Talk about a year of change! Just two weeks into 2013, Britney Spears has shaken things up by announcing that she will not be returning for another season of The X Factor. Instead, she will focus on her music. She’s currently working on her eighth album with Will.i.am and producer Hit-Boy. But that’s not all, she and fiancé, Jason Trawick have called it quits on their three-year relationship. And now, rumors are swirling that she’s considering a headlining gig in Vegas. Phew! Now that’s a busy schedule! Keep reading for more details.
According to E! News, Spears is in negotiations with Caesars Entertainment. A source close to the pop star said, “She is very interested in a Vegas residency, and is in serious talks with one of the major casino groups.”
“She is the one and only logical all-around star with a full touring production spectacular made for Las Vegas now that hotels and nightclubs are partnering up to land the biggest talents,” an insider told the Las Vegas Sun.
“Britney has one very real proposal on the table, but now that it’s definite she’s leaving The X Factor with a Las Vegas show finally in her future, its likely there will be a bidding war by other properties on and just off the Strip,” the insider added.
“Now [a Vegas gig is] far more likely than ever before. She wants to do it. If all the pieces come together for a mini-residency and several weekend engagements through the year as wanted, it will finally happen.”
Neither Spears nor her reps have confirmed whether rumors of a Vegas show are true, however, last month during a Twitter Q&A, she admitted she has big plans for the New Year. “Lot of work to do in 2013! LETS GO!” She said.
