Britney Spears Walks Off Stage During Concert


The show didn’t go on in Vancouver Wednesday night after Britney Spears pulled the plug on her sold-out Circus concert 15 minutes and three songs into her performance – departing the stage and leaving the audience in the GM Place in the dark for more than half an hour. Boos ensued.

Cigarette smoke from the crowd was blamed, with a female voice announcing to the crowd, “The building is awfully smoky. It is uncomfortable for everyone on stage, including Ms. Spears. Please extinguish all cigarettes – this is a non-smoking building, and the show will resume when the smoke on the stage is cleared,” the Vancouver Sun reports.

Until the agitated crowd settled down, GM Place was filled with piped-in intermission music played at hockey games – which, one concertgoer told PEOPLE, left the fans “really pissed off. The break in the concert ruined it for everyone. The vibe was gone.”

When she did return, Spears, 27, delivered a well-received Bollywood take on “Me Against the Music,” followed by “Everytime” – during which she asked the crowd “What’s up, Vancouver?” before she again left the stage, some 90 seconds before the end of the song.

The concert concluded with Spears singing “Womanizer” and advising the still-restless crowd, “Vancouver, don’t smoke weed.” Her sign-off was also peppered with a couple of X-rated expletives and a warning to “drive safe.”

After the show, a statement was posted on the singer’s Web site: “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.”

Spears kicked off her Circus tour of the North America and England in New Orleans on March 3. Her father and attorneys are exploring the possibility of expanding the tour, says AP.

Is Britney Spears Trying to End Her Father’s Control?


It seems Britney Spears’s life has gone from soap opera to spy novel.

Sam Lutfi’s younger sister Christina testified in a Los Angeles court Wednesday that she recently snuck a cell phone to the pop star at a Beverly Hills hotel – a plan allegedly hatched by Spears herself.

Spears, 27, whose phone access is strictly limited by her father Jamie, had initially called Sam’s cell phone number in mid-January to speak with Christina.

“[Britney] told me she wanted to get a hold of Sam,” said Christina, 25, whose brother had once been Spears’s manager. “She wanted him to help her find a lawyer, and wanted someone to get a prepaid cell phone to her. She was scared because her father was blackmailing her with visitation rights over her kids.”

Spears allegedly told Christina to meet her on the fifth floor gym of the Peninsula Hotel on Jan. 16. When Christina arrived, Spears was working out with her mother while a bodyguard stood nearby. But they rendezvoused in a sauna where Christina gave her a phone, saying it was from Sam and ex-boyfriend Adnan Ghalib, which Spears then hid in a locker. “She asked me, ‘Will Sam be able to help me?’” Christina added.

The phone, however, was later discovered by Spears’s security team and confiscated from her purse.  (There’s more!) (more…)

Britney Spears’ Father Forces Leading Fan Site to Shut Down



Jordan Miller — the owner and webmaster of Britney Spears’ most popular fan site, — has spent the past five years supporting the singer, but he’s about to be shut down by the pop star herself.

Although Miller asserts that the sole purpose of the site is “to support the icon of our generation, Britney Spears, and to continuously stick by her through the good and bad,” Spears’ father Jamie has taken legal action over some of the content.

“I have been battling the conservatorship Britney is currently placed under for months now,” Miller wrote in a message to fellow fans on the site’s homepage Friday. “When I did not conform to the requests and demands Britney’s management and father, Jamie Spears, recently put upon BreatheHeavy to stay quiet, they in turn became angry and malicious, launching, what I feel is an unjust attack, against me and my website.”

He received a legal notice from Jamie’s lawyers pressuring him to dismantle the site by 3 p.m. PST Friday, or face an injunction, claiming they will pursue legal action by Jamie, who is allowed to do so as her conservator.

Miller also wrote that Brad Rose, the lawyer representing Spears in this case, told him in a telephone conversation that “you are an uber fan who’s gone a little too far.”

Spears’ legal team claims the site is “replete with willful, unauthorized” use of copyrighted lyrics to songs as well as video and audio recordings and photos of Spears.

“This entire site thrives because of you, the fans, who support Britney by buying tickets to her show, merchandise and music,” he wrote. “Sadly, your hard-earned money that goes to supporting your favorite celebrity, is now money being used to potentially sue me, a major fan and supporter of Britney Spears, and hide fans from knowing the truth.”

He added: “This conservatorship Britney is placed under, which controls every aspect of her life, is now clenching the future of her biggest fansite,” Miller writes.

Because his site, which is a non-profitable endeavor, costs a minimum of $350 per month to run, he is asking viewers to donate funds until “the situation has been handled.”

If the site remains online, Spears’ legal team says they will pursue damages and “injunctive relief in connection with the blatant violation of her rights of publicity and privacy.”
