No Elephants in Britney’s ‘Circus’
Unless you’re a die-hard Britney Spears fan and regular visitor to her Web site, you heard it here first: The top-secret stage design plans for Britney’s upcoming “Circus” tour will include no live animals.
That’s right, folks, in an “EXCLUSIVE: STAGE DESIGN ANNOUNCEMENT” (seriously, that’s what it’s called, all caps and everything), Britney’s tour designer had the following to say:
“We’ve taken the idea of a traditional ‘big-top circus’ and given it a Britney Spears twist. This circus is unlike anything you’ve ever seen before. It’s sexy, fun, explosive, and full of surprises. … While avoiding such traditional circus elements as live animals, we’ve created something innovative and exciting using contortionists, dancers, lighting, fire, and other special effects.” [emphasis added]
Omigaw! If I were 12, I would so be there.
You may remember that Britney ran into trouble with PETA a couple of months ago when we learned that she had used elephants and lions in her “Circus” video. We shot her a letter asking her to leave animals out of her Circus tour and—lo and behold—our wish has been granted.
