Jennifer Lopez is close to signing a very lucrative deal in order to perform in a Las Vegas residency similar to the likes of Britney Spears. In fact, Jennifer’s residency would eclipse Britney’s earnings but a great margin. TMZ reports:
Jennifer Lopez is in the final stages of making a deal to perform in Vegas … and according to the contract — obtained by TMZ — she’ll rake in more per show than Britney Spears. Jennifer is being offered a whopping $350,000 per show at The Axis, Planet Hollywood … the same place Britney is performing.
Britney is making a paltry $310K a show. But Britney will ultimately score more than JLo because her contract provides she’ll do 96 shows over 2 years. JLo will do 72 shows, 3 times a week for 24 weeks over a 1 or 2 year period — the contract leaves that open.
So, in the end, Britney is guaranteed $29,760,000 for the 2-year run. JLo will be guaranteed $26,383,326.
It’s funny that they are both really good entertainers who aren’t really that great with their singing talents. Would you pay exorbitant prices in order to see either one of them take the stage and lip-sync to their hit songs? Most would likely say no. Sure, they are entertaining, but wouldn’t you feel cheated if they didn’t actually sing?
Britney’s residency was said to be up in 2015, but she has since renewed for two more years. The singer confirmed the extension in September 2014. Have you seen her show? If so, what did you think?
