Fans of pop princess Britney Spears whipped out their iPhones on Wednesday night at Axis at Planet Hollywood for her hit residency “Britney: Piece of Me,” and they captured more of her than she planned during a lengthy wardrobe malfunction.

Britney appears at Axis tonight and Saturday before taking a break until her March 22 return. Jennifer Lopez slinks in Wednesday through Feb. 25 with her hit residency “All I Have.”
