Britney Spears Suffers Ankle Injury After Embarrassing Stage Fall
By Jackie Willis
UPDATE: Hours after Britney's tweet, Planet Hollywood announced that her May 1 and May 2 shows would be rescheduled. "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," they said in a statement. _________________________________________________________
During her performance of "(You Drive Me) Crazy" (at the very end of the video), the 33-year-old pop princess toppled over in her sky-high heels and then sat there for a moment, clearly injured from the fall.
The embarrassing moment was caught on video by a few fans in the audience, and Spears even took to her Twitter to address the injury.
"Thank you for all of the sweet wishes!" she wrote on Thursday. "Had a little scare on stage tonight with my ankle but I'm ok!"
