Britney Spears may have suffered an incident on stage, but she proved that she is a born performer. Rather than panic or go back to pick up her fallen hair extensions, Spears just got on with the show. It was very similar to the way Madonna handled her incident at the Brit Awards last week.
The Daily Mail reports that Britney pretended that she did not notice the moment her blonde locks fell out of her hair. She focused on the performance, giving her fans the show that they had paid to see. Some people may have been surprised to hear that she handled the situation with dignity and professionalism, especially considering the meltdown that she had a few years ago.
It is a change from how some performers act on stage. There are regularly reports of singers acting out because something goes wrong or a person causes havoc from the crowds.
Things go wrong on stage, and Spears is no stranger to malfunctions. Just four days into her Piece of Me tour, Britney’s bustier came undone during her performance. She stood and sang, allowing her backup dancers come to the rescue.
Madonna proved that even those who have been in the limelight for decades are not except from malfunctions. She fell backwards during her performance at the Brit Awards, later stating that her cape had been tied too tightly. According to the Huffington Post, Giorgio Armani, who designed the cape, says that it was likely the performer’s fault. He said that she had been “difficult” by wanting a tie on the cape.
“This cape had a hook and she wanted a tie, and she wasn’t able to open it with her hands. That’s all there is to it. Madonna, as we all know, is very difficult.”
However, the pop icon got right back up again and continued performing. That drew admiration from those watching as she proved to be professional. She later took to Instagram to tell her fans that she was not hurt during the fall.
As for Britney Spears, the incident will not affect her continued show at Planet Hollywood. She has signed on until 2017, as the venue confirmed that she had been professional and likeable the whole time. She has also brought the company a lot of money due to her performances.
Despite fans sharing the video of the moment the incident happened, Britney has not mentioned it on social media. It is likely something that she wants to put behind her so she can move on with the show. It is another sign of how much of a professional Britney Spears is, despite her rocky past.
