Oops, Britneys done it again. But this time its her onstage banter shes made a mess of.

Halfway through her Brighton Pride performance this weekend, it seems The Princess of Pop somehow forgot where she was.

Britney was heard shouting over to a backing dancer as she appeared on stage at the annual LGBT celebration – which saw a huge crowd of 57,000 flock to the south England city for the parade and performance.

In a clip posted to social media, shes heard yelling to a backing dancer where are we?, before shouting: Whats up Brighton Pride!

Smooth, Britney. So smooth.

Luckily, the fans didnt seem to notice and werent disappointed by the set at all.

Pumping out classics like Womanizer and Toxic during a 23-song performance, Britney Spears wowed Pride-goers as she completed a whopping seven acts as well as an encore.

However, not everything (like Brits onstage patter) went according to plan at Pride this weekend.

Organisers have since had to release a statement following the show – Britneys first in the UK since 2016 – after fans safety was put in jeopardy due to large crowds left stranded when police shut the citys train station and suspended services to London.

The statement read: We were appalled to see that Pride-goers were standing for long periods of time, at the end of the event, while waiting to access Brighton Station.

Peoples safety was put in jeopardy by GTR [Govia Thameslink Railway] and the stations failure to plan for adequate train service.

But GTR hit back at the accusations and claimed it had plans in place to cope with the crowds.

It said: When it became apparent yesterday morning that attendance at Pride was far higher than had been forecast by the organisers, we put on as many extra trains as possible through the afternoon and evening, boosting capacity by 22,500.

We continued to encourage people to leave early to avoid crowding for the last train. We ran 15 extra trains yesterday in addition to the plan agreed with the event organisers to cope with the unprecedented visitor numbers.
