Britney Spears is a trooper!

The 33-year-old pop star recently stopped by The Ellen DeGeneres Show, where she explained her stage fall last month that forced her to cancel a few of her scheduled shows at Planet Hollywood in Las Vegas. Britney's spill happened during her performance of "(You Drive Me) Crazy," and resulted in some torn ligaments.

"Well, I actually wasn't doing anything that hard," Britney explains. "I was just kind of bopping around. And I've done like, eight years worth of shows. Plenty of shows and I've never actually fell on stage, so it was really kind of embarrassing."

"But yeah I fell down and I got up, and my dancers kind of guided me to keep going," she adds. "So, not bad."

Despite the setback, in the "Pretty Girls" singer's own words, "the show must go on" -- and it definitely will. Britney also announced to the audience that she'll be extending her Vegas residency for three more months! The decision is certainly a good one for her bank account, as her two-year Vegas deal reportedly earns her $15 million per year ($310,000 per show).
