Britney Spears Will Make Bank In Vegas For 2 More Years

Britney Spears announced Wednesday she is extending her stay in Las Vegas and keeping her "Piece of Me" show going.

"OK, I have some big news tonight. Usually I get you guys to help me count to three, but tonight, I want you to help me count to two because I'm going to be in Vegas for two more years!" exclaimed Britney Spears.

Then for two more years, you better work, Britney.

Wednesday night, Britney Spears dispelled rumors that she may ditch the Vegas strip and leave her "Britney: Piece of Me" show. (Video via RCA Records / Britney Spears)

Instead, the pop princess is clocking in overtime — revamping her set list, designing new costumes and dreaming up new props for her Planet Hollywood-based performance.

And with all that overtime, we wonder if Spears will get paid time and a half.

Spears is currently earning around $475,000 a show, making her one of the top earners with a Vegas residency.

She's possibly rivaled by Mariah Carey, whose super-secret Caesar's Palace salary is rumored to be higher than any note you'd hear in the song "Emotions." (Video via Columbia Records / Mariah Carey)

And even though we all miss python-draped Britney from the 2001 VMAs, earnings-wise, Spears' current salary is in the same ballpark as it was then, proving our homegirl's still got that spark that keeps the people paying. (Video via RCA Records / Britney Spears)

Tickets for Spears' added shows will go on sale Sept. 14. Here's to two more years of live, non-auto-tuned singing from the sound of a generation.
