wasn't anything like this...it's really insane."

This might become another negative publicity for the pop singer despite her full-throttle promotion. But Carson pointed out that Britney "probably doesn't even know" about this issue. "Jst shocked her mgmt won't allow her to do a normal interview," he posted. "It has nothing to do w her. Just her ppl."

I was hoping for a spectacular performance. After all, she has a lot to prove being out of the limelight for so long. However, as most, I was utterly disapointed. Lip sync'ing is OK if you do it well. I can dance better than she did and I suuuuuck at dancing. If her butt hung any lower from her outfit, (that hid some other abundances of fat), she would have tripped over it at some point. I watched some of her older videos and she's lost her spark and sharpness. It's like she's doing this recording because her dog asked her to. And waht about Iglesias' people saying she is NOT on tour with them? Did they change their minds after seeing that crappy performance or was it just bull to start? It would seem really bizzare for Britney to lie about something like that. Now I hear he MIGHT tour with her. You know you're down when you do a concert tour sponsered by Big Lots!
