NEW YORK (AP) _ Pop princess Britney Spears injured her knee during a video shoot in Queens and was hospitalized for arthroscopic surgery, her record label said.
Spears, 22, was rushed to a hospital after hurting herself late June 8, Jive Records said in a statement. An MRI scan revealed floating cartilage in her knee.
The injury occurred after Spears completed scenes for the video of her new single, “Outrageous,” with rapper Snoop Dogg under the L train line on Roosevelt Avenue. Spears was doing choreography when her knee gave out, Jive said.
“Outrageous” will be featured in the movie “Catwoman,” due out next month.
Spears is scheduled to begin a North American tour June 22 in Hartford, Conn., according to her Web site. Her latest album, In the Zone, was released in November.
Spears was forced to cancel two shows in March because of a knee injury.
