Whoa! Britney Spears found herself in a pretty ‘Toxic’ situation during her Vegas show on Jan. 2. The singer suffered a set malfunction that left her stranded — literally — while thousands of fans watched. The entire accident was caught on video — watch how this scary scene played out!
Not again! Britney Spears, 34, the queen of pop herself, was found in yet another alarming situation during one of her Vegas performances Watch as Britney maneuvers out of a high-flying-stunt gone wrong — as every moment was caught on video!
Queen Britney, dressed in a lacy, red leotard, had to be rescued by a stagehand due to a malfunctioning harness. Poor Brit usually finds herself flying over the audience at Planet Hollywood while she performs her hit, “Toxic,” but on Jan. 2, she found herself stranded on an elevated platform connected to a tree-like set piece. When she realized her device had failed, the seasoned performer did her best to cover up the glitch — all while the show was still going on around her! Talk about talent!
But did Britney falter? No, of course not! Stuck on her dramatic set piece, the pop icon kept dancing and twirling and throwing her hair around. In fact, she did such a good job of keeping her cool that no one even realized something was wrong until one of her crew members ran onto the platform from backstage to assist her.
Once the stagehand successfully freed the star, Britney ran downstairs to take part in a dance number with her backup performers — what a trooper!
But we shouldn’t be surprised: this isn’t the first time Britney’s been forced to hold her own when disaster’s struck during one of her Vegas performances, leaving fans to say “oops, it happened again!” Poor Brit sprained her ankle on stage during a sold out performance on April 29, 2015, but, like the pro that she is, kept dancing. Thankfully the star was okay and only had to cancel three of her Vegas shows, phew! Six months later in October, misfortune struck again when Britney’s bodysuit came undone. Luckily, the mother-of-two was spared total embarrassment thanks to some roadies who zipped her back up in a flash.
After recovering from various on-stage blunders with poise and professionalism, it’s clear that the original Pop Princess is and always will be music royalty.
HollywoodLifers, how do you think Britney handled this harness mishap? Was she cool under pressure or was it an epic, and obvious, fail?
