Okay... YouTube user B W says they have been talking to Myah Marie on SoundBetter (where she can be hired) and she revealed to them exactly what happened. They told me (public posts): "@RockVeteran I was talking to her on soundbetter about it" Link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mXbOgCia5d4&lc=UgxBaPBV0mn0GgUo5dd4AaABAg.90WKE05_lFw9GL8rE64kf_ "@RockVeteran Basically this: That she went in to do backgrounds for Britney Spears (she had done so in the past). She was then asked to do some extra doubles (which is basically overdubbing the lead vocals for extra punch and emphasis) since Britney was unavailable. During mixing Serban confused some of them for Britney making them louder than Brit's leads in places. He thought they were all Britney. That's basically it. She could have been making it up but I doubt that ahahaha."

It came up in conversation and she said she did indeed dub most of Brit's vocals (and some other songs too), just because Britney couldn't get to the studio to do doubles and harmonies herself. I believe then in the mixing process, the mixer got confused and put the doubles up higher in the mix." Link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mXbOgCia5d4&lc=Ugzx0jaUb1KXpn0gOG14AaABAg.90gI3Y6APiU9ACVCYoD2c1 Mmm... So we now have not one but two YouTube users reporting the same explanation from Myah Marie. (Maybe Myah Marie should make it an official public statement, then.) Serban Ghenea worked as a mixing engineer on Britney Jean. According to the booklet, Serban only mixed the following tracks: Alien, Passenger, Brightest Morning Star, Hold on Tight and Perfume (The Dreaming Mix). Serban's official website lists the same tracks except for the alternate mix of Perfume. If Myah Marie actually did reveal this, it then explains why does she sound louder in certain parts of some of those tracks, but it doesn't explain the allegations pertaining to Work *****, Body Ache, Til It's Gone and Chillin' With You. (As for Tik Tik Boom, according to this video, it's all Brit except for a few words and obviously the ad-libs at the end, but singing ad-libs does not quite qualify as dubbing.) What's strange, though, is that prior to working on Britney Jean, Serban Ghenea had worked on the Britney, In the Zone, Greatest Hits: My Prerogative, Circus and Femme Fatale albums, related singles, maxi-singles as well as 3 and Ooh La La. Having worked on so much of Brit's material, heard all those vocals of her a cappella, etc., he should have been able to tell her voice from Myah's... And why didn't they properly label the stems? Serban then worked on Pretty Girls and Glory.
I remember reading an article where people where putting to shame that Alanis did dance pop music in her early days, to where she replied. "I've got nothing to hide or be ashamed of, it's not like I posed for Playboy". Now while in today's standards it's acceptable, But in the conservative times in the 80s and 90s scandals i.e. nude photos that acts did do to make money Like Madonna, Vanessa Williams and Geri Halliwell of the Spice girls did this just so they can eat or pay rent as a struggling act or artists, thinking this won't get out. Unfortunately it did and it caused a huge uproar. First Scandal Gay icon Vanessa Williams. We love her as Wilhelmina on ugly Betty and Desperate housewives.. But in 1983, A then unknown Vanessa Williams made history as the first African American to win Miss America, which was historic and groundbreaking at the time. Unfortunately Penthouse purchased ***** of her and made an issue, with her on the cover, The controversy was quick and swift and unfortunately Miss America stripped her of her title and it went to a White woman that had zero scandals, almost 30 years later since it happened. The organization apologized to Vanessa Williams, but they didn't give her titke back. 1985. Madonna The hottest popstar deemed sexpot, Also hit a huge nude photo scandal when Penthouse and Playboy did ***** with Madonna on the cover. Playboy subject title Madonna: Unlike a Virgin. Madonna handled it differently when she appeared on the New york post with the headline. Madonna on Nude pix: So what!!!. Madonna comnented this in 2009 on rolling stone: " That was the first Time I was aware of saying "Fu#K you" with my attitude. You're trying to put me down because of this? I'm not going to let public opinion dictate my own feelings about myself. I'm not going to apologize for anything I've done". Then the third and final biggest scandal is Spice Girl Geri "Ginger Spice " Halliwell. Geri took nude photos before she became famous in 1992, but in 1997 Playboy put her on the cover using her infamous Brit awards performance with the subject title Geri: Spice it up, sadly as An editor of Rolling Stone magazine described to the media after this came out. "GERI was the first of the Spice girls to be portrayed as Smutty Spice" But it was worse as her girl group looked down on her cos this scandal took a huge hit on their pre teen and mom approved image, Mel B, and Victoria basically bullied her to a constant and it took a toll on Geri, Melanie C said that Geri would cry everytime this was brought up in group meetings, she wanted the joke where Victoria said in the infamous Malcolm scene that she could take her top off removed but she lost that battle. While the girls moved on from this, This was also a huge factor in Geri leaving cos they held her to a different standard then the other four, especially when Simon Fuller was fired and Mel B took the reins of calling the shots.
