Like it was predicted last week, this has so far been Britney Spears’ week even though it looked like it might have been doomed when some leakers got their hands on a low quality version of her new single, “Work Bitch.” But a little leakage didn’t kill anyone, if anything it made her loyal fans even more excited for the new track that was officially released through iHeartRadio’s many stations Sunday afternoon.
This morning during a broadcast of Good Morning America, the 31-year-old pop star announced another round of big news for her fans; the residency that had been speculated for months, had been confirmed.
This morning, Spears arrived in the Mojave Desert, joined by hundreds of school girls via a helicopter to announce her new career move. The “Stronger” star announced that she will be heading to Las Vegas for a two-year residency at the Planet Hollywood with an expected 50 shows each year. In the end, she is estimated to make about $15 million per year for the shows.
“I’m going to definitely do the greatest hits but I’m going to have to put some of my new material in it to just keep it fresh,” Spears said while being interviewed on Good Morning America.
The new show will be called, “Piece of Me” which for those of you not familiar with the pop star’s catalog is actually the name of one of her songs from 2007’s Blackout. Tickets for Britney: Piece of Me go on sale September 20 and prices range from $59 to $179.
But wait, there a little bit of other information; her eight studio album which still does not have an official title (at least to the public) is set to be released on December 3.
How about that?
