Britney Smoked Out

Britney Spears suspended a concert performance after three songs because smoke from the audience was deemed a possible danger to crew in the ceiling. During the twenty minute break the PA announced the show would not go on if cigarettes and marijuana continued to be smoked… eventually Britney returned, but finished the show with patronising advice: “Drive safe. Don't smoke weed!" This from a woman who once went slightly bonkers and shaved her head. Celeb vulture Perez Hilton has a confirmation quote from the record company: “We want to apologize to all the fans who attended our Vancouver show tonight for the brief pause in Britney's set. Crew members above the stage became ill due to a ventilation issue.” Which begs the question: who goes to a Britney concert to smoke pot?
