Britney Spears has followed in Janet Jackson’s footsteps, by accidentally exposing herself to music industry executives during a private show.
The Toxic singer, 22, was giving an exclusive performance to some radio bosses after one of her concerts in Miami, Florida – when her breasts fell out of her skimpy top.
An insider jokes, “It was a wardrobe malfunction. But unlike Janet Jackson’s, no one was saying it was intentional.
“The flashbulbs really went off.”
Jackson caused controversy at February’s Super Bowl when her duet partner Justin Timberlake exposed her breast in front of a TV audience of 100 million.

‘Toxic’ has retired on both the UK and USA Editions of TRL. Last Friday, Toxic finished 7th after 40 days on the countdown. And, today in the US, it finished 6th, after 50 days on the cowntdown! I don’t think she fell out of either countdowns once the whole time, which is excellent!
Don’t forget to tune in to TRL (America) Next Monday, April 12th for the premiere of the Everytime video ! There won’t be a Making the Video this time. That’s one week today…can’t wait!
Pop beauty Britney Spears is begging tour bosses to scrap the remaining dates of her world tour, because she’s struggling to cope with the heavy workload.
The Toxic singer cancelled a gig in Moline, Illinois on Thursday after suffering a mystery illness, and previously pulled out of two shows on her Onyx Hotel Tour, blaming a knee injury. But sources close to Britney claim she’s ready to axe her live extravaganza altogether.
An insider tells Britain’s Daily Star, “She is very tired and wants a rest. She pulled out of the show last week because she wasn’t feeling very well. The gruelling schedule has really got to her now and she wants a break.
“Performing on stage night-in, night-out, takes its toll and Britney is beginning to feel it now.”

If this is true, I’ll go crazy ! Lol… PLEASE note that this “source” spoke to THE DAILY STAR the WORST daily tabloid for rumours and lies in the UK, this is very unlikely to be true.
A bus driver transporting crew and equipment for Britney Spears’ concert tour led police on a brief pursuit Monday and later failed to appear in court on charges of speeding and disobeying police, authorities said.
State police said a trooper attempted to stop the bus in Northfield around 7 a.m. as it traveled south on Interstate 93. They said the bus was going 78 mph in a 65 mph zone. Spears was not on the bus.
State Police Sgt. B.P. Mathews said driver David Raines indicated as though he would pull over at one point but continued driving about 10 miles to Canterbury, where he was stopped after pulling off the highway.
Mathews said Raines, 51, of Tennessee, was arrested but was allowed to continue on to deliver the crew and equipment to Manchester, where Spears is to perform Tuesday night.
Raines was to appear in Concord District Court later in the day for an arraignment, but Mathews said he didn’t show up. Mathews said the driver could lose his driving privileges in New Hampshire, as well as Tennessee.
Mathews said the crew on the bus was asleep at the time and not aware of the stop.
Britney Spears brought her raunchy show to Toronto on Saturday for the first Canadian date of her tour, complete with scenes of simulated sex that sent some parents and their young children home early while a mostly female audience of teens and 20-somethings hooted and hollered for more.
“Disgusting,” was the one-word review from nine-year-old Carly Woodcox. “I think she should never do that again,” said the Peterborough, Ont., resident, reacting to the American superstar’s performance during Touch of My Hand.
Emerging from under a white robe in the later part of the show to reveal a near-transparent sequin-covered bodysuit, Spears thrashed about in a bathtub while dancers simulated sex acts in various rooms of the hotel-themed backdrop.
Silhouettes of couples and threesomes could be seen as a fit young male dancer rubbed a red silk pillow about his nether-regions in the foreground.
The soft-core inspired choreography continued into the next song, Breathe on Me, in which the 22-year-old singer rolled about on a bed in her bra and panties under the watchful gaze of the same male dancer. The two ended up in a full, open mouthed kiss displayed on three giant video screens.
“That would be something for adult viewing only,” said Woodcox’s aunt, Judy Doughty, who added she was embarrassed for having brought her niece to the show and said they would talk about it on the drive home.
“A little too much for this age group,” said Lucy Triagiai, who stood up to escort home three young girls, ages five through 11, moments after the simulated sex acts began. “I don’t think it was necessary.”
But the majority of the audience stayed and gave Spears a standing ovation at the end of it all. The singer, who cancelled three shows in as many weeks after injuring her knee during a dance routine last month, showed no signs of slowing down Saturday.
The American music superstar wriggled her toned and tanned body to such hits as Toxic and I’m A Slave 4 U, rarely venturing too far back into her five-year career that’s seen her transform from schoolgirl cutie to provocative temptress.
While the Lolita-esque video for her 1999 debut single Baby One More Time was delivered in the guise of schoolgirl innocence – after all it’s not Britney’s fault if men find kilts attractive – Saturday’s show left no doubt that former Mickey Mouse Club regular is all grown up.
Taking a number of cues from her mentor Madonna (news – web sites), who actually ran into trouble with Toronto police in 1990 when her Blonde Ambition tour came to town complete with scenes of simulated self-pleasure and general naughtiness, Spears bared a lot more than her soul through her music.
Through numerous costumes changes there was plenty of exposed skin on display by Spears and the male and female dancers who accompanied her on stage.
Not one to leave any suggestive stone unturned, Spears also made reference to her Las Vegas quickie wedding on Jan. 3 that ended in an annulment some 55 hours later.
“I see a lot of cute fellas,” she said in a scripted moment that’s been repeated many times during the tour. “Are you feeling lucky? Who knows, I might marry you.”
If the object of those saucy antics was to once and for all put to bed a virginal image so carefully cultivated early in her career, Spears has succeeded. Even Playboy founder Hugh Hefner, 77, is impressed. He told Us Weekly magazine earlier this year that not only would he like Spears to pose naked in his magazine, but that he’d gladly take her on as one of his many girlfriends.
Spears was scheduled to perform Sunday night in Montreal before heading back to the U.S.
There have been reports that the tour could be headed to China, pending approval from the government. If the show goes off as planned, Spears -with more than 54 million records sold worldwide – would become one of the biggest international pop stars to play the communist state since it was established in 1949.
What is it with fake things this week? The Showtime DVD I posted yesterday is fake. It should still be released but a Brazilian fan made that cover.

Thanks to Britney Peru for sending this to me.
I’ve received a lot of emails from concerned fans telling me that the article which I posted on the site was a hoax. It was. I’m sorry for the confusion, but someone told me it was from MTV.com and I didn’t look there.
Once again, I appologize. The next single will be Everytime in all countries. Stay tuned for more updates later today!
While busy touring overseas with her Onyx Hotel tour, Britney Spears fans here in America will be kept entertained with the release of her new single “Brave New Girl” and her latest project, an executive produced ABC television movie also entitled “Brave New Girl”.
The 3rd single off of the double platinum album is to follow the release of the movie which airs on ABC in early April, then coming out on DVD and VHS at the beginning of May.
Spears recently shot a music video for the ballad “Everytime”, which will now be postponed to make room for promotion of the upcoming movie. “Brave New Girl” hits the airwaves on April 19. The video will be a collage of the life Spears lives, including shots from her past, as well as present.
The new video will debut on Total Request Live Friday April 23, at 5/4pm ET.
Please note that this information is only official for the USA. They could do a split release like past albums and have Brave New Girl in the US and Everytime in Europe and the rest of the world. This is likely because other countries won’t see the tele-film “Brave New Girl” on ABC, so there wouldn’t be much point in releasing Brave New Girl for that reason outside of America.
