At one of the first performances of her Piece of Me show in Las Vegas, Britney Spears’s dress decided it needed a little break. In the middle of “Circus,” the back of this corset garment just popped itself open.
But blame cannot only be foisted upon the tired costume. With so much attention on Britney’s abs, her back too wanted its moment in the spotlight. Here I am! it announced to the crowd. Backstage is now front and center, kid!
In spite of her unprofessional backside, Britney did not rage at her show-stealing spine. She did not send it another passive aggressive e-mail, nor did she scold it for the umpteenth time. She dealt with the whole ordeal like she had been around malfunctioning clothes for decades. Spears continued to be flung across the stage by no fewer than five circus attendants, and only paused spinning when two faithful backup dancers attended to the seam. Worth noting: It is truly something to watch two men in half-shirts and outrageous pants fixate with extreme concentration on some clasps.
