Britney Spears announces 'Piece of Me' Planet Hollywood residency on 'Good Morning America'

The pop princess has announced a 16-date residency gig at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino in Las Vegas. The show is called "Britney: Piece of Me" and kicks off Friday, Dec. 27. Tickets go on sale Sept. 20, with prices ranging from $59 to $179.

According to TMZ, the Britney deal may be bigger than what has been announced -- a two-year contract that stipulates 48 shows a year, with a cool payday of $310,000 per show. Perhaps the contract is for 16 shows initially and then the casino will see how popular they are.

Spears tells GMA that the show will feature new material as well as her greatest hits and that she's been training five hours a day.

She also gave a performance of her new song, "Work B****," during the announcement. The song leaked over the weekend but has now officially dropped. There is no word yet about her next album.
