The things they say:

“I never thought this debate would be quite so heated. Autotune has always been a hot-button topic… Regardless of the fun and games that we have with studio production, the main thing to keep in mind with Ms. Spears is that tens of millions (hundreds of millions?) of people enjoy the music. That’s pretty much the be-all and end-all of it. And charisma is charisma. No software ever invented can manufacture that.” Producer William Orbit vouches for Britney Spears’ musical talents once again after she came under attack following the leak of a tuneless recording of her 2013 track Alien. He initially spoke out in support of the pop star last week (ends11Jul14), when the audio first hit headlines.
