Read her lips.

Britney Spears is hopping mad about the furor in Australia over her lip-synching at a concert on her “Circus” tour, her tour promoter says.

“Britney is aware of all this and she’s extremely upset by it,” Paul Dainty told The Australian.

What really put Spears, 27, over the edge were reports that fans walked out of the show in Perth on Friday, something Dainty calls hogwash.

“It’s the biggest lie I’ve ever heard,” he said. “I’m so angry. We can take heat if there’s something wrong and people can review shows badly – that’s something you have to live with – but to say people stormed out of the show was an absolute fabrication.”

The show, at which prime seats went for up to $1,300, was supposedly so lackluster that fans fled by the third song.

But Spears’s manager said nearly 20,000 Britney fans can’t be wrong.

“Its unfortunate that one journalist in Perth didn’t enjoy the show last night,” Adam Leber Tweeted on Spears’s Twitter account. “Fortunately the other 18,272 fans in attendance did.”
