After rolling her ankle onstage in Las Vegas during her “Piece of Me” show at Planet Hollywood, Britney made a surprise visit to “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” on Tuesday to give everyone watching an update on her injury and to make a special announcement. “We just watched what happened, and first of all, what a trooper,” Ellen began to say on her show “You just kept on singing and tried to keep dancing on the floor. What happened?”
Britney went on to say that what she was doing wasn’t actually that hard to do. “I was just kind of bopping around.” She explained. “And I’ve done like eight years worth of shows. Plenty of shows! And I’ve never actually fell onstage, 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.”
Spears reached out to fans via Twitter, and on April 30th she said “Braks my heart to share this news. After hurting my ankle last night my doctor has advised me not to perform this weekend #Heartbroken. Your kind words mean everything to me! I’m rescheduling this weekend’s show and will let ya’ll know when we have the new dates. xoxo.”
Spears later explained on The Ellen Degeneres Show that in the fall she had torn some ligaments, even if she didn’t look like she was in a lot of pain. Spears said that she would be extending her stay at Planet Holiday for three months, to which Ellen responded with “I just think you should give our entire audience tickets.”
And that’s exactly what Spears did. The lucky audience members won’t be seeing the same show either! during On-Air With Ryan Seacrest on Monday, Spears explained that “We’re going to change up the show and make things more fresh and interesting moving forward.”
We’re glad to have her back and better than ever.
