Brit Toasted by Younger Pop Tart?

As usual, Britney Spears was going to bail on her music video shoot -- until her record label threatened to use the dancers and location for a younger, rising starlet.

Page Six reports that the BritBrit was supposed to show up at Social Hollywood to shoot the video for "Pieces of Me," but was, of course, hours late. (TMZ was watching and waiting that day.) When it looked like Spears was going to be a no-show, Jive decided to refit the set for another pop act, Samantha Jade, and her single "Eyes on Me."

When Britney heard what was going on, says the Post, she finally showed up -- twelve hours late.

"High School Musical's" Ashley Gets an Ashlee

She's recuperating at home in L.A. and says she hopes it's "the only time I ever have to go through something like this."
