Britney Spears graces the cover of this month’s Vegas Player magazine and reveals in the interview what it’s like touring versus staying put in Vegas, staying in shape and the glare of fame.
Check out some highlights below:
Anticipating hits ranging from “Toxic” to “Circus,” Britney Spears fans are eagerly awaiting her smash return to the stage. Beginning Dec. 27 at Planet Hollywood Resort, she’ll perform 21 or so of her greatest hits in the splashy production show, “Britney: Piece of Me.”
Though never disappointing with shock and awe, Spears has been coy about divulging any show details since she announced the deal on Sept. 17 with a viral stunt in the Vegas desert.
Now with about six weeks until showtime, Spears is getting personal in a brand-new cover story for “Vegas Player” magazine, Caesars Entertainment’s in-room publication. In the revealing interview, (complete with sizzling new pictures) she looks back on her two-decade career and talks influences, prepping for Las Vegas and the harsh spotlight of being the most photographed woman in the world. But more than anything, Spears can’t wait to hit us one more time with her glittering comeback. “I’m really excited,” she says. “‘Piece of Me’ is a labor of love. I can’t wait to perform it.”
On the appeal of a Vegas show
“When you tour, it’s so hard on the body,” she says. “I look back and I don’t know how I did it. Being in one place is cool. It’s a more stable environment”—not only for her but for her two sons, Sean Preston, 8, and Jayden, 7, who will also be making the trips. “Las Vegas is a fun place,” she adds. “There is so much going on. The energy here is incredible. You feel it walking through the casino. Everybody is here to have a good time.”
Getting to “work” (bitch)
“I have not been this sore in my entire life,” she confesses. “When I started working out, I was sore for like, three days. I could hardly move. I’m really challenging myself with the choreography…Whenever I do a show, I’m really keen on making it a show. I love to dance and perform. Because it’s Vegas, I want to do something different. This is the perfect place to bring it to the next level.”
