Las Vegas is soon to be R&B diva central!

As if it’s not enough being home to some of pop’s top crop of stars, from  Celine Dion and Shania Twain to Britney Spears and Elton John, now it seems more leading ladies are looking to get in on the action.

Weeks before diva Mariah Carey officially announced her relocation to “Sin City” for an extensive residency, her nemesis Jennifer Lopez, “The Boss” Miss Diana Ross, Queens of Pop Madonna and Janet Jackson, and more were rumored to at least be considering a sashay  down to the Strip.

Now, if newly surfaced reports are to be believed, some of those rumors have become fact.  Read more below:

Source:

 “…singer Diana Ross has inked April dates for the first nine performances of her new mini-residency contract at the Venetian. Soon to follow in this new entertainment lineup set for the former “Phantom — The Las Vegas Spectacular” theater will be Janet Jackson, Lionel Richie and Ricky Martin…”

Titled “The Essential Diana Ross: Some Memories Never Fade,” tickets for Diana’s return to Vegas go on sale Friday for three weekends of shows April 1, 3-4, 7-8, 10-11, 15 and 17-18.

Now, we await the official word of Janet’s extended visit to Vegas!

    Rumors, but if true I am in for the Legendary stage Queen, Damita Jo, and also for the Legend Ms. Ross!!!

    Who Hoo!!!

  2. TheElusiveLamb January 26, 2015

    Oh Jesus, please let this be true! I’ve always wanted to witness the greatness that is Diana Ross live. I envy anyone who has seen her. As for Janet, I definitely would go to that. I would even see JLO if she did one. As fori Madonna, the top female touring act of all time needs to stay far from Vegas. She is way too established, but I would understand why if she did it. This is great news for them all. I’m just going to keep hoping that Toni Braxton does one too. (Just as long as she doesn’t repeat the last time. It saddened me.)

    • smh January 26, 2015

      Madonna sucks live.

      • TheElusiveLamb January 26, 2015

        IDK what you’re reading, because you don’t see “Madonna is a good/great performer,” in my comment. She is the top female touring act in music history; that was my point sir. 🙂

      • ziyah February 3, 2015

        True

    • Famousmyway January 26, 2015

      The title of ‘top female touring act’ IS NOT held by Madonna! Tina Turner holds that title! Infact, she is the ‘top solo touring act’, period! #Fact

      • TheElusiveLamb January 26, 2015

        Tina doesn’t even have $200 million grossing tours, so how is she in the top when Madonna has two $450+ million tours?

      • Yaaaaaasss January 26, 2015

        Scalp her, my fellow Lamb!

      • Tyler January 26, 2015

        Tinas the best touring act because she grossed 200+ million with less TOUR DATES.

    • Famousmyway January 26, 2015

      Wait, what? Tina doesn’t have 200 million grossing tours? Check your facts again! Her last tour which she had in 2008 generated over $212,000,000.00 alone! And that year she did less than half shows than the number one act.

      • JANET JACK ME January 26, 2015

        Janet has grossed over 438 Milli from touring and over 250 Milli in album sales

      • TheElusiveLamb January 26, 2015

        Ok so I guess the updated figure of $145.65 million is wrong… 🙁

    • Famousmyway January 26, 2015

      If you are getting your information from Wikipedia, absolutely! My information came straight from billboard. It has been known for years that Tina is a concert act. She doesn’t really sell a lot of albums but she sells concert tickets. The only acts to out perform her are The Rolling Stone, U2 and maybe The Beatles! It is what it is! #Facts

      • Famousmyway January 26, 2015

        In 1998 she had the number 1 grossing tour, ‘Wildest Dreams’. In 2000, she was number two, ‘Live: One last time’, only behind N’Sync and that was become they did more shows than her. Y’all really need to fact check before y’all post stuff!

      • JOHNVIDAL January 27, 2015

        I don´t even care if she is #1 or not numbers wise. She is like the realest performer EVER. That´s what I care about. She is a force of nature, unique and original. Go see her concert in Barcelona in 1990 at 50 years old on youtube. That´s a beast. I dare anyone to give me the name of a better performer nowadays. You don´t have to posses the best voice or the best dancing skills, you just need to be in charge of your audience and slay.

  3. FutureCiara January 26, 2015

    JANET!!!!!!!!!!!!

    HERE I COME SIN CITY!!!!

    • Yaaaaaasss January 26, 2015

      And please take down some notes for your queen Ciara. That girls needs all the help in the world to become a relevant talent again.

      • FAF January 26, 2015

        ^ well ur talking about her thats a good start 🙂

        she doesn’t have to tour she’s sold 5mil us with 5 albums where “LEGENDS” and “ICONS” are barely scraping 10mil after 6 and 7 😆

      • Yaaaaaasss January 26, 2015

        @FAF Heara sold ONLY five million with five albums in ten years??? Stop shading yourself by posting up her stats when her former contemporaries pulled five million off one album. That was thotful for you to defend your queen, sis.

      • FAF January 26, 2015

        ^and ur fave just hit 10mil after nearly double the amount of singles and publicity. so its about even, I reckon? 😆 😆 😆 😆

        Cici got that mind in a TIZZY && I’m lovin it! pick ya jaw up , F***! COME GET IT!

      • Yaaaaaasss January 26, 2015

        @FAF So you’re still admitting Ciara’s failures as you try to come for me without ticket stub from Ciara’s headlining arena tour. Now pick up your jaw and false teeth off the floor, sis.

  4. FutureCiara January 26, 2015

    THEE LEGENDARY VEGAS SLAY IS UPON US!!!!!!!

  5. old school January 26, 2015

    Word on the street is that Janet is supposed to be dropping a new album called Unbreakable and supposed to do a tour in the summer.

  6. Brittany Wolcott January 26, 2015

    At least they can perform unlike Mariah. Ciara should be next.

    • OMG Logic!!! January 26, 2015

      Who?

      • FAF January 26, 2015

        I’m sorry ur fave copies her so hard & u still don’t think

        maybe when the copyright infringement ass B**** gets her OWN swag she can be considered an icon of her OWN caliber beyond twitter and the social hemisphere

        now pick up ur tracks, girl, u done 😆

    • Yaaaaaasss January 26, 2015

      Las Vegas wouldn’t invite Heara because she would need to be at the least iconic. She was only relevant for about two years almost a decade ago. Nice wishful thinking. That was thotful of you.

  7. Stephy Jackson January 26, 2015

    THE LEGENDARY DIANA ROSS! I saw her live 3x already. She is just a diva. She serves good whisper vocals & diva outfits. I love her. Janet Jackson needs to get ha man’s money & finance a HUGE world tour for her. Her songs & discography is too creative for just a small show in Vegas tbh… But, maybe she can’t dance like she use to. I still would rather see Janet than Mariah, J Ho, SHITNEYYY & Diana.

    • smh January 26, 2015

      you sound so damn stupid!

      • Stephy Jackson January 26, 2015

        I don’t know how you can “hear” me… But ok. Ummmm do me a favor & stay the FUCKKK up outta my reply section!

    • Lolz January 26, 2015

      Lol at whisper vocals.

  8. carlitos January 26, 2015

    Bring back TONI!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 🙂

  9. Stephy Jackson January 26, 2015

    “Queens of Pop Madonna and Janet Jackson”

    DEAD, uh uh… Madonna is the ONLY Queen & she will NEVER be found in Vegas. She can still sell out Stadiums globally. Y’all tried it tho.

    • Sean January 26, 2015

      The only place Janet is ever referred to as a queen of pop is this pathetic blog and the Janet loving queens who worship the fallen star. Anyone with a gun held to their head would admit that title is Madonna’s and Madonna’s alone.

      • JOHNVIDAL January 27, 2015

        That´s a little bit true. Even Whitney was called that a few times during the 90s by some radio presenters here in Europe I remember, but never Janet. I suppose it is more an American thing since it is there where she had more success. I understand why her fans call her that though.

      • London1000 February 7, 2015

        @Sean: Not taking away from Madonna’s achievements. Janet is a far superior live performer . Janet still has a solid worldwide fan base in my opinion her music/videos has more of a cross over appeal which transcends to the urban and pop music market. I don’t really hear the younger generation talking about Madonna’s music or her Videos. Janet’s music/vids in my opinion are more influential, and stand the test of time.

    • ziyah February 3, 2015

      I may not like Madonna like too much but it’s true Madonna is 56 and still sells out arenas. Also lets not forget Janet has the highest grossing tour debut in history with 62,000,000 with 2 million in attendance.

      • ziyah February 3, 2015

        The Rhythm Nation Worldtour. And to me Madonna only is selling out arenas because Janet is on break.

  10. LB January 26, 2015

    Hey David, why didn’t you report that I bet – Ciara, is on iTunes?

    • FutureCiara January 26, 2015

    • FutureCiara January 26, 2015

      He wont post about it until after it performs on the iTunes charts. Ciara has some work to do.

    • BeyRihLiyah January 26, 2015

      because nobody cares about this neverbeen and besides who wants to hear a grown a$$ man whine and whisper on a break up song talking about I bet you gonna miss me (SIGH)

      • FAF January 26, 2015

        ^ obviously u because u can quote it 😆

        out of Aaliyah material to listen to??? 🙁 poor thing

        aaliyah NEVER BEEN a writer 😆

      • Yaaaaaasss January 26, 2015

        @FAF Aaliyah #neverbeen a Grammy winner but her legacy has been constantly talked about sincer her heavenly ascent 14 years ago. And #ibet Heara’s legacy won’t ever be talked about because she has none

      • BeyRihLiyah January 26, 2015

        @FAF YAWN!you have the worst attempts of so called drags out of everybody on this site

        anyways
        —————————————————-
        Aaliyah the Self titled album > Anything Ci-n**** have and will ever release 🙂

      • Al January 27, 2015

        Eh when will we see the day of a Ciara biopic haha never only fan made by her fans

  11. Stephy Jackson January 26, 2015

    Hey, LovelyBird

  12. DanYiel Teflon January 26, 2015

    I’ll pass on all the lady’s performing in Vegas….

  13. Lolz January 26, 2015

    I can’t imagine Janet in Vegas. She’s too much of a huge performer for that!

    • Spunkypoop January 26, 2015

      I totally agree! One minute I’m like yay! then another minute I’m like I don’t want another Up Close and Personal feel tour from her…you feel me?

  14. smh January 26, 2015

    One thing about Janet is we won’t know unless she says something! Stop falling for the crap.

  15. I STAN(D) FOR TALENT January 26, 2015

    No way. Janet is married to a Billionaire. Even if she wanted her recording contract terminated, she could pay off her label. As much as I want a Janet album just like anybody else, the reality is that we might never hear from her again. 🙁 And as for Diana Ross, bring it!!!!!! 😀

    • smh January 26, 2015

      Janet isn’t signed to a label.

      • I STAN(D) FOR TALENT January 26, 2015

        I never said she was. Those were all “IF” statements.

  16. I STAN(D) FOR TALENT January 26, 2015

    Not FutureShit clinging to RnB charts. Lol!!!! Ciara is done. The sooner you and the the F-squad accept that, the better for everyone, especially your sanity. 😀

  17. Sherry January 26, 2015

    Yaaaassss Janet slay me boo! She is one of my absolute faves and I would love to see her in concert!

  18. Naomi January 26, 2015

    I thought Diana Ross was already in Vegas tbh

  19. Suicide Blonde January 26, 2015

    Lol at this report and the lies, Madonna haha, you invented that because Janet is rumored to join a vegas residency and you don’t like the idea lmao, The Queen is already planning her next tour, you know a real one.

  20. The Truth Emeritus January 26, 2015

    Vegas is a huge accomplishment and one of the largest “stages” to play. All the greats have and will play Vegas. There is nothing wrong with this at all. Some you haters favs couldn’t sell out a high school gym so fall back.

  21. Royalkev January 26, 2015

    Hmmm, I have to see it to believe it! Janet in Vegas would be such an unexpected move for her right now!

  22. Gee January 26, 2015

    Vegas seems to be the move right now that is some good money and it’s better than touring the globe one place for a certain period and fans can enjoy their favorite artist and a nice vacation all rolled into one.

  23. Meteorite January 26, 2015

    Hmm chile, imagine if Madonna did take a Vegas deal?! The gays would flock from all around the world putting all the other gurls put business lol Nonetheless all these different talented ladies will make for stiff competition

  24. Tyler January 26, 2015

    SLAAAYYYYY. Two legends who’ve paved the way for all of the R&B Queens and even some Pop Divas!

  25. uc4rihrih January 27, 2015

    am here for the real legends of music janet diana & mariah carey. beyonce with her popping ass cant touch their legacy

  26. Pop January 27, 2015

    I DON’T BUY THAT JANET IS DOING VEGAS, AND IF SHE IS THEN IT CAN HARDLY BE CALLED A RESIDENCY. JUST A FEW STOPS ON A TOUR THAT THATS BEING PUT TOGETHER. TIRED OF THE RUMORED TOURS AND ARTICLES WITH FREAKING QUESTIONS MARKS.

  27. Era of Tin January 27, 2015

    What is this nonsense? Madonna would never lower herself to a Vegas residency. She doesn’t have to, she can still sell tickets on her own mega headlining stadium tours. Some of those other names may have seen their star fall so low that Vegas is the best they can do, but not Madonna. You just threw her name in there to make the others seem not as pathetic for it. 😆

  28. jjallday January 27, 2015

    Omg….can you imagine going to Vegas and seeing all of the queens in one week….I would die!!!!!!
