Pop star cancels two shows after painful tumble
Britney Spears got a little too “Crazy” during the Wednesday night performance of her Las Vegas show “Britney: Piece of Me”. The pop star took a fall on stage, rolling her ankle badly and forcing her to cancel two shows.
Spears takes a tumble right at the end of the video, but you should really watch the whole thing — both to get a brief taste of Britbrit’s Vegas spectacular (which Billboard estimates is bring in $15 million a year) and to build up to the painful climax.
Initial reports suggested Spears would walk it off. But then she came out with the sad news herself:
Breaks my heart to share this news. After hurting my ankle last night my doctor has advised me not to perform this weekend #Heartbroken ?
