Britney Spears’ Monologue

…..Britney Spears

Britney Spears: Thank you, thank you very much. You know, it is so cool to be hosting “Saturday Night Live” because I happen to be a very big fan of this show. And now that I’m here, I think this is a perfect place for me to clear up some crazy, crazy rumors that I keep hearing about myself. Like that I can’t perform without lip-synching, okay, which is not true. See, when I went on the Grammy awards, and sang “Baby One More Time”..

[ an obviously pre-recorded voice counters the movement of her lips ]

Voiceover: ..I mean, I had some backup singers doing the harmonies, but I sang all the lead vocals live. It wasn’t on tape. I mean, I’ve been performing in front of live audiences since I was six. I don’t need to fake it.

[ Britney’s live voice resumes the rest of the monologue ]

Britney Spears: Hmm, let me see.. oh yeah.. there’s one more. The one about my boobs being fake. That is just ridiculous! [ fake boobs in shirt start to move around ] I mean, come on! I’m 18, and I’m still growing, you know? [ looks down at her chest, notices her boobs are moving around – they quickly stop ] Anyway, we’ve got a great show for you, so stick around, we’ll be right back.

[ fake breasts continue to move, until monologue fades out ]
