Britney Spears Recovers From Onstage Wardrobe Malfunction Like A Champ

The show must go on! Britney Spears handled an onstage wardrobe malfunction over the weekend like a total pro.

According to a fan video posted on YouTube, the pop icon was mid-performance during her “Piece of Me” residency show at Planet Hollywood in Las Vegas when her bra top became suddenly undone.

Britney immediately held her hands to her chest to keep the fabric in place, as two backup dancers rushed to try and refasten the straps while she continued singing and dancing through her cover of Joan Jett’s “I Love Rock ‘n Roll.” The issue appeared remedied at first, until the garment snapped open again. 

The 34-year-old acknowledged the awkward situation with a goofy face to the audience, keeping the number moving as her dancers continued to work on the costume mishap.

When the show transitioned to Britney’s hit “Gimme More,” however, one dancer found a more permanent solution and simply handed the star his button-up shirt to wear. Problem solved!

It’s not the first time the “Make Me” singer has had to think fast with the help of her “Piece of Me” squad. Last year, the back zipper on Britney’s one-piece bodysuit slid open during her rendition of “3,” and stayed that way despite the frantic efforts of her dancers.
