Britney Spears' Vegas spectacular is really happening, and the announcement is shaping up to be an extravaganza worthy of the "Work Bitch" singer.

The show, entitled Britney, Piece Of Me, will blend her classics and new hits into one action-packed show, she confirmed on ABC's Good Morning America.

It will feel as much like Broadway as a concert. She says:

"We wanted the environment to be that way so people could come and have a good time and stand up and feel like they’re in the show with me."

"I love Vegas. The energy here is really, really good."

With 1,350 participants bused from Las Vegas to a remote location in the Mojave Desert, Britney Spears arrived via helicopter to celebrate the news.

The cost of the announcement alone was $100,000, but given what she'll be raking in - $30 million over two years - we're guessing her bosses can afford it.

Spears will be performing at Planet Hollywood in Sin City 48 times per year for the next two years at over $300,000 per show, beginning this December.

Talk about taking her own advice and going to work, bitch.

Britney Spears is in the mood to work, bitch ... and earn a ridiculous $310,000 per show for her efforts at Planet Hollywood, according to a new report.

A two-year contract calls for 48 shows a year at the Las Vegas destination, meaning Britney will make nearly $30 million over 96 concerts there. Huge.

Celine Dion actually earns and performs more, at 70 shows a year and $476,000 a show. Brit (with David Lucado, above) gets more time off, though.

Interestingly, projected sales per show are $508,514, meaning Britney's cut is around 60 percent before PH even makes a penny. Not a bad setup.

Producers are shooting for a "cool, hip club-like show," nothing like the stereoptypical Vegas shows that precede it (Dion's included), starting in December.

Britney Spears' new single "Work Bitch" has leaked a day early, but is becoming pretty standard these days, as Lady Gaga and Katy Perry can attest.

Whomever is responsible for the leaks may want to watch his or her back from angry artists on the warpath, but that being said, here's your first listen ...

There you go. The key takeaways from "Work Bitch" are:

  • She says the word "bitch" maybe like 100 times.
  • She talks in that weird accent for the duration.
  • It's actually not terrible!

At least based on what you'd expect from a Britney Spears single these days, this is upbeat, fun pop music on par with most of her younger contemporaries.

She is most definitely ready to work, bitch. Like her "Scream & Shout" collaboration with will.i.am, the British accent thing is strange, but it's catchy, no?

With just four days to go before Britney Spears releases her new single, "Work Bitch," the pop superstar has revealed the song's cover artwork on Twitter.

The art shows Britn dolled up in a showgirl-esque getup, leaning on a dressing room vanity as a "Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas" sign sits on the table.

It's another hint that the star plans to announce a Vegas residency next Tuesday when the Britney Spears countdown clock on her website runs out.

Along with the photo, Spears tweeted, "4 days people! Go call the Po-Lice! Go call the Governor! #WorkB." Presumably, these are lyrics to the song.

"Work Bitch" will first be released next Monday on iHeartRadio at 6 p.m. EST. Check out some sexy shots she's Tweeted to promote it after the jump:

Britney Spears has been working up a major sweat in preparation for her latest music video and residency in Las Vegas, and safe to say it's paying off.

The 31-year-old singer posted a snapshot of herself looking particularly svelte and hot - in more ways than one - in a turquoise bikini on her Instagram account.

"Gonna get my tan on in the desert in between shots on the #WorkB***h set today,' she wrote. "It's HOT out here people!!!! #desert #heatwave #WorkB****hDay2."

If you missed it, her new single will be titled, "Work Bitch."

The star paired her brightly-colored two piece with a pair of glittering platform heels for the picture and appeared to be inside some kind of trailer.

Britney Spears also tweeted a sexy still from her video shoot which featured her sporting a yellow and black lacy bra set and elbow length leather gloves:

"All Eyes On Me," teases Britney Spears' newly unveiled countdown clock.

But what are we waiting until the morning of September 17 for exactly?

  • Britney Spears Countdown Clock
  • Britney Spears Dancing GIF

A countdown timer has appeared on the star's website, ticking off the days, hours and seconds until 9:30 a.m. on that date, when who knows what will happen.

The GIF next to it? That has nothing to do with this story. It's just hot.

The words "All Eyes On Me" caption the timer, provoking speculation that this could be the name of a new song or her eighth studio album.

Britney Spears made almost $14 million last year, a new report indicates, but her spending habits may be more in line with the common person than you think.

The singer spent nearly $7 million, and in some interesting places.

Documents containing her spending habits, as part of her conservatorship, show the pop star is a part-time discount shopper just like the rest of us.

She spent upwards of $65 at places like 99 Cents Plus and Pay 99 Cents or Less, and loves her some Subway, IHOP, McDonald's, Starbucks and In-N-Out Burger.

She's not all thrifty, however.

Adrienne Bailon had some harsh words for Britney Spears yesterday on her talk show The Real, saying that the pop singer cannot even hold a conversation.

Bailon noted that the star had the "ultimate meltdown," then went on to recall her stint as a backstage host on The X Factor and her interaction with Spears:

"I'm not going to lie to you, guys... she can't hold a conversation. They had someone who feeds her what she is supposed to say. Like, she can't hold a conversation."

Her co-hosts were sympathetic to Spears' plight, however.

Britney Spears certainly knows how to dress for the occasion.

The 31-year-old pop star wore a very tight, very short gray and black dress to church Sunday, pairing the piece with a pair of over-the-knee black boots.

Not sure about the rest of the congregation, but her boyfriend David Lucado, who accompanied the pop legend to the weekend service, had to like it ...

Some people will no doubt criticize Spears' choice of outfit.

Miley Cyrus, for her part, is not one of those people.

Brit's fellow Disney alum recently said the mother of two is "that one person in my life who gets it." Miles has been faith-shamed herself in the past, so we believe it.

What do you think of Brit's ensemble? Tell us!
