While we STILL wait to hear officially whether or not Britney Spears will join the hosting panel of the forthcoming season of The X Factor, a new report is out today that claims that our dear Britney is in talks with the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, NV to become their headlining act in Sin City. It appears that Britney is interested in performing on a regular basis in LV … if the price is right. Um, yeah, that sounds pretty freaking fantastic to me.
Britney Spears’ first multiweek deal as a Las Vegas resident headliner is being discussed with the Hard Rock Hotel. Vegas Confidential has learned Hard Rock President and Chief Operating Officer Paul Pusateri and Spears’ manager, Larry Rudolph, have been talking. Spears, who has sold more than 100 million albums worldwide, would perform at The Joint, the Hard Rock’s concert venue that can accommodate 4,000. “The queen of pop will be the queen of the Hard Rock if all goes according to plan,” a source close to the talks said … The Hard Rock’s new management team wants to change the fan experience by offering more accessibility to celebrities. “People will be able to rub shoulders with the celebs. Gone are the days of hiding them behind velvet ropes,” the source added. “You’ll be able to gamble with DJ Pauly D, have dinner with Britney and have drinks with Mötley Crüe.” Now 30, Spears continues to be a force in pop music. Last year, her seventh studio album, “Femme Fatale,” was her first to yield three top 10 singles in the United States. She ranks among Twitter’s most popular personalities with nearly 16 million followers. According to reports, Spears is close to a deal that would earn her $15 million as a judge on Simon Cowell’s “The X Factor.”
While I LOVE the idea of a regular Britney Spears residency so close to me, I can’t see how Britney can perform in LV and appear on The X Factor weekly. I’m sure it can be done, I just don’t see it happening tho. Perhaps this Las Vegas thing is now making the rounds because Britney is in final, final negotiations to judge The X Factor? Maybe this LV thing is a back-up plan? Whatever the case may be, I’m very excited that things are lookin’ so well for Britney these days. She is very much in demand and I’m certain that whatever her next venture will be, it will be a huge success. Honestly, if I had to pick … I don’t know which scenario I’d prefer. Yes, I’d love to be able to see Britney Spears in concert on a regular basis. Then again, I would also love to see her on TV twice a week. I think my heart is leaning toward the X Factor deal but if she ends up with a LV residency instead, I don’t think I’d be too mad. What do y’all think? Would you travel to Las Vegas, NV to see Britney live? If you could pick, which would YOU prefer … The X Factor or Las Vegas?
