Annette Funicello, who was part of the original cast of the 1950's Disney Television program, The Mickey Mouse Club, passed away yesterday at the age of 70.
So when TMZ caught Brit getting into her car and got the chance to ask her how she felt about it Brit responded with "I think that's great."
Okay the singer may have been being sarcastic BUT really!
Watch the video below:
She later on tweeted out that she "misheard" the question and is Devastated about the passing of Annette
