Britney Tweeted her condolences after hearing the news of Annette Funicello (one of the original members of the 1950s “Mickey Mouse Club”) passing away.
She was a role model for me during my days as a Mousketeer. #Heartbroken
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.
Funicello, who was 70, died from complications from multiple sclerosis.
“We are so sorry to lose Mother,” her three children said in a statement. “She is no longer suffering anymore and is now dancing in heaven. We love and will miss her terribly.”
