Britney Postpones Rehearsals

Rain storms in Washington DC forced BRITNEY SPEARS to postpone rehearsals for last night's (04SEP03) NFL season-opener concert.

The singer told organisers she was worried that dancers, her crew or even herself would be electrocuted as rain poured down on the stage, and called off late night rehearsals on Wednesday (03SEP03).

And sexy Britney was evidently relieved at the cancellation because she's "scared of storms".

The OOPS!...I DID IT AGAIN star caused controversy last year (02) when she walked offstage in the middle of a storm in Mexico.

However, the concert - which took place before the WASHINGTON REDSKINS and NEW YORK JETS game - still went ahead as planned. By the time she hit the stage outside The White House, the rain had stopped.

The pre-game show, during which Britney performed new single ME AGAINST THE MUSIC, breakthrough hit ...BABY ONE MORE TIME and (I'M A) SLAVE 4 U wearing tiny black gym shorts and a black and white bikini top, was beamed to 200 countries around the world.

The show also featured performances from MARY J BLIGE, ARETHA FRANKLIN and AEROSMITH.
