In a short video clip posted to Instagram, you can see Brit dancing up a storm barefoot to Kings of Leon's "Sex on Fire," which (as she explained) helps her grip the floor better. She twirls around and around, and whips out some very fancy footwork, and then, at the very end, you can hear a snap as she drops to the floor to grip her foot.
Spears explained in the caption, "I haven't danced in six months so I was full throttle at this spot!!!! And yes …. I know I'm barefoot …. don't laugh but I grip the floor better that way!!!! PS you can hear where I broke my foot here ….. sorry it's kind of loud!!!!!"
*Warning: This is not for the squeamish.
News of Britney's foot injury was revealed when the entertainer's longtime boyfriend, Sam Asghari, posted pictures of them at the hospital using the cat ears filter, and Spears' cast with the word "stronger" written across it in blue and green marker.
He captioned the photos, "When you break something it tends to heal stronger specially when you’re my Girl. my lioness broke her metatarsal bone on her foot doing what she loves which is dancing. Wishing her the best recovery so she can jump, run, and dance her butt off."
Wishing Britney a speedy recovery!
