Britney Spears has Vegas stage concerns

Oct 2 2013, 5:30am CDT | by Bang Showbiz

Britney Spears is unhappy with the stage set for her Las Vegas residency.

The 'Toxic' hitmaker will embark on a two-year show, 'Britney Spears: Piece of Me' at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino on December 27, and she is concerned that her performance will take place in the same room that previously housed 'Peepshow' - a burlesque show which Holly Madison, Mel B and Coc Austin previously performed in - as it is small and has no room for pyrotechnics.

A source said: "When Celine Dion came to Vegas, they built her the Colosseum at Caesars Palace, and that was a production just for her

"When Britney was announced, they barely touched the stage. She'll be on the same stage as Holly was with a pole. Producers think Britney can make do with two balloons and a feather boa."

It is said to be of particular concern for the 31-year-old star as she planned to lip-synch her songs and that would become more obvious without the spectacular stage settings she is used to.

The source added to the New York Daily News newspaper: "It's like Britney unplugged, and Britney literally cannot be unplugged."

In order to hide her plans to mime, staff at the venue were reportedly given a 'cheat sheet' of stock answers if anyone asked about the performance.

The source explained: "Everyone connected with this production is freaking out because there is so much at stake.

"The purpose of the cheat sheet was so staff could be economical with the truth if fans were to question them about Britney lip-synching."

Despite Britney's concerns, the show's director, Baz Halpin - who has previously worked on tours for Katy Perry, Pink and Taylor Swift - said "the level of detail in this show is ridiculous".

A spokesperson for Britney denied she has any issue and insisted she is "very happy" with the "groundbreaking" set.

They added: "Britney is very happy with the stage and the venue.

"It is actually bigger than previous stages she has performed on. The venue will be groundbreaking."

Lindsay Lohan claims she ‘rolled a body bag for Whitney Houston’ at the morgue

Sep 15 2014 8:20am CDT | Source: Celebitchy.com

The Telegraph has a rather epic interview with Lindsay Lohan – go here to read the full thing. I think it probably started out as just a standard what-is-this-actress-up-to piece (ahead of her turn in Speed-the-Plow), but at some point, it morphs into Lindsay Lohan: Portrait of a Cracked-Out Mess. Subtitle: “It’s Never Lindsay’s Fault. Ever.” The Telegraph goes through LL’s filmography and tries to pinpoint when everything went wrong for her. By the end of the piece, The Telegraph is outr ...

First Listen: Mapei, 'Hey Hey'

Sep 14 2014 10:03pm CDT | Source: WNYC Music

Pop music is constructed with many of the same base directives as candy, which is why the two are so often compared. Above all, both must feel good to consume, and both must make us want more. Pop meets basic human desires, and thus often gets dismissed as basic itself. It's true that the consumption of good pop is, by design, easy. But its creation is as exacting an art as tempering chocolate wit ...

Britney Spears’ lawyers sent a threatening letter to Cali Lee, the porn star her ex-boyfriend David Lucado cheated on her with because he sometimes makes good decisions. Spears’ team is demanding Lee adhere to Lucado’s confidentiality agreement, which is a thing two people sign when they are in love and one of them is poor and the other is famous and not poor.
