Jennifer Lopez in Talks for Las Vegas Residency
Jennifer Lopez is bringing her booty to Las Vegas. The pop megastar is reportedly nearing a multi-million-dollar deal for her first headliner residency.
According to TMZ, who obtained the contract, J.Lo is being offered $350,000 per show to perform at The Axis at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino.
The venue is home to Britney Spears and her “Piece of Me” residency. J.Lo will reportedly make more per show than Spears, who earns $310,000.
J.Lo’s contract calls for 72 shows, three times a week for 24 weeks over a one- or two-year period, which will guarantee her $26,383,326. Spears has signed on to do 96 shows over two years, earning her $29,760,000.
By comparison, Celine Dion does 70 shows a year at Caesars Palace and gets $33,320,000.
The “I Luh Ya Papi” singer has already been soaking up the scene. She and her manager Benny Medina were spotted at Shania Twain’s show at Caesars Palace on Friday, reports the Las Vegas Review-Journal.
Her 10th album A.K.A. was released in June and she will return as a judge for the 14th season of “American Idol,” premiering January 14 on Fox.
