Britney Spears' Isolated Vocal Track Hurts To Hear

Certain things are better left unheard. So it goes with Britney Spears' actual singing voice, which has been making its way around the internet as of late in the form of what's allegedly an isolated vocal track from a 2001 Las Vegas concert. It's almost unfair to be mean about this, because she's not even really supposed to be singing so much as looking like she is, but it's also hard not to compare the thing below to outstanding isolated vocals from The Beatles, David Bowie and Freddie Mercury, Whitney Houston and even Kurt Cobain.

There's always the possibility that this is a fan (or hater)-made fake, but let's just all agree to never ask Britney not to lip sync again, OK?
