Britney Spears Announces Las Vegas Residency 'Domination' Is Cancelled

On her social media today, pop star Britney Spears announced the cancellation of her upcoming residency in Las Vegas, "Domination," which was set to debut February 13.

“I don’t even know where to start with this, because this is so tough for me to say,” says the 37-year-old singer. “I will not be performing my new show Domination. I’ve been looking forward to this show and seeing all of you this year, so doing this breaks my heart.”

Stating that “it’s important to always put your family first,” Spears cites her father’s recent health complications as the impetus for her decision.

Jamie Spears suffered a ruptured colon two months ago and underwent emergency surgery in Las Vegas. He remained hospitalized for 28 days.

Brit says she needs to put her “full focus and energy” on her family for now, and hoped that fans understand.

She closed by thanking fans for their continued support and prayers.




I don’t even know where to start with this, because this is so tough for me to say. I will not be performing my new show Domination. I’ve been looking forward to this show and seeing all of you this year, so doing this breaks my heart. However, it’s important to always put your family first… and that’s the decision I had to make. A couple of months ago, my father was hospitalized and almost died. We’re all so grateful that he came out of it alive, but he still has a long road ahead of him. I had to make the difficult decision to put my full focus and energy on my family at this time. I hope you all can understand. More information on ticket refunds is available on britneyspears.com. I appreciate your prayers and support for my family during this time. Thank you, and love you all… always.

In a statement to Variety, Spears’ rep said the singer is taking “an indefinite work hiatus” until further notice. 

“Domination” was scheduled for a 32-show run set to debut February 13 at the new Park MGM resort in Las Vegas.

It’s unclear if the production will be rescheduled at a later date.

“Domination” was to be the follow-up to Spears initial Las Vegas residency, "Piece of Me," which ended a four-year run at Planet Hollywood’s Axis Theater in early 2018.

Britney Spears Shares Photos Of Her Muscle-Bound Dancers

Not really sure who we are more jealous of in these photos: the hot dudes surrounding pop legend Britney Spears, or Britney herself.

The “Radar” songstress has been on the road this summer as she’s taken her Piece of Me tour (originally in Las Vegas for several years) cross country in the United States. The third leg of the tour will have her going overseas to Europe, where she’ll make stops in England, Germany, Denmark and several other Britney-loving countries.

She just wrapped up three nights in Hollywood, Florida at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino, which marked the last stops on the second leg of her tour. She decided to celebrate this momentous occasion with a fruit plate and her sexy male dancers… many of which were shirtless.

“Me and the boys enjoying a fruit plate before last night's show,” she captioned. “Thanks for the hospitality and perfect end to our US run, Florida!! Now off to the UK and Europe!!!!”

The photo features a bevy of hunks surrounding Britney, one of which is carrying a big fruit platter. Oh, the jealousy we feel of said fruit platter.

Who would you pick out of this delicious lineup?

Naughty Boy: Britney Spears Spanks Andy Cohen During Her Concert

Andy Cohen got to experience what many of us would love to do on any given day: get spanked by the one and only Britney Spears

The Watch What Happens Live host joined the pop legend on stage during her tour stop in New York City this week (Radio City Music Hall to be exact) where he became her "victim" of sorts for a short period of time.

He got down on all fours at one point and took it good while Britney did her song "Freakshow" from the 2007 album Blackout. The funniest part about all of this was that even when she saw him, and kind of knew who he was, she still didn't remember his name. "I think you all know who this is … Give it up for him!” she exclaimed.

Britney also threw him some shade after she signed a t-shirt for him and he walked off the stage. "Ow … ears … he’s loud.”

Naturally Andy shared all about the naughty experience on his Instagram Wednesday, captioning it with "“He’s Loud!” - @britneyspears#ItsBritneyBitch (by the way crawling onstage is my new favorite thing in the world and I want to do it every day)."

Andy also discussed the situation in length on his SiriusXM show Radio Andy, where he knew he was going to be on stage ahead of time but didn't want to know anything else.

He also mentioned not taking an edible prior to it happening, because he didn't know how "that would go on stage." Good thinking. 


Sam Asghari Speaks Out On How He Lost 100 Pounds

Britney Spears' chiseled beau Sam Asghari wasn't always the muscle stud that he is right now, as he recently revealed how he was able to lose 100 pounds.

The 24-year-old said that his weight started to propel when he was cut from his college football team. In doing so, he eventually made his way up to 290 pounds.

“I was eating Doritos for breakfast, fast food, sugar, candy, no protein, a lot of carbs, and drinking sugary sodas,”he told Men’s Health. “My nutrition was extremely horrible. The stress and the fear of not going anywhere [in life] combined gave me my depression.”



Eventually he figured out that these habits were no good for him and he made a drastic change six months after leaving the team.

“I could either continue going through the same thing or I could give it another 100 percent,” he said. “I didn’t want to have to deal with that depression and disappointment anymore. I had to restart.”

Before he became known as Britney's other half, Sam worked three jobs: two of which he quit in order to make fitness his full-time job. That parlayed into him developing his body into what it is right now, which then led to many other exciting aspects of his life.

It was a tricky process, however, to get to this point. He became too obsessive with his new regime: measuring his body fat percentage daily and limiting his calorie intake to 1,500, but he was eventually able to find a good balance. In six months, he lost nearly 100 pounds, and was down to 9 percent body fat.



In doing so, he became a fitness model and booked gigs with several high-profile artists including his appearance in the Fifth Harmony video for "Work". Then he appeared in Britney's video for "Slumber Party", which led to the two of them becoming the couple they are today, and the rest is history.

Both Britney and Sam have posted videos of them working out on Instagram quite frequently, and well, they are just too adorable.



Stronger together @samasghari

“The exercises, I come up with them, but the videos are because of my better half. She’s the video director,” he said. “It’s a very fun thing, and I look back at them and smile. Working out together is always nice and we try to do it a couple times. It’s super healthy, mentally and physically. It takes your mind off of everything else.”

He also admitted to working out to one of Britney's classic hits: "Stronger." Aww. 

Keep up the good work, handsome. 

Britney Spears Works Up a Sweat With Her Smoking Hot Beau Sam Asghari

Pop icon Britney Spears has been giving us some major fitness goals lately, as her Instagram page is riddled with photos and videos of the "Toxic" singer working out and showcasing her amazing body.  She has one major accessory in a lot of the videos that only enhances just how good looking she is, and that would be her absurdly hot boyfriend Sam Asghari.

Britney and Sam have been going strong for a while now, ever since they met on the set of her music video "Slumber Party" last year.  Sam, who is a personal trailer and a male model that has been featured in several muscle-related magazines, is easily a sight for sore eyes as there is so much to desire on him that its sort of hard to figure out a starting point.

She posted a video of them, captioned "Stronger together", that showcases them doing some "couples workouts" that include the art of kissing and working up a sweat all at the same time.  Both are in pretty incredible shape, as Sam easily bench presses Britney and she makes doing a handstand look like a piece of cake when many of us (present company included) know that it definitely isn't.

Take a look at just how hot these two get below:

Britney Dances With Her Shirtless Boyfriend and its Everything

Britney Spears was the talk of the gay town at the GLAAD Media Awards in Los Angeles on Thursday, where the pop icon received their annual Vanguard Award (presented to a member of the entertainment community who has made a significant difference in promoting equal rights for LGBT people). Ricky Martin was on hand to give her the coveted honor, which in past years has been presented to other gay icons like Cher, Elizabeth Taylor and Liza Minnelli just to name a few. 

Amid all the gay hoopla that she was ecstatic to be around (as was Gus Kenworthy and Adam Rippon who were lucky enough to get a photo with her), she still found time to get in a couple of dance moves with her unbelievably handsome boyfriend Sam Asghari.

Britney and Sam have been dating for quite some time now, as they first met back on the set of her music video "Slumber Party" last year.  Although they kept their relationship quiet early on, the adorable twosome has been posting pic after pic of them together all over the world, and this latest video of them together proves three things: Britney can still dance her ass off, Sam looks amazing both with a shirt on and without, and there is hope that he may just be the man of her dreams.

The two get up close and personal while dancing to India.Arie's song "Brown Skin" before ending the video with a sweet kiss.  Awe!  For all you diehard Britney fans out there, this is definitely a vid you are going to want to see, cherish and adore all weekend long.

Take a look:



some days you just got to dance! @samasghari

It’s Britney the Survivor, Bitch

The legendary Miss Britney Spears has had a storied career; with a catalog of unparalleled hits. She has become one of the most celebrated and endearing LGBT icons of her time. Her voice is unmistakable and she has the distinct ability to whip her gay fans into moments of unabashed frenzy when she utters the word ‘bitch.’  Spears’ journey hasn’t been an easy one as her struggles with mental illness and addiction have been well documented. At one point, media outlets were preparing her obituary.

Looking back on her darkest times, she was unfairly exploited by her ex-boyfriends, the press, and fairweather fans.  She is the ultimate definition of the word survivor. Through it all, she has never wavered in her support of the LGBT community.  She is set to receive the Vanguard Award at the 29th annual GLAAD Media Awards on April 12. A deserving recipient whose story mirrors struggles so many in the LGBT community encounter.  

Break-ups are difficult emotionally, especially if you are not the alpha in the relationship.  Spears and Justin Timberlake were the ‘it couple’ of their day and an entire generation of young adults looked to them as their couple goals.  Media cashed in on the pair and profited off their every move. After their break-up, Timberlake was positioned as the hero and Spears the villain.  His solo career was built off the back of Spears with an utter disregard for her humanity and emotional well being.

He capitalized on ‘taking her down a peg or two’ publicly by releasing music and using his public persona to shame Spears.  Her character smeared while he became the sympathetic figure. He played into the wounded, faultless victim. The thing is he made a fortune and sold millions of albums off his ‘act.’  Who can forget the song and video for “Cry Me A River?” Timberlake has a history of throwing strong women under the bus. Janet Jackson, anyone? Spears never once used her platform to tear him down as he had done to her.  Cue the beginning of her public mental health deterioration. Any relationship that has love is going to hurt when it ends. It takes a weak man to have added more hurt onto her already heavy heart.

As Spears’ mental breakdowns and drug use progressed the public witnessed her every move. Paparazzi and media recklessly exploited her fall from grace.  Labels like crazy were placed on her. Videos of her crying incoherently, shaving her head, and her infamous MTV Video Music Awards performance of “Gimme More” became part of the news cycle.  Late night comedians and even journalists used Spears’ troubles as punchlines; she became their joke. She had the ‘perfect storm’ engulf her. Heartbreak, intense public attention, her sex symbol status, and her mental issues and addiction all hit when she was most vulnerable.  

It should have been obvious to all that Spears was in a desperate situation.  It is reprehensible that the press added to her insurmountable struggles and downward spiral.   They fed into the power of stigmas and used them against her. They recognized her life was in serious jeopardy, but continued to make light of what she was going through.  Instead of offering compassion they shamed her for sport.

The message sent to the public and those battling mental illness and addiction was an unfortunate reinforcement of stigmas and that those who need help are undeserving of compassion.  The media circus surrounding Spears was detrimental to her recovery and in the fact that instead of providing an education on these issues they stigmatized those suffering.

Most of those who endure these afflictions do so in silence.  Few fully understand what they are going through because mental illness and addiction are rarely talked about socially.  It takes committed healthcare professionals to diagnose and treat these conditions, but when going through the throws alone one is left to ‘white-knuckle it.’  How frightening must it have been for Spears, one of the most famous women in the world, to realize she was struggling, but not understand what was happening to her.  Having her story made so public and taking on a mountain of negative press must have been unbelievably traumatic. One can only imagine.

With the help of her family and treatment team Spears was able to turn her life around.  Her strength, bravery, and determination enabled her to overcome. She has reconnected with her children, had one of the most successful residencies the Las Vegas strip has ever seen, and is set to receive the GLAAD Media Vanguard Award.  Her spark is back and better than ever. She has certainly come a long way since her “Blackout” days and along the way served as a valuable resource for many others; including the author of this article. She navigated uncharted territory that most wouldn't’t have survived.  

Britney Spears gave a much needed, albeit unintended, voice to those affected by mental illness and addiction.  Her recovery not only gave insight and hope to others; it educated the public. Her experience has since helped ease stigmas and changed ignorant ideologies.  She brought the importance of compassion to light. Her LGBT fans never gave up on her, even during her ‘rock-bottom.’ She in turn never turned her back on the LGBT.  Mental health and addiction issues are alarmingly high in the gay experience and it is safe to assume that Spears and the LGBT community have a very special bond. The meme is true: “if Britney could make it through 2007, then you can make it through anything.”  Now, get to work bitch!

Gay Extravaganza! Jim Parsons & Adam Rippon Join Britney Spears at the 2018 GLAAD Media Awards

Britney Spears will be sharing the stage with two extraordinarily fabulous gentlemen on April 12th, as Jim Parsons and Adam Rippon will be in attendance at the 2018 GLAAD Media Awards in Beverly Hills. 

Whereas Adam is simply attending the ceremony, Jim will be receiving a very prestigious honor: GLAAD's Stephen F. Kolzak Award.  The Stephen F. Kolzak Award is given "to an LGBTQ media professional who has made a significant difference in promoting LGBTQ acceptance," per GLAAD.  The award is named after a legendary casting director who devoted the last part of his life to raising awareness in the entertainment industry about the discrimination faced by LGBTQ people as well as those living with HIV.

Past recipients of this award include Chaz Bono, Wanda Sykes, Melissa Etheridge, Pedro Zamora and Alan Ball.

"Jim Parsons’ talent, humor and impressive body of work have made him one of the most visible and beloved out LGBTQ actors today,” said GLAAD president & CEO Sarah Kate Ellis. “Parsons not only proudly tells LGBTQ stories through his roles, but also works behind the camera with his husband, Todd, to tell LGBTQ stories that raise the bar for Hollywood and inspire acceptance.”

It was announced back in February that Britney will be receiving this year's GLAAD Vanguard Award, which is presented annually to a member of the entertainment community who has made a significant difference in promoting equal rights for LGBTQ people.
