Britney Spears walked off the stage after 15 minutes of her Circus concert in Vancouver last night, supposedly due to a smoky arena.
According to the Vancouver Sun, an announcement was made to the crowd reminding them to quit being butt heads. "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 interruption was met by "boos" from the crowd and left the fans "really pissed off. The break in the concert ruined it for everyone. The vibe was gone."
Brit returned 30 minutes later and continued to sing and dance, but took another break two songs later. When she finished up with "Womanizer," the singer told her audience, "Vancouver, don't smoke weed."
Brit's publicist told the Associated Press, "Crew members above the stage became ill due to a ventilation issue."
Riiiight. Crew members were getting sick from pot smoke. Seriously? She couldn't come up with something more believable than that?
