BRITNEY Spears has had to postpone two of her shows in Las Vegas after a dramatic fall on stage. The star injured her ankle when she took a nasty tumble during her performance on Wednesday evening as part of her Piece of Me residency.
On advice from her doctor, the star has cancelled her shows this weekend, on May 1 and 2 at The AXIS at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino, and both are set to be rescheduled.
The singer made the announcement with Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino and Live Nation in a joint statement, and said she has cancelled so she can “heal” her ankle.
It came after the star followed in Madonna’s misplaced footsteps after falling over on stage.
The pop princess slipped and appeared to twist her ankle while dancing in a video of the painful accident.
The star was singing her 1999 tune (You Drive Me) Crazy when she lost her footing and hit the deck, and she seemed to be limping as her dancers helped her to her feet.
Ever the pro, Britney didn’t miss a beat – and she has since taken to Twitter to reassure worried fans that she’s doing OK after the “little scare”.
She tweeted: “Thank you for all of the sweet wishes! Had a little scare on stage tonight with my ankle I’m ok!”
At least Britney can be content in the knowledge that it can happy to any pop icon – as Madonna found out during the Brit Awards earlier this year.
Meanwhile, the Oops I Did It Again singer has been stunning audiences for her shows recently, stripping down to a skimpy cut-out leotard for a jaw-dropping performance in front of the screaming crowds.
Showing off her chopped blonde hair, the star was all legs as she danced on stage in heeled boots and the tiny one-piece, throwing out some of her biggest hits and proving she’s back with a bang.
Meanwhile, she’s also joining the world of gaming with news Britney is launching a mobile app.
Like Kim Kardashian and Katy Perry the blonde beauty will have an official game featuring the star’s voice, likeliness and creative influence – according to the makers.
Created by Glu Mobile, the app game developer responsible for Kim Kardashian: Hollywood, announced on Wednesday that it would be developing a game featuring the star. – Mirror
