As earlier reported, Jennifer Lopez is making a beeline for Sin City.
The premium diva is believed to be close to finalizing a deal to take up a concert residency in Las Vegas and, according to fresh reports, her pay-packet is set to best that of Britney Spears.
Jennifer is being offered a whopping $350,000 per show at The Axis, Planet Hollywood … the same place Britney is performing.
Britney is making a paltry $310K a show.
But Britney will ultimately score more than JLo because her contract provides she’ll do 96 shows over 2 years. JLo will do 72 shows, 3 times a week for 24 weeks over a 1 or 2 year period — the contract leaves that open.
So, in the end, Britney is guaranteed $29,760,000 for the 2-year run. JLo will be guaranteed $26,383,326.
It’s all chump change compared to Celine Dion, who does 70 shows a year and gets $33,320,000.
One has to love Team J.Lo. They make the right power plays at the right time. They have clearly identified that the commercial charting era of her career isn’t what it once was, as such they’re channelling their efforts into cementing her legacy on the stage of all stages. And with Vegas having a history of hosting legends, La Lopez is – by taking up this gig – wisely placing herself in the same conversation.
Add to that the fact that the “half of the week for half of the year” setup will free her to still sign on for other gigs too and it fast appears she’s onto a winner with this venture.
