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?

I think that Eve was right. When i first heard the song. I didn't think Brit did the British part until I tried to find out who did that part and only Brit kept popping up.

For the weirdos who keep asking who is Eve. You really must not know anything about music if you don't know who Eve is. To refresh people's memories. Eve is a Grammy award winning rapper, the first lady of Ruff Ryders (DMX, Swittz Beats) she was also featured on Gwen Stefanie's Rich Girl and another song called let me blow your mind (Eve, Gwen Stefanie, Dr. Dre). So stop asking who is Eve. Smh.

Lmao did anyone even watch the show on bravo on what she said ? She simply said what she heard and what other people are saying. And for those of you who don't know who eve is, please have several seats right now! The comments kill me on this website, it's so sad that it's 2013 and somehow race has to be mentioned when that shouldn't matter at all . You racist ****s need to get a life and stop making every situation somehow relatable to race!

erm it's just some vocal stylings, doesn't even sound 'British' to me. Eve should make some of her own songs instead of talking trash.

Isn't she that flat nosed hair lip female "rapper" from that failed Ruff Ryder group? Where is DMX? Out of jail yet? Anyways what did she sing to win a Grammy for? Collaborating with actual talented singers? She is a vulture. Takes any morsel celebs with toss at her. Not a fan of Britney's but girl can run stacks of hundreds around Eve and smack her on the forehead with a Forbes magazine and laugh in her face. Nice try Eve. You were relevant 20 years ago. Fade away with some dignity.

I'm still waiting for the day when it is revealed that Britney Spears actually pulled a "Milli Vanilli" and we get to know who REALLY sings on her songs... Britney NEVER sings live... probably because she is only an act and not a singer. And auto-tune or not... the songs sound great and I enjoy hearing them so who cares ?
