Britney Spears is a pianist

Why doesn't she employ this skill more in her songs??

She'd be unable to devote her full concetration to lip-syncing those songs in concert.

LOL! I can totally see her playing the keys and lip-syncing the vocals. I just think it's weird that nobody ever mentions her piano skills, but you read about Gaga playing piano in every one of her threads on here (to show that she's "different" from other pop stars).

Maybe she's not very good at it?

Because Gaga plays the piano every chance she gets. Brit ain't sat in front of a piano since the Onyx Hotel tour (not to mention she wasn't even playing it)

Maybe the record company/executives discouraged her from doing that. They probably had their minds made up that she be a certain type of music act and wouldn't let her deviate from it.

That was very basic what she was playing. Is there more videos of her playing?

I'm honestly not trying to be a hater. But all this stuff is very simple basic piano stuff... i mean Bieber play's piano to but he is basic as well.

There's a difference between playing which is cool they play and actually being a musician on it and being a real piano player.

I don't think Britney is Stevie Wonder or Diamanda lol
