MÖTLEY CRÜE Singer Comments On ASHLEE SIMPSON Lip-Syncing Controversy

In a recent interview with Detroit's WRIF 101.1 FM, MÖTLEY CRÜE singer Vince Neil was asked to comment on the Ashlee Simpson lip-syncing controversy. "I'm glad [she was exposed on national TV], too, because there's a lot of people… the majority of the new people that are out there now, these teenagers basically do movies and then figure they can just go out and put out a record," Neil said.

"The way the technology is today, you can just go in there and sing, and a guy can actually adjust every syllable and every word that you just sang and make it sound amazing. And then these people go on stage, and they have no talent, so they lip-sync. And it's cheating everybody.

"I'm glad she got caught. And I've seen her sing since then, and she sucks.

"If you've got true talent, you don't need to do that.

"There's some other people that I've talked to some producers that… some chicks that have done a couple of albums and sold millions, and they spent weeks and months editing their vocals to make them sound good, and they only spent one day in the studio and did the record — one day. It's pretty sad.

"This has gotta stop. It's not about talent anymore, it's about money.

"If you've got the cash, you could go make a good record."
