Ignoring -- at least for a day -- the on-going problems of poor reviews and ticket sales plaguing the Australian leg of her world tour, Britney Spears, her agent boyfriend Jason Trawick and her sons Preston and Jayden toured the Royal Botanic Gardens in Sydney, Australia Saturday.
The Gardens were a fun distraction from the controversy that has sprung up around Spears' well-known lip-syncing, something many Australians have spoken out against.
The problems began with her first Australian show, in Perth, a week ago, where some fans left mid-performance.
The Circus Starring Britney Spears is in Syndey for four nights starting Monday at the Acer Arena. The tour wraps in Adelaide November 29 and the local newpaper, The Advertiser, is reporting that the venue has yet to sell out. Tickets are also being listed on eBay, The Advertiser reports, but "most of those on offer had received zero bids up to late yesterday."
