Lady GaGa has vowed never to lip synch at a concert, insisting singers who perform along to recorded tracks aren't real artists.
The Just Dance hitmaker is adamant she would never mime the words to her songs, no matter how physically demanding her dance routines are.
And she believes fans deserve to hear her voice in live shows since they have already listened to her vocals on CD.
She says, "I would never even think about it (lip synching). The whole point to me is, if youre gonna be number one, you better really be f***ing number one. If youre gonna be on top, you better be able to do all those things, because its a real privilege to be able to make music everyday, and I get away with a lot.
"Andy Warhol says art is what you can get away with, and I get away with a lot with my music and my clothes, and I work really hard so I could truly be a real artist for all my fans.Thats really f***ed up when you lip-synch.
