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?

Well if no one cares TMZ why is it a story here? Oh right, to stir up controversy. FYI Britney Spears can't sing, dance or speak without a teleprompter. She's only still 'relevant' because America LOVES train wrecks

Brit's people probably bullied Eve but good, and threatened to blackball her from the music scene. But I agree with TMZ, there's so much auto-tune, no one on the track is really "singing."

A tune like “Scream & Shout” is not written by a songwriter with a musical instrument it is programmed by someone with a lot of computer skills. It is irrelevant how much of the female voice heard is Britney. Credit ( or blame) should be given to the person who spent many hours manipulating a collection of digitized audio samples.
