Pop princess Britney Spears has just signed a cool contract for two year’s worth of gigs at the Planet Hollywood Resort in Las Vegas. Reportedly, Spears will receive a whopping $310,000 per show! Yes, you read that correctly: $310,000 PER SHOW. Can you imagine making that kind of money? We can’t either, but you could try to come out on top with this Paddy Power Bingo site. It won’t get you Britney’s kind of money, but you could make some nice change and have fun!
According to TMZ, Spears’ contract is for 48 shows per year for her residency in Sin City. It all comes out to roughly $14.8 million per year. Basically, if the Planet Hollywood Resort sells out their arena, they would receive $500,000.
Negotiations for the pop singer’s residency hit fever pitch when she announced that she was leaving The X Factor. There was a bit of a bidding war, but apparently $310,000 per show was Spears’ number and she took the deal.
With regard to her residency, Spears said, “The performances won’t be simple. They’ll be a massive party from start to finish. And to pull this off, I have to be in top condition and running at full speed.”
If you’re curious how Britney Spears’ contract measures to that of the reigning queen of Las Vegas, Celine Dion, then the answer is that she does come close. Dion rakes in $475,000 per concert and does roughly 70 shows per year. That’s a lot to measure up to, even for us. We’re going to get started playing bingo online to try and catch up…but even if we can’t, it’s going to be a blast.
Simon Cowell has opened up about the reasons behind Britney Spears’ departure from The X Factor, revealing the singer found her job as a judge “very uncomfortable”.
Spears joined the panel of the hit talent competition, but quit after just one season on screen. Cowell has now revealed he made a mistake hiring the singer, because she hated interacting with contestants and voicing her opinion on the acts.
In a taped interview with Ellen DeGeneres, he revealed, ”I didn’t realize that (she was not good at talking)! I kind of booked someone who couldn’t talk, which is a bit of a problem when you want someone to judge… She wasn’t comfortable being negative, she didn’t like it when the contestants spoke back to her, so she was just uncomfortable. I liked her. So we decided to change it this year.”
Cowell also admits he became obsessed with chasing star names for the judging panel in a bid to keep up with the show’s competitors, American Idol and The Voice.
He added, “There was a time I think everyone was trying to up themselves in terms of who could find the biggest known star to be on a panel. And in terms of a pop singer? Jennifer Lopez and the other one on The Voice… I can’t remember. Blondie. Christina (Aguilera). And we said, ‘We’ll take Britney’. She was fine, but I think she found it very uncomfortable.”

Pop princess Britney Spears has given us all a little bit of insight into her upcoming album. She said that basically the album isn’t anything that fans would expect from her this time around.
She took to her official Twitter account to say, “Really excited 2 give u a taste of my new album…can’t wait 2 share what I’ve been working on. Going to be my most personal album ever :)”.
The album is reportedly set for release by the end of the year and is being executive produced by will.i.am.
Last month, she was speaking with Ryan Seacrest about her eighth studio album. She revealed, “It’s definitely at the beginning stages right now. But I want to definitely take this album and have a new approach with it and make it a little different than anything I’ve ever done.”
Pop princess Britney Spears says that she uses yoga to battle her issues with anxiety.
She has adopted a new workout plan to get into super fit shape before her rumored residency in Las Vegas, Nevada. She said that she has found her yoga classes to be quite therapeutic.
In a new interview with Ryan Seacrest, she said, “I love my yoga! I’m doing a lot of yoga right now. It’s like my go-to between all my anxiety and everything.”
She went on to say, “The first time I did yoga I didn’t like it at all. I think the key is finding a good teacher, someone you kind of connect with and if you do find that person then it doesn’t feel like you’re bored or impatient because I’ve been in tons of classes where I’m so over it and I can’t deal and want it to end, but I think if you find the right instructor, it does wonders for your body.”

Pop princess Britney Spears hasn’t been dating her boyfriend David Lucado for that long of a time, but rumors are popping up that she is already ready to tie him down and have a baby with him.
A source revealed, “She refuses to fall into that trap again with her new guy. Britney told David she wants a firm commitment that he wants to marry her and give her a child – or get out of her life for good.”
The spy went on to say, “To Britney’s surprise, David presented her with a modest gold ring to prove he’s totally committed to her. David is planning a more formal engagement with Britney later this year, but he wanted to give her something now to show her he’s in this relationship for the long haul.”
Awww how sweet. Perhaps she will eventually get that daughter that she wants so badly.
