Britney Spears’ Las Vegas show Piece of Me is getting all its controversies out of the way early, it would seem. We’ve already had lip syncing accusations and reports that staffers have to undergo random pat-downs. Apparently what happens in Vegas doesn’t actually stay in Vegas, and that includes that time Miley Cyrus kissed that backup dancer. Now Britney can check “wardrobe malfunction” off her to-do list list as well. This past weekend her dress/bodysuit/thing popped open at the back while she was performing “Circus.”
Thankfully it was captured on video, and even more thankfully (that’s arguable) nobody saw any inappropriate body parts, painted on or otherwise, because Britney was a total pro about it and allowed her backup dancer to fix the malfunction. She even kept lip syncing! If we’re being completely honest, though, she might not have even realized it was happening. Of course, the very fact that it looks like she’s unaware might just be because of her professionalism. She could actually be thinking the entire time: “Oh my god my clothes are coming off! Help! SOMEBODY FIX THIS NOW!” but nobody would know. I’m not a Britney mind reader so I could be wrong, but it looks like she’s just focusing on remembering the dance moves until the dancer grabs onto her. And then she’s probably thinking, “Why is this guy undoing my dress?”
Britney is apparently so blissfully unaware of what’s going on with her career — from her album bombing to her documentary bombing to pretty much just things bombing — that it wouldn’t surprise me if she didn’t know about this either. But while her ignorance of the other things makes me kind of sad for her, it would probably be a good thing if she didn’t realize the audience was a dance move away from seeing her butt crack. That’s something to really panic about, and panic doesn’t really look great when you’re trying to entertain people. That’s why backup dancers are always there to close your back up. Eh? Eh? I tried.
