NEW YORK (AP) — Read Britney Spears' lips about the rumors she lip-synchs.

``There's a delay in the screen above me, so if you listen to the music and watch the screen, they don't synch up,'' Spears says about her live performances. ``I think that confuses people. But I'm singing every song.''

Once in a while, though, the 18-year-old pop songstress, whose debut album '' ... Baby One More Time'' sold 9 million albums, gets a little help.

``There are times during the show, when I'm dancing so much, where I get out of breath, and we have a signal where I'm dying and they'll help me out,'' she says in the latest Rolling Stone magazine. ``Believe me, I'd give anything to do a show where I just sit there and sing.''

Her followup album, ``Oops! ... I Did It Again,'' is out this week.
