Britney Injures Knee

Pop singer expected to be sidelined at least six weeks

Britney Spears underwent arthroscopic surgery after injuring her knee late last night while filming a video for the song "Outrageous" in Queens, New York. According to Jive Records, the singer had just completed shooting a scene with Snoop Dogg and was performing dance moves under the L Train on Roosevelt Avenue when the injury occurred. She was then rushed to an area hospital, where an MRI scan revealed floating cartilage in the knee.

Similar injuries have long plagued Spears, who had to postpone her "Sometimes" video shoot after twisting her knee back in 1999. In March of this year, she was forced to cancel two concerts because of her knee.

"Outrageous" is the fourth single from Spears' multi-platinum In the Zone CD. Her Onyx Hotel tour is scheduled to return to the U.S. June 22nd in Hartford, Connecticut. Contrary to our previous report, there is no word yet as to how the injury will affect Spears' tour plans.
