One Ms. Britney Jean Spears will join the legendary ladies who have called Las Vegas home such as Cher, Céline Dion and Liberace before her. The world renowned slave 4 u confirmed her Las Vegas residency this morning during an appearance on Good Morning America, leading old Jews and gays of every age gasping with delight.
After months of speculation, Spears has announced that she will be the resident diva in charge at the Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino, performing 50 shows a year for two years. Meanwhile, Céline Dion is belting her heart, which is still going on at Caesar’s Palace, for $33 million a year, but that French Canadian chanteuse has put in time and work, bitch, for those dollars.
Tickets for Brit Brit’s show, called Piece of Me — ’cause we all want it — are already on sale, so get ‘em while you can. And speaking of getting it, can we talk about this remix of Britney’s “Work, Bitch” with the original call to labor, RuPaul’s “Supermodel (You Betta Work)”? Gay culture exploited once again, perhaps, but honestly, RuPaul can learn a thing or two from tucking from Ms. Spears.
Here’s hoping Ru descends from the ceiling à la Miss Rachel Tension from To Wong Foo during this number in Vegas and the two lip-synch for their lives while a cadre of backup dancers attempt to disguise the fact that they’re barely even trying to move. You betta work, bitch:
