LAS VEGAS (AP) -- An onstage ankle injury has pop star Britney Spears rescheduling her Friday and Saturday night performances on the Las Vegas Strip so she doesn't, oops, do it again.

A statement from the Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino where Spears performs her "Britney: Piece of Me" show said Thursday the star's doctor recommended she take the two days to heal.

The statement says Spears injured herself during a Wednesday night performance.

Video footage of the performer shot by an audience member shows Spears kicking and high-stepping on high-heels during her single "(You Drive Me) Crazy" before her left ankle gives way.

Spears took to Twitter Wednesday night to thank her fans for the well wishes, saying she "had a little scare on stage tonight with my ankle but I'm ok!"
