Smoking Interrupts Britney Spears’ Vancouver Concert


Who knew a smoker would have issues with smoking?

Attendees of Britney Spears’ concert in Vancouver, BC were rudely surprised last night when the singer left the stage dark for approximately 30 minutes. The interruption occurred only three songs into the headliner’s set.

According to the Vancouver Sun, concertgoers were left confused as to why the performance had stopped. After a mixture of chanting and boos, a voice on the loudspeaker said smoking in GM Place was to blame.

We’ve got the three ring thing going on, along with a bunch of acrobatics, from what we can see. Who’s going?

Has the hype already died down?

Britney Spears Lip Syncs Her Way Through Europe

Posted by Veronica Santiago Categories: Artist News, Performances, Pop,


Less than a week before her 27th birthday, Britney Spears gave international audiences a taste of what she has in store for 2009. Unfortunately, copycat ensembles and lip synced numbers aren’t probably what fans had in mind.

Last Thursday in Germany, the pop princess gave her very first “live” performance since the 2007 VMAs. And while her appearance on the 2008 Bambi Awards was far from disastrous - the physically-fit singer seemed a bit more confident - it still could have used slightly more oomph. And originality. Strangely enough, she opted to wear an outfit identical to the one Madonna has been sporting during her Sticky & Sweet tour. Britney also chose to keep her dance moves and live vocals to a minimum.

Listen to Britney Spears Circus album now, in full

Britney Spears CircusIt looks like has a marketing team in place that “gets” this whole social media game that all the cool kids are playing these days. Case in point, not only are they not concerned with album leaks, they’ve teamed with IMEEM for an exlusive pre-release landing page that lets you listen to all the tracks on Britney’s upcoming Circus album, which is set for a December 2 release. You can go there, right now, and listen to all 13 tracks in their entirety (and, for some reason, they included Radar again on this album - it was already on her last album, Blackout.)

They’ve also got a bunch of videos related to Britney, including a few music videos, music playlists, video playlists, photos, and more. It’s really well done, and anything that gives me early access to music gets a thumbs up from me. You can pre-order the album in CD form, or as downloadable MP3s, from Amazon.

[Thanks, Alana!]

Britney Spears Schedules Good Morning America Concert

Score another one for the Disney network. Just over a week after debuting Britney’s new video, it’s being reported that ABC will also be hosting Spears’ return concert.

According to the New York Post, the pop star will be hitting New York City’s Bryant Park on December 2. The Good Morning America appearance - which happens on the singer’s 27th birthday - will air on the same day the new album, Circus, drops.

While any Britney appearance would be highly-anticipated, this winter concert carries extreme significance. The morning show gig will be the first time Spears has sung (or lip-synched) in public since her 2007 MTV spectacle. The GMA event will also help kick off the tour reportedly set for next spring.

Watch Britney Spears’ Womanizer Video

Posted by Veronica Santiago Categories: Music Videos, Pop,


Forget the preview pics. Now it’s time to watch Britney’s new “Womanizer” video in full.

In the clip, Spears plays a sexy waitress, a sexy limo driver and a sexy office worker. (Sense a theme?) She also spends a great deal of time in the nude. (I guess there’s no point in wasting that toned up body.) Not surprisingly, “Womanizer” was directed by Joseph Kahn, the same man who had her in a barely-there sparkly number for her “Toxic” video.

Britney’s next album, Circus, drops on December 2.

Britney Spears in Womanizer video

Last year at this time, fans were getting their first look at Britney Spear’s horrible video for “Gimme More.” Now in just a few short days, we’ll get our chance to see what a revamped Spears has been working on.

“Womanizer,” the first single off the singer’s upcoming album, comes at a time when the 26-year-old’s life is on an upswing. Just last month, Britney picked up three awards at the 2008 VMAs for her “Piece of Me” video. Even though she repeated the same acceptance speech several times, it was hard denying a marked improvement since her last appearance.

This Friday, viewers of 20/20 will get the first opportunity to preview “Womanizer.” In the video, a physically-fit Britney takes on three different characters. (Thankfully, a woman dancing around a stripper pole is not one of them.) You can see two more of her looks after the jump.
