After half a decade, Britney Spears is hot again. Her new album, Femme Fatale, is a critical and commercial success. Her last-minute Palms performances were well-received, and now, if reports are to be believed, Britney is considering bringing her renewed hotness to Vegas on a more-permanent basis. Someone high up at Caesars Palace told The Daily Mirror that Vegas casinos are actively pursuing the pop princess for a local residency. Presumably, they’re telling her that a Vegas gig would give her more time with her kids. That Vegas is such a crazy place her craziness would go relatively unnoticed. What the casino execs probably aren’t saying is how badly we need the 29-year-old (or at least someone in the same age bracket). Our current headliners are fantastic, but they don’t exactly scream youth. It’s time we made a move for a younger demographic. So c’mon down Brit, and bring Taylor Swift with you.
