Britney Spears extends her Vegas show for two years

‘I’m going to be in Vegas for two more years!’ Ecstatic Britney Spears announces she’s extending her Pieces Of Me residency.

Britney Spears confirmed a two-year extension of her Vegas show, “Britney: Piece of Me,” at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino. The 33-year-old singer announced her ‘big news’ on Wednesday night during her performance at the Planet Hollywood Axis Theatre, telling her delighted fans she is ‘not ready’ to leave Sin City just yet. ‘Usually, I get you guys to help me count to three, but tonight I want you to help me count to two because I’m going to be in Vegas for two more years!’ Speaking to E! about her decision to stay in Las Vegas, the singer revealed she wasn’t ready to say goodbye to the show and her crew, and couldn’t ‘imagine saying goodbye’ just yet. ‘I definitely have some major changes planned. We really should have seen this coming, considering how a Vegas residency seems to be like catnip to all of our favorite stars, when we want to see them and gamble away all of our money at the same time. Miz Spears split from her boyfriend Charlie Ebersol earlier this summer and she hasn’t been afraid to vent her frustrations with men to say the least. Spears was the first contemporary pop artist to orchestrate a major, yearslong Vegas residency, following ones from music stalwarts Elton John and Celine Dion.

Of course, rumors have already been flying that this would happen since Axis Theatre offered Spears $12 million to extend her 90 minute show (which she does 50 of per year), but, now that Spears has formally accepted, I can’t help but worry what this means for her upcoming album. However, 50 shows per year just seems like a lot to add to Spears’ schedule, between taking care of her children, working on her next album, and any other interviews and promotions that she might want to do in this upcoming two year period. Sure, it’s a huge paycheck for Spears — certainly more money than I’ll ever see in my entire life — but she might need one heck of a break afterward before she’s up to doing any touring or album work.

Spears has been writing new music for the as yet untitled album since Summer 2014, and she has since only released one single, “Pretty Girls.” The song was not exactly the smash hit that Iggy Azalea had been hoping it would be. Worry not, Spears fans, this extended residency news is definitely something we should be happy about, rather than crying over the addition of another stumbling block between us and getting Spears’ next album in our hands.
