basically billie was on this music program called msute which aired on the 25th of dec and old people were pissed at her singing style, saying shes not putting in enough effort. one person exclaimed, "sing from your stomach!!"

 

prolly doesnt translate that well to english but the way its phrased is sending me:britdrown_britney_tears_crying_drown_ink_black:

(btw twitter folks are on billies side 100%)

found the program on youtube

If they're talking about singing from the stomach, that doesn't mean it's "too low", though. That means they're talking about breath support/singing from your diaphragm. I don't doubt Billie can sing, it's just a stylistic choice for her to sing very breathy and deep, likely to pull off her signature sound as she actually is classified as having the highest female voice type. :mhm_britney_nodding_yes_mhmm:

That IS her and her singing style: whispery, laid-back, and like all youth nowadays... with the least effort possible. On the other hand, Japan is all about hard-work and giving their all, so I can imagine the cultural shock that that performance must have been for them.

However, I'm constantly surprised at the GP not being able to "read" an artist or know what they are all about the first few times that they see/hear them. That's like people still complaining about Britney not singing live or not playing an instrument, there's Adele and Taylor or whoever for that, STOP being so stubborn.
