Britney Spears Swears It's Her On Scream & Shout

You knew there was going to be some type of response when Eve went on Watch What Happens Live and said that she had heard that it was not actually Britney Spears singing on Scream & Shout but some other person instead. Eve didn't know fir sure, but it s what she heard. As was expected, yesterday, Britney's spokesperson says it is BS and that Britney sung on the track and some random guy from the studio asked the question whether Eve was even there. That kind of question scares me because it is not a denial. Also, lots of time people aren't places but they hear things. Kind of like how gossip works. will.i.am could not be reached to respond to what Eve said, but he has said he liked working with Britney on the song and that she did go in the recording studio. That of course does not mean they used her stuff.

Its Britney, bitch!

Cathy said...

I wonder what JLo would say about this...

dee123 said...

Shouldn't Eve get back to her shift at Subway or whatever she does these days?

Amber said...

Not that they couldn't find someone to mimic her, but the song sounds like Britney.

greenmountaingal said...

Thanks, Enty!

I actually like Eve. I think she's a good MC. I used to constantly listen to her Scorpion album when I was in grad school.

However, I've heard this song and it sounds exactly like Brit's normal speaking voice. It probably is her "singing" with heavy auto tune. I know some people think Britney might be MV, but I think her singing voice sounds a lot like her normal voice (same with JLo). I also can't imagine paying someone to sing that poorly. Just my opinion.

libby said...

Is Enty toying with an MV reveal? Fishing for clicks from us old-timers?

FINE.
Let's talk MV here today, if y'all want....

B. Profane said...

I do believe there is some heavy MV hinting in all the Britney items.

Then again, ur-Enty supposedly liked Britney, right?

VIPblonde said...

I'm not disagreeing, but the first thing I thought of when this came to light: Remeber when Britney went cray cray and was hanging out with Sam Lutfi? She recorded a whole album during that mess! Wouldn't Sam have said something by now if it wasn't her?

That being said, this is nothing new. C+C Music Factory got in trouble back in the day for using that skinny model to lip sync instead of correctly crediting the zaftig former Weather Girl who really sang all the female parts on their tracks. And now Britney is on so many meds she probably wouldn't even realize if the voice that ends up on the track isn't hers

libby said...

GMG, that's the problem I have with Brit or JLo being MV---If it's either of them, their trashy-sounding (sorry) real voices are layered over the other singer.


dee123 said...

I never thought MV was Britney. There's the footage of her singing as a child plus stuff like her on Ellen going door to door singing Christmas Carols. She has never had the best voice & they inflate the hell out of it, but it's her neither the less. I always thought it was JLO.

LottaColada said...

The only part that is iffy for me is the fake accent part. The rest sound like Brit.

I'm more interested in who that guy is Brit went to dinner with last night!

Amber said...

Really? I feel like there's more blatant hinting with regard to JLo. He makes comments about her "carefully crafted image" etc.

@VIP - I think Sam would've. He's out to destroy anyone he can for a buck it seems. Also remember during that time she kept speaking in a British accent to the paps.

phoenix said...

It sounds like her to me, and her vocal part is pretty minor in the song anyways so I don't get why it's a big deal.

PuggleWug said...

Britney sounded like Britney back on Mickey Mouse Club. I really don't think she is MV. I guess Eve is half correct, since the song is almost all auto tune, as well as Britney's attempt at an English accent. The song really sucks.

Rickatoo said...

I don't know about the song, but I don't think it's her in that photo

PuggleWug said...

@Lotta, Britney had that horrible reality show for a short time. She attempted that accent often. It's her. I was shocked that someone thought it was a good idea to add it to the song.

Its just U said...

So, Eve said she heard something from someone sometime that may or may not be true.
I think someone just wants to get their own name back out there.
I do think its Britney. She only has a couple of lines to sing. It would be more trouble than its worth to have a 'cover up'.
Sounds just like her too. Like when she sang Happy birthday to L.A. Reid on X Factor.

Renoblondee said...

They said on the radio this morning that Eve had said it was not her voice in the British part. Then Brit's camp replied that she did "sing". They didn't argue about the speaking part.

Alma said...

I think it sounds just like her. That sounds like her regular voice.

FSP said...

Where's Shelly?

Amber said...

@Rickatoo - it's 30% her, and the rest is makeup, lighting, and photoshop. She looks fantastic in the video, but again, makeup, lighting, and digital enhancement.

PuggleWug said...

She looks like Hellraiser in that picture.

libby said...

No one ever agrees with me, and I know Enty says MV is NOT foreign-born--But let me just say, again, that when Shania Twain first hit so HUGE (pre-internet, practically), I saw old beauty pageant VHS footage of her singing in a talent competition from just a few years before. I immediately perked up aghast and thought, 'THAT is NOT the same voice!' It was stunningly different to me.

I had already noticed that she was a BAD lip-syncher in her videos, so my spidey-sense was all over ST.
At the time, I assumed it must just be studio magic covering her real mediocre voice.
Because of that footage though, and my reaction way-back-when, I can't help but 'hope' I was right, and Enty if lying about MV being American.

noseygal48 said...

I still think Jlo is mv.....Britney is barely singing on the song anyways.

hunter said...

Hey libby if you think Shania Twain is MV I don't have a problem with that. I don't think MV is either JLo or Britney because of the things I've seen & heard from both (speaking voice/singing voice, etc).

I know everyone thinks it's JLo and it could be but I don't think so. Definitely not Brit Brit, she sounds like herself even if everything is heavily dubbed & auto-tuned & lip synched these days.

hunter said...

Ah Amber, sadly everything Britney is only 30% her these days, even her brain. :(

kriss_t said...

Shania use to make the bar rounds up here in Canada (around 92ish - IIRC) before she hit the big time...I wish I'd seen her now!

PuggleWug said...

Hunter, I agree. I have no idea who MV is, but I realllly do not think it is Britney. I also don't think it is J.Lo. It would kind of suck if it was Shania. I swear I saw her on a show (CBS Sunday Morning, I think), talking about some duet cd. It showed her singing live, trying to record something, and she sounded the same.

tealily said...

Haha, Rickatoo, I was thinking the same thing!

Anyway, I never thought MV was Brit Brit. I hope she isn't.

caralw said...

I think MV is a fake blind. Not that it hasn't happened. Just not at the scale Enty described. Plus, we now know he's a probate attorney. Can't imagine that he represented on that case.

Patty said...

There was a clue that the first and last name of MV had 13 letters. JLo and Brit fit. Shania does not. That is why we are all stuck on Brit and JLo.

NoraRose said...

What about Rihanna for MV?

noseygal48 said...

Mv was married and has kids so its rhi rhi

stigs84 said...

@renoblondee I can see that, I was listening to it yesterday & the singing part sounds like her, without a doubt, but the speaking part "ya gotta turn this shit up", I can see that being someone else's voice, it doesn't really sound like her.

And the "it's Britney, bitch" sounds like it was copy/pasted directly from that song she did a few years ago

TuesdayAdams said...

Britney is so overrated. I really don't understand her huge following.

Tuxedo Cat said...

There's so little singing in the Britney part, I wouldn't be surprised if it was or wasn't her. It sounds like Britney's voice to me. I didn't know Eve was like that.

B. Profane said...

If MV was a fake blind item, that would completely discredit CDAN in its entirety.

And Enty is definitely not a probate attorney.

Susan said...

I completely thought MV was Shania until the whole born in America clue.

Since then, I think the clues lead to J. Lo.

I kind of feel bad that this is how Eve is staying relevant. What happened to her? I remember the whole Sean Penn visiting her in jail, and then she dropped off the face of the planet. Anyone have deets?

LottaColada said...

@Puggle, I'm familiar with her pink wig/fake accent days but this one sounds different on the song to me. I don't think it's not her voice, I can just see how other people like Eve wouldn't believe it.

I can't believe people would take someone liked EVE's word for it anyway. I mean, where has she been? It's like if Tiffany came out of the woodwork to slam Beyonce's lip scandal!

caralw said...

@B Profane. Did you not read that NY Post article that investigated and found that he handled Wills and Probate.

Thing is, I think MV is fiction. I still spent a lot of time trying to figure it out and nothing fits perfectly.

I still enjoy the site. I just take it with a grain of salt. So should everyone, given the disclaimer.

LottaColada said...

@B.profane- I'm afraid we already discussed that topic earlier this week. You're too late.

pump said...

Ok for the regular posters here, what/where is this MV blind item you guys are all referring too?

LottaColada said...

@pump, check out the sidebar and look for the tag labeled MV. There are several posts under that tag so you'll have to go back to get to the original blind item.

caralw said...

@pump

There were several posts, but this is the original:

http://www.crazydaysandnights.net/2006/11/let-me-preface-this-post-by-saying.html

Land Manatee said...

I have said several times I think MV is Mary J. Blige and I get no feedback from the CDAN community on that one. Am I completely off base? Everything fits IMO.

caralw said...

I saw Mary J perform live on Idol once, dueting with Taylor Hicks. Very odd performance, but she was singing.

Amber said...

Oh brother. Not the NY Post article again.

ButterKwup said...

Land Manatee- that would certainly be a big deal and it's an intriguing idea. I think, whether we want to admit it or not, the most popular MV guesses are singers we don't like for whatever reason. No one will stand up for J-Lo, but Mary is a well-liked (over-rated) and distinguished (drama queen) artist.

My personal reason for not thinking it's likely is I've seen enough live performances with the runs and the bends and squats and crazy windmill arms to think she's not faking it.

Gayeld said...

@libby. Just because J-Lo is (probably) Enty's MV, doesn't mean Shania can't be one too!

B. Profane said...

"@B Profane. Did you not read that NY Post article that investigated and found that he handled Wills and Probate."

Yes, I read it. It's been discussed many times. That article is fake. I mean, it's the frickin' Post, fer chrissake. The consensus is that that article is complete bull.

caralw said...

Well, obviously, some want to believe what they want to believe. Consensus? I don't know. The whole Timmy/Shimmy thing drove a bunch of people away. I see absolutely no proof that anything Enty says is true. He even says it could be fiction. Even if he believes it to be true, it's gossip and subject to embellishment and the game of telephone.

I have been reading this site since the MV thing and commenting occasionally. I don't think MV is real. Still enjoy it. Not sure why people get so defensive over someone they don't know...

lunaire said...

I just read an interview with Bonnie McKee who said she wrote and sang on Britney's newest album.

B. Profane said...

"I see absolutely no proof that anything Enty says is true."

You have not been reading closely enough. Someone connected with CDAN managed to get Donal Logue to do a long segment on AM radio. Someone had very timely, very inside info about Estella Warren's meltdown two years ago.

Just for giggles, if there was an actual entertainment law attorney who had worked in the music business, been involved in a major beef with the Scientologists and worked in the reality show industry...would you believe that the MV blind item was legit? Or would you rather believe in massive coincidences and years of deliberate, detailed hoaxing.

Amber said...

@B. Profane - I can't keep all the details straight, but in your former scenario...Said entertainment lawyer that worked in the music business AND reality...Remember Diddy's Making The Band? Association with Diddy would put him near Jennifer Lopez who is Co$. We all know how Co$ will pump any amount of money into upholding an image.

caralw said...

You're right. I haven't been reading every comment thread because I don't have time.

Not saying he doesn't have any contacts (though they all seem to be Canadian), but he didn't come through on several things. I assume you're referring to the aborted radio show that he asked people to donate money towards?

I just don't buy the MV thing. If J-lo and Brit are the most popular guesses, it doesn't make sense. Neither are known for their singing and haven't changed a bit.

auntliddy said...

I wonder why eve cldnt keep her big mouth shut? Who really cares if it was her ir not? Leave brit be, she has enough problems!

Amber said...

@auntliddy - sometimes people say things like that because they think it'll make the relevant and interesting. It gets the attention focused on them because they're able to share something "juicy". Same goes for one-uppers!

yawnathon said...

Hey @Caralw - I don't think anyone, save Jax, knows who Enty is but the general consensus is by outing him will cause this site to cease, and nobody wants that.

IMO, and many others, Enty was sending that Post "reporter" on a wild goose chase. It was published under "opinion" on the Post either the day of or after April 1st. The "reporter" only cared to chase Enty down after the Himmmm media blowup. It makes perfect sense to me.

None of us take everything here as truth, but it's damn entertaining. So every time a poster brings up that inane NYPost "article", I am dumbfounded. Think about it: if Enty had granted an honest interview, he'd be signing this site's death warrant. Please let it go.

Lori said...

it is a shitty song, regardless of whether brit brit actually sang or not.

Karrots said...

I just want to say that mv/enty/cdan speculation threads are my favorite.

That is all.

CeeJay said...

Shanks isn't foreign born.......I thought she was born here and just grew up in canadaland. LOVE this guess! I effing hate her.

Shanks=shania autocorrect STAYS

Mooshki said...

Land Manatee, interesting guess! I don't think it's J.Lo or Britney, so it's nice to hear another possibility.

I can't believe people are still discussing whether Britney really sings on her recordings. It's obvious that all of her songs are heavily manipulated in the studio and/or have supporting tracks from other singers. Anyone who's seen Crossroads (Yes, I love bad movies, and I'm not ashamed to admit it!) knows that she has a pretty but very weak voice, and she needs a lot of "help." Some of the singers they get to help her out don't even sound anything like her.

Schmucky Putz said...

Who cares. Pop music is so auto-tuned and processed now you could argue that nobody really sings anymore.

Jazzy said...

When I saw Eve say that on WWHL I screamed "MV" at my tv. I wanted to believe it was JLO, but when Enty said it would rock the industry I thought it would have to be Brit Brit.

CeeJay said...

Shanks Twain's birth name is Eileen Edwards. 13 letters!!!!!!!!!!

caralw said...

With all due respect, I am not trying to "out" Enty's true identity. I don't really care who he is, tbh. I hardly think expressing some healthy skepticism in the comments section could do that. I didn't bring up MV. I just expressed that I don't believe that particular blind. YMMV.

Andrew said...

@Lunaire- Bonnie did background vocals. Thats what she meant. She did them on Katy's records as well.

@B.Profane- what do u mean it would discredit Enty? There's a friggin disclaimer at the bottom of this website that basically says half of what you read here is fiction and the product of Enty's imagination. Its insanely obvious that a lot of the blinds are made up.

Tuxedo Cat said...

Shania came from a disadvantaged background. I don't think she could have afforded good voice lessons until well after her dinner theatre and pageant days.

If you listen to her in interviews, you can sense the intelligence there. She looks quite a bit different from when she was young. She's definitely had surgery here and there (like most entertainers).

I think her voice has been strengthened by working with voice coaches, who help singers to make the most of their natural talents.

Lola said...

Jax once said that enty has never truly hidden who he is...and it's not surprising which celebrities pop up here over and over.



I fucking LOVE will.i.am. If you have never seen his appearance on Graham Norton with Miriam Margolyes, do yourself a favor and watch it.

nudibelle said...

i dont think its here 100% on the song at all just the hook
and the video all she does is that turn and stare look

shes not all there man

greenmountaingal said...

Amen, Tuesday, Amen.

Agent**It said...

Good Lord, a little detective work and you too can find out who Enty is and who he/she connects to and all the rest of it. It's the readers and the ever changing community who make Enty successful.

Land Manatee said...

Since we want to touch base on the MV topic again, here are my reasons on why I feel it is Mary J. Blige based on the majority of the clues Enty has given and other observations/facts:

1. Mary Jane Blige = 13 Letters
2. Hyphenated nickname = Queen of hip-hop soul (Sean Combs originally nicknamed Blige the "Queen of Ghetto Love". However, Andre Harrell, Combs's supervisor, found the name unsatisfactory and subsequently dubbed her the "Queen of Hip-Hop Soul")
3. As for the man who stopped paying 'S'. Her manager was Kendu Isaacs in 2000. If he recruited S, she (or very few) would not have known who he was. As opposed to Diddy (who might be another consideration for the man who stopped paying S) who most would have known who he was in that time.
4. She is American
5. She was married to Martin Kendu Isaacs from 2003-2011
6. She is as loyal as a real mother to her 3 step-children to this day!
7. She has sold millions of CD's and has had hundreds of concerts all over the world.
8. She has a song named "MJB da MVP". Could be Enty left off the 'P' on MVP so not to make the connection so obvious or it could just be a far reach on my part.
9. At some point in the questionable timeline it was said she had, "personal/professional issues (was thinking about doing an indepth interview)". Though this could apply to anyone, it could defiently apply to MJB.
10. One big clue was that her second album did better than her first. MJB's second album 'My Life' did far better than her debut album 'What's the 411?'.
11. MJB had the No More Drama tour in 2002. Significant if this timeline is correct: S was recruited in late 2000, recorded for several weeks, MONTHS later she heard song on the radio. About 9 months after she met the guy who approached and gave her money she was asked to record again for a tour. This means MV was touring sometime in late 2001 or early 2002.
12. MV has fooled everyone for over 10 years, winning awards and making millions. MJB has been around long enough to fit this clue.
13. I think her look, style and early choreography are part of the "illusion". No different than JLo or Britney.
14. Within 12 months before 11/10/11's MV clue, she had CD singles off her album My Life II...The Journey Continues.
15. If it were MJB, it would rock the industry to its core!
16. Has anyone ever wondered why Enty would say, "If anything should happen to him" about MV? As if he knows his life is threatened if it got out? MJB is all about the ghetto, gansta, hood, etc. She hangs out with the likes of P. Diddy, Lil Wayne, 50 Cent, The Game, (Notorious B.I.G.), (Tupac), etc. It's all about taking someone out if they are crossed. Would anyone want to take that risk?
Who in their right mind would really talk to the media about the truth behind this (if it were MJB) without feeling threatened for their life?

I don't know if it means anything, but I noticed my last MV post where I outlined the same info above does not show up in the CDAN search. I don't know if it was removed for some reason. Just found that interesting.

can she sing? This MEGA artist? Links that might say otherwise:

National Anthem At Kentucky Derby
Forum Questioning Singing
More Regarding Her Bad Singing
Interesting Read/Interview

What do you all think? Which clue debunks my guess? Would love to hear your take on this!

Lola said...

@Agent...exactly.

Mango said...

@ Libby - as much as I would like to back you up, I've seen a couple of old Shania Twain videos (one of her singing at some Canadian mountain resort) and it sounds like an earlier, not quite so polished version of her.

@ CeeJay - Shania spells Eileen with two L's. Eilleen.

Makes me seem like a Shania fan, but I'm not, honestly, although I did see a "Behind the Music" show or something like that with her once, and she seemed to have a human head.

I think MV is J-Lousy. I mean J-Lo.

dragon said...

That's Britney Bitch.

even the britsh part is her. She was speaking British the whole 2007 era with her pink wig. Nobody remembers that.

dragon said...

So this MV thing. What is it in short version The person doesnt sing in their own song?

I tried to read it and I didnt understood nothing lol

Krissie said...

@CeeJay-Shania was born in Ontario.

I might be missing something here but I don't understand why everyone is guessing either J.Lo or Britney for MV? They are both piss-poor singers. I would think that if the industry was going to concoct this whole lie, they would want someone with actual talent to stand in for MV. If you're gonna fake it, why not hire someone who's really good?

B. Profane said...

It's pretty clear that Enty doesn't care about having his identity revealed. CDAN has bashed COS so fiercely and doggedly, he had to have known that the clams would crack the anonymity of the blog (although I suspect he was already on their Known Enemies list).

Brandy said...

I like the MJB guess.

Also, it's Britney. Sounds just like her.

audrey said...

For newer readers who may have missed this. MV stands for Milli Vanilli...they were the 90s group who won numerous Grammies for vocal performances that it was later revealed they had not done.
I have long thought that the music industry nor the general public would be in shock to discover that JLO or Britney didn't sing on their records...or received a lot of help via atuo tune and electronic genius. Mary J Blige...now that would be huge.

Agent**It said...

LandManatee, great research !!

Anna Nonymous said...

Ha! It's not Britney, it sounds just like the voice double that she's always used, that's why it sounds like what we think is her. Eve said it with a smirk and eyebrow raise, like she was sharing gossip. Enty's absolutely right, she has inside knowledge, inside gossip, and was repeating the rumor. Britney's a fake, and I don't give a damn. Her double should be paid though. Come on Brits Dad! Cough it up!

Anna Nonymous said...

The NY Post article about Enty was filled with misinformation provided by Enty to throw everyone off the trail. Like he's going to say, here's my i.d, my work address, my home address, my social security number, to the whole fing world so that CDAN has to end, and again, his career is ended? Enty's smarter than that people, come on!

caralw said...

So Enty produces a fake bar card? That's a felony. If he's that cunning, why do people doubt he can make this shit up? It's brilliant.

caralw said...

Oh and CO$? They have bigger fish to fry. His comments are nothing compared to the articles from Tampa that he posted.

ANNIEOSCAR said...

I saw Mary j live a few yrs back back and I'm telling you now she sang her ass off. Amazing powerfull n beautiful voice gave me goosebumps . No way is she M.V . no way
