"Longest flight ever but we had a great time. Really cool plane and the V staff took great care of us. So excited to be here! -Britney" Brit tweeted Thursday morning (Aussie time.)

But in the wake of her exorbitant ticket prices and the reveleation that she'll be lip-synching for most of her show, the Australian government is contemplating a law that will require performers to disclose the fact that they're singing less than live on the ticket.

Consumer Affairs Minister Tony Robinson told the Herald Sun, "We believe it is good business practice for concert promoters to make it clear to consumers before they buy tickets whether the performer will be miming, and make this clear on advertising, posters and other promotional materials." Robinson also said that concert promoters could be prosecuted if they implied stars were singing live when they weren't!

No offense to the Aussies, but after about a year on tour, if they didn't realize Brit was lip-synching, then I have a bridge I can sell them ...
