We watched the video of the tumble Britney Spears took on stage Wednesday evening and ouch! You could see immediately that it was going to leave a mark. And it did. Spears has canceled two of her shows in Las Vegas this weekend.
Spears is nearing the end of her two-year residency at Hollywood Resort & Casino, where she opened her “Piece of Me” show in December 2013.
"Britney injured her ankle during her performance Wednesday evening and her doctor has advised her not to perform Friday and Saturday evening so that she may heal," her publicist said in a statement reported by various news outlets.
Earlier on Thursday TMZ posted video of the fall – see it here – that happened when Spears was dancing on stage with her backup dancers. She clutched at her ankle before being helped up from the floor.
On Thursday Spears treated fans to the artwork for “Pretty Girls,” her upcoming collaboration with Iggy Azalea. It’s very, uh, interesting.
