Britney Isn't Too Concerned About That Auto-Tune Controversy

Jul 12 2014 - 5:25pm

Britney Spears [1] has emerged, y'all! The singer flashed her megawatt smile while running errands in LA's Westlake neighborhood on Saturday. Donning a white tank top with "Aloha State" written on the front, black shorts, and flip-flops, Britney grabbed coffee at a Starbucks inside a strip mall near her home in Calabasas, CA.

The singer's casual appearance comes mere days after a raw recording of her vocals [2] went viral. As criticism of her voice without Auto-Tune mounted, producer William Orbit clarified that Britney was just warming up her voice in the leaked clip. On Thursday, William wrote a second Facebook note [3] about the controversy, defending Britney and "Alien," the song in question. "Regardless of the fun and games that we have with studio production, the main thing to keep in mind with Ms. Spears is that tens of millions (hundreds of millions?) of people enjoy the music," he wrote. "And charisma is charisma. No software ever invented can manufacture that."

Although Britney has kept a low profile during her break from her "Piece of Me" concert residency in Las Vegas [4], she's been candid about her family life on Instagram. On Friday, she shared a smiley snap of her sons, and late last month, she told us she was "bored" in a video she took. Keep scrolling to see the pop star's latest pictures, and if you're suffering from Britney withdrawal, relive your decades of die-hard Britney fandom [5] with her best GIFs!
