Britney Spears finished his first Las Vegas residence permit on New Year’s Eve 2017. Over the last four years, the pop star spent fifty nights a year performing his Piece Of Me show on Planet Hollywood, with countless costumes and two hours dance, body rolls and hair clips, her 24-song performances became a pile in the Las Vegas music scene.
While the Piece Of Me residence lasted only until 2015, the singer – as rocketed to star form with debut single “… Baby One More Time” – signed to perform his biggest hits for another two years . It seemed like a no-brainer for Spears to continue this nostalgia party; the perfect way to reconnect with its fan base, while the bank estimates $ 30-35m per year.
It’s far from the end of the 2000s when the pop icon was about mental problems (who can forget the pictures of her worried and shave her head?). She had two stints in the rehab; faced one year in prison after a blow and run (a Los Angeles court later rejected the charges after paying an unexplained amount to the other party) lost a close family member filed for divorce and was in a nasty and very public custody battle with his ex-husband Kevin Federline.
The public perception of Spears ̵
1; once as a young popdoll appealed by millions of young fans around the world – had shifted and the fall from grace that affected her music, her personal life and her career .
But rather than ignoring the media, she played with her perceptive image of 2007’s Blackout. The disc, a radical deviation from her previous work, was supposed to show a more mature Spears. But the post polarized both critics and fans, and was not helped by a bad advertising campaign. Nevertheless, the album’s reputation among fans has improved over the past decade and Blackout has become something of a cult classic – or as close to a cult classic as an album of one of the world’s biggest pop stars.
After Blackout Spears released two records: Circus and Femme Fatale . While each of them had hits (“Womanizer”, “Radar”), Spears’s popularity had begun to decline. So it made perfect sense to accept Lasers residence permit. It was a perfect way for her to take advantage of her 20-year career, interacting with fans and giving her the structure of regular work, but also free to spend with her family.
