Britney Spears spent some rather frightening time up a tree in recent weeks. It was during a performance of her "Britney: Piece Of Me" show at Planet Hollywood Casino Resort in Las Vegas that the "Toxic" singer found herself in an uncomfortable predicament.

The strange event took place about a month ago, but Billboard first reported it a couple of days ago. While singing "Toxic," Britney Spears's harness became entangled in a fake tree used as a prop on stage.

TMZ reports Britney Spears was supposed to soar over her audience when she got hung up in the tree instead.

Fortunately for Britney, a member of her production team unhooked her harness from said tree. She then climbed down a nearby staircase.

This isn't the first time Britney Spears experienced a mishap during her "Piece of Me" residency. A wardrobe mishap in October caused the back of her sheer costume to open up. Her backup dancers alerted her to the problem, but Spears never broke from her choreography--continuing her performance as though nothing was wrong.

It takes a very confident performer to laugh off the mishaps that can happen on a stage set for excitement.

Kudos to Britney Spears for keeping calm while stuck in a tree--even if the tree was fake and she was in it for only a little while.
