Britney Spears

Annette Funicello's Passing

'Is Great'

4/8/2013 1:21 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0408_britney_videoMaybe she hadn't heard the news, maybe she didn't understand the question, or maybe she's just a coldhearted person who hates awesome people ... but when we asked Britney Spears today about the passing of Annette Funicello, she took a moment, smiled, and said, "I think that's great!"

Funicello, the most famous original member of Mickey Mouse Club, passed away today at the age of 70 ... so asking Britney, the most famous modern member, about her death made complete sense. 

Britney's answer, however, made none.

1:30 PM PT -- Britney just tweeted, "Misheard a question I was asked earlier by press while I was out and about. I am DEVASTATED to hear about the passing of Annette Funicello ... She was a role model for me during my days as a Mouseketeer."

Come on, TMZ! Really, exploit the fact that this girl did not hear the question properly? Are you THAT HARD UP for a "news moment?" Britney was a Mouseketeer - she darned well knows who is Annette is!

Shame on you for printing that. She didn't hear what your person said. Why make news out of someone as fragile as Brit..I thought better of TMZ...

Please, TMZ what are you trying to do? I really think she did not hear the question, maybe to much traffic maybe the wind, but this is such a non article, give Brittney and the readers a break, if we want crap journalism, we can go to the Enquirer! Annette, may you RIP!
