They say the show must go on … and Britney Spears knows that better than most.
"The Insider" caught up with the singer backstage at the People's Choice Awards Wednesday night, where she won for favorite pop artist, and opened up about her recent wardrobe malfunction — which nearly became a full-blown wardrobe disaster!
Spears explained what happened when her corset popped open a few days ago while she was singing "Circus" during her "Piece of Me" show in Las Vegas. In video from the performance, it's easy to spot the back of her top swinging wide open. It's also easy to see what a pro Britney is as her dancers swiftly swoop in to tie her up while she doesn't miss a beat of her song and dance.
"That's the attitude you have to have," she said of continuing to perform despite the breeze down her back. "The dancers were helping me with the back part of my dress. It was really kind of crazy."
Still, Brit Brit notes, that's showbiz. "It's what we do," she said.
Such a headline-grabbing moment didn't stop the mother-of-two from making the PCAs a night to remember. Not only was she stunning in a gorgeous Mikael D dress, but she also made her red carpet debut with current beau David Lucado. On top of all that, she also took home the sparkling Waterford Crystal trophy for favorite pop artist, which she made sure to gush about in her backstage interview.
"I've had a great support system throughout this whole year," she admitted. "My family has been wonderful … I've worked really hard, so I feel like I'm very proud of this. I'm very happy.”
