Britney Spears fans got a little more than they bargained for when her Circus tour rolled through Vancouver last night. According to the Vancouver Sun, Britney had barely started performing when she abruptly left the stage, leaving the crowd quite literally in the dark. After a few minutes, an announcement informed the audience that “It’s become uncomfortable and unsafe for the performers, including Ms. Spears…The show will resume as soon as the air around the stage is clear.” (Perez Hilton’s sources say that was a reference to billowing clouds of tobacco and/or marijuana smoke in the arena.) The pop star finally returned to the stage after about 45 awkward minutes and performed a full set, only to reportedly bid her fans a foul-mouthed farewell at the very end of her encore. Take it from Britney (or someone who sounded a lot like her): “Don’t smoke weed! Rock out with your c—s out! Peace, motherf—ers!”
Is this whole incident hilarious? Weird? Does it make you think differently about Spears at all? Check out the obviously NSFW clip of Britney’s encore outburst below, and let us know what you think.
