JBB’s Final Thoughts Episode 11: Vocal Talent, Studio Trickery & Leave Britney Alone 2014 While the World seems on the verge of self-destruction, the Media World was a tizzy about a leaked less-than-flattering studio track of a Britney Spears vocal that made many wonder if it was all studio trickery. As one with more than enough published evidence of my own wobbly “vocal talents” (See my previous blog post), I think the question misses the point. I mean, they call it the “music business” for a very real reason. Please See “We Have Concerns” podcast for July 16, 2014 Leave the Britney Machine Alone (scroll down, their direct link is broken).
