Since leaving The X Factor last season, rumors have been swirling that Britney Spears was going to take her talents to Las Vegas for her own show. This morning on Good Morning America, Ms. Spears put those rumors to rest with the announcement of her show, Piece of Me, which premieres December 27th at the Planet Hollywood Resort and Casino.
In true super star form, Britney Spears made her big announcement in a big way. Arriving by helicopter, Spears was surprised by more than 1,000 fans who were waiting for her arrival in the desert outside of Vegas, along with Good Morning America’s, Sam Champion.
During her sit down with Champion, Britney got uncomfortable when she was asked how old she was when she had her first kiss. “Oh, my god,” she answered slightly embarrassed. “Maybe 13?” She went on to say that the kiss was with the most famous of her ex-boyfriends, Justin Timberlake.
Britney — no stranger to controversy herself — also touched on the recent controversy surrounding Miley Cyrus and her performance at the MTV Video Music Awards. “I think any time you do a performance that is memorable, you’re going to have criticism. I think she’s doing her thing, being herself. So I give props to her.”
Britney will perform her show, Piece of Me, 48 times per year under her current contract which is good for 2 years. It is rumored that she will be raking in almost $15 million each year. Tickets go on sale this Friday and are reasonably priced from $59-$179. Some packages include VIP treatment and even the opportunity to meet the pop icon in person.
Britney’s other project, her new album is due on December 3, which includes her new hit single Work B**ch.
