bspearslipsync.jpgLOS ANGELES, California (X17online) - Britney Spears' lip syncing was causing controversy In Australia even before she arrived for the Pacific leg of her Circus tour and now Spears is reportedly feeling the backlash.

Ticket prices are as much as $1300 for VIP seats and now that Spears has performed her first few dates Down Under, fans and critics are getting even more vicious about the quality of her show, causing Spears to become "extremely upset," according to reports.

Australia's Daily Telegraph reports that Spears holed up in her Perth hotel after fans walked out on her "lackluster" performance over the weekend (a claim her promoter, Paul Dainty, flat-out denies.)

"Britney is aware of all this and she's extremely upset about it," Dainty told The Australian. "She's a human being," he continued. "I'm embarrassed, with such a big international entourage here with Britney, to be part of the Australian media when I see that kind of totally inaccurate reporting."

Fans have come to Spears' defense on her website, posting several messages of encouragement about her shows down under. Even John Mayer defended the pop princess, tweeting, "If you're shocked that Britney was lip-syncing at her concert and want your money back, life may continue to be hard for you."

Plus, she's got something to look forward to -- Brit's boys are reportedly set to join their mom down under!
