Pop beauty Britney Spears learned that fame can't get you everything as she spent 20 minutes trying to hail a cab without success.

The OOPS...I DID IT AGAIN beauty was dressed in a sexy white miniskirt as she and a film crew spent the day shooting in New York but when Britney tried to get the attention of the city's cab drivers nothing seemed to work.

The defeated SLAVE 4 U finally threw in the towel and headed to a nearby hotel for a drink instead.

One onlooker says, "Britney's skirt was so short she was almost showing her bum - but there were no complaints."
