Tampa man selling Britney Spears photo to care for his sick cat



Tbdbritneyspears031309 Anthony Pernicka, a 26-year-old Tampa man who attended Sunday's Britney Spears concert, is selling three photos of her wardrobe malfunction on eBay for $1,000 so he can take care of his sick cat. Well, $999.99, anyway. No pussycat jokes, thank you very much.

Much has been made about Brit's performance, during which her microphone was still turned on when she ostensibly mentioned to her wardrobe people that a certain part of her anatomy was "hanging out," but we've been trying to take the high road here, and Fox 13 won't let us.

Pernicka, who recently moved here from the Fort Lauderdale area, went to the concert with his mother, during which he snapped the particular images during her performance of I'm A Slave 4 U. His mother expressed a bit of surprise, naturally.

"She said, 'Oh my God I can't believe her people let her come out like that,'" he told FOX 13.

Pernicka said he wasn't going to try to sell the photos, which he says are much better than grainy images on, but then his cat, Rocky, needed more than $2,000 worth of work at the vet.

"I feel kinda bad about that," he said. "Then the whole thing happened with my cat."

As of Thursday evening, there were no bids on the photos, which Pernicka says he is giving up rights to so that the new owner may resell them. The auction end on March 18, so take a look at the (censored) pics here. And shed a tear for poor Rocky.
