Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star, Erika Jayne, was named and shamed by Dutch pop singer Amber for using and lip syncing to one of her songs in her Las Vegas Residency show, Bet It All On Blonde without permission.
***In case you aren’t into xennial dance music … Amber is responsible for the club BANGERS: If You Could Read My Mind, Sexual (La Da Di), and This Is Your Night … which was used by the controversial RHOBH star without consent.***
Amber began, “At first, I thought it was a drag queen… you know…where men dress up as women and give a dramatic lip sync and people know and understand it as a clear art form and not being the actual real artist of the song and I can respect that, as I see that as an appreciation for the artist from the LGBTQIA+ community…”
“After a little research however, it turns out, she was on one of these ‘housewives‘ reality shows … no wonder I do not know her, as I do not watch that kind of stuff.”
“Then,” continued Amber, “I was told that she supposedly also is a singer with her own dance records….ok… so then let me ask you this: Why are you not taking out a mechanical license and just set up a little produced track yourself and add YOUR OWN vocals on it and then lip sync the hell out of it (if you must lip sync, otherwise go live, girl!) without having to act like my vocals are all yours.”
“Never, in a million years, as a self proclaimed performing artist, would I even come up with the thought of lip syncing to a track and a vocal of another artist (on a paid show on top), unless that is all I do and all people know me clearly for, as a drag queen…”
