Work, B*tch: Britney Spears Announces Residency In Las Vegas
Britney Spears seems a little young to be going where pop starts go to die, but sure enough, the 31-year-old singer announced today that she's taking up a residency in Las Vegas for two years.
According to Reuters, Spears will be performing over 50 shows a year at Planet Hollywood Resort and Casino beginning December 27.
The singer made the announcement on "Good Morning America" today, after first being greeted by 1,000 fans holding a massive picture of her as she circled the desert in a helicopter (like you do).
Spears told the morning show that she hopes to really connect with fans during her new show, which is called "Britney: Piece of Me."
"We wanted the environment to be that way so people could come and have a good time and stand up and feel like they're in the show with me," she said. "I love Vegas. The energy here is really, really good."
She also noted that she'll perform a mix of old and new songs. It's not clear how much she'll make for the duration of the show, but Reuters notes that Celine Dion, who did a similar gig, was paid $100 million for three years.
Coincidentally, over the weekend, Spears' new single, "Work, B**ch," somehow leaked. The audio was officially released a few days later, and here it is for your listening pleasure:
