Eve

Backtracks Poorly

from Britney Spears Slam

Eve
is trying to distance herself from the comments she made about Britney Spears on the new will.i.am song, but her argument just doesn't make any sense.

Eve was a guest on Bravo's "Watch What Happens Live" last week ... where she questioned whether Britney really provided the British-accented voice on "Scream & Shout." Britney's people called Eve's claim "absolute BS."

Today in DC, our photog asked Eve about her comments, to which she replied, "I didn't say anything about her singing. I said something about her British accent. We know it's Britney Spears singing the song. I never said anything."

Here's the thing though ... if you listen to the song -- which unfortunately we did -- 90% of Britney's appearance on the song is the British accent. She only "sings" for a few seconds at best. 

The whole song is just a giant, auto-tuned mess anyway ... so really, who cares?

Awww, do you guys remember a few years back when Chris Brown saved that familyand their dog from a burning house fire. What a great guy! Wait...Wait....I am getting my stories mixed up here. Chris Brown was that guy who beat up Rhianna a few years back. That's not a great guy at all. And Eve, Stop backtracking. Apologize or stand by your words.

Once you say something about someone like this, OWN IT or say Im sorry I was wrong. Don't try to weasel your way out of it. Just makes you look foolish.

That 'auto tuned mess' was a worldwide hit, so obviously, someone cares. TMZ music critic: don't quit yer day job.

The British voice sounds too low in register to be Britney's, if you watch her youtube doing a British accent in the gas station. But people insist it's her. whatever

She should remember the saying "don't write a check with your mouth that you can't cash with your ass" the next time she decides to make comments she's too cowardly to stand behind.

If the SONG doesn't carry 100 % of your voice in its pure form then techinically its not all of you and Eve is correct , But in the grand scheme of things ..WHO CARES!!, I however do blame WILL..I.AM for picking BRITNEY off the TRASH HEAP in hopes to make her relevant again.

TMZ seems to care anyone who is still debating Britneys singing talent must still be debating evolution
