Britney's Latest Trainwreck
In what seems like a sad Ashlee Simpson-esque flashback, poor Britney had some technical difficulties at her most recent "comeback" gig last night at the House of Blues in Orlando. No, no, her new wig (which was long and blond by the way) didn't fly off.
According to People, when the cd or record she was lip syncing "Do Something" to began to skip, she was forced to improvise, which in this case meant she turned her back to the audience and played it off pretty well as evidenced above.
Concert-goers reported that besides the music skipping, Britney's headset microphone (that had little to no function really) broke during a dance sequence. Quite the finale to a 14-minute show of Spears snippets and a medley of old Britney stand-bys.
Brit Brit kept a good attitude throughout the performance, though, and it will be interesting to see what the truth was about her cross-country flight.
The NY Post reported that Britney complained that United Airlines' seats are not up to snuff which made her hold up her flight from LAX to Orlando. Page Six says that she stormed off because her seat was not leather. The flight was delayed for over an hour, because they had to come back to the gates and find she and her entourage's luggage. Britney then opted to charter a plane to Florida instead of sitting in something fabric covered...the nerve of United!
X-17 says Britney never had a United ticket and always planned on going by way of private jet thru Van Nuys airport.
