5 Times Britney Spears' Vegas residency has left her miserable

For Cailyn Cox, writing isn't just a hobby, it's her life. Passionate about Hollywood, she makes it her mission to find the most entertaining celebrity gossip for SheKnows readers. And when she's not enthralled in the celeb world, she's ...

We've never felt so bad for a millionaire before, but Britney Spears is so unhappy

Britney Spears just got a massive pay increase for her Las Vegas residency — a whopping $475,000 per show — but even though she's raking in the cash we don't think that the "Gimme More" singer is particularly happy in Sin City, and here's why.

Was Britney supposed to play an assassin in "Perfume" video?


Her sales are dismal

According to RadarOnline, Spears has a shockingly low number of people attending her Piece of Me show.

The site reports that for her Halloween performance "nearly half of many sections in the 4,500-seat stadium are empty, and the $525-a-pop VIP section is a complete ghost town."

It cannot be fun performing for an almost half-empty stadium.

She was accused of lip-syncing

At one of Spears' Las Vegas residency gigs, she got accused of lip-syncing while she performed her hit song "Perfume." The most scandalous part? The songstress hadn't even pre-recorded her own voice because according to Billboard, it was apparently Sia's acoustic version of the track that the audience was treated to.

The curious case of Britney Spears' voice: Where did it go?


Her boyfriend cheated on her

Yes, it's not Spears' Las Vegas residency's fault that her now ex- boyfriend David Lucado was a douche and decided to cheat on her, but it did happen while she was in Sin City.

Spears confirmed the rumors that she and Lucado had split during one of her shows, when she told the crowd, "Well, by now everyone knows my boyfriend cheated on me."

She's getting tired

Spears has signed on for another three years in Las Vegas, but she already looks like she needs a break, because her dance moves are apparently less than impressive.

According to RadarOnline, a concertgoer previously wrote a message on Planet Hollywood's complaints log after attending one the pop princess's shows. It read, "the lethargic dancing along with the terrible miming….we decided to leave the venue. The show was shockingly fake and Britney looked bored as hell, to put it bluntly." Yikes!

Celine Dion is squashing her

Britney Spears is not the first star to secure a Las Vegas residency, but while Celine Dion and Shania Twain killed it with their sales, Spears has been left in their wake. Not to mention that Dion is making much more money than Spears. According to E! News, Dion reportedly makes $33 million per year for her gig at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace.
