Hello, world—Anthony here bringing you all the pop culture events from the last week that had us talking.
It’s Britney, Bitch! The pop princess made her return to hearts this past week. But let’s be honest. She never left.
Ms. Spears’ new single “Work Bitch” leaked Sunday morning. The leak prompted Spears’ team to move up the iTunes release a full day before scheduled.
The following morning Brit Brit made a huge announcement in the only way Britney can: by flying in a helicopter to the middle of the Nevada desert.
Surrounded by a few hundred screaming fans, Spears announced she would be taking residency at Planet Hollywood in Vegas for the next two years.
Titled “A Piece of Me,” Spears will perform 48 shows per year over the next two years. Britney might want to buy a bigger purse too because her wallet is about to get a whole lot bigger.
It is being reported that she will take home $30 million for the tenure of her residency. It works out to $310,000 per performance.
That’s going to buy our Louisiana princess a lot of Cheetos and UGG boots.
That wasn’t the only news Spears had. She also announced her next album will be released on Dec. 3, the day after she turns 32 years old.
While Britney’s professional life seems to be moving right along, another star’s personal life seems to have crumbled apart.
Both Miley Cryus’ and Liam Hemsworth’s publicists confirmed that the young stars have ended their engagement.
The announcement came after both of them quit following each other on Twitter which, apparently, in 2013 is a big deal.
Allegedly, Liam wasn’t too happy about all that twerking and tonguing Miley has been doing and ended the relationship.
Whatever the reason, he obviously was not too heartbroken because he was spotted with a new girl late Tuesday night at an L.A. nightclub.
Miley probably isn’t too hurt either. Her latest single, “Wrecking Ball,” off her forthcoming album, “Bangerz,” dethroned Katy Perry’s “Roar” to take the number-one spot on Billboard’s Hot 100.
This is Miley’s first song ever to go number one on the Hot 100 chart. I guess all the “hood rat” antics Miley has been displaying is working.
That’s it for Pop Addict this week. Be sure to check back next week to read what some of your favorite celebrities are up to.
