Lets hope we can see Britney on the cover of Forbes Magaziner again in 2016? Always kind to her see the Article as featured on forbes.com below. Enjoy Britney fans.
Superstar residencies in Las Vegas are certainly nothing new, but that doesn’t mean the industry isn’t changing. In fact, the idea of what a musical residency in Sin City has been turned on its head, and the medium is experiencing something of a renaissance, and it’s all thanks to Britney Spears.
Before Britney and her Piece Of Me show came along, a Las Vegas residency was typically reserved for those performers whose time in the spotlight had all but passed. It was not for singers and bands who are still in their prime, but rather it was the perfect next step for the kind of star that the world still respects, but for whom the spotlight had moved on from. There is still room for those legacy acts, but the times they are a changing, and a new audience is headed to Vegas for entirely different shows.
Spears is perhaps not in her “prime”, but she is still recording and releasing music that has a very good chance of performing well sales-wise and on the charts, whereas artists like Elton John or Celine Dion (to provide just two examples) may still create new music, but it’s unlikely that any of their new material will appear on top 40 radio. In the two-plus years since Britney began her Piece Of Me show, she has proven that it won’t stop her from her regular release schedule. In fact, her residency kicked off just weeks after her most recent album, Britney Jean, hit store shelves, and since then she unleashed new single “Pretty Girls”. While none of the songs she’s launched since taking up in Vegas have become big hits (“Girls” barely cracked the top 40, while another single, “Perfume”, missed it entirely), it’s hard to argue that people didn’t pay attention, or that she’s “done”.
Though Britney makes several hundred thousand dollars per night, it is apparently still a moneymaker for the venue, and she just recently renewed for another two years. Now that the experiment has been proven successful, other singers and venues are jumping on board with the trend. Mariah Carey recently kicked off her tenure, while Jennifer Lopez begins hers shortly.
With just one pop star, the connotation connected to having a Las Vegas residency has been completely changed, and now it’s a cool thing that all the biggest names in music want. They are able to see the value in signing on to do them, and they no longer need to worry about what it will do to their image. It will be interesting to see who becomes the next current superstar to head to Las Vegas and set up shop.
Rumor has it based on a video on youtube from comedian Joselyn Hughes that Britney will be the announced Half Time Show entertainment. Joselyn tries to drop hints about the performer without revealing too much. "Our artist is a human being, who is wearing clothes and...," she says in front of the camera before adding, "Oh, I've said way too much. I'm so sorry."
Comment made on the youtube video have conclude that she is talking about Spears when she mentions that Pepsi will announce the performer on December 3. Which of course is the day after Britney's Birthday.
So only a few more days till we find out if its true or not?

If Justin Timberlake & Britney Spears Never Broke Up, The World Would Be So Different
You know how sitcoms always have that one episode that takes place in an alternate universe? I want that to happen in real life, but with just one small adjustment: Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake, still together and living happily ever after. Their breakup was one of the most devastating moments of my teenage years, because who could believe in love if these two couldn't make it work? The future looked bleak, but somehow, we all made it, and today, pop culture doesn't seem any worse for the wear.
Timberlake and his wife, Jessica Biel, seem really happy (and adorable) together, right? And although Spears definitely went on to suffer more romantic roadblocks — namely, her short-lived and widely panned reality show, Chaotic — I have a feeling she wouldn't trade her children for anything. But what if Spears and Timberlake had never broken up?
OK, so it's not like anything that happened between the early 2000s and now would change — in the sense of the bigger world around us, anyway. Things would be very different in the entertainment world, though. I know what you're thinking. Would the universe actually change that much because of one celebrity relationship? I am here to tell you that it would.
In fact, 2015 as we know it? Basically unrecognizable if Spears and Timberlake were still together.
The World Would Have No Idea Who Kevin Federline Is
Spears has called the reality show she shared with Federline, Chaotic, one of her "worst career moves" ever, so a world where Spears had never met Federline would effectively erase Chaotic from existence. Of course, Federline would still exist, but we'd probably be totally oblivious to it... and to his rap career. Instead, maybe Spears and Timberlake would have had their own reality show on E! or something. And it would have been amazing. I'd watch Timberlake watch TV in his boxers and talk about what he and Spears should eat for dinner all day on a loop.
As A Society, We Would Have Witnessed One Of The Best Celeb Weddings Ever
You know how people (OK, me) still talk about Kate Middleton and Prince William's wedding, even though it was years ago? Spears and Timberlake's wedding would have had the same effect, especially because in my imagined version of it, every single member of *NSYNC served as a groomsman.
Jessica Biel Would Have Married Someone Else
Let's not kid ourselves — without Timberlake, she would have found someone. I'm not worried about her.
There Totally Would Have Been A Crossroads 2
UGH, I can't handle the FOMO for something that never even happened.
We'd All Still Believe In Love
At least, until a different celebrity couple broke up.
There Would Be Ramen Noodle-Haired Kids Running Around Everywhere By Now
OK, Spears and Timberlake started dating in 1999, so they would have gotten married by 2005, if they decided to take things slow and stay together a full six years before tying the knot. That means in today's world, they'd be gearing up to celebrate their tenth anniversary, and there would be kids all over the place. Maybe two, maybe three, maybe enough sons for a family boyband. And they would all be gorgeous.
There Would Have Been An Epic Tour
Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake, co-headlining like Beyonce and Jay-Z did on their On The Run tour last year. Could you imagine?!
We'd All Have Gained An Appreciation For All Denim Formalwear
Just kidding. Regardless of Timberlake and Spears' relationship status, everybody knows it was tacky as hell.
Josh "The Fat Jew" Ostrovsky is a well known on Instagram, Josh joined Britney on stage for the "Freakshow" part on Saturday night during her "Piece of Me" concert in vegas.
"Holy s---t you're the man and you dance so amazingly," Spears praised the social media sensation, who waved his arms up and down hailing the 33-year-old singer. "And your hair is f---king crazy."
Britney dressed in the frekshow ensemble, grabbed hold of a purple leash attached to Ostrovky's vest and proceeded to walk the 33-year-old New York native across stage like a dog. After the song, Spears autographed a purple T-shirt for Ostrovsky, who looked starstruck when the singer complimented his bizarre dance moves.
I've still got to say thou my fav was Alex aka @mrKingAlexxx nothing beats watching a True fan so happy and enjoying it so much.

In 2001, our favorite celebrity power couple to ever exist, Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake, made the ultimate commitment not only to each other, but to early-aughts fashion with one simple fabric and a whole lot of confidence: by wearing their now-iconic double denim ensembles to the American Music Awards. It. Was. Everything.
In the 14 years that have passed since the exes' historic style moment took place, many a famous pair (from Katy Perry and Riff Raff to Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively) have tried to recreate the look, but neither Britney or Justin have seemed to notice. (Or at least cared to express their appreciation on social media.) Until now.
Because Spears is a sucker for kids, she took to Instagram to give praise to the efforts of stylist Monica Rose's children—who used Halloween as an opportunity to replicate the sheer jean-ius that once was. And as you can see, they totally nailed it.
Britney said she would donate $1 from each ticket bought for "Britney: Piece of Me" shows on Saturday (24Oct15). And she has done just that she presented organisers at the Nevada Childhood Cancer Foundation with a cheque for the cash collected.
"I'm so happy I've partnered with Nevada Childhood Cancer Foundation, and really enjoy raising awareness for this amazing cause," she wrote on Facebook.com. "Their mission is to improve the quality of life for critically ill children, and they have been doing beautiful things for so many families.
"I love the positive effect these guys are having on the Las Vegas community. It makes my second home a better place. (Thank you to) everyone who has been supportive of this cause."
Britney Spears scored her first Billboard Hot 100 No. 1 in nearly a decade when her single "Womanizer" topped the chart on Oct. 25, 2008. The electro-pop dance track, which Spears, then 26, described as a "girl anthem," skyrocketed from No. 96 to No. 1 in the span of a week – a record jump at the time – aided by a steamy music video that featured scenes of the singer naked in a sauna.
Spears had topped the Hot 100 only once before, with her debut single, "... Baby One More Time," in January 1999.
A version of this article first appeared in the Oct. 31 issue of Billboard magazine.
MBI note: Sing it with us Britney Army.... Womanizer Womanizer... agh relive that circus tour high... Tweet us or comment below via facebook your memories.
Britney shared a mirror pick of herself using her EOS lip balm on Instagram on October 20, with the caption: “Just adding the finishing touches 💋 @eosproducts.”
Britney is using the Pomegranate Raspberry balm, which contains shea butter, vitamin E and jojoba oil to keep lips smooth and moisturized. You can wear the balm on its own for a natural finish, or layer your lip color over top to keep your usual products from drying out your lips.
She’s so lucky, she’s a star, and now she’s the new owner of a glitzy Southern California spread.
It’s been a busy couple of months for pop princess Britney Spears. Not only did she sign on for another two-year residency at the Planet Hollywood Las Vegas Resort & Casino, but the 33-year-old mother of two has also reportedly shelled out $7.4 million for a grand estate in Thousand Oaks ― a city in Ventura County that’s roughly 40 miles from downtown Los Angeles.
Not that Spears is moving far from her current digs — her new Italian-style villa is a nice upgrade from the 8,456-square-foot Hacienda-style spread she bought in 2012 for $6.7 million just a stone’s throw away.
Standing on nearly 21 acres in a gated community, Spears’ new compound consists of a five-bedroom main home spread across a roomy 12,464 square feet. Beyond its breadth, it’s also got some nice high features, like a two-story entry and a great room with 35-foot ceilings.
Other great perks include a fireplace in the great room, an oak-paneled library, media/game room, plus a master suite with another fireplace, two walk-in closets, two bathrooms and a private terrace.
The estate also includes a separate pool house with full kitchen and a temperature-controlled wine cellar with room for 3,500 bottles.
We imagine her children will like the mansion’s outdoor features. Its lawns, gardens and orchard provide plenty of play space, but they’ll also have fun in the infinity-edge pool, or even hitting some balls on its tennis court or on its three-hole golf course.
Nicole Van Parys of Engel & Völkers had this listing.
Ever wondered about how or why that cover of the song came about and the differences in part of the lyrics....
Well Ace Of Base front man Ulf Ekberg haven spoken out recently to fill us all in 8 years later since it leaked 9 years since it was recorded in 2007.
It has remained unreleased because it was a "difficult time" for Spears. Presumably, the song would have been included on Spears's 2007 album Blackout.
Elkberg says the track was done "only in Denmark" and "never finished and didn't end up on her album. It was cool though. She took the choruses, took away the verses and wrote new ones about her mom. It was very strong."
Wonder what else Britney has up her sleeves from that era.?
