After news broke this morning that Britney's little sister Jamie Lynn Spears was engaged, sources now confirm that she married fiance Jamie Watson this evening at Audubon Tea Room in New Orleans, Louisiana.
Jamie Lynn's adorable 5 year old Maddie was flower girl and carried a bouquet of pink and white flowers.
This is Jamie's first marriage and second engagement -- her first engagement to Maddie's dad Casey Aldridge fell through in 2010.
Big sister Britney, along with her boyfriend David Lucado and two sons Sean, 8 and Jayden , 7 were present as well.
Among the star-studded concert-goers attending the debut of Britney Spears' 'Piece of Me' show at Planet Hollywood in Las Vegas over the weekend were Katy Perry and Miley Cyrus.
Both of the A-list entertainers were in Sin City for other gigs and decided to take in the first official performance kicking off Britney's two-year residency.
The 'ROAR' singer will entertain at a private New Year's Eve party on Tuesday and the 'Wrecking Ball' celeb was set to appear at the grand opening of Beacher's Madhouse just down the street at MGM Grand.
Billboard described Brit's 24-song Vegas show as "a non-stop hits bonanza." The 90-minute show featured a massive rotating tree, pyrotechnics, rain, fire, an army of dancers and the singer "flying."
Among those walking the red carpet were television and film actress Ivana Milicevic, 'Extra' host Mario Lopez and former 'Idol' runner-up Adam Lambert.
Selena Gomez also took in the action according to social media, though she apparently shunned the red carpet. The former Disney celeb tweeted, "Sia!! Thank you soooo much for taking me to Britney!!!! Ahhhh"
Britney interacted with Miley, who was seated in the front row during the high energy performance. The bump and grind session was likely orchestrated beforehand and included a make out interlude with two of Spears' female dancers.
The pop princess did some grinding as the 'BANGERZ' star jumped up and down and pumped her arm in the air. Check it out in the video clip below:
Pop princess Britney Spears will kick off her two-year residency in Las Vegas on Friday, December 27, but a young and hip group of casino industry workers got a sneak peek last night.
The 32-year-old entertainer debuted her 85-minute Britney: Piece of Me show at Planet Hollywood's The Axis theater Thursday night as a crowd of appreciative Sin City employees showed their appreciation during her final full run-through.
She reportedly flew 30 feet over the stage, thanks to wires, and blasted through nearly two-dozen songs on the 100-foot stage. Sixty video projectors are used to bombard the set with graphic effects during the stage extravaganza that includes lots of costume changes.
Tonight's opening promises to be a star-studded event as Brit begins the latest chapter in her successful career that began more than two decades ago.
Vegas veteran Holly Madison of Peep Show fame made an interesting observation about Britney's new Vegas theater act. She said, "Vegas audiences are different from anywhere else. People come in, they're drunk, they've been walking around in the heat all day." She cautions those planning to take in Piece of Me, "Because of the bottle service, don't let it get out of control. Pace yourself. It's a great experience."
Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino welcomed pop princess Britney Spears with open arms Tuesday, a prelude to her 2-year residency that will kick off on Dec. 27.
Timed to coincide with her 32nd birthday and the release of her much-anticipated album Britney Jean, she arrived with great fanfare in a restored 1958 Chevy Impala convertible with eight black SUVs as escorts.
Spears was rocking a black cocktail dress featuring a rhinestone top as she clutched an armload of roses. When she was handed a microphone, she told the crowd, "This is my city now so I can't wait to see you guys opening night."
Her show, 'Piece Of Me,' will have a club-like atmosphere in an auditorium that recently underwent a $20 million renovation with lighting, sound and an extended stage to accommodate her action packed show. The 4,600 person capacity extravaganza will run 90-100 minutes and feature 21 of Spears hits plus songs from her new album.
Britney revealed, "We're going to have water, rain, everything. The show will be completely different from what everybody might be expecting. It's the best project I've ever tackled. It couldn't be more exciting."
Britney Spears released her official album track list Tuesday on Twitter and fans of her former child star sister will be pleased to know that Jamie Lynn Spears will be featured on one of the singles.
Spears tweeted, "Sneaky hackers always trying to ruin my surprises. Here is the TRUE #BritneyJeanTrackList."
Their duet single 'Chillin' With You,' from Brit's eighth studio album Britney Jean, is just one of fourteen tracks. The RCA Records release is slated for the day after Thanksgiving - November 29, 2013.
Nickelodeon ended a lucrative six year television contract with Jamie Lynn after discovering that the 'Zoey 101' celebrity was pregnant at the tender age of 16. Daughter Maddie, 5, lives with her mother in Nashville and recently shared lunch with her at school.
Brit seems pretty excited about the collaboration and tweeted, "So SOOO beyond excited to have my baby sis @jamielynnspears on the album. <3 <3 <3 And @Tip!!! My homie."
Jamie Lynn responded, "I'm excited to work with my sis, but even more excited for y'all to hear what I've been working sooo hard on the past 5 years! #staytuned"
We hate to point out the obvious, but the graphics and theme in Britney Spears' music video for her new single 'Work B*tch' closely mimic Miley Cyrus' neon light-inspired Bangerz artwork.
If timing is everything, then Cyrus came up with the idea first, sharing her album cover artwork with the world on Aug. 24. Spears music video was shot Sept. 7-10 in Malibu. Another possibility suggests Britney's camp was cooking the idea and Miley's peeps caught wind of it.
On the cover of her album Britney Jean, the 31-year-old pop princess went with a similar neon-light illumination and the same stylized B, which we are told is an exact replication of her signature.
Spears decided that a nude pose with the neon-lit title would also be a great look - not unlike that already crafted by the 20-year-old 'Wrecking Ball' singer.
They say that imitation is the best form of flattery but it feels like a lack of imagination on somebody's part. Britney claims to appreciate Miley's style. That said, which of these celebs is the true creative genius?
Britney Spears gave the UK's Capital FM Breakfast Show hosts an exclusive scoop Monday regarding the name of her 8th studio album.
The pop princess , 31, smiled and softly whispered the title ... 'Britney Jean.'
She explained, "It's a personal album. And all my family, they always call me Britney Jean. It's a term of endearment and I just wanted to share that with my fans!"
Her new album, produced by will.i.am, drops on December 3 on RCA Records. This is her first album release on this label after breaking ties with Jive Records in 2012. The lead single 'Work B*tch' was released on Sept. 17.
Spears teased two other songs: a ballad 'Perfume' that she described as "really beautiful," and a "really cool" single titled 'Aliens.'
During the radio interview, Spears nervously wound her headphone cord in a circular motion and then rubbed one arm as if she was trying to get rid of a deep itch.
She tweeted this morning, "Cat's out of the bag people... #BritneyJean!!! Bringing ALL of me to the music... DECEMBER 3."
Britney Spears has released her 'Work Bitch' music video and we must say -- she looks incredible! The footage was shot in the Nevada desert, with a great view of her future home.
The Pop Princess took over The CW network Tuesday night to premiere the visuals for the lead single off her upcoming eighth studio album.
They say that timing is everything. Britney will get an opportunity to perform all of her new music during a two-year residency at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino in Sin City beginning the last week of December - a few short weeks after the new album is released.
Ben Mor directed Spears' latest body of work and indicated the video "sets a higher bar." Comparing the new video to some of her other work, he made this observation, "I think this is more adult Britney ... You can't have soft visuals for a song called 'Work Bitch,' and we sure as hell didn't."
The video features elaborate costumes, whips, sharks, fast cars and people blowing up. Britney is in fantastic shape and appears more than ready to take on Vegas.
Britney Spears hinted during a recent interview that her 8-year-old son Preston would be joining her on stage during her Piece of Me show at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino in Las Vegas. Her ex-husband is not in favor of that particular scenario.
She broached the subject with this statement, "Preston will probably be on stage but I think Jayden would have a hard time with it."
It didn't take long for the press to chat up that little nugget with the boys' father Kevin Federline. He responded, "We'll see about that, won't we."
Federline acknowledged that he wouldn't mind if Preston was 25 but not now.
Regarding the likelihood of Kevin catching one of Brit's shows in Sin City, he responded, "Nah, not my thing." He is actually a big fan of Vegas and usually spends his time at the craps tables.
Britney's camp was quick to squash the story and told TMZ that the entertainer was "joking." We're not so sure about that. During her Femme Fatale tour, her handsome young sons danced on stage several times.
The two-year residency, featuring 100 shows, will earn her a hefty $300,000 per appearance. She'll walk away with a tidy $30 million over the course of the gig, which begins on Dec. 27, 2013 -- 'Piece of Me' tickets here.
Britney Spearssat down with Extra host Mario Lopez Thursday to talk about her two-year Las Vegas residency and hype a yet untitled album set to drop in December.
Lopez surprised the pop princess by bringing out a vintage fashion doll dressed just like Britney was in her 'One More Time' music video. The still sealed box, circa 1999, featured a see-through window so that the real entertainer could get a good glimpse of her doll-self.
Mario said, "I want you to see how cute she is." Spears wailed dramatically, "She's not cute..."
Then the former 'Saved By the Bell' celeb showed her his own boy doll, circa 1992. Spears gushed over the Slater character and said she never missed his show back in the day.
She signed hers and he signed his and they exchanged the keepsake items and posed for a photo that he shared on Twitter.
Spears tweeted, "Lots of fun chatting with my friend @MarioLopezExtra!" She included a video of their amusing exchange--check it out below:
We found it interesting, and not surprising, that the sometimes controversial Britney had nothing but praise for Miley Cyrus. When asked about her VMA performance, Spears said emphatically, "She is on fire right now. She is on fire."
