Is Jennifer Lopez Considering A Las Vegas Residency? (Update: Yes!)
Britney Spears, Shania Twain and Celine Dion have been dazzling audiences for months (and years!) now in Las Vegas. Will Jennifer Lopez soon be following suit?
It’s purely speculation at this point, but the “Booty” pop diva was spotted living it up at Brit Brit’s Piece Of Me show and Shania’s showcase at Caesars Palace in Vegas over the weekend, which she attended alongside her manager Benny Medina, according to the Las Vegas Review-Journal. But was the trip purely for pleasure, or was there some business at hand behind-the-scenes?
A residency could just be a perfect match for the A.K.A. pop veteran, considering her endless run of hit singles and fiercely loyal fanbase. And, considering the fact that Celine and Shania are due to leave town soon, there are some major diva-sized stilettos to be filled — Louboutins, perhaps.
Update: Where there’s smoke, there’s fire: According to a new report from TMZ this morning, Jenny From The Block was indeed in Las Vegas to secure a residency deal, which is being finalized right now — and if the money’s right, she’ll be performing right where Britney’s show is happening at Planet Hollywood!
“Jennifer Lopez is in the final stages of making a deal to perform in Vegas … and according to the contract — obtained by TMZ — she’ll rake in more per show than Britney Spears. Jennifer is being offered a whopping $350,000 per show at The Axis, Planet Hollywood … the same place Britney is performing. Britney is making a paltry $310K a show. But Britney will ultimately score more than JLo because her contract provides she’ll do 96 shows over 2 years. JLo will do 72shows, 3 times a week for 24 weeks over a 1 or 2 year period — the contract leaves that open.”
Assuming the deal does goes through, will you be heading to Vegas to see La Lopez in action? Sound off in the comments below.
