Britney Spears’ multi-year residency at Planet Hollywood may have ended on New Year’s Eve, but the singer has reportedly signed a new deal on the strip.
Several sources tell Us Weekly that the 36-year-old inked a deal to perform at Las Vegas’ Park Theater — the same venue where Lady Gaga will begin her 74-date residency in December.

Notes a source, “They are really trying to compete with some of the more established venues in Las Vegas.”)
The “Hold It Against Me” singer especially digs that the steady job affords her plenty of time with her sons Preston, 12, and Jayden, 11. (Their dad is her ex-husband Kevin Federline.) “The schedule was perfect for her and her kids,” says the source, “so why not continue?”
That’s not to say it was easy bidding farewell to Planet Hollywood. Another insider says the Grammy winner’s New Year’s Eve show “was emotional.” In her final, pre-show meet and greet, the star mingled with fans, posed for photos and tearfully made a toast to one of her biggest fans, “who has supported her for nearly two decades,” says the insider. “There wasn’t a dry eye in the house.”
We’ll say this — Britney may not move much these days, but she’s definitely out here working!
