Jennifer Lopez might land a Las Vegas residency. According to TMZ “The Boy Next Door” star made $410,000 for her New Year’s Eve performance at Caesar’s Palace.
Sources say the gig was to see if Lopez was a sufficient draw for a full-on residency. Last October it was reported that the “American Idol” judge was in the final stages of making a deal to perform at The Axis at Planet Hollywood. Her offer was $350K per show. Britney Spears is currently performing at the same venue and makes $310K per show.
However Caesar’s Palace is more than pleased with Lopez’s New Year’s Eve performance and it looks like that’s the place that will reel her in.
Another singer in the running is Mariah Carey, who is also in negotiations for a residency. Her deal would also be worth more than Britney Spears’ two-year $30 million contract as well. If things go well for the “Hero” crooner, she could be belting out her hits by the holidays in 2015.
Lopez and a Las Vegas residency sounds like a great idea but what about her careers in film and television?
She’s been promoting “The Boy Next Door” via Instagram. Yesterday she posted a selfie.
Today she posted a photo with co-star Ryan Guzman.
During the film’s press junket today, she was asked by US Weekly if she and ex-boyfriend Casper Smart were getting back together. She replied, “I’m single right now.”
“I think being on my own has been really great for me,” she added. “There was a time where I was just like ‘Ehhh, I’m just not going to deal with anybody, I just want to be on my own.’ Now I’m getting back into the mix. For right now, I just have no announcements to make.”
Do you think Jennifer Lopez in a Las Vegas residency is a better fit than Mariah Carey getting the deal?
