LAS VEGAS - Kid Rock, who at times acts like he could be Gary Busey's long lost twin, offended a lot of singers at the Billboard Music Awards with his remark about lip syncing.
Rocky, as Joan "The Moan" Rivers calls him, sarcastically said that he wanted to send out a special thank you to all of the lip syncers who take the time to sing their songs to pre-recorded music.
The Detroit native added that it is really very hard for some singers to get their lip movements perfectly synchronized with the words of the songs.
He did reveal that for that reason, a high percentage of lip syncers, such as Britney Spears insist that the camera does not show their mouths when they are performing to pre-recorded music.
And speaking of Britney Spears, when she heard what Kid Rock had said she went ballistic and remarked, "Well Kiddy Boy Rock needs to mind his own damn business. Just who the hell does he think he is criticizing established performers who choose to mouth the words instead of actually sing them?"
Spears noted that there is no way that Kiddy Boy Rock could ever lip sync because he is always too drunk or too hyped up on something to remember what city he is in much less to try and correctly mouth the words to a song.
SIDENOTE: Mariah Carey added that Kid Rock has forgotten that he is a white boy and there is nothing sillier in the music world than a white boy trying to sing rap music.
