Britney Spears shares video of the moment 'her foot breaks' while dancing

A lot of people don't realize that being a performer, like a singer or a dancer, comes with a great deal of drawbacks. These professionals push their body's capacity to their absolute limits, as much as any athlete or sports player would, and the rigorous demands that all that exercise takes upon you will get worse the older you become.

For instance, this week, legendary pop star Britney Spears shared a toe-curling video on social media showing the exact moment she painfully broke her foot while practicing a dance routine.

Take a look at the brutal video below:

Taking to her official Instagram account, Brtiney uploaded a short clip showing herself wearing a yellow sports bra and gym shorts attempting a complex series of moves dancing to Kings of Leon's hit track 'Sex On Fire'.

However, at the very end of the video, she didn't quite manage to nail the landing, and her foot can be seen painfully bending the wrong way. A loud popping noise can be heard, and she collapses in serious pain.

Britney captioned the harrowing footage: "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 !!!!! [sic]"

Britney's fans were first made aware of her injury last week, after her partner, Sam Asghari, posted pictures of the two of them in hospital.

Asghari wrote: "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  #stronger [sic]."
