Britney Spears performs at House of Blues

Britney Spears performed in San Diego at the House of Blues yesterday, her first public concert appearance in nearly three years. She started off with “Baby One More Time” and performed for less than 15 minutes before thanking everybody for coming and playing a taped Madonna song as she exited.

The comeback didn’t hit a high note for everyone, some of whom paid upward of $125 a ticket. “It looked like she lip-synched her way through the whole thing,” said a disappointed Morgan Segall, 20, who flew in from San Francisco for the night.

I can’t believe people actually paid $125 to see Britney Spears sing for less than 15 minutes. Their money would’ve been better spent investing in my patent pending Trash Can Filled With Burning Money. I don’t want to get ahead of myself, but I expect it to win two or three Nobel prizes.
